Soft, fluffy, perfectly sweet ginger muffins for our moms! A vegan dessert all our incredible moms have to taste specially if they like soft ginger combinations. Every time I think on preparing desserts I end up having multiple chocolate recipes, but I know I have to pinch myself to get out of the confort zone and try something that does not involve chocolate once in a while.
And so I did, all because of our mothers!
Many people think we need chef abilities to cook, but let me tell you 4 years ago I only knew how to put together a salad, and until today I have no idea how to make a good looking rice. So if you are a frequent visitor but still remain away from our recipes, we invite you to give them a try. Choose one, go to the store and by the ingredients from the ingredients list and we promise you you will have a great time, but the best part, you will have healthy delicious food with you! Trust me, they are NOT difficult. So if you haven’t done so, go ahead this might be the first step and what could be better than have them for mom on her special day?
Ginger – Lemon Muffins (Serves 14)
1/4 cup finely minced ginger
1 cup of organic sugar
1 banana, mashed
2 Tablespoons lemon zest
2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup soy mil (or almond milk)
Juice from 1 lemon
1. Mix 1/2 cup of sugar with the grated ginger and add on to a pan. With low heat let it melt as you stir constantly.
2. In a bowl add the bananas with the coconut oil (melted) and the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar. Mash the banana and mix properly. (Pre heat your oven at this point to 375 F or 190C)
3. In another bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda.
4. Add the soy milk and lemon juice to the banana mix.
5. Add the ginger and melted sugar into this mix as well.
6. Blend in the mix of flour and stir until smooth.
7. Add into muffin cups and spread lemon zest and/or coconut on top. Remember to pour batter 2/3 of the way because they will grow.
8. It took me 40 minutes to cook. Make sure to keep an eye and use the pinching method to check out if it’s completely cooked or not.
