Can you believe Christmas is about a week away? Our house is decorated and the boys have made their wish lists. I decided to make some yummy healthy treats and my boys love muffins! I wasn’t sure if they would go for gingerbread muffins but they love them!
This muffin batter is more like dough when you divide it out into your muffin papers. Thick and sticky from the molasses. They also bake up nice and dense. I love that they have hints of cinnamon, ginger, and molasses with just a touch of chocolate. They are not overly sweet but serve to feed a craving for a Christmas treat.
If you don’t have pumpkin spice just substitute a teaspoon of cinnamon and a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I used pumpkin spice because I had it on hand and was easier than measuring out more spices.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
