The base of these muffins is raw cashews and oats – there is no flour of any kind (if you want to get technical, the oats whirl and disintegrate into “oat flour”) which I LOVE. There is also no oil or butter – making these muffins pretty darn healthy!

The taste is of warm cinnamony gingerbread – you’d never know there were cashews holding all of the ingredients together.

AND, to use the dreaded word, these muffins are MOIST. The cashews and sticky molasses really keep these muffins soft and moist – straight out of the oven and for days later.

If your muffins will last that long.

Because mine sure didn’t! I am seriously in love with these No-Bowl Gingerbread Blender Muffins.

Less than one week until Christmas! Today we got another dusting of SNOW (so rare for us here in Vancouver), so we put on our snow gear, found a steep hill, and took A tobogganing! And then built a snowman!

Such wintery fun! I love that we’ve been able to experience a little bit of a snowy December, and then get to jet off to sunny Mexico for Christmas. The best of both worlds.

But I’ll take a margarita over a snowman any day 😉

Happy Gingerbread Muffin making!

      I agree! I especially love that this recipe uses ground up oats instead of a GF flour blend.

    YOU HAVE BRIDGED THE GAP BETWEEN GF/VEGAN AND EASY IN SUCH A GREAT WAY. I EVEN MADE THIS with INSTANT GF OATS (WITHOUT MUCH WHIRLING) and IT STILL TURNED out DELICIOUS. KEEP IT UP!!
