Today I’m sharing something that’s often passed around our Thanksgiving table, a gluten-free cornbread muffin that in my opinion have earned the title the Best Corn Muffins!

Muffins, to the max

If your family is like mine then we always serve corn in some fashion for Thanksgiving. Cornbread, creamed corn, corn hash, etc.; this year I wanted to reinvent the traditional cornbread that we often served and make this one gluten free so the entire family can enjoy! I promise you, your family and friends love them! If you’re wondering about the health benefits and nutrition behind corn, check out this blog post for the 411 where I chat about organic corn, gmo’s, and all that jazz.

  2. In a small bowl, mix almond milk, apple cider vinegar, and baking soda to combine and set aside. This acts like buttermilk.
  3. To make pureed corn, simply heat the frozen corn and puree in a blender with an added 1/4 cup water. Blend until smooth. In another small bowl, whisk eggs, maple syrup, and the pureed corn until well combined. Stir this mixture into the almond milk mixture and set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, gluten free flour mix, sea salt, and almond meal. Add wet mixture to this bowl and stir to combine. Using a large spoon, place about 2 tablespoons or enough to fill about 3/4 of the muffin tin, full. Repeat this will all muffin tin spots. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a tester comes out clean from the middle. Let cool completely on a plate or cooling rack.
  5. To store: place in a ziploc bag and keep at room temperature for 1 week or place in the [url href=”https://nutritionstripped.com/5-tips-store-leftovers-later/” title=”5 Tips to Store Leftovers for Later”]freezer[/url] for later.

Notes
Make it vegan: use a 2 flax eggs instead of 2 whole eggs, [url href=”https://nutritionstripped.com/vegan-egg-replacers/” title=”Vegan Egg Replacers”]here[/url].

Brands I use for this recipe: cornmeal and gluten free flour mix. I can’t wait to share the cornbread recipe this was inspired by, in my cookbook next year! Hint, hint, it’s a family recipe and it’s gooood.
