For strawberry jam
- 2 cups chopped strawberries
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp lemon juice
For the muffins
- 1 1/2 cups almond four/meal
- 1/4 cup whole ground flax seed meal
- 3/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 medium bananas, (mashed)
- 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
- In a nonstick saucepan combine all the ingredients of the strawberry jam and cook on medium flame for 3-4 minutes or until strawberries soften. Lower the flame and mash strawberries with a food masher. Let it cook for 1 minute again on a medium flame and turn off the flame. Let it cool completely. The jam will thicken and become sticky.
- Preheat oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit and prepare a muffin tray with muffin liners.
- In a large mixing bowl combine almond flour, flax seed meal, hemp seeds, baking soda and salt. Mix very well until no lumps are left.
- Now, fold in strawberry jam and mashed banana into the dry ingredients. Mix it with the spatula until all the ingredients are well combined.
- Lastly, fold in chopped strawberries and mix gently.
- With the help of an ice cream scoop drop the muffin batter into each muffin liner placed in the muffin tray.
- Place the muffin tray at the bottom rack of the oven and bake it for 35 – 37 minutes or until the tester comes out clean.
- Take the tray out of the oven and let it cool completely.
- Since these muffins are oil free they might be slightly sticky to the muffin liner.
- Store them in a refrigerator for 4-5 days. When ready to eat just warm it for 5 seconds in the microwave to bring it to the room temperature. You may try it cold as well.
