Vegan Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins

These muffins aren’t exactly a healthy recipe per se, but they are totally plant-based. Vegans need a cheat meal every once in awhile too! Like any muffin, they are very simple and don’t take very long to make, and if you’re a cornbread fan like me - you’re going to love them.

Dice the jalapeños to your liking - I kept mine at a medium-sized dice but you can absolutely make them smaller if you wish. I added some creamed corn as well which was a lovely addition as it kept the muffins nice and moist. The vegan parmesan I used is the Parma brand in Better than Bacon flavour. I love this stuff - and they’re 100% right, it is truly better than bacon! Check out they’re products on their website: because they have a whole line up of different flavours to choose from!

Add the corn and jalapeños to the wet ingredients and pour into the dry ingredients. Bake in muffin cups for 14-16 minutes at 400 F until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

I topped my raw muffins with a jalapeño slice just to make them look a little bit more special :)

Once cooked, you can enjoy them warm with a bit of vegan butter or they are also delicious cold. Whatever you prefer! Enjoy!
