Eating My Way Through the Holidays! Special Edition: Gluten-Free Corn Muffins! For those who really cannot tolerate wheat, here’s a nice alternative to the bread basket. Not vulnerable to the dietary restriction? No worries. The taste may convince you to try more gluten free options. It’s that good. Slather the corn muffins with sea salt and French butter for an extravagant indulgence.
GLUTEN-FREE CORN MUFFINS
2 cups yellow cornmeal, coarsely ground
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg at room temperature, beaten
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt, room temperature
4 tablespoons natural honey
Preheat oven to 400°. Grease muffin tins or a 12″ iron skillet*. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, kosher salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Whisk to mix well. In another bowl, combine beaten egg, melted butter, Greek yogurt, and natural honey. Whisk to incorporate. Create a well in the dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir just until combined. Spoon mixture into muffin tins, filling only 2/3 full. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and around the edges. (*Bake 20-30 minutes if using an iron skillet.) Insert a toothpick in the center. It should come out clean. Remove from muffin tins and serve warm.
