Cornbread muffins made with REAL corn! You read that right-real corn baked right in! 🙂

Split open one of these amazing muffins and just check out all those kernels! The  corn and corn meal combine to make the ultimate cornbread muffins! The other night I made some three bean vegetarian chili and I usually make my favorite corn bread recipe for this soup, but I was wanting to try a muffin recipe. I was searching for a new recipe on and came across this amazing recipe.

It had many high ratings, rave reviews, and real corn! The original recipe called for frozen corn, but having none on hand, I used a whole can of corn. Let me just say-oh my goodness, these are awesome! To make these even more addicting, serve with honey butter or maple pecan butter.
