Apple Ginger Muffins (77 Calories and Gluten Free)
As if I didn’t get enough ginger from my Homemade Ginger Brew…
I had to set out to make a ginger muffin. Naturally muffins go with the brew And at only 77 Calories per muffin, this is a recipe you can feel great about!
Apple Ginger Muffins
1.5 Cups Old Fashioned Oats (Gluten Free)
2 small to medium Apples (I used Gala)
2 inches fresh grated Ginger
1/4 c. Blackstrap Molasses
1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tbsp Ground Ginger
1 Cup Stevia (Mine measures cup for cup with sugar)
1 Tbsp Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a grater, grate (with skin on) the apples and the ginger into a large mixing bowl. I know I said 2 inches of ginger, but I really LOVE ginger, so feel free to add more like I did
Next blend or process your oats into oat flour. You don’t need it to be completely a fine powder, as you can see from the photos below, I still had plenty of whole oats. Add into the grated ginger and apple. Add in remaining ingredients and mix well.
Divide evenly among 12 cupcake liners or a silicone mold like mine.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool completely then store in an airtight container. (I store mine in the fridge)
