Author Notes

Looking for a way to use up my remaining stores of molasses, I decided to tweak my pumpkin muffin recipe for the holidays. The result is a gingerbread muffin that's just spicy enough without being over the top. For vegans, this recipe is easily adaptable. Just swap the egg for egg replacement (I like Bob's Red Mill) and use almond milk instead of regular. —Sabrina Sucato
