Wholesome cashew breakfast, lunch or snack muffins with all the good stuff in and the gluten, dairy and sugar left out

Cashew Gluten-free Muffins


Breakfast on the go, or a leisurely breakfast at home should always have something healthy, delicious, and ready! 

These nutty muffins are full of healthy ingredients, and perfect for the dairy-free, gluten-free, and even sugar-free preferences.

Muffins are a way of baking lots of nutrient rich ingredients into a pretty little bundle that is always ready to-go, just like that puppy of yours, and just as content to remain at home to accompany a girlie table setting for one.

Welcome To Muffin Madness!

In my family, I have always been known as the muffin queen, simply because over the years I have created about 25 different muffin recipes, and still creating!

As a single mom of 4, during those insanely disjointed, hectic years of age 6 to 16, with school, hobbies, work and hormones, I needed a friend!

 Muffins became my antidote to madness. My friend. How? I needed a quick, healthy and affordable breakfast, a to-go snack and I needed the kids to be able to help make them. 

And so… as I share my beloved muffin recipes with YOU, one by one, each and every Friday for your weekend treats, or a batch to carry you through the busy week ahead, I hope you will let me know which ones have been your favorite! Yep! 52 Fridays!!

Wholesome Muffins

We all know there’s lots of muffin recipes floating around loaded with lots of ‘unwholesome’ ingredients, but dang they taste good, naughty good!

I made a dare, to myself, to come up with a ‘wholesome’ muffin recipe that tasted as good as the naughty muffins but would shine as the winner, because they were free… guilt free, gluten free, sugar free and dairy free. 

Ground cashews, whole grain oats or ancient grain mix, cashew milk, a drizzle of molasses (because it’s loaded with calcium and iron), and a pinch of monk fruit sweetener, accompanied by a few warm spices. 

Protein Rich Cashews

Cashews are actually not a nut, they’re a seed; a rather large seed that hangs at the end of a well known and loved fruit in Brazil called Caju.

Cashew and Cashew Fruit

The cashew seed is rich in protein and fiber but also several minerals perfect for bone health as well as immune boost properties. The cashew and the milk made from cashews are perfect for all the ‘good stuff’ ingredients we want in healthy meals; which is why cashews are the star in my Brazilian Smoothie Bowls!

Good Stuff

Make a batch on a quiet afternoon or evening, and they will keep all week in the fridge or even freeze for another time.

Take a little time each day to sip on a cup of tea and enjoy these wholesome muffins with a favorite magazine or a good book, put the phone down. 

Carve out at least 30-minutes each day just for yourself, gather your thoughts, breathe, sip and munch on wholesome treats. You will be surprised just how rejuvenated you will feel to tackle the rest of the day.
