Muffin Monday - Chocolate Gingerbread Muffins

Gingerbread two weeks in a row? Yes. We love it and think you will, too. Happy baking!

Chocolate Gingerbread Muffins
inspiration here
makes 12 muffins

1 1/4 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder, sifted
2 t. ginger
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. allspice
3/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. sea salt
3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 c. organic sugar or Rapadura
1/3 c. coconut oil, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 t. real vanilla extract
3/4 c. buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350F and line muffin pan with paper baking cups. Measure flour, cocoa powder, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, allspice, salt, and chocolate chips into a large bowl; stir with a whisk to blend.

In a medium bowl, mix together egg, melted oil, sugar, vanilla, and buttermilk. Fill muffin cups with batter...

...then bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Your kitchen will smell wonderful!

Check with a toothpick to be sure they're done, then cool in the pan for five minutes...

...before removing to a wire rack.

    I'll bet I could soak the flour in the buttermilk overnight before mixing in the other goodies... your site is just scrumptious. Thank you! :-)

  9. Kirsten, Definitely! Please let us know if you try the soaking. Blessings, ~Lisa
