Gluten Free Cornbread Muffins

Sharing is caring!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and like you, I can’t wait! It’s great to get together with friends and family, reflect and give thanks for all the blessings in your life, and the best part of all, eat good food!! When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, I am a traditionalist. I don’t mind new additions to the menu, as long as I have the essentials covered- cornbread muffins being one of them.

Within the past few years, we discovered that my husband and son have allergies to wheat so I took on the challenge of coming up with gluten free versions of all our favorite baked goods, including cornbread. These Gluten Free Cornbread Muffins are sweet and tender, you would never guess that they were sweetened with just honey . The addition of fresh corn adds an extra depth of texture and moistness. They will be a sure hit with any crowd whether your guests are gluten intolerant or not.
