Turmeric Carrot Chia Coconut Muffins

These sunshine muffins have carrots, dry or fresh turmeric, fresh ginger and chia seeds. Coconut rounds up the flavour for a caramelised carrot ginger turmeric profile along with cinnamon and nutmeg.


These muffins are sunshine for the dreary mornings. Golden bites filled with chia, coconut, carrots and turmeric. The fresh sweet carrots when blended release their sweet juices and along with some maple syrup are enough sweetness for the muffin. Turmeric intensifies the colour and adds its benefits in these easy muffins.


I am pro-muffin-consumption of most varieties at any time of the night or day, but there’s something about the kind that manage to tick the boxes for both nutritious and delicious that have me swooning every time. These golden delights are definitely those. What I love about them is just how punchy and flavourful they are. Think zingy carrot and ginger juice but in cake form. I know. During the cooler months when you’re feeling something just a little more comforting, these are a great option for breakfast on-the-go, a post workout snack, or to have handy on a road trip. Oh, and they’re ridiculously easy.



I was a little skeptical about adding turmeric to my breakfast muffins, but the subtle kick of spice works really well with the sweet banana and creamy coconut in this recipe.  These muffins are really dense and hearty, perfect for a last minute breakfast as you’re running out the door.


These carrot muffins can be made with fresh turmeric root or powdered turmeric. Turmeric and fresh ginger root add a burst of flavor. Coconut rounds up the flavour for a caramelised carrot ginger turmeric profile. Turmeric is a peculiar flavour with a slight bitter after profile which at times might need to be acquired. If you are not sure about the flavour, start with just a good pinch of turmeric to try.


With a sprinkling of antioxidant-rich turmeric to reduce inflammation and Vitamin A-rich carrot to give healthy skin its glow, these are a snack worth looking forward to.
