Choc chip Gingerbread Muffins

I love any excuse to bake … and Christmas provides SO many opportunities!!!

These delicious little morsels are a cross between my doughnut muffins and my Christmas pancakes.

See below the recipe for a gluten free Coeliac friendly version too.

  • 200g wholemeal flour
  • 80g sugar
  • 1.5 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp No Egg powder OR 1 whole egg
  • 1.5 tsp GF baking powder
  • 65g rice bran oil
  • 240g milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup choc chips (we use dark chocolate dairy free chips)

In a large bowl place the flour, sugar, salt, spices, egg replacer and baking powder. Use a whisk to combine the dry mix. (or Speed 4 for 6 seconds)

In a separate smaller bowl whisk together the oil and milk.

Pour the wet mix into the dry mix and whisk vigorously to combine mix until smooth. (Speed 5, 8 seconds)

Fold through the choc chips (speed 4, 5 seconds)

Place into lined/greased muffin pans and bake in a preheated 180C oven for about 20 minutes.


Mini muffins take 12-15 minutes.


To make these Coeliac friendly replace the spelt flour with 200g of a gluten free flour mix plus 1 tsp of psyllium.

Makes 12 regular or 24 mini muffins.

These freeze and defrost really well.

Enjoy 🙂
