The most Amazing Cornbread Muffins with cheddar cheese--moist, fluffy and irresistible with a pat of butter, a drizzle of honey, with white bean chili, or in stuffing!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/4 cups milk + 2 tsp apple cider vinegar (I used unsweetened almond)
  • 1 1/4 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup honey (can sub pure maple syrup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated (use 3/4 cup if you love cheese!)
  • 1 cup corn kernels (optional, I love TJ's roasted corn)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together milk and vinegar in a liquid measuring cup and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add milk mixture, egg, honey and coconut oil, stirring until just combined. Do not over-mix; lumps are ok! Use a rubber spatula to gently fold in cheese and corn.
  4. Pour batter evenly into muffin tin. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


VEGAN: Sub a flax egg, use non-dairy milk and use vegan cheddar or omit.

GLUTEN FREE: Use 1:1 all purpose gluten free flour.
