  • Method

    1. Preparation

      Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a 12 hole, 1/3 cup (80ml) capacity muffin tray with paper cases. Alternatively lightly grease holes with oil and line with large squares of baking paper.

    2. Chia seeds

      Place the chia seeds and water in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Set aside for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until a gel forms.

    3. Cinnamon sugar

      To prepare the cinnamon sugar, combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.

    4. Batter

      Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Add the blueberries and stir to coat. Add the buttermilk and oil to the chia gel and whisk to combine. Add chia mixture to the flour mixture. Using a spatula or large metal spoon fold together until just combined. Do not over mix. Batter should still be a little lumpy. Spoon mixture evenly into the prepared muffin tray, cups will be full. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

    5. Baking

      Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre. Leave in the pan for 3 minutes to cool slightly.Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. **If buttermilk is unavailable substitute natural yoghurt or 3/ 4 cup (180ml) full-cream milk and 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice which has been combined and left to stand for 10 minutes. **For a vegan alternative substitute coconut yoghurt for the buttermilk.
