Blueberry, Turmeric, & Granola Muffins

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Blueberry and turmeric… Doesn’t sound tasty, does it?

Trust me when I say that these muffins were perfectly sweet and spiced. With hints of cinnamon, crumbles of homemade granola, and a few chocolate chunks, your tastebuds will be well satisfied. 😉

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Bobs Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 large mashed bananas
  • 1/4 cup honey or sugar free maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Siggis nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Califia Farms unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup homemade granola (Recipe coming soon!)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, turmeric, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, add bananas, honey/syrup, vanilla extract, extra virgin coconut oil, egg, almond milk and yogurt. Using an electric mixer, blend on high for 1 minute until smooth. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Divide batter evenly into muffin tin and top with blueberries, chocolate chunks, and homemade granola, pressing the toppings slightly into the batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean. Cool muffins for 5 minutes then remove and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Pro tip: Muffins are best served warm and even better the next day topped with vanilla ice cream. Too far? I think not.
