“This is a recipe I invented when I was craving gingerbread - and it came out great! My whole family enjoyed them and they make a good breakfast, teatime, or evening snack. The muffins are sweet and delicious.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. TO MAKE APPLE BOTTOMS: Peel, core, and slice apples into 1-inch chunks.
  3. Mix apple chunks, tablespoon melted margarine, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar in a bowl until apples are lightly coated.
  4. Place a spoonful of apple mixture in the bottoms of a lightly greased muffin pan and set aside.
  5. TO MAKE GINGERBREAD BATTER: Combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and spices.
  6. Mix egg replacer, melted margarine, molasses, and hot water in a separate bowl, then add this mixture to the dry mixture.
  7. Stir just until thoroughly combined and spoon batter over apples.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes. I recommend eating these with a fork as the apples don't always stay together, but I promise they're delicious!
