The Best Gooey Corn Muffins

The Best Gooey Corn Muffins

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.

    I miss muffins. I haven't had fresh baked ones in such a long time. Might have to try these. Though I can't have a muffin anymore without thinking about that Seinfeld episode.
