Superfood Muffins

Superfood Muffins

The other morning, I received an unexpected parcel.  Everybody loves getting post (when it isn’t bills of course), and unexpected post is surely the most glorious of all.  Inside was a brown paper bag with “I’ve bought you a bag of grubs…” written on it.  I squeezed the bag gently and could make out around a dozen witchetty grub size shapes.  Needless to say, I was intrigued.

On unfolding the bag to see inside, the inner flap revealed more writing: “Only joking, it’s turmeric!”  I must admit I was a little relieved.  The thoughtful gift came with a recipe recommendation: Green Kitchen Stories’ Turmeric Breakfast Muffins.  Here’s my attempt…

How it was to make: Superfood Muffins

  • I have decided that I LOVE making muffins.  They are really easy – just mix a few things together and Bob’s your uncle!  Versions like this, which use olive oil instead of butter, are even easier.
  • I used my Nutribullet to grind the walnuts and oats into flour, but I think I whizzed it up for a little too long so it went quite claggy.
  • I managed to stain the grater, board, sponge, sink, my hands and my boyfriend’s trousers bright yellow with the turmeric.  Whoopsy!

Yes, they really were that good!

How it came out: 

  • Impressively, they looked just like the were supposed to.  Very happy and wholesome!
  • I gave these to friends on my birthday and they got excellent reviews.  They’re not overly sweet, but taste very healthy – like they’re doing you good.  Which I think they are with all those great ingredients.
  • My claggy nut/oat flour (see above) actually turned out to produce little pockets of something that was almost like nut butter.  Seeing as I LOVE peanut butter, that suited me down to the ground.

Personal Progress: 

  • Baking lessons learnt: 
    • Turmeric stains stuff.  Really easily.
  • Physical progress:
    • No issues with this whatsoever – hooray!

This bake, I have been mostly listening to:

Another gorgeous track from the wonderful James.  Thanks again for supporting the blog, James – hope you like the look of these muffins!  You can see another James Ollier track on this bake video: (also involving turmeric!) Orange & Turmeric Polenta Cake.
