I do a lot of modifying recipes. This recipe was modified from Well Plated’s Healthy Banana Muffins to make them plant based a little less processed. They are so good and get the “we will have this again!” stamp of approval from the family.
 * How to make a Chia or Flax Egg – place 1 TBS of chia or flax seeds and 2.5 TBS water in a small bowl and stir. After a few minutes, stir again. Let sit for 5 minutes and then it is ready to use!
