  • Preheat oven to 400℉. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line with muffin liners.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together molasses, brown sugar, milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Slowly fold the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix just until combined.
  • Scoop batter evenly into 12 muffin cups about 3/4 full. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake muffins for 8 minutes at 400℉, then reduce the heat to 350. Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.
  • Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooking rack. Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days. These muffins freeze really well and can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
