Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Corn Muffins

2 sprays cooking spray
1 cup yellow cornmeal, uncooked
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp table salt
5 1/3 tbsp corn oil
3 tbsp honey
1 large egg(s), beaten
1 cup fat-free skim milk
3/4 cup scallion(s), chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

Recipe Directions for Spicy Corn Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray or muffin liners.

  2. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine oil, honey, egg and milk.

  4. Create a well with a spoon in the middle of cornmeal mixture and pour milk mixture into well; mix until just combined. (Do not over beat.) Fold in scallions and jalapeño.

  5. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter into muffin holes until each is about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake until tops turn golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Yields 1 muffin per serving.

  6. If you like your muffins really spicy, use the jalapeño with the seeds. For a sweet taste, omit the jalapeño altogether and substitute about 1/2 cup of finely chopped sweet red pepper in its place.
