Gingerbread Muffins

I mentioned a little while ago that I’ve been on a real muffin kick lately, and it doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of stopping. My latest obsession are these gingerbread muffins!

These muffins are a bit spicy and go so well with a hot cup of coffee! I love how festive they are, too.

These muffins are full of anti inflammatory ingredients like cinnamon and cloves while ginger helps combat any stomach problems. The muffins are quite dense, but are super filling, which makes them a great breakfast for me!
