Blueberry Chia Mini-Muffins

I went on a bit of a muffin making binge this weekend. These little treats are tasty and packed with filling protein and fiber. Best of all, they have only 53 calories each! Filled with oat bran and antioxidant-rich chia seeds, these muffins are energizing and filling. You can eat them for breakfast or a snack. I made a huge batch and then froze them. You can defrost in the microwave in 30 seconds.
