  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk (or sub other milk of choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar (or other)
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey



  • Preheat oven to 400º F. Line a muffin pan with parchment liners and set aside.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, add milk and vinegar. Set aside.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  • In the bowl with the milk and vinegar, add the rest of the wet ingredients, and mix together well.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until there are no more dry spots, without over mixing.
  • Into the batter, add the sliced sausage, cheddar cheese, and green chilis. Stir to evenly combine in batter. If desired, reserve some of the cheese to top each muffin with a little.
  • Scoop the batter nearly to the top of each muffin cavity.
  • Bake muffins for 25-29 minutes, until the cheese on top is golden brown and the centers are fully cooked.



  • Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread: Add 1/2 cup of very thinly sliced jalapenos, along with 1 cup of shredded cheddar to your batter, and bake as directed.
  • Green Chili Cornbread: Drain a can of green chilis and mix into the batter, and bake as directed. Drain the excess liquid off the green chilis.
  • Honey Bacon Cornbread: Cook 6 slices of bacon until crisp, and then crumble them. Increase the honey to 1/4 of cup. Fold bacon into the cornbread batter prior to pouring it into the baking dish. Serve cornbread with additional honey.
