VIDEO: 3-INGREDIENT GINGERBREAD SPICE FLAVORING

This time of year, I turn into a gingerbread freak (as I’ve talked about in past posts.) There’s something so cozy and seasonal about these flavors but it’s not like I can go about eating big hunks of it every day.

So, a few years back, I created a Gingerbread Smoothie recipe for PopSugar and since then, I’ve been mixing this gingerbread “flavoring” into more everyday dishes – like oatmeal, this time of year.

HOT CEREAL – Add 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1 tablespoon molasses to one cup of hot cereal bowl of oatmeal, quinoa or other hot breakfast cereal.

BATTERS – Make gingerbread pancakes, gingerbread waffles or gingerbread muffins by swapping in molasses for the sweetener in your recipe and adding in cinnamon and ground ginger. Here’s Serena’s Puffy Gingerbread Oven Pancake with Wild Blueberries recipe.

FRUIT CRISPS – I created this Gluten-Free Winter Fruit Crisp with Gingerbread Crumble and made it on several occasions.

And for the ultimate gingerbread recipe, try my Peanut Butter Gingerbread – makes for a delicious and memorable baked good gift, too!
