Remember the zingy and warm taste of fresh ginger bread cookies at Christmas time. The cardamom and ginger give these vegan gluten free muffins that same taste.
It can be hard finding vegan and gluten free muffins and when you do the cost can be steep. We know your'll enjoy adding this to your breakfast rotation.
- Gluten-Free Flour - for this recipe we used oat and white rice flour but a gluten-free 1:1 flour blend can also work
- Ginger - grounded ginger will work but if you can use fresh ginger you'll be happy for the burst of favor. You can pick ginger up at your local grocery store in the produce section. The roots keeps for several weeks when refrigerated in a plastic bag. Ginger is good for digestion, reducing nausea and inflammation. Fun trivia fact it belongs to the same plant family as turmeric and cardamon
- Crystallized Ginger - You'll also be able to find the crystallized ginger down the candy aisle of stores like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods
- Egg Substitute - We use Bob’s Egg Replacer
- Pecans - optional if you have allergies
Can I Use Canned Sweet Potatoes Or Canned Pumpkins?
Yes, both work well. Just be sure to get unsweetened.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl add chopped crystallized ginger and pecan pieces, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and all the spices, set aside.
In another large bowl make vegan egg mix, add sweet potatoes, olive oil and yogurt. Combine wet ingredients and mix well.
Slowly stir in wet mixture with dry ingredients.
Reserve ¼ cup of ginger pecan mixture and then add remaining to combined mixture.
Grease muffin tin and add mixture.
Sprinkle tops of muffins with reserved ginger pecan mix.
Bake for 25 minutes.
STORAGE & REHEATING
- To Store. Store in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. I recommend putting a paper towel on the bottom of the container to absorb moisture.
- Prepare In Advance. Great to make ahead for a quick weekday breakfast.
