Gluten-Free Corn Muffins

Nov 17, 2012 | Recipes | 0 comments

I love cornbread! Growing up, my mom used to make Jiffy cornbread and serve with ham and beans. I’ve developed a cornbread recipe that’s gluten-free (Jiffy is not!). I also use olive oil (Jiffy uses partially hydrogenated lard). But the result is just as delicious.

This recipe also makes a great base for gluten-free Cornbread Stuffing.
