Both corn and millet are gluten free grains that can be used for a variety of recipes. My Millet-Corn Muffins are a quick and easy option for breakfasts, snacks, or desserts. I sometimes have them for breakfast with a side of turkey bacon or a little yogurt. Other times, they really hit the spot as a mildly sweet treat. They have a corn muffin feel to them, but because they are made from millet as well, they have more of a neutral flavor and texture.
When I serve these as a dessert, I will drizzle some vegan chocolate over the tops of each muffin. It adds a hint of indulgence, but it still isn’t overly sweet. Kids seem to like these for the same reasons that I do…mild-neutral flavors, snack-like, a little sweet, and sometimes drizzled with chocolate!
If you are allergic to corn, you can substitute another gluten free grain for the cornmeal in this recipe. I would suggest something similar in flavor such as sorghum; just be aware that the texture may be different. Enjoy![yumprint-recipe id=’38’]
