Chia Banana Breakfast Muffins

We love this vegan breakfast recipe for so many reasons. Least of which is the sneaky inclusion of an entire bottle of Mama Chia’s seed-filled drink. The rest of the ingredient list is packed with nutrition too, including almond butter and a freshly smashed banana.

If you’ve never tried a chia-based cookie or muffin before, this is a recipe to try! The moisture-absorbing seeds create great texture and pack a punch of delicious and healthy omega-3s plus protein. Serve up a batch for a lucky morning meeting or as a fun twist for an upcoming brunch spread. Serve topped with an extra dollop of almond butter and a slice of banana, plus a cold glass of almond milk!

Mamma Chia Banana Breakfast Muffins
Created by Sage Gordon
Makes 10 – 12 muffins


1 1/2 cups organic whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup organic oats
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp organic cinnamon
1/4 cup organic agave nectar
1/4 cup organic almond butter
1 cup organic banana, mashed
1 bottle Raspberry Passion Mamma Chia 


In a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: agave nectar, almond butter, mashed banana, and Mamma Chia. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients: wheat pastry flour, oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add wet to dry and mix until evenly moistened. 

For smaller muffins, divide evenly into a 12-cup muffin tin. Can also make 10 large muffins in larger muffin tin. Paper muffin cups recommended.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 18 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.

  1. I live in New Zealand, I can’t get Mamma Chia drinks or nay sort of Chia drinks. Is there another way to can I make this?

    • Hi Esther, Mamma Chia drinks are sold in 10 FL OZ bottles – it might take a bit of experimentation, but we suspect that using the same measurements of a berry or passion fruit juice + chia seed combo would yield similar results. Good luck!

  4. is oat bran the same as organic oats? this recipe looks really good and healthy 🙂

    • Hi Sam, organic oats and oat bran are not the same…although both delicious! You can find oat bran at your local grocery story or co-op in the same aisle (or bulk bin section) as organic oats.
