Vegan Cheddar Cornbread Muffin Recipe
I have been on a cornbread kick this week, and decided to make a batch of cheesy cornbread muffins. Earlier this week, I tested a batch of gluten-free cornbread, which turned out great, but I typically make cornbread with a mix of wheat flour and cornmeal, for a fluffier texture, and came back to that for these cheddar cornbread muffins.
I added chives and a good helping of vegan cheddar shreds to my cornbread muffins, and I used banana to help hold them together. That being said, I may opt for apple sauce next time around, only because I could still taste a little bit of the banana flavour in the background; though they were not sweet, and were full of cornbread and cheddar flavor. I enjoyed them, and my five year old scarfed down a handful of these muffins as well, even though she hates onions and these were full of chives!
