Honey Cornbread Muffins

Our cute friend Kami is here with us today and I’m so excited she’s back after a little break and the birth of a new baby!  Congratulations to her and her family- it’s such a wonderful time.

I’ll turn it on over to her and her delicious Honey Cornbread Muffins…


I’m excited to be back contributing for Ruthie. I had my second child a couple months ago and have loved focusing on my family and adjusting to a new normal. Although, our new normal during these last couple months has consisted of eating out a lot or cooking previously prepared frozen meals. I have definitely craved more kitchen time creating healthy, delicious food.

Since it’s more than chilly outside, I’m obsessed with soups like my Chicken Tortellini Soup and my Simple Turkey Chili (which just won a chili cook off!). And there’s nothing like enjoying some sweet, honey cornbread as a side dish.

Cornbread can be tricking when figuring out the right consistency. I like mine to be light and fluffy but still have the cornmeal texture.

If you haven’t heard my rant about whole wheat pastry flour yet, prepare yourself. I’m officially addicted! It has all the nutritional benefits of whole wheat, but doesn’t leave your baked goods dense and heavy. It creates perfect fluffy breads, muffins, waffles, and whatever else you love to bake. You will love it guaranteed.

Try it out in my Multigrain Waffles or my Banana Muffins. Let me know how much you love it after using it in these Honey Cornbread Muffins.  Enjoy, my friends!
