Cherry Gingerbread Muffins

These Cherry Gingerbread Muffins are easy, delicious and super wholesome. I often make a batch at the weekend and give them to the kids when they look for sweet treats during the week. These muffins are quite healthy because they contain whole-wheat flour and they’re very easy to make. You can whip up and cook a batch in under an hour.

Despite the long list of ingredients, these muffins are quite easy to make. I start by combining the dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls. I mix these together to create the muffin batter. Just before cooking, I stir through the cherries, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. Then bake for 22 minutes and wait for them to cool!

To make Cherry Gingerbread Muffins, you will need the following ingredients:
