BAKE ME: Banana Chia Seed Blackberry Muffins

Sometimes you just want a muffin for breakfast. Well, at least I do. Who’s with me?

While my banana chocolate chip muffins make for an amazing breakfast, they are little decadent to eat regularly. So, I created this banana chia seed blackberry muffins recipe (that I occasionally add a few chocolate chips to for good measure)! While it is still a muffin, it is packed with fruit (read: HEALTHY), antioxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids. What could be bad about that?

Fleischmann’s Unsalted Margarine, 1 stick, melted

All Purpose Flour, 1-½ cups

Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon

Sea Salt, ½ teaspoon

Baking Soda, 1/4 teaspoon

Ripe Bananas, 3-4, mashed

White Sugar, ½ cup

Brown Sugar, ½ cup

Eggs, 2

Vanilla Extract, 1 teaspoon

Fresh Blackberries, 1/2 cup

Chia Seeds, 3 teaspoons

Chocolate Chips, 1/2 cup (optional)


  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray your muffin pan with Pam or use these silicone baking cups.
  3. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sea salt and baking powder together in a medium-mixing bowl.
  4. In a separate large mixing bowl, mix together the melted margarine, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy.
  5. Slowly add the eggs, vanilla and mashed bananas.
  6. Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined.
  7. Fold in the chia seeds, blackberries and chocolate chips.
  8. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the batter into your muffin pan or baking cups, until each is about ¾ filled.
  9. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Cool for your blackberry muffins for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
