Recipe Ingredients for Gingerbread Flax Muffins

1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your preferred non-dairy milk)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1 1/4 whole wheat pastry flour or all purp flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup light molasses
1/8 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Recipe Directions for Gingerbread Flax Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  2. First measure out the milk. Mix the apple cider and ground flax seed directly into the measuring cup and stir vigorously with a fork for about a minute. That helps to bring out the oils of the flax seeds while the vinegar thickens and curdles the milk. Both of those things will help the muffin to rise.

  3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt.

  4. Make a well in the center and add the milk mixture. Add in the oil, applesauce, molasses, sugar and vanilla. Use a wooden spoon to mix ingredients together until everything is just moistened. Don?t overmix, it?s okay if the batter is a little lumpy, muffins like that.

  5. Fill muffin tins most of the way full. Bake for about 22 minutes, until tops are puffed up and firm and a knife or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  6. When cool enough to handle, transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
