Ingredients for the muffins

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil , melted
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for the gingerbread topping


  • Pre-heat oven to 360°F/180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients for the muffins, whisk, then add all the wet ingredients and whisk again until it's a smooth batter.
  • Fill the batter in muffin wrappers or use a lightly oiled muffin pan and put them in the oven for about 20 minutes. (Use the Toothpick Method to make sure the dough is done in the middle.)
  • Let them cool off completely.
  • Whip the coconut cream and add in the rice syrup, cinnamon and ginger powder. Put the cream in a piping bag and pipe them onto the muffins. Crumble up a gingerbread cookie and sprinkle it over the cream. Serve immediately or store the cupcakes in the fridge.
