Simple and delicious, this Gluten-Free Orange Chia Seed Bread is bursting with citrus flavor, chia seeds, and glazed with a sweet orange glaze.
Chia seeds are a super food and they make a great addition to any baked good, like this Gluten-Free Orange Chia Seed Bread. I started adding chia seeds to our muffins and breads a while back. It’s a great way for me to sneak in extra nutrition for my girls, and it lends a lovely texture.
I’ve been craving a good citrus flavored treat lately. Although the Gluten-Free Lemon Cake I made last week was super scrumptious, I wanted more citrus, so this week I made Gluten-Free Orange Chia Seed Bread using Vivian’s Live Again Gluten-Free, Whole Grain Muffin Mix.
I love the Vivian’s Live Again mixes because they are gluten-free and simple to use. The muffin mix is good on its own, but you can also add into other ingredients if desired. I love adding in chocolate chips, lemon or orange zest, and sometimes a mashed banana. It’s a versatile mix, and you only have to add a couple of ingredients.
Speaking of adding ingredients. Have you ever purchased a mix (muffin, cake, etc.) only to find out that you had to add a ton of ingredients? Or, the ingredients you needed to add were super expensive? That is one of my biggest pet-peeves when it comes to mixes. A couple of years ago I was sent a mix to try. I had to add almost $6 in ingredients. The mix retails for $8. That means it would’ve cost the consumer $14 for the batch of 12 muffins. Not even kidding. Luckily Vivian’s Live Again products are affordable and you only need to add the standard 3 ingredients at most (eggs, milk, oil).
I don’t use mixes for very many recipes, but I do like to use them when I’m in a pinch for time, when its a mix for something I don’t normally make, or I’m trying something new. It helps to keep things simple in the kitchen for me.
If you love muffins and quick breads, you should try my Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread, my Gluten-Free Coconut & Pecan Banana Bread (seriously the best), or my Gluten-Free Blueberry Banana Bread. None of them use mixes, but they are super good and super simple.
