Gluten-Free Gingerbread Muffins

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Muffins

These gingerbread muffins are a new favorite. Gluten free too!

There’s a brand new muffin in town folks.

And I have to tell you, she’s pretty fancy.

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Muffins

We don’t get sparkly adorned muffins around these parts too often. She’s a bit dark, but sweet with a killer crust. I made these bad boys after not being able to eat solid food for 6 days, so perhaps I am a little biased — I thought they were fantastic!

Tearing into the moist, delicious middle of these muffins and being able to taste the sugary sprinkles on top was pretty much the highlight of our week. The aroma of gingerbread filled our home and enticed us to once again enter the kitchen. Sadly, this meant I had to fight off random short people who live with me just to have one or two of my own. They were cramming them in their mouths as fast as they could swipe them!

I didn’t mind though, we’ve all had a horrible stomach bug and I have convinced myself the ginger in these muffins would do us all good, especially while we sipped on our hot tea. What? Ginger settles an upset stomach. Yep, they are basically medicine.

Sweet, medicine-y goodness from our house to yours.

Kids and adults will love these gluten-free gingerbread muffins. Sprinkled sugar on top make them an extra special treat
