This truly is the most wonderful season! In my book, the days between Halloween and New Year’s Day are the best of the whole year. Starting with pumpkin treats and ending with peppermint and gingerbread! So many delicious flavors to be enjoyed and the warm spices found in my Homemade Gingerbread Spice Blend are some of my favorites.
I’m a huge fan of making my own spice blends. It’s simple to do and I usually have all of the needed ingredients in my spice cabinet. I can customize the flavors to my liking and make as much or as little as I need. Although I always tend to make extra to keep on hand for quick use down the road! Most of all, making your own blends also guarantees that high quality ingredients are used and that no fillers or anti-caking agents are added – yuck!
Today I will show you how to make Homemade Gingerbread Spice Blend. Of course this blend is perfect for making treats like gingerbread cookies, but it will also be great for flavoring a batch of granola, spicing up your herbal coffee or hot chocolate, or adding a festive kick to a smoothie!
If this recipe is too large of a batch, no worries! Instead of using Tablespoons, just use the same ratios with teaspoons. However, once you give this Homemade Gingerbread Spice Blend a smell, you’ll want to make a big jar!
