Gingerbread Muffins

Gingerbread Muffins - Finding Joy in My Kitchen

2 C white whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

2 1/2 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. cloves

1/2 C brown sugar, packed

1/4 C applesauce

1/2 C molasses

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

3/4 C buttermilk

Begin by combining the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  

Then, using a second bowl, mix the brown sugar, applesauce, molasses, egg, vanilla and buttermilk together.  Stir until the ingredients are well mixed.  

Pour the wet and dry ingredients together to form a nice batter.  

Fill muffin tins 2/3 of the way full, and then bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
