gingerbread millet muffins

gingerbread millet muffins

christmas trees, sugar cookies and gingerbread men - i love this time of year

what better way to kick off the holiday season than with a gingerbread muffin

shh... can you keep a secret?

you won't believe it, but this muffin is healthy
- perfect to balance out the million cookies and treats that i am bound to indulge in everyday leading up to christmas

a muffin with holiday flavors - made with a little birdseed
(millet- bet you didn't know it was for the birds too!)

totally a hippy muffin

millet adds a unique texture - i feel super healthy when i eat these muffins

so i treat myself to two muffins on occasion instead of just one

gingerbread millet muffins

millet can also be used in hot cereals and as a replacement for rice or other similar grains

 millet is also gluten free

ginger, allspice and cinnamon are added to the base

important note: your house will begin to smell like christmas and you will feel the sudden urge to belt out christmas carols in which you only know half the words too so you begin to hum the the parts you can't remember and dance around the room with your orange cat

a mixture of yogurt, molasses and sugar are added to the dry mix

turning your batter into a pretty shade of caramel

batter is then scooped in generous 1/4 cup increments into your muffin pan

you are more than half way to a warm delicious muffin

  1. These look and sounds soo good - especially with their crackly tops :)
    I love the smell and taste of gingerbread but never really thought to turn it into muffins! I'm wondering if other grains like quinoa would work in place of the millet

  8. I love gingerbread and I love how you put in the millet. I've used quinoa in baking and it adds such a nice texture...I will need to try using the millet. Have you tried subing the oil with something like oil or even more soy yogurt?
