  2. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. In a small bowl, combine ground chia seeds with water and let sit.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, combine almond milk with lemon juice and let sit. Don’t panic as it curdles – it’s supposed to!
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  6. Add vanilla and chia seeds to almond milk/lemon juice mixture and whisk until combined.
  7. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just combined.
