Happy Monday everyone! Here’s to a new week, new opportunities, fresh starts and NEW RECIPES! I created this recipe last week for Rawcology and let me tell you it’s a winner!  Who doesn’t love muffins I ask you? How about muffins full of freshly grated ginger, turmeric and fresh pear? I won’t keep you any longer.

These muffins truly inspire excitement; the colours, the aromas and the balanced combination of flavours really do make me happy.

My Lemon Turmeric Ginger Pear Muffins might have the longest name but they also have a lasting impression! Make them for friends or family this spring and I assure you nobody will forget them.

Let’s get making these gorgeous muffins shall we?!
