While it’s easy to get caught up in baking holiday-themed squares, bars, cookies and more, it’s also important to keep some healthier snacks on-hand to avoid too many sugar crashes.
Save those treats for the really special occasions, and in the meantime… Satisfy some of those cravings with these Gingerbread Rye Muffins – all that delicious gingerbread flavour in a whole grain muffin!
These muffins are made with whole grain rye flour and oats. Whole grains are digested more slowly than refined grains or sugar, and even help slow the digestion of sugars when you eat them together! Add in 3.5g of fibre per muffin, and these muffins are definitely a treat that will keep your blood sugar steady and keep you fuller, longer!
We added 1/4 cup of molasses for lots of gingerbread spice flavour, but if you like a milder flavour, feel free to reduce to 2 tbsp!
