Have you jumped on the Golden Milk train yet?

If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, let me explain.

Golden Milk is a drink that has gained popularity in the past several years, and is made by whisking turmeric together with milk and other warming flavors, resulting in a drink that can be served hot or cold.

Since studies have shown that turmeric may help fight infections and some cancers, reduce inflammation, and treat digestive problems, Golden Milk has surfaced as an amazingly tasty way to add more anti-inflammatory turmeric into your day.

I try to add a little Golden Milk to my everyday routine, and even came up with a recipe for Golden Milk Concentrate to streamline the process.

I love the benefits of Golden Milk so much that I’ve been playing around with ways to add the goodness to other recipes, particularly ones that my husband and daughter will love.

Enter these Golden Flourless Glow Muffins.

They’re packed with the same powerhouse anti-inflammatory ingredients, all wrapped up in a sweet, tender, addictive little package.

These are also free of refined sugar and flour, with a hint of sweetness from maple syrup and with oat or almond flour standing in for refined flours.

If you’ve never used turmeric, keep in mind that it stains, so wipe any spills quickly.

And one more thing: don’t skip the black pepper! It helps to activate the turmeric.

I hope you’ll make these soon. If you do, be sure to share it on Instagram and tag me at @realfoodwholelife so I can see!

    These are amazing! I subbed the eggs (allergy) for some Ener-G Egg replacer and some extra applesauce and the texture is perfect. Also, the photography on this post could not be prettier!

    • Robyn Downs

      Jennie, yay, so glad you enjoyed and thanks for the note on the eggs. I know others will appreciate the tip. So glad you enjoyed!

  • Sarah

    These look amazing! Can’t wait to try. Can you please please post print-friendly versions of your recipes? I have a hard time getting them to print easily.

    • Robyn Downs

      Hi Sarah, we do the best we can with adding the printable, which we actually have to create by hand. My site doesn’t have a native print option, so this is what we’ve come up with. You should be able to download the PDF and print it. . .

  • Danielle

    These are so good! Great flavor. I was skeptical about the amount of turmeric (and pepper?!) but these turned out great!

  • Cassie Louie

    hello, have you ever tried this using fresh turmeric? i have a ton on hand and still want to use it in combination with the powder but am curious what i would need to do to offset the fresh turmeric? or if i need to do anything at all? looking forward to making these!

    • Robyn Downs

      Hi Cassie, I haven’t tried this one with fresh, but typically the rule of thumb for dried to fresh is 1 teaspoon dried equals 3 teaspoons fresh. You should just be able to add it to the batter like you would dried. Let us know how it goes!

  • Alissa

    Ah-mazing! Super, tasty. I’m all about chocolate chips but I loved the flavor of the muffin so much I think I’ll leave them out next time! Thanks Robyn!

    • Robyn Downs

      Alissa, yay, so happy you enjoyed these! And I’m with you, I love a good chocolate chip, but don’t think they are required in this one!

    WOW these might be the best muffins I’ve ever made, and I even left out the chocolate! I had some pumpkin puree to use up so I used that instead of applesauce. For the maple syrup I subbed half of it with molasses since it has a lower sugar content. Finally I added a bit of almond milk to make the batter more moist. WOW they are really so fluffy and perfect!!

    • Robyn Downs

      Jessica, yay, so happy to hear these are a hit! And love the idea of using pumpkin in place of apple sauce. I’ll give that a try next time I make these. Cheers, Robyn

    Robyn – I just made these and when they came out I was looking at them and thought that they look nothing like yours. Well good to know you can leave out the applesauce (which was a mistake) and it still works. However, they won’t look pretty and are crumbly. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe. Now I’m excited to try with the applesauce.

    • Robyn Downs

      Michelle, I’m so glad they still came out even with the missing apple sauce! It does add a good amount of moisture and helps the muffin hold together. Cheers!
