Soft Moist Triple Ginger Vegan Gingerbread Muffins with candied, fresh and ground ginger and gingerbread spices. This muffin batter can be made in a blender! Vegan Nut-free Soy-free Recipe Jump to Recipe
These gingerbread muffins are super easy, 10 minutes to mix up and then its wait to bake. Triple ginger in the muffins adds the perfect ginger flavor for the winter months. Fresh, ground and candied ginger. Add nuts or dried fruit for variation. Serve with a Pumpkin Spice Trumeric Latte or Vegan Eggnog.
These muffins age really well and taste best after a few hours. The flavors get stronger and they get more moist as they sit. Store on the counter for a few days. I made these over the holiday weekend and they made for an amazing breakfast the next day. You can also bake the batter into a loaf. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick from the center comes out clean. Cool completely, frost if you like and slice to make gingerbread cake slices.

If you make these muffins, do rate and leave a comment on the post and let me know how they worked out. These muffins are quite fluffy so you can use them as gingerbread cupcakes. The batter also makes excellent pancakes. Add a tbsp or so more non dairy milk to hin it out of needed to make pancakes.
Blend up the batter and pour into lined muffin pan.
Bake, cool completely and serve
Vegan Gingerbread Muffins - Blender Triple Ginger Muffins
- 1 1/4 cup (305 ml) non dairy milk
- 1/4 cup (56 ml) oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp molasses
- 1 inch knob of fresh ginger
- 2/3 cup (133.33 g) sugar use 2 tbsp more for sweeter (preferably a combination of brown sugar and cane sugar)
- 3/4 tsp (0.75 tsp) ground ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- a very good pinch each of ground cloves, allspice and nutmeg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cup (218.75 g) flour
- 1/4 tsp (0.25 tsp) salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 tsp (0.33 tsp) baking soda
- 3 tbsp or more chopped candied ginger
- Line a muffin pan with liners. Preheat the oven to 365 degrees F / 180ºc.
- Blend all the wet ingredients in a blender till the sugar is well combined.
- Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add candied ginger and toss to coat. Add the blended wet ingredients and mix to make a batter. Pour into lined muffin pan.
- Alternatively, add the dry ingredients except candied ginger to the blender. Blend in pulses of 2 to 3 seconds until you get a smooth batter. Sprinkle the candied ginger with 1 tsp flour, then fold into the batter in the blender. Pour the batter into lined muffin pan.
- Sprinkle some granulated sugar or crushed ginger snaps on top of the batter. Bake at 365 degrees F / 180ºc for 18 to 20 minutes, or until toothpick from the center comes out clean.
- Cool in the pan for 10 mins, then on the cooling rack. Store on the counter in a covered container for upto 3 days and refrigerate for longer. These muffins get tastier as they sit as the flavors get stronger. I like them best a day later.
Which flours are best for gluten-free? Oat/Brown Rice? Almond?
Vegan Richa Support
A combination of oat and almond is best. Try this blend!
Sounds delicious. I’m excited to make these. Can I make them but not bake them right away? Put them in the fridge and bake a couple of hours later?
Vegan Richa Support
It is best to bake batter straight away so that the muffins get the right rise and fluffiness. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Second time I have made these- just so fabulous thank you!
Vegan Richa Support
wow – 2nd times a charm – Fabulous !!
These are so amazing! I’ve made them so many times. My whole family love them and they’re all gone within hours! I normally don’t comment, but these were too nice not to.
Hi I dbt have molasses and maple syrup . I have agave syrup . How do I substitute ? Thank you 🙏
Vegan Richa Support
use all agave and you will need a few tbsp more flour
Can I use maple syrup instead of the sugar?
you can. you will need a few tbsp more flour
I’m embarrassed to say how many times we’ve made these with the intention of freezing half of them, but the triple ginger muffin munchers 😋 barely wait till they cool before eagerly devouring them. Freezing the empty cooling rack is about as close as I’ll get.
Absolutely delicious, perfect muffins – loved the ginger flavour.
I ate one whilst it was still quite hot and thought to myself that these would be great served hot with ice cream for an unusual pudding 😋
These look amazing! Can I bake them without the liners? Never have luck peeling the liners off of muffins..Love the use of candied ginger too!
if its a good pan, then grease well and it should work. if the liners stick too much, just spray oil on the liners before adding batter. old liners or not the right paper tend to stick
Delicious. I used 3/4c oat flour+1c white flour. Batter seemed a little runny, so added 1/4 c ground flax. Will make this one again!
These were fantastic! I’ll be making them again. I didn’t have candied ginger so I substituted 3 tbsp of fresh grated ginger and added that to the wet portion and blended. Thanks for posting and sharing.
Is it possible to avoid molasses?
Sure, just use more non dairy milk
I used a little Einkhorn flour, and the rest Spelt. They are fluffy and moist, and the flavor/spice is incredible! I love your recipes!
These are excellent. Great flavor and still wonderful after a couple of days. A definitely keeper.
Made these this morning – super yummy! I diced up some Chimes brand orange ginger chews in place of the crystallized ginger which added a little hint of orange. It made me think throwing in a little orange zest might be tasty too. We made 9 muffins and used the rest of the batter to make some pancakes!
Richa – I bought your cookbook as a Christmas present to myself and am loving it. The recipes I’ve made so far are great, and my favorite has been the palak tofu. Happy new year!
awesome idea to make pancakes!
I am so happy to hear that you are enjoying the book!
I made these yesterday as a loaf and we had it for breakfast this morning. Very light and nice! Next time I will make it even spicier- more crystallized ginger, fresher spices. I don’t want to admit how old the jar of Allspice was but I assure you the remainder is in the compost bucket!
😀 . AWesome!
Saw these on instgram and cant wait to try. Thank you
Christine @ Run Plant Based
These look great, can’t wait to try for a family gathering. Thanks!
Cant wait to try these (print out right now)! I love your recipes…..they are simple to make yet amazing! Just ordered your cookbook too. (btw, it says “daily” milk, rather than dairy in the ingredient list. Keep the wonderful recipes coming!!!! Thank you for all you do!
What a wonderful yet easy recipe. I just saved it 🙂
Ooh these look lovely. I just went vegan last month (am loving it so far!) and have been looking for muffin and bread recipes. This looks delicious. Must try. Thanks 🙂
