Spiced Gingerbread Vegan Muffins

Spiced Gingerbread Vegan Muffins

Today’s Santa’s babe Christmas inspired recipe of Spiced Gingerbread Vegan Muffins is brought to us by danistrailcooking

Hello my friends! Since it is so cold outside I thought it was time to experiment in my kitchen. I recently tried Santa’s Babe Pepperkake Rooibos Tea and fell in love with it! I figured that I could use it in one of my favourite, fast recipes.

The wonderful flavour of rooibos, cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom make everything taste warm and wintery! Especially in my muffin recipe it tastes really great!

I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did !
