You can literally taste Christmas with every bite of these muffins. In my opinion, the combination of seasonings worked so well together. You can definitely taste the ginger, but it also isn’t too strong. Just imagine your favorite gingerbread cookie with chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Muffins

I used the base from one of my all-time favorite healthy muffins, my Whole Spelt Flour Pumpkin Muffin and added some molasses and played around with some different spices to create the perfect muffin to truly reflect the taste of the holidays.

  • 1.5 cups whole grain spelt flour*
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1.5 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/4 cup honey, raw and local, if possible
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, I used one 4 oz individual cup.
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, I use Enjoy Life brand.


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a muffin baking sheet with 9 muffin tins.
  • Combine all dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a large bowl.
  • Combine all wet ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir in chocolate chips.
  • Scoop large spoonfuls of batter into 9 muffin tins. Bake for 20 mins at 350 F.


*any flour will probably work, but may give the muffins a different texture (spelt four is my favorite healthy flour to use)
The flavor and texture of these muffins was so wonderful, I ate them plain. However, these would be great topped with honey or nutbutter.
