Betty’s Kitchen Chi-Chi-Chi Chia Seed Muffins — Mother’s Day ✿ Recipe Video

New Cookbook, “The Bettyskitchen Collection, Second Edition” available on

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Chia Seed Muffins. Chia seeds are very nutritious, with a serving providing the potassium of 2 bananas, 3 times the antioxidants of blueberries, plus protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. Plus, the muffins taste wonderful!


1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
¾ cup plain yogurt
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup chia seeds
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
Cinnamon sugar (2 tablespoons sugar and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Line muffin pans with paper liners. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs, yogurt, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, chia seeds, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and blend until just combined. Do not overmix. Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full of batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly before removing from tin. Makes 12 generous regular muffins. Enjoy! Thanks to Susan M. Selasky for the information on chia seeds and the recipe for Chia Seed Muffins.
