Turmeric Carrot Honey Muffins with Brazil Nuts

These anti-inflammatory turmeric spelt muffins with carrots are really tasty, healthy and have no refined sugar. They're made with Brazilian nuts, coconut oil, honey and wonderful spices like turmeric and ginger. The reason those muffins are reddish is because the turmeric interacts with the alkaline baking soda to naturally turn these muffins red.

  • 200 g Refined spelt flour
  • 50 g Whole spelt flour
  • 50 g Brazil nuts, ground into meal
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp Black salt or sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp Turmeric powder
  • A large pinch of black pepper powder
  • 50 g Coconut sugar
  • 200 g Grated carrots (about 2 cups)
  • 100 g Honey, creamy or clear
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 240 ml Buttermilk
  • 85 ml Coconut oil, melted
  • 18 Brazil nuts
  1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Grease a 6-hole jumbo muffin pan with coconut oil or line a 12-hole, standard-size muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Sift flours, ground Brazil nuts, baking soda, baking powder, black salt, ginger and turmeric powder into a bowl. Stir in coconut sugar and grated carrot.
  3. Whisk honey, eggs, buttermilk and melted coconut oil together in a jug. Add honey mixture to flour. Mix until just combined. Do not over-mix or the muffins won't be tender.
  4. Divide the batter among the muffin holes. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of muffin comes out clean. Brush the top with a bit of honey while still warm if you desired. Cool in pan for 2 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Nancy Chan 19/6/19 11:06

Looks great and I would love to taste it with coffee or tea.

Mae Travels 19/6/19 13:20

Those look delicious and beautiful from the red color -- but the dose of curcumin (the effective drug from turmeric) in that much of the spice is far less than needed to be anti-inflammatory.

I have been using this cinnamon spice with turmeric in it a lot lately - and I have been mixing it with erythritol. I am not a turmeric on its own kinda girl, but I know it's super healthy so I am glad I can incorporate it at least some how! Now if I could eat your muffins... I WOULD BE ABLE TO EASILY get it in. And I just re read that sentence - LOL!!!

Easyfoodsmith 24/6/19 08:04

The color of these muffins is so beautiful ❤️
Just curious, but doesn't the turmeric make these taste a little bitter? Or do other ingredients play it down?

Angie's Recipes 24/6/19 10:40

@Easyfoodsmith I didn't taste any bitterness at all...maybe honey plays an important roll here.

Sakuranko 24/6/19 13:57
