These muffins are very moist and full of spice. Whole wheat flour adds fiber without taking away any flavor. Try these for breakfast or a wholesome snack.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the molasses. Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and powdered buttermilk; stir into the molasses mixture alternately with the water. Mix just until blended. Fold in raisins. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top of the muffins spring back when lightly pressed. Cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before removing to cooling racks.

These are delicious! I had to make a substitution as I've never even seen dry buttermilk powder in my area. I used the standard vinegar and milk mixture in place of the powdered milk and water. My muffins were done in 23 minutes and were a hit! I will make these again. Read More

My husband liked this but I thought they needed something more. Perhaps some dried cranberries. Read More

I made three small changes. Instead of plain water I used a half cup brewed unsweetened honey vanilla white chai and I added about a half teaspoon of dried lemon peel and a half teaspoon nutmeg. I did soak my raisins in the hot chai for about twenty minutes to plump them up. These took 20 minutes at 350 and wow do they smell amazing! I will be making these again for sure but when I do I'll use my changes and either add double the raisins or add in a cup or so of Hershey's cinnamon chips. I'd add a little more liquid next time too or bake a minute or two less. They were just a touch dry. The flavor? Amazing. Great recipe easily bendable for small personal changes. NOTE: I did use almost all organic ingredients. I think that helped the quality of the muffin immensely. Read More

After reading reviews I went ahead and doubled the spices and added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. With those changes these muffins had really good flavor. I love the healthy aspect of them but the whole wheat flour gave them a feeling of dryness. I think next time I'll try adding a banana or some pumpkin. I did sub chocolate chips instead of raisins because my kids don't care for raisins. The chocolate was very good in these. Read More

This recipe got my attention because we love anything with molasses and spice unfortunately I ended up having to make a few changes. First I did not use wheat flour (only in bread) and then used regular buttermilk. For us the end result was perfect (p.s. there is no really good substitute for regular buttermilk). That is my opinion of course!!!! Read More

I used 1/4 c white and 1/4 c brown sugar added 1/4 tsp. of allspice and about 1/8 c more molasses because we love it and used 1/2 c real buttermilk in place of the water and buttermilk powder.

These are fantastic and very easy to make. I doubled the amount of spice (just because I love spicy) I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cloves. Yum. I was just under the 1/2 cup mark for the molasses and completely forgot the baking soda (oops) but they were still great. I added 1 cup of chocolate chips. Perfect! Read More
