Open your pantry and look deep inside. Go ahead, open it. Now reach in and stretch out your arm. Come on now, all the way to the back. Do you feel that neglected box of cornmeal? You know, the one that’s been there since last Thanksgiving? It’s time for it to emerge from the recesses of your kitchen and fulfill it’s potential. As long as the expiration date on the box is ok, you can rejoice and make a batch of these moist little jewels.

These muffins are simple to make. Really simple. And the best part is that you’ve probably already got all of the ingredients on hand so you can feel good that you don’t have to go spend more money to make your family this scrumptious treat.

Did you have any idea something so delicious was hiding in your kitchen?

    I make corn muffins routinely for breakfast with lots of butter. I had a few bananas sitting around and found your recipe. Followed exactly as written and they are now my new favorite! Moist and delicious!

    This recipe worked perfectly! Followed it as written and made muffins… Yummy and healthy. Gave some to friends who liked them too…

  3. I made these as mini muffins today and love them. Just the right balance of sweet and savoury when you want a little treat! I used a flax egg and maple syrup (instead of honey)… turned out great! I’ll definitely be making them again.

  4. Made these today and the kids loved them..even my picky one. I used coconut nectar instead of honey cause my little one cant have it yet. I didnt have applesauce so I used apple butter and added a little cinnamon. Delish!

  6. I only have applesauce with cinnamon. Has anyone else tried it with that? I’m thinking it should be ok…
