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. It’s a one bowl muffin recipe so it all comes together with minimal prep and minimal mess.
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!
