After discovering last month that I'm not the only ginger fan in the house I immediately went looking for a recipe using it to make for this month's Muffin Monday. I found Lisa V's Cranberry Gingerbread Muffins on the Taste of Home site.
I did make two changes to her recipe. First, I substituted Greek yogurt for the fat free because it's what I always have on hand. I also used dried cranberries instead of fresh. Usually I would also sprinkle the tops with some raw sugar, but I was debating a glaze so I didn't.
The key to muffins is really not to over mix them. I like to use an ice cream scoop to portion out the dough into the cups. Before baking I popped a few extra dried cranberries on because I like people to know what's in them.
These smell amazing while they're baking and they taste even better. They didn't need the sugar or a glaze, they are perfect as is.
