Is there really anything more festive than Healthy Gingerbread Muffins?! I don’t think so ! These Healthy Gingerbread Muffins are super easy to make, and so delicious. They’re naturally gluten free + made in the blender which helps to give them their fluffy texture. Perfect with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, or just eaten on their own!
I’m the kind of person who would eat gingerbread flavored things pretty much all year round. It’s one of my favorite things, only second to pumpkin! A while back I partnered up with my friends from Vital Proteins to bring you these Healthy Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blender Muffins. You guys went crazy over them and absolutely loved them, so I figured we’d try to do something similar with gingerbread!
I used oats as the base, tons of warm winter-y spices + my favorite Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides for a protein/nutrient boost. You guys definitely know this by now, but I can’t get enough of their collagen. I put it in my coffee every morning and in ALL the baked goods (Like this Healthy Tropical Baked Oatmeal, these Carrot Ginger Oatmeal Muffins, or these Snickerdoodle Pancakes). Since starting taking the collagen about a year ago, I see a significant difference in my hair, skin and nails.
My nails are so strong (despite getting gel manicures, which I know isn’t great for you), my hair is strong, shiny, and healthy and my eczema prone skin is less red and irritated. People think I’m crazy for living by this stuff- but I don’t care! In my book.. their collagen peptides are seriously magic!
During the holidays it can be easy to totally overload on tons of sweets + treats. These muffins feel decadent and like you’re enjoying something guilty- without being a total sugar + carb bomb. They’re great for freezing and putting in the toaster oven for a quick grab + go breakfast in the morning, or just for whipping up on a cozy, snowy weekend morning.
If you reeeeally want to amp up the holiday flavor.. I highly suggest spreading this Healthy Gingerbread Cashew Butter on top of the muffins. It’s pretty much guaranteed holiday cheer on a plate.. especially if you pair it with a cup of coffee mixed with Vital Proteins new Gingerbread Creamer… DREAMY!
