Total Time
45 Minutes
75g of fine cornmeal
125g of plain flour
1 tsp of fine sea salt
2.5 tsp of baking powder
½ tsp of smoked paprika
100g of unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp of honey
2 large eggs
75g of cheddar, grated plus extra for topping
50g of pickled jalapeños, plus extra for topping
6 tbsp of Lizi’s Low Sugar Granola
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C Fan) and place 6 tulip muffin cases into a muffin pan.

Step 2

Add the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder and paprika to a large bowl and whisk together to combine. In a jug whisk together the butter, honey and eggs.

Step 3

Make a well in the dry goods and pour in the butter mixture and the cheddar and jalapeños.

Step 4

Use a spatula to fold together just until a thick uniform batter is formed. Scoop the batter into the prepared tulip cases and top with another jalapeño, a little extra grated cheddar and a tablespoon of Lizi’s Low Sugar Granola.

Step 5

Bake the muffins in the pre-heated oven for about 25 minutes or until the muffins are lightly browned and spring back to a light touch.

Step 6

Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly before serving.

Step 7

Cornbread is best served warm on the day made. Leftovers can be split in half, toasted under the grill and served with a little salted butter.
