It’s no surprise that I love making muffins for my family. They’re perfect for freezing, which makes breakfast much easier on busy mornings. With my oldest starting kindergarten (insert all the crying emojis) Thursday, I plan to have my freezer stocked with all kinds of muffins for us to choose from.
These blueberry muffins have turmeric added in for a somewhat different twist on the classic recipe. Turmeric is an aromatic spice known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It adds a slightly pungent and earthy flavor to these muffins, not to mention the additional health benefits it provides.
These blueberry muffins are gluten-free and dairy-free. The combination of buckwheat, oat and almond flour gives them a hearty base and a moist and tender texture. The little pops of blueberries sprinkled throughout provides a burst of sweetness and a nice contrast to the turmeric.
Blueberry muffins are never a bad idea and by adding in the turmeric we can reap the benefits from this health-promoting and disease-preventing spice into our diets.
