Gingerbread houses are a fun craft project to do during the winter months, however the edible architectural feat often goes uneaten making these gingerbread cupcakes a much more enjoyable treat with a softer texture. The cupcakes incorporate all the deliciously robust and spiced flavor found inside gingerbread and incorporates into the light, fluffy and airy batter of a cake with a rich cream cheese frosting.
While these cupcakes can be seen as a dessert item, they are actually made from a slew of healthy ingredients and food products making them wholesome enough to even enjoy for breakfast. The base is made using a gluten-free flour blend combined with spices such as ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Healthier baking substitutes are also used such as coconut oil, Greek yogurt and maple syrup.
