Golden Milk Banana Bread Muffins

breakfast recipes Jan 19, 2020

When do you have the urge to bake? For me, it’s typically at night or when I’m having a crummy day (no pun intended). Lately, I’ve been experiencing some of the the winter blues – likely coming from a little homesickness after being with my family for several weeks over the holidays.

Spending time in the kitchen always lifts my spirits, and since I’ve been on a major Golden Milk kick lately, I decided to whip up these easy and nutritious muffins for this week’s baking sesh. I was going for the best of a cozy golden milk latte meets classic, dense banana bread – what more could you need?

One of this recipe’s secret ingredients that I truly can’t live without is Luna Fixa’s Curcuma Golden Paste. This easy to use paste is the perfect way to whip up a golden milk latte in no time (check out my complete recipe here), but it’s also a great addition to yogurt, smoothies and baked goods. Plus, it’s made by my favorite healthy food truck in Austin, Curcuma. Snag a tube for yourself here!

If you need a little convincing about this whole turmeric-in-your-banana-bread thing, listen up. Turmeric is renowned for its incredible medicinal properties. This spice is filled with anti-inflammatory compounds and antioxidants that boost brain function, minimize joint pain, reduce cancer risk and even fight depression.

If you’re on a turmeric kick (or want to be) and need some other creative ways to reap the benefits of this powerful spice, check out my Turmeric Spiced Nuts, Golden Pumpkin Spice Latte, Golden Milk Oatmeal, Lightened-Up Crockpot Chicken Curry and Curry Chicken Salad.

While optional, another ingredient that I sneaked into these crazy healthy muffins is lucuma powder from one of my favorite brands, Karen Berrios. This superfood is arguably the healthiest sweetener on the planet and comes from drying the nutritionally-potent lucuma fruit native to Peru. It’s loaded with pre- and pro-biotic fiber, vitamin B3 and antioxidants that boost the immune system and promote eye health. Plus, it’s low glycemic and thus doesn’t spike your blood sugar like most sweeteners.

As for the other ingredients, you’ll likely find most (if not all) of them already sitting in your pantry! And be sure to save those ripe bananas you might be temped to pitch, as they’re essential to any good banana bread.

Whether you’re in need of a little mood booster or self care night in, baking is always my solution. And you’ll thank yourself for prepping a batch of these easy, superfood-packed muffins to enjoy all week long  .
