Serve these muffins warm with butter, honey or even salsa! Reheat leftovers in foil in the oven...if there are any! —Laura Fall-Sutton, Buhl, Idaho

  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1-1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup amaranth flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican cheese blend


  1. In a large bowl, beat the first 5 ingredients until well blended. Combine the cornmeal, amaranth flour, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt; gradually beat into milk mixture until blended. Stir in corn and cheese.
  2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray or use foil liners; fill three-fourths full with batter. Bake at 375° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15-18 minutes.
  3. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
