LEMON CHIA & BLACKBERRY CHIA MUFFINS

These muffins are grain flours free and with no sugar. When making these small treats, I would suggest to add some maple syrup, honey or agave nectar... but I am eating sugar free now so I will do that another time.

I made two versions of those. First one with lemon zest, the second one with blackberries.
