Sugar can be a villain in the fight for better oral and overall health. But people watching their sugar intake don’t have to starve their sweet tooth all the time. This recipe for healthy corn muffins replaces granulated sugar with raw honey for a light sweetness with less guilt.
Honey has antioxidants known to support a healthy heart and is lower on the glycemic index (GI) than sugar, meaning it don’t raise blood sugar levels as quickly. Honey is still mostly sugar by weight and should be used in moderation.
Using whole white wheat flour also makes these corn muffins a good source of fiber while keeping the milder taste and light color of all-purpose flour. Nonfat plain Greek yogurt is packed with protein and may be friendlier to people with lactose intolerance.
Pro tip: You can swap the whole white wheat flour for a gluten-free flour mix.
Enjoy these healthy corn muffins all year long, whether you bring them to a backyard barbecue in the summer or pair them with a bowl of chili when it’s cold.
