2.17.16 Looking at the nutritional info it s a given that these cornbread muffins break down skinny but unfortunately the flavor also is skinny. From a presentation point of view I didn t like the way the top of the muffin collapsed. I also wasn t crazy about the dense texture since I m used to a lighter cornbread. It s OK. Shantelle thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

Meh. Not a ton of flavor and the flavor it did have seemed hollow. I'd rather eat something with more calories with more flavor and a more robust taste. Read More

Firstly, let me start by saying that I gave this such a high rating despite the tweaks I made because it's a good starting point for a recipe that's healthier than the usual ones you'll find here and deserves more attention for that alone, it just needs a little love to make it great! These are the changes I made: add 2 tablespoons sugar or your favorite sweetener, replace the cup of water with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup 2% milk. I also wanted to reserve some of my sour cream for another recipe, so I reduced that to only one heaping tablespoon of the cream plus a tablespoon of margarine to balance it all out. Turned out fabulous! Read More
