For a healthy muffin recipe, these gingerbread bites of deliciousness are so light and fluffy that you’re not sure really … could they be healthy … and the answer is absolutely!
They benefit from the addition of some warm, fragrant spices and treacle and can be made in about half an hour. Perfect for breakfast or a treat with a cuppa. The smell in the house while these are baking will bring everyone to the kitchen.
I’ve written both the regular and gluten free options below so everyone can enjoy these delicious muffins. To make these muffins Dairy Free, sub the greek yoghurt with a soy or almond plant based yoghurt. Ticking all the boxes right there!
A very simple and quick recipe which can be made in about 5 minutes. I know I say that about lots of recipes, but I really mean it this time!
As there’s no butter (ie: fat) in this recipe, they are best eaten on the day or next day. You can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds after that if you want.
There are lots of things that help make these muffins a perfect choice for breakfast or to fill that “hungry” gap we all get throughout the day.
Firstly it uses oats instead of flour which makes them a healthier option as oats are complex carbohydrates and have a slow release of energy.
You can turn them into gluten free muffins by substituting the oats and baking powder.
They are sweetened with honey instead of processed sugar or an artificial sweetener and this type of non processed sugar again releases energy slower and if you use local honey it can help with allergy problems.
There’s no butter or oil in these muffins and I replaced the milk with almond milk so they are dairy free.
So what’s stopping you!!
