Corn Muffins – Gluten and Dairy Free

Gluten Free, Paleo, Sides, Soup, Vegetarian3 Responses »

Okay, I was handed a challenge today.  A dear friend’s son has been having serious digestive issues, their Doctor suggested a version of the candida diet, which means basically no sugars or most grains.  He is 15 years old, and very active in sports, so starving all the time of course.  Could I possibly develop some type of bread/muffin that could be packed in his lunch, or portable for sporting events.  Sure.

Sounds easy, I thought, yeah well, not so much.  Some of the things he could not have are yeast, eggs, milk (cow goat or sheep), almond flour, wheat flour, oats or oat flour, casein, barley or sugar.  Sure, easy.

Nailed it.

Corn Muffins – Gluten and Dairy Free


  • 1 1/2 cups gf cornmeal
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose gluten free flour, I used cup 4 cup
  • 2 cups coconut milk from can, I used Thai Kitchen Organic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3-4 Tablespoons honey or sugar substitute
  • 1- 15 oz can corn (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a muffin pan with paper liners and spray lightly with olive oil spray.

In large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.

Make a well in the center and add the coconut milk, olive oil and honey.

Mix well to incorporate.

Dollop into pan, filling each quite full.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Let cool slightly, then remove to cooling rack to completely cool.


These freeze really well. I like to grab one from the freezer when traveling, after a few hours they have defrosted enough to enjoy wherever I am.

Perfect timing — I have spot of chili bubbling on the stove. That’s dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing.
