Chia seeds banana bread muffins

Chia seeds banana bread muffins

Banana bread muffins with chia seeds, why? Well, chia seeds are pretty, very aesthetic and add a little crunch. But that is not why I did that : they are full of antioxydants and a good plant protein source too.

Why on Earth would you put butternut squash in a cake? I mean we already put carrots, beets and sometimes zucchinis so I figured why not? This picture doesn’t do it justice AT ALL. It is really moist and delicious.
