Savory Muffin- Rosemary Cheddar Cornbread


I am in the mood to use fresh herbes in everything! I found a recipe on line for Rosemary Cheddar Cornbread that looked to be focused on healthy ingredients AND used fresh Rosemary.  For 137 calories per muffin, you can't beat the flavor packed into this muffin for the amount of calories...worth every bite. What I liked was that egg whites were incorporated along with unsweetened applesauce and olive oil. The milk was fat free, too. After tasting a muffin myself, I think I could even lessen the sugar by a tablespoon improving its "healthiness" and perhaps bring out the flavor of the Rosemary even more. I tried them out on family and friends. They all thought they were delicious! Looking forward to repeating this recipe. See my previous blog entry where I paired these muffins with a Cilantro Chicken salad for a great summer dinner.
