Clean Eat Recipe :: Sweet Blueberry Eat Clean Corn Muffins

Share
Remember when your mother would pop the cornbread out of the oven? As I have mentioned before, my mom is from Louisiana - that means your cornbread is sweet (something I miss here in Georgia). This recipe is the perfect clean eating alternative to your traditional cornbread muffins and best of all, because of the kefir, it's probiotic!!  I have made a breakfast version here, but you could replace the blueberries with some chopped up jalapenos for a Mexican flare side dish!


Ingredients:
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 egg
1 c Plain Low-fat Unsweetened Kefir
1/4 c Unsweetened, No Sugar Added Applesauce
1/2 c fresh Blueberries

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin with olive oil. 
2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl, whisking together. 
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, whisking to combine thoroughly. 
4. Fold in blueberries.
5. Pour batter into individual muffin tins.
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on your oven.


Gluten Free Version: Use Gluten-Free Flour as an alternative



1 serving is 2 muffins

    1. With the recipe as I posted, it's not; however, you can easily make it gluten free! Just switch out the whole wheat flour for a gluten free flour and voila! Gluten free!

      Hope you like it!

    1. It has 425mg of sodium and 3g of sugar. This does depend on your brand of kefir though!

    1. Brooke - to our knowledge, the blend is considered "clean." That's a great question!

  8. Just wondering, what is "Kefir"? I've never heard of that. Also, is there a store that sells that brown sugar blend? Thanks! :)

    1. Kefir is fermented milk - it's high in probiotics and very good for the gut. You will find this in the natural foods/dairy section of your grocery.

      My Kroger has the brown sugar blend in the sugar aisle. You just want to look at the ingredients to make sure you are not getting the splenda brown sugar blend. (look for Ideal)

  10. can you substitute yogurt mixed with milk for the kefir? this would be the only recipe that I would use kefir for...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You definitely could. You would not get the same probiotic benefits, but if you aren't interested in that, it's not that big of a deal.

      If you can buy the liter of kefir at your grocery store, check the expiration date. It will stay fresh in your fridge for about a month.

  11. Do these need to be refridgerated? mine get mushy in the fridge!

    1. They shouldn't need to be refrigerated. I noticed that mine keep for about 3 days after baking non-refrigerated.

  12. What exactly is sucralose? I always thought it was an artificial chemical sweetener, but obviously I'm wrong if it's in a clean recipe. Thanks for this recipe, I can't wait to try it!!
