Needless to say, after all the Christmas and holiday commercials flooding my TV, I’ve been craving gingerbread cookies!

I decided to play around and create a gingerbread recipe that wasn’t traditional.

That brings us to the go-to mini muffins!

A light, fluffy, spice filled, bite size gingerbread treat!

My first batch came out a little bland so I tweaked a few things and added more spices.

The sprinkles added a perfect holiday touch and festive pop of color!

2 tbsp egg whites

1/2 tsp vanilla
