Little did I know when I made these muffins that we'd be enjoying a winter wonderland just 48 hours later.
I concluded it's never too early for gingerbread. Just like Christmas music.
Although I try to wait until after Thanksgiving to send Christmas tunes through our house... that is not the case with gingerbread!
The earlier the better. Right?
Gingerbread Muffins - Finding Joy in My Kitchen
2 C white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1/4 C applesauce
1/2 C molasses
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 C buttermilk
Begin by combining the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Then, using a second bowl, mix the brown sugar, applesauce, molasses, egg, vanilla and buttermilk together. Stir until the ingredients are well mixed.
Pour the wet and dry ingredients together to form a nice batter.
Makes about 12 muffins, or 6 jumbo muffins.
