How to Make Orange Chia Muffins

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. Mix the all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, chia seeds, and orange zest in a large bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the orange juice, applesauce, vegetable oil, and eggs.
4. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don’t overmix as this could lead to dense muffins.
5. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and fill each one about two-thirds full with the batter.
6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Tips for Making Perfect Orange Chia Muffins

1. Use fresh oranges for the juice and zest to get the best flavor.
2. You can substitute the vegetable oil with coconut oil for a healthier option.
3. Add a handful of nuts or dried fruits for extra texture and flavor.
