Ever hear how a hot cup of lemon water and turmeric in the morning is like a cure-all? It's true. Lemon is packed with the ever necessary Vitamin C that we all need during the winter,  it also contains citric acid which helps with digestion and breaking down food. And what about turmeric? Not only does turmeric add a bright color and warm spice to everything you use in it, but it also has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and antioxidant properties. I mean, what more could you ask for? 
Turmeric Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins: 
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil - melted
  • Zest one and a half lemons
  • Juice of one lemon
  1. Mix your wet ingredients and dry ingredients in two separate bowls and then combine until a batter forms. 
  2. If you use a silicone muffin tin, you can just spray it with coconut oil and pour the batter directly into the muffin molds. If you're using a metal muffin tin, I recommend using paper muffin cups. 
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 mins.
  4. Enjoy your Turmeric Lemon Poppy Seed muffins plain, or top them with my "icing" glaze. 
    1. Mix together 4 tbsp SCD-legal yogurt, 2 tsp maple syrup or honey, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and lemon zest.
