The holidays are upon us and that means it’s time for fun gatherings and tons of delicious food! Today’s recipe for Gingerbread Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting is the perfect treat to take along to any party.
With so many delicious desserts this time of year, I need a plan to keep myself from overindulging. I try to bring a real food treat to any get together so that I have a healthier option, but don’t have to skip out on a sweet treat! That’s why these Gingerbread Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting are the perfect choice. They are full of spicy gingerbread flavor with the perfect amount of sweetness. Topped with a creamy vanilla bean frosting, they will please any guest, including those who don’t worry about maintaining a real food lifestyle!
This recipe makes use of my Gingerbread Spice Blend. Just like with my Chai Spice Blend, I keep a small jar in my pantry for recipes like this one or to spice up other baked goods like quick breads and muffins, add some zing to my herbal coffee, change up my hot chocolate, or flavor a smoothie! And since we are talking about the holidays, these spice blends make great homemade gifts too!! If you would prefer to not make extra spice blend, the recipe includes the specific spices needed just for these cupcakes.
A quick note on my favorite products used for Gingerbread Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting
This recipe is made with blanched almond flour. The only almond flour I ever use is this one. It’s the perfect texture for baking and gives me great results every time! Parchment muffin tin liners are very important to this recipe. If you don’t want to have crumbly muffins that stick to the papers, make sure to use them.
