Raise your and if you like gingerbread! Well, if you like gingerbread flavors, then you will like these muffins. Not for nothing are called gingerbread muffins.
During Christmas, we want to indulge in all kinds of goodies. I have always loved gingerbread for its enticing taste and smell, especially because I associate it with the winter holidays, my grandmother’s house, and childhood memories.
Since I wanted to have a gluten-free recipe, I’ve replaced the regular flour with garbanzo bean flour, also known as chickpea flour. It is a good source of protein, and it makes the muffins fluffy and soft. Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ground ginger are a natural bouquet of flavors that can not be missing from a holiday-specific holiday!
These muffins are without white flour and, of course, without sugar. And they are ready in a very short time, precisely 30 minutes. They are spectacular, both in taste and appearance! Enjoy them without worrying about the extra pounds.
You can wrap them beautifully and become a perfect edible gift for family members, office colleagues, or school colleagues. You can also omit the cream if you prefer. As an alternative, you can bake the composition in the form of a cake and then decorate it with cream cheese.
If you want to delight your family with a unique dessert, I suggest preparing this muffin recipe. They will be very excited!
