The gingerbread recipes keep coming! Not long ago, I shared my recipe for vegan gluten free gingerbread loaf, and today, I bring you gingerbread chocolate chip muffins.
Both recipes are similar, but in this case, I used my vegan gluten free pumpkin spice muffins recipe as my guide to come up with this delicious and festive holiday recipe.
I didn’t grow up familiar with “North American holiday flavours” at home. My mom didn’t know about the types of things that are popular here in Canada at this time of year, so she stuck to what she knew and grew up with herself in the Caribbean (and what she knew was pretty amazing, so I never felt like I was missing out!).
I vividly remember trying shortbread for the first time in grade 9. Our class did a secret Santa gift exchange and someone in the group had given someone a tin of homemade shortbread cookies. I was offered one, devoured it, and was blown away.
Now, in my home during the holidays, I include a mix of some of the traditional recipes I grew up with and the new things that were introduced to me throughout the years.
Yes, my kitchen is full to the brim with amazing foods and treats during the holidays!
I don’t remember the first time I tried gingerbread, all I know is that today, I love it and it’s always a Christmas-time must-have.
The combo of gingerbread and chocolate work so well together, which is why these perfectly-spiced gingerbread chocolate chip muffins include chocolate chips. Because, why not?
The chocolate adds a great flavour that complements the gingerbread spices. So good.
Topping each muffin off with a sprinkle of turbinado sugar before they bake is optional but it does add a nice little crunch and a festive sparkle!
