  • Mini muffin tin, blender


Chia Jam:

  • 8-10 large strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp chia seeds


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana about 2 large bananas
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter + 3 Tbsp for filling
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup oat flour preferably store-bought
  • 2/3 cup quinoa flour
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Chia Jam:

  • Wash strawberries, remove the tops, and add to a blender with the maple syrup. Blend until smooth.
  • Transfer the puree to a small saucepan. Stir in the chia seeds and bring the mixture to a low simmer.
  • Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from heat. Let mixture cool completely.


  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, banana, peanut butter, milk, and syrup.
  • Add the dry ingredients directly into the bowl with the wet and stir to thoroughly combine.
  • Fill each cup 3/4 of the way full.
  • Add 1 teaspoon strawberry jam and 1/8 teaspoon creamy peanut butter to the center of the muffins; swirl around with a toothpick. Repeat with the remaining muffins.
  • Bake on the center rack for 8 - 9 minutes until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 2 - 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.


Resist the urge to not break into them; cooling them will allow everything to set properly.
If desired, reheat in the toaster oven or in the microwave.
