Recipe: Southwestern cornmeal muffins

Makes 12 muffins

Dietitian Tip

Stone-ground cornmeal — dried corn that has been ground into a grain — includes the nutritious bran and hull, making it a good source of nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C and potassium.

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup fat-free milk
4 tablespoons (or 1/4 cup) vegetable oil
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 1/4 cups stone-ground cornmeal
1 cup fresh or cream-style corn
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

Directions

Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.

In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar and baking powder. Stir to mix evenly.

In a separate bowl, combine the milk, oil, egg substitute, cornmeal, corn and green pepper. Add to the flour mixture and blend just until moistened but still slightly lumpy.
