I always LOVED corn muffins growing up. I remember them being one of my all time favorite muffins my mom would make. Probably because they were whiteish yellow, and as a kid those were about the only things I would eat. Carbs on carbs, and I loved every second of it.
Corn muffins really were one of my favorite things until I went through my stage of all carbs are bad. Which meant corn muffins (and all muffins) are bad and definitely not something that I am allowed to enjoy. Thankfully, I am finally over that nonsense, I can get back to enjoying the foods I really love and not feeling guilty about it.
Although I am still all for intuitive eating, enjoying foods that you really love and not substituting it with healthier options. Because of that I really never had any intentions of remaking the corn muffin until I had one at work the other day. Although it was delicious, it really did not make me feel good after eating it. I felt sluggish, bloated and had a major sugar crash later in the day. Not feelings that make me want to keep eating something, even if I do really enjoy it. So, I decided to try making my own version of the corn muffin.
I also do believe that there are recipes that are just as good (if not better) than the real thing, my corn muffin recipe being the perfect example of that. I love adding my own twists to classic dessert and bread recipes simply because of the way they make me feel when I am done eating them.
So after doing some corn muffin recipe research, and digging through our cabinets to see what we had, I came up with a very delicious recipe.
- 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 Cup Corn Meal
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Almond Milk
- 1/4 Cup Apple Sauce
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 3 tbsp Ghee or Butter melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Combine all wet ingredients in a small bowl, then pour into dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Fill greased muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full, bake 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown, enjoy!
And there you have it! These muffins are perfect for a quick breakfast on the go or pre-workout snack! You can also mix things up a bit, toast them and add some fresh jam! I hope you all enjoy!
