These delicious, sweet, and savory vegan cornbread muffins are the perfect addition to a savory plant-based meal or just a tasty snack.
These are the best vegan cornbread muffins recipe.
I loveeee cornbread! It's the perfect amount of sweet and savory to me.
I know there is a big debate in the cornbread world.
Are you team savory cornbread or team sweet cornbread?
I am hands down team sweet. I'm sorry for all you savory lovers out there. However, you could easily cut down the sugar and make these more of a savory recipe.
I think everyone needs a good dairy-free cornbread recipe up their sleeve and this one will do that for you.
Why is cornbread not vegan?
Some of you may be asking why in general cornbread isn't vegan. This is because it uses egg and often times butter.
This is easily fixed using golden flax seeds for an egg replacer.
You want to use the golden one so you don't see the flakes of flax. If you don't care about that then go ahead and use whatever kind you have.
Then you just need to buy some vegan butter. My favorite is the country crock plant-based butter.
Everything else in the cornbread recipe should be vegan already.
These vegan cornbread muffins are just as easy and tasty as the jiffy cornbread mix.
I grew up eating the jiffy cornbread mix. That is where my love for cornbread started.
Until I realized I can make an even better and just as easy recipe for cornbread.
Can these be vegan gluten-free?
Yes, you can use your favorite all-purpose gluten-free flour and make sure your cornmeal is gluten-free.
All cornmeal is gluten-free, however, it can be processed with wheat flour so make sure to read the labels.

Hi Courtney, excited to try this recipe. You mentioned in the notes to use golden flax meal, but it's not listed in the ingredients. Should it be used?

Hi Alyssa, thanks SO much for pointing that out to me. That was an oversight. I have fixed it now. It's 1 TB of ground flaxseed and 2 TB of water, add it with the wet ingredients. Thanks so much for letting me know! Have a great day! <3
