Happy Holidays + Blood Orange Poppy Seed Muffins

With the holidays approaching, we’re thinking of ways to be present. It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of the season, but this year, we’re making a conscious effort to be in the moment.

While you’re living in the moment, here is a yummy recipe for Christmas breakfast!

Blood Orange Poppy Seed Muffins with a Blood Orange Glaze (makes ~12 small muffins or 6 large muffins)

  •  1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cashew meal
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp juice from blood orange (~1 blood orange)
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 heaping tsp of zest from blood orange (~1 blood orange)

Blood Orange Glaze

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp blood orange juice
  • 1 heaping tsp of blood orange zest

Preheat oven to 350*F and grease muffin pan. Add dry ingredients together in one bowl (1 cup flour, 1 cup cashew meal, 1.5 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt.  In a separate bowl,  combine almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, coconut oil and blood orange juice until incorporated. Next, add wet ingredients to dry a little at a time (~3 rounds). Finally, mix in poppy seeds and blood orange zest. Spoon into muffin pan and bake for ~15-20 minutes.

To make the glaze, simple whip all the ingredients together (powdered sugar, blood orange juice and blood orange zest).

Let the muffins cool completely before adding the glaze and enjoy!

We’ll be taking a break to spend time with family and friends, but will be back next Tuesday with a special mantra.

Wishing you a healthy, happy holiday season filled with endless joy and love! ☃️❤️️
