Cheddar Chive Corn Muffins

Cheddar Chive Corn Muffins

The cutest mini muffins made with flakey corn meal, and loaded with cheddar cheese and chives.


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup yellow corn meal (medium grind)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups half and half
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped chives


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a mini muffin tin and set aside.
  • Combine flour, sugar, corn meal, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Combine half and half, eggs, oil and melted butter in a separate medium bowl and mix well.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and using a spatula stir until just blended. Gently stir in the cheese and chives. Fill muffins tins 3/4 full and bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden and a tooth pick inserted in the center just barely comes out clean.


Can also make these into regular sized muffins. Just bake for about 20 minutes.
