How do I make these Cheesy Cornbread Muffins?

For this recipe you will want to be sure you use yellow cornmeal and not pre packaged cornbread mix. The combination of the self rising flour mixed with yellow cornmeal will become the base for these cornbread muffins.

 

 

I use Land o’ Lake light butter for all of my baking recipes. I have found that it has the lowest points and it tastes amazing! You can find it at most grocery stores next to the butter. It comes in a tub-with a green lid. Be sure that it says light butter-they sell one that is regular that is made with canola oil as well-so be sure to check that it says light.

Pour batter into muffin tins about 2/3 full. Repeat until all muffin tins are filled.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp Land o’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute ( I use Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener)
  • 2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute 
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup self rising flour ( I use Gold Medal)
  • 3/4 cup light cheddar cheese ( I use Trader Joe’s shredded lite 3 cheese blend)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.
  2. In a microwavable bowl, melt butter in microwave for 30 seconds or until butter is melted, remove from microwave and add sugar substitute.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine, eggs and melted butter mixture. Beat until well combined.
  4. Pour in unsweetened almond milk and stir in cornmeal, baking powder, flour, cheese and salt and stir until well blended.
  5. Pour batter into muffin tins about 2/3 full. Repeat until all muffin tins are filled..
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

Would it hurt to leave out the sugar? I’m not a fan of sweet cornbread.

Hi Sharon

The sugar substitute just adds a bit of sweetness. You can omit it, if you prefer.

Thanks

Will be making this tonight to go with chili. I may add some kernel corn (0 pt freestyle) to make the muffins larger. This also makes muffins moister since I would be slathering butter on honey on the corn muffins.

I’m wondering if I could sun gluten free flour and add some baking powder. These sound wonderful...

Yes, you could. You would want to add. 1/2 tsp of baking powder and a dash of salt to the GF flour to help make them rise. Thank you so much

My husband bought cornmeal mix, instead of regular corn meal. Could I somehow tweak this and use it....in place of flour maybe?

Lindsay Kehl

The cornmeal mix could be used in place of the flour and cornmeal-so yes you could omit them both. If you are following the WW Freestyle points, you will want to double check the points not the cornmeal mix since it may differ in points. Thank you so much!
