That is why I am all over these Sugar Free Cornbread Muffins. I like that this is a tasty recipe and that I do not even miss the sugar in it.

Sugar Free Cornbread Muffins
You may not know this about me.
I am an avid fitbit user. Every week I compete with other fitbit users in a (work) weekly challenge to see who can achieve getting in the most steps in. On some weeks, I win the challenge- not bad since I am a bit more chronologically gifted than the others. On other weeks, I am just a participant. No matter what the outcome may be in these challenges, we are all benefiting by staying active. As a result, we are having fun as well.
Here is a peek at a new fitbit option.
I am showing you how much I am enjoying my new firbit ionic. This ionic was sent to me from the folks at Best Buy. It is part of their Top Tech list. Best Buy identified the coolest and best tech to gift this season. This is on that list. As an avid fitbit user, I can tell you that this is a great gift for anyone on your list. Including yourself.
Cornbread muffins are pretty classic this time of the year.
While we like to eat our cornbread as slice of cornbread or as part of another dish, muffins remain a popular option as well. That is because muffins are all ready in individual portions and they can be eaten while on the go. I like baking extra muffins because my family can eat them later or even take them with them when they are heading out the door. Also, we can probably agree that cornbread can taste good warm or cold. Although, the smell of warm cornbread muffins just out of the oven is a smell that I do like a lot.
As a bit of a disclosure, it would be impossible to make cornbread 100% sugar free.
That is because we use cornmeal as the most important ingredient in it. Cornmeal has about 2.25 grams of sugar per cup in it. This recipe calls for 1 1/4 cup of cornmeal (about 3.125 grams total sugar) and will yield about 12 regular sized muffins. Thus, each muffin will have about .26 grams of sugar in it. Technically, the FDA says that something needs to have less than .5 grams of sugar in it to be sugar free.
However, there is a such thing as gluten free cornmeal.
Regular cornmeal does not come from wheat which contains gluten. However, sometimes manufacturers will add extra ingredients to their corn meal which may also add gluten. As a result, you can buy actual gluten free cornmeal on Amazon. Amazon also has really cool baking pans for cornbread muffins.

- Sugar alternative- 1/2 cup sugar equivalent.

How to make this recipe
- Preheat your oven to 400. Prep your muffin pan for nonstick. I like to use parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together your butter, milk and egg (by hand for best results).
- In another bowl, combine together your cornmeal, flour, sugar alternative, baking powder and salt.
- Slowly add the contents of the bowl with the cornmeal to the bowl with the wet ingredients. Stir together until slightly mixed- taking care to not over-mix. Batter should have a few lumps in it.
- Bake until a toothpick comes out clean – about 22-25 minutes.
