Turnip, Blueberry, Banana Muffins

My wife found the recipe in Shape Magazine, which always has many great recipes. I added the banana. Delicious!


  • 1 medium turnip
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange zest
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 bananas diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Line or grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  2. Grate the turnip and drain any water.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla, and orange zest.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and grated turnip to the wet mixture; mix to combine. Gently fold in blueberries.
