  1. Preheat the oven to 400 °F

  2. In a bowl, combine the date puree, milk of your choice and egg.

  3. Add the pure vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, zest of 1 lemon and salt. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  4. Mix in the flour, chia seeds and blueberries until fully combined.

  5. Line a muffin pan with parchment paper or silicone liners. If you don’t have liners, lightly grease the pan- otherwise, everything will stick.

  6. Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin cups.

  7. Bake for about 40 minutes. Yum! Smells like happiness!
