Cornmeal Chia Muffin

Sugar-Free Cornmeal Chia Muffin Recipe

I think cornmeal muffins are delish! But regular cornmeal muffins are full of refined white flour and sugar!!! Not exactly the thing that a lady with Insulin Resistance, Prediabetes, or Type 2 Diabetes should be eating! 

No worries though...my Cornmeal Chia Muffin Recipe is Diabetes friendly, super healthy, has whole grain fiber, bean flour, chia and NO sugar at all!!! Yup no sugar. Instead my Cornmeal Chia Muffin's are sweetened with blood-sugar-friendly dates!

So let's make some Sugar-Free Cornmeal Chia Muffins!


Cornmeal Chia Muffin Recipe – The Ingredients

Makes 12 muffins

Bake time: 17 minutes at 350 degrees.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 c. Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Cornmeal
  • 1 c. Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (Cool! There are beans in here!)
  • 1/4 cup chia meal/or flaxmeal
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 c. milk alternative (I use unsweetened SILK Soy milk)
  • 10 dates

Cornmeal Chia Muffin Recipe – Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together.
  • Blend the wet ingredients making sure the dates are thoroughly blended, so blend for at least a minute. You do NOT have to soak the dates first.
  • Combine the dry and wet and mix well with a whisk.
  • Bake in a parchment-paper-lined muffin pan for 17 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Storage: These Cornmeal Chia Muffins keep on the counter in a jar for 3 days (if you don't eat them first!). 

You can freeze these muffins too!

Grinding Chia Seeds Into Flour

You can easily grind chia seeds into flour with a coffee grinder or a high-speed blender (like a Vitamix).

If you use a blender, grind about 1.5 cups of chia at a time.

Store your ground chia in a jar in the fridge or freezer.

If you can't grind up chia seeds, you can use ground flax, it will work the same.

Joan's Favorite Cornmeal Chia Muffin Combos

You can eat my Cornmeal Chia Muffins with soup, a stew or as a snack. We often make Cornmeal Chia Muffins when we have chili or soup.

Personally, I love these cornmeal chia muffins with peanut butter or mashed avocado!

I also think these Cornmeal Chia Muffins taste better on day 2!
