  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • ¾ cup gluten-free oat flour (create your own by grinding oats in blender)
  • ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw/unrefined sugar (i.e. Sucanat or turbinado)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 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.
