Ginger Muffins

It’s been very snowy lately🙃 Yesterday I was walking to class and I only almost fell twice so we’re all good!😂 I have one more exam!!!!! So excited to be done for a little while! (I can make recipes all day now😉)

Today I have a recipe for gingerbread muffins!! I might try a different flour with these and let you know how it goes! But these really did hit the gingerbread spot👌🏼 (and yes I totally use snow as my background!)

¼-½ cup maple syrup
