These Gluten Free Corn Muffins are a delicious addition to your table. With the addition of quinoa, this is a muffin you can feel good about serving.
I know for a lot of people, the hardest part about going gluten-free is giving up all the traditionally made sweets around the holidays.
I've always been a savory girl, so for me, the hardest part is giving up bread and savory muffins.
I don't bake that often the rest of the year, but when Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around, my trusty stand mixer gets dusted off, and I find myself using it all the time.
There is something about the holidays that makes me want to bake.
Of course, I do make sweets for the kids. (Last week we made a pound cake!)
But for myself, I love to test out gluten-free savory bread and muffin recipes.
These Gluten Free Corn Muffins are out of this world! I've added quinoa to them for a punch of texture and nutrition, but feel free to leave it off if it isn't your jam.
Likewise, you can skip the cheese and salt on top, but I would encourage you to give it a try. I've found that a little touch of a flakey salt helps the flavor of savory gluten-free baked goods.
