Blueberry Corn Powerhouse Muffins

These muffins are like little powerhouses!  They are loaded with omega 3's & 6's, fiber, protein - you  name it!  I used white cornmeal, but feel free to use yellow cornmeal.  They're not overly sweet, so you can increase the agave nectar to your liking.

You'll Need:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white or yellow cornmeal
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1 scoop chia seeds (I used the scoop that comes with the seeds - approx. 2 tbsp.)
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup vanilla almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1/4 cup raw agave nectar (add more if you want a sweeter muffin)
1/4 cup oil (I used grapeseed oil)
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp. shredded coconut (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tbsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.  Mix together wet ingredients besides the blueberries and add to dry.  Stir until well combined and then fold in blueberries gently.  You can spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray or use paper liners.  The muffins stuck a little to the liners once done, but if you put them in the fridge for awhile the liners came off easily.   Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean once inserted.  Enjoy!  :)
