Sometimes I make a recipe and it turns out exactly how I imagine. But this turned out a little different and I’m so happy it did! For some reason, these muffins turned out to have a light cornbread flavor which I absolutely did not expect.

But wow, it’s tasty! I’ve always LOVED cornbread but I usually try to avoid corn because I notice I can be slightly sensitive to it. So creating these “cornbread” muffins with no corn was such a treat.

But like I mentioned, the cornbread flavor is milder, so you can absolutely add in other additions you want and it will taste great. With this batch, I added cinnamon to some muffins and it was delicious. You could also add things like blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts and seeds, etc. Go crazy and have some fun with it or keep it simple – it’s up to you!

And the best part is HOW EASY THESE ARE TO MAKE. This recipe only calls for 5 ingredients so no need to pick up 27 different ingredients at the grocery store just to make some dang muffins. That’s the worst.
