Oatmeal Cookie Crumble Gingerbread Muffins (Keto & Gluten Free)

Ah! The time of the year is here! All the holiday baking makes me super excited and happy, anyone else feels the same way? I think there's no other best way to set the holiday spirit like some delicious homemade baked goods.


In this occasion I'm sharing with you this delicious Gingerbread Muffin recipe but with a twist of Oatmeal Cookies. The trick here is that I crumbled some paleo oatmeal cookies from Soozy's and used them for the dough mix and the crumble topping.


A major explosion of flavors here! Tastebuds will be so happy and pleased... promise.


If you are feeling for the mood of that holiday spirit you should really give these bad boys a try. The ginger, chocolate and raisins from the oatmeal cookie come together in the most harmonious way possible.


The ingredients are also super simple so you can be sure that you are sharing your love in the most delicious and nourishing way possible since we are avoiding common inflammatory ingredients such as vegetable oils, sugars, syrups, grains... and for some cases, dairy.



Healthy baking alternatives:



These are just some staples I always have in my pantry that I used for baking and other desserts. They are super easy to use and they add a great flavor and nutrient density to all of your favorite recipes.



Healthy and Nutritious Muffins:


As you can see the ingredients are simple and nutrient dense, this recipe will be proving micro nutrients and proteins thanks to this vegan protein from Organifi, a peaky eater savor since it has a great nutrition profile.



Monk fruit is my go to sweetener for baked goods since it's a 1:1 substitute for cane sugar and it doesn't have a weird bitter aftertaste like others. I use Lakanto because of their quality and because we get a discount by using the code "PURELYHL" on their checkout.



Can I tell you one of my favorite things about baking? Besides being so therapeutic and delicious? The smell, the aroma is gives to my house is just ughh! Perfect, so heart warming and well, who doesn't appreciate the smell of baked goods?


The smell of these are just incredible, the ginger, chocolate and the raisins really do a fantastic job creating a delicious some homey feel.



Also, baking is a way to spread the love and to share some memories with your loved ones so this recipe is super easy to make, great to do with your kids, friends or any other loved ones around the holidays or in a snow day.



Easy Peasy Gingerbread Muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven at 350F.

  2. In a little bowl crumble all the cookies into a fine dust (you can leave some little chunks).

  3. In a deeper bowl add all the dry ingredients with half of the crumbled cookies.

  4. Add the liquids and mix well.

  5. Pour the dough into twelve silicone muffin cups.

  6. Top with the remaining cookie crumbles and bake for 24 minutes.

  7. Let it cool down and enjoy!



Once they are cooled down you can enjoy them with a delicious and frothy latte or milk of your preference, you can top these with some keto maple syrup or even toast them on your air fryer... the ideas are endlessly delicious!



You can also keep them in the freezer for a couple of weeks inside a plastic bag and reheat them once you feel like kicking that sweet tooth. I personally always have something made by myself on the freezer, the duration there depends. With these muffins didn't last long... they were so good!



So, are you ready to spread the holiday cheer or just the cheer with these muffins? Let's preheat those ovens! Also, remember that sharing is caring! Please share this recipe with your loved ones, save, pin or bookmark!


With love,

María
