I made these muffins recently when I had a bunch of over ripe bananas and a large bag of chia seeds waiting to be used. I googled #vegan #banana #chia and found this recipe. Normally I'm not a huge fan of gluten free muffins, but these ones were good, and the kids LOVED them! They are super easy to make, and turned out nice and moist.

I substituted ground flax for ground almonds, and rice flour instead of tapioca flour, as I didn't have any on hand.
