What’s Winter without a bit of orange spiced treats?
These Orange Spice & Turmeric Muffins are such a special treat, and I am so excited to be sharing the recipe with you today! They are packed with flavour and the perfect alternative to coffee-shop treats since they are made with whole ingredients like coconut milk and orange.
I added a special ingredient
I snuck in some Turmeric Golden Mylk from Botanica, which contains my favourite spice (turmeric), adaptogens (ashwagandha), dates and cardamom to sweeten.
These muffins are:
- packed with anti-inflammatory goodness
- deliciously and naturally sweet
- spiced with healing vanilla and cardamom
- the perfect muffin to have with a hot mug of golden mylk
Orange Spice & Turmeric Muffins
- 2 cups of all-purpose gluten-free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill 1-For-1 Baking Flour) or oat flour – can sub 1/2 cup of flour for leftover almond pulp
- 3 heaping tbsp. Botanica Turmeric Golden Mylk mix, or a mix of 1 tsp. ground turmeric, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. aluminium-free baking powder
- 1 “flax egg” or 1 pasture-raised egg (if not vegan)
- 3/4 cup of coconut sugar
- 1 cup of coconut milk (can sub for almond)
- 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
- 1 orange, 1/2 for juice, 1/2 peeled and chopped
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Pinch of cardamom
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 350F
- To make the flax egg, mix 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds with 4 tbsp of water and set aside for 15 minutes.
- In a bowl, mix together the flour, Botanica Golden Mylk mix, baking powder, coconut sugar, cardamom and salt.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the flax egg, coconut milk, coconut oil, the juice of 1/2 of the orange, the other 1/2 of the orange (peeled and chopped into small pieces) and vanilla extract.
- Combine the two mixtures until all lumps are removed
- Add a bit of coconut oil to 10 small muffin tins and pour in the batter about 3/4 way.
- Bake for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes then enjoy warm.
- Since these muffins are made with gluten-free flour, they tend to harden up if left out for too long. I recommend reheating them for 10 seconds for a soft and pillowy-like texture.
