Although it doesn’t have the same hysteria as #pumpkinspiceeverything don’t dismiss the other holiday favorite, gingerbread. In my humble, yet experienced foodie opinion, one is just as tasty as the other. While pumpkin spice has a more subtle flavor, the spiciness in gingerbread is a bit more pronounced. Cutting that almost sweet and savory flavor with a light vanilla frosting creates the perfect balance of sugar n spice and everything nice!
I decided to make cupcakes for the convenience of single serving size treats like gingerbread man cookies, combined with the soft, moist texture of a gingerbread loaf. Of course, like all my other recipes there’s protein in everything because #gainz The cupcakes are gluten-free and low-fat. I didn’t want to cut all the carbs, but there’s less than half the sugar and the frosting is an easy vegan hack! Please tag me @lafemmevegan if you try them.
