It’s the perfect time of year for warm and comforting oatmeal. However, grains can trigger an inflammatory response in the body. Luckily, I have an amazing recipe for Golden Milk Tigernut Oats that ditches the grains and uses tigernuts, coconut, and turmeric to provide incredible nutrients!

Tigernuts have fiber, magnesium, and potassium. These essential nutrients keep your gut in top form by helping your digestion move smoothly, giving your body lots of energy, and keeping your heart healthy by controlling blood pressure. Tigernuts are definitely a superfood worth adding to your diet!

Another one of my favorite AIP ingredients is coconut. It’s creamy, delicious, versatile, and full of healthy fat. In this Golden Milk Tigernut Oats recipe there’s shredded coconut, coconut milk, and I topped it off with coconut flakes. Yum!

Turmeric gives these “oats” their golden hue thanks to the phytochemical curcumin, which is known for it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Plus, combining curcumin with a fat such as coconut makes it easier for your body to absorb. Enjoy!
