Chia Seed Muffins

With all the craze about chia seeds, I just had to try them in various things.  The chia pudding I made last week was good and I especially enjoyed them in the protein bites.  So the next step was to try them in baking.  And these muffins were quite good!  They were ideal warmed up for breakfast because they are not sweet like standard muffins.
