Nothing smells more like Christmas to me than gingerbread. I suppose peppermint candy canes would be a close second and I will be featuring a recipe with candy canes soon, but the unmistakable aroma of gingerbread muffins, or cookies, baking in the oven is an all time favorite. I honestly thought I had posted this recipe last year since it is such a staple in my home. Better late than never!
As always, I use all organic whole wheat flour to add fiber and nutrients, but the real all stars in this recipe are all the spices. Cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar and reduce inflammation, ginger is a natural pain killer and can ease stomach upset, nutmeg is good for digestion and detoxification of the body and cloves are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and nutrient dense. Combine those benefits with a tasty filling snack and you have a perfect holiday treat!
1/2 tsp. salt
