Healtheir Corn Muffins

It is getting cooler with winter right around the corner, making it the perfect time to cook a pot of chili. Corn muffins are a great addition to any chili dinner. With the holidays sneaking up on us, we’ll be eating plenty of less-healthy options, so I figured it would be appropriate if these corn muffins were made a bit healthier. This recipe whips up quickly and uses many ingredients you may already have on hand.

Each muffin is 127 calories. Check out the nutritional information section at the bottom of this page.
