Gluten-free muffins made with roasted sweet potato and chocolate chunks. Topped with a maple-infused quinoa crumble topping.
I’ve been rocking a dairy-free life since the early 90′s thanks to my lactose intolerant Mom who raised us on Rice Dream ice cream bars, hemp milk and cashew yogurt. Bless her heart.
From an early age, I learned that kale, broccoli, sesame and almonds would help me grow tall and strong. And that calcium wasn’t the only nutrient required for bone formation. I was destined to make holistic nutrition my life.
Magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K, manganese, potassium, boron… all are needed to build (and maintain) healthy bones.
For days where I’d rather eat a muffin than sip on a green shake (because ya, I’m human, too!), there’s Osteo CALM.
Osteo CALM is a gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, bone health supplement that’s packed with all of the essential bone health nutrients.
When I’m making a batch of muffins, I replace the yogurt or milk with Osteo CALM and all is right in my world. I get a boost of bone building power that’s dairy-free, whole food based, non-GMO… and? I get to eat muffins.
To make this recipe as accessible to everyone as possible, it’s dairy-free, gluten-free and oil-free. I bet the egg could also be removed and replaced with a flax egg (1 tablespoon freshly ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons of warm water, left to sit for 5 minutes)
Note: The “all purpose flour” I used was this gluten-free mix.
Also – the Osteo CALM can be replaced with non-dairy milk of your choice ;)
Really simple to prepare, I assure you.
And… quinoa crumble? Awesome!
If you’re dairy-free, what steps do you take to meet your nutrient requirements?
Are you concerned with your calcium intake?
