I wanted to create a satisfying low carb dessert and this is what I came up with. The chia seeds helps to lower the net carbs and adds fiber to the muffins. The pure Lemon extract sure does pack a lot of flavor in these little muffins, and the walnuts on top adds lots of texture.

These muffins are perfect with a cup of coffee, and under 200 calories per muffins, makes them a healthy breakfast or snack choice, & they are moist and tasty as well. In lieu of some of the fat, I did use some applesauce. A real tasty and satisfying treat.
