This Muffin Recipe comes from an old family cookbook. It may be an old recipe but these Ginger Molasses Muffins are still some of my favorite muffins to make.

The flavor of these ginger molasses muffins reminds me of molasses cookies. Not surprising as this muffin recipe has a generous amount of molasses in it but it doesn’t overwhelm your taste buds. On the other hand, a little ground ginger goes a long way!

This recipe will yield 6 muffins unlike many recipes that make a dozen. Not a big deal if you are a family of 1 or 2 but if you are making these muffins for a larger crowd, I would suggest doubling the ingredients.

I like to use Coconut Oil as much as I can when baking but if you don’t have any on hand you can use the same amount of melted butter.

Coconut Oil does not really have any taste to it so it will not affect the flavor of these delicious muffins.

I often get asked what a good substitute for molasses would be. Not sure if it’s because they don’t have any on hand or simply don’t like the flavor.

You have a few options as far as substitutes go: dark corn syrup, maple syrup, honey or even some dark brown sugar with a little water added to it.

Remember that substituting for one of these ingredients will alter the overall flavor of this recipe.

    Smells yummy. I also added coriander for a bit more of a flavor profile. I doubled the recipe. So good!

  2. Lyn says:

    I don’t have (or usually use) coconut oil. Can I use vegetable oil?

  3. Kevin says:

    These ginger molasses muffins are great. They are moist and even moist on the third day. I made a double batch because of my big family. Great recipe.
