Quinoa & Turmeric Muffins

HI there!

Does muffin for breakfast sound a little not healthy?

Well, my answer is, “Not at all!” (Especially, when it is a fresh, warm quinoa & turmeric muffin)

Today I am so excited to share with you one of our absolute favorite breakfast idea for cool mornings. A few years I found it on the amazing blog GreenKitchenStories.com, and since then I can not stop making them over and over. I experimented with the original recipe a lot, changed some ingredients and quantities, and now I am proud to say that I found my perfect one. It is time to share it, right?

These muffins are delicious, naturally sweetened and gluten-free. Warming combination of turmeric, cardamom and nutmeg makes them incredibly flavorful and yes, beautifully yellow.

I usually serve them warm with some fresh fruits and a few spoons of plant-based yogurt. Mmm…

Quinoa & Turmeric Muffins
Serves: 18
  • Dry ingredients
  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 1 cup of oat flour
  • ⅔ cup quinoa flour (you can also use buckwheat flour)
  • 2 tbsp starch (I usually use arrowroot)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • a pinch black pepper
  • a pinch nutmeg
  • Wet ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut yogurt (you can use whole milk yogurt as well)
  • 1 tbsp ghee (butter)
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 6 dates
  • 3 large eggs
  • Some wild blueberries (about ¼ cup)
  • ¼ cup rolled oats + 2 tbsp maple syrup (for topping, optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Line a muffin pan with paper cups. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add yogurt, bananas and dates to a blender and process until smooth. Transfer to the bowl with the dry ingredients.
  3. Crack eggs in a separate bowl and beat well, add them to the rest of ingredients and mix it well again.
  4. Divide the batter into the muffin paper cups (about 1 tbsp for each), drop a few of blueberries on top of each muffin and gently push them down a little.
  5. You can add a bit of rolled oat and drizzle of maple syrup on top of each muffin as well.
  6. Bake your muffins for 20 min.
  7. Enjoy them warm?

You can freeze some of them as well.

I wish quinoa & turmeric muffins can make one of your mornings warmer and brighter.
