what makes these jalapeno cheddar cornbread muffins healthier

This recipe offers whole grains in the form of whole grain wheat flour and whole grain cornmeal. Eating whole grains is associated with various benefits including a lower risk of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

In addition, there is a nice dose of protein from the Kodiak Cakes mix as well as the plain Greek yogurt added in the process. Proteins are the building blocks of human life — every cell in your body contains protein and you require the amino acids in proteins to build new cells. Protein foods are very filling and help to stabilize blood sugar levels, so aim to include a variety of protein sources throughout your day.

Another fun fact: there is strong evidence showing that eating high-fat dairy improves fertility. High-fat dairy is energy-dense, filling and tastes great. Feel free to use full-fat Greek yogurt in this recipe! (Low or reduced-fat will also work if that’s what you prefer/have on hand.)

what to serve cornbread muffins with:

Call me crazy, but I have been loving these for breakfast alongside some scrambled eggs, with a little dab of butter or Greek yogurt on the muffins!

    This are amazing! I made them for a football game in September in which my husband made fun of me because he said no one would eat them and they were gone in literally 15 minutes! 🙂

    I just made these and they are AMAZING. I couldn’t find kodiak cake cornbread mix at target or Hyvee (didn’t want to wait to order online) and used regular mix and the egg and milk measurements for the regular mix but kept everything else the same and it worked perfectly!!!😋 my boyfriend loved them too!
