Ginger Muffins

dairy-free gingerbread muffins

It’s essential to have a few muffin recipes in your repertoire, not only to let you whip up a quick snack in minutes, but also as a fancy, exciting breakfast option. I also find they’re a great option to make when you have unexpected guests as they as they’re the complete package – no need to wait for them to cool and then finish them off, they’re ready to serve almost straight out of the oven.

My girls always opt for chocolate based recipes so I’ve been attempting to steer them towards other flavours, to persuade them that just maybe, chocolate isn’t always best (only maybe that is!).

These ginger muffins are feather-light with a sweet warming ginger aroma – not dark and sticky like traditional gingerbread, more like a lighter fluffier cousin, but nonetheless delicious and tempting. In fact they’re so moreish I ate two in a row…

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.

  1. Your muffins look positively lovely, Lucy. It’s not often I see a vegan muffin that looks light, airy and fluffy. Will put these in my Recipes to Try file, with gratitude.
