  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds ground
  • 3 Tbsp. warm water
  • 3 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 cup Craisins
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ¾ Cup orange juice
  • 1 ½ tsp. apple cider vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray or use paper liners on 12 muffin cups. Set the pan aside.
  • In a small bowl, prepare the chia egg by mixing 1 Tbsp. of ground chia seeds with 3 Tbsp. warm water. Stir to mix and set aside to thicken.
  • In a blender or food processor, place the 3 cups of oats. Blend on high until the mixture turns into course flour like consistency.
  • In a large bowl, mix the oat-flour mixture, Craisins, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Add the olive oil, orange juice, apple cider vinegar and chia egg to the dry ingredients and mix just until the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full of batter.
  • Bake for 18 -20 minutes.

  • This recipe is not only gluten free, but egg free and dairy free too.
  • The muffin batter will be quite thick - it results in hearty muffins!
