Honey Yogurt Cornbread Muffins

We bet you never thought that you could enjoy the sweet taste of cornbread while you lose weight, right? Hold that thought—these deliciously sweet Honey Yogurt Cornbread Muffins are the exact answer to all your diet dreams.

These cornbread muffins can be made in five simple steps, and they only count as one SmartCarb per serving on your Nutrisystem meal plan. Talk about a weight loss win! Plus, the entire recipe makes a whopping 12 servings, so you’ll have plenty to share (or you can save them all for yourself, we won’t tell.)

How to Make Cornbread Muffins

To whip up a batch of these Honey Yogurt Cornbread Muffins, simply line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners and mist each liner with nonstick cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then, in a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, canola oil egg whites, vanilla, Greek yogurt, honey and apple cider vinegar.

Gently add half of the mixed dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and slowly combine them. Repeat this same process with the other half of the dry ingredients and blend the new mixture until moistened.

Pro tip: Be very careful not to overmix! You want your batter to have somewhat of a thickness to it.

Divvy your batter into your muffin cups and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the centers are firm to touch. Make sure you let them sit for five minutes after baking before transferring them to a wire rack, and all that’s left to do is enjoy (and believe us, you’ll definitely enjoy!).

Sounds amazing, right? But wait, we haven’t even gotten to the best part. Each cornbread muffin clocks in at a mere 110 calories. And you can easily avoid any fears of having one muffin too many by logging your daily intake in your NuMi App. That way, you can always be certain that you are staying on track with your weight loss goals.
