GINGERBREAD MUFFINS

Ginger muffinThe smells of gingerbread, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg wafting through your house are definitely a sign that Christmas is coming. And these gorgeous soft muffins have those flavours in spades! Topped with snow white frosting of the Paleo-persuasion and accompanied by a cuppa (that’s tea, my American family)…bring it on.

INGREDIENTS
3 C grated zucchini (1 lrg zucchini)
3 eggs
½ C melted coconut oil
¼ C honey
1/4 C molasses
3 C almond meal
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C coconut
1 tsp. baking soda
Optional 1/4 C chopped pecans

PREPARATION
PREHEAT oven to 175C / 350F

IN LARGE BOWL, MIX zucchini, eggs, honey, molasses and coconut oil.

ADD remaining ingredients and mix well.

FILL normal sized, lined muffin cups 3/4 full using a tablespoon.

BAKE 20 – 30 minutes.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
While still warm, top with a dollup of our DAIRY-FREE VANILLA CREME™. Or, after cooling completely, frost with PALEO WHITE FROSTING (coming soon). Keep covered in fridge for 1 week.

      I get that about the mixup. Best to just only buy baking soda on a Paleo/Primal diet.

      I’m glad you liked the muffs. And cooking them is better than a Christmas potpourri; smell AND taste of the season.

    Not Christmas here, but an icy morning in Wisconsin. Made these for the first time and definitely will not be the last. Awesome (my son says I use this word too often, but they are). I haven’t even gotten to make the dollup of Vanilla Creme and maybe they will be gone before I get there.

      Ha! To be honest, we’ve also eaten a whole batch of the muffins without touching the vanilla cream. It’ll give you more reason to bake more!

      Glad you like them, too.
