I don't often write about muffins or even make them at home because, to be honest, I just don't like most muffins! The typical coffee shop fare tends to have big, domed tops and are often too sweet for my taste. I'm drawn to those dense hippie muffins that are packed with a good bit of whole grain flour and interesting flavors and textures — which is exactly the kind of muffin I'm sharing today.
These holiday-ready gingerbread muffins boast really subtle warm spices and just the right amount of dark sweetness. Let's be honest: these provide a really good excuse to eat gingerbread for breakfast (in case you needed one).
