Six freshly baked gingerbread muffins in a muffin tray, sprinkled with granola

6 Plant Points


  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml oat/soy/almond/dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar of choice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed
  • 125ml olive oil
  • 150g oat flour
  • 60g ground almonds
  • 130g Fruit and Nut Muesli (we used Bio&Me, which is prebiotic)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 3 heaped tbsp gingerbread spice mix (below)

Gingerbread Spice mix

  • 3 tbsp ground ginger
  • 3 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 tsp ground clove
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg
  • Any leftover use in lattes, porridge, smoothies, overnight oats


  • 4-6 tbsp extra muesli


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C
  2. Combine all the wet ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside.
  4. Fill your muffin trays with cases, either large or small. If making small you will likely get 12 muffins.
  5. Fold the wet into the dry and gently stir until fully combined.
  6. Divide the mix between the muffin cases, sprinkle with extra muesli and place in the pre heated oven for 20-25 mins, checking at about 20 mins with a skewer. If it comes out clean they are ready, if not give them a few more minutes.
  7. When they are ready remove from the oven and allow to cool in the trays for 5-10 mins before removing. Tuck in and enjoy!
