Dr Oz has been touting the superpowers of Chia Seeds… yes, the same ingredient used to sprout Chia Pets!  But what do you do with Chia Seeds?  Well, I posted this Chia Seed Pudding Recipe a while ago and have had great reviews from people who have tried it.  But I am excited about Doctor Oz’s Chia Seed Muffine Recipe too!
