Egg-Free Fruit Muffins

When my daughter was a baby we discovered she was allergic to egg and so I had to get quite inventive with egg-free baking. This recipe uses chia seeds instead of egg as a binder.

Healthy, delicious and perfect for lunch boxes, I sometimes still make these for breakfast at the weekends too, and what’s more, is they’re a quick and easy bake!
