It’s time to get your booty in the kitchen and start baking #alltheholidaythings. This gingerbread muffin recipe is one of my all-time holiday favorites because it tastes just like a soft gingerbread man cookie but in muffin form!
What I love about these gingerbread muffins is that they are made with whole, healthy ingredients. We used white whole wheat flour, maple syrup, applesauce, coconut oil, and tons of gingerbread spices. We also used a little bit of molasses to get that classic gingerbread man flavor, but not too much!
These would actually be the perfect healthy breakfast muffins because they have 4g of protein, whole grains, and lots of healthy fats. Um, yes, please!
