Made with almond butter, fresh lemon juice and pure maple syrup, these flourless muffins are a delicious spring snack that you won't feel guilty about!


  • 1 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water (or 1 egg)
  • 1/2 cup raw creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • Juice (about 2 tbsp) and zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Stir together chia seeds and water to make chia "egg." Set aside to gel for a few minutes.
  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender or food processor, adding chia egg last. Blend to combine. You may need to use a spatula to fully incorporate the almond butter and to get all the batter into the muffin tin.
  4. Pour batter evenly into muffin tin, filling almost to the top.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until muffins are set.
  6. Store in the refrigerator.
