Cornmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

This recipe has been longer coming than expected. My first attempt yielded a really dense, nutty flavored muffin, and while they weren’t necessarily bad, they certainly weren’t something I’d serve to a guest! It was the first time I used cornmeal for baking, and I used buckwheat flour as well, so I knew the flour ratios were a little off. Back to the drawing board I went…

This time I altered the amount of cornmeal used and switched to oat flour which is pretty neutral in taste. The result was a fluffier muffin which stayed moist and chewy. So basically they’re awesome and delicious 🙂 See…Cornmeal Muffins

 

With confidence, I can now share the recipe and hope you enjoy these as much as my husband and I have been!

As an added bonus, these muffins are also dairy free and vegan friendly. Gluten free is an option if you’re oat flour is certified GF, but this recipe is not.

  • Xantham gum is optional, but it does aid with binding ingredients together in recipes like this one which don’t use eggs.
