Golden Milk

  • 1.5 cups coconut milk (from a carton is fine)
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil


  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and grease 8×8 baking dish (or similar size) with oil (or line with parchment paper).
  2. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat whisk together coconut milk, spices and coconut oil. Whisk continuously for 3-4 minutes, until milk is warm; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Gently stir in golden milk until combined.
  4. Add in rolled oats, flaked coconut, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined and transfer to greased baking dish.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or, until top is golden and middle is set. You can serve immediately bowl style, or wait about 20 minutes to serve as squares.
  6. Serve with your favorite toppings; add some berries, some yogurt, a little extra maple syrup or honey. Enjoy!


If you’d like to omit the coconut flakes, replace with 1/4 additional rolled oats.

Because this recipe calls for coconut oil, make sure your eggs are room temperature, or set them in a bowl of warm water for 15 minutes before beginning the recipe. You can also replace the coconut milk with avocado oil if you’d like.

To make vegan, use 2 flaxseed eggs and use 1.5 teaspoons baking powder.
