I followed this recipe exactly but unfortunately the muffins didn't turn out well. After 20 minutes they weren't cooked at all, in fact they were wobbly still! I cooked them for 45 min in the end. They still sunk right down after a minute out of the oven and the texture was gooey. They did not come away from the paper cases easily. Should the oven have been at 180 FAN? I also looked into chia eggs and it seems that these ones use more water than most. 2 stars since the flavour is still nice and I would try again, making alterations. Any help appreciated so mine can look like the muffins in the photo!

Hi emmaberrocal, Thank you for trying the recipe out and leaving a comment! I didn't thing anyone would and I mut say that I only made this recipe once and it turned out well... The chia egg used here had a thick, jelly-like consistency and the oven wasn't on fan. Maybe you should increase the flour amount since my dough was quite dry (almost like a cookie dough). Hope you'll get them nice and fluffy as they are supposed to be!
