Gluten-Free Bacon Cornbread Muffins Recipe

Gluten-Free Bacon Cornbread Muffins Recipe

One of my goals this new year is to make my mornings run more smoothly.   I was looking for breakfast foods I could precook and heat up in the morning and saw several people suggesting making breakfast muffins.  My son is a bacon freak so I came up with this Bacon Cornbread Muffin recipe and my family just loves them!  I used organic maple syrup instead of sugar to add sweetness to the cornbread.  By using organic maple syrup you will  get vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, what a great way to start your day!  You could also use organic honey instead but I prefer the bacon and maple syrup combination. 

For this recipe I use Pamela’s Gluten Free Cornbread & Muffin Mix, 12 Ounce Bag and pour my batter into a mini cupcake pan.  One bag makes 48 mini cornbread muffins!  I make them on Sunday and put in the refrigerator, but they can be frozen too if you do not plan to eat them within 2-3 days.
