There is a lot of evidence of health benefits of ginger and a lot of information on its uses. Ginger is a hot, pungent smelling herb. It is used in a fresh form and also dry powdered form. It is one of the most important ingredients of Indian food as it adds a subtle flavor and taste when cooked, along with it's benefits. It's always a good idea to incorporate beneficial ingredients into our daily diet and make sure our kids eat it them too. However, getting picky eaters eat ginger is hard and I found a smart way of sneaking it into muffins and the kids enjoyed them without any fuss or questions:) Every bite has a burst of flavor and a hint of heat. And, of course the olive oil gave the crumbs a soft texture.
