(Servings: Makes 12 muffins)

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten free medium grind cornmeal
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 2 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened milk of choice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted & cooled (if vegan, feel free to replace with a minimally processed vegan butter)
  • 1 chopped jalapeño, white pith & seeds removed
  • 1 packet Atlantic Sea Farms Ready-Cut Kelp, drained

Optional Toppings:

  • Flakey salt
  • Additional sliced rings of jalapeño


-Preheat oven to 375F.

-Grease a 12-cup muffin pan with your choice of fat like butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, etc. Using liners is another option but greasing them still ensures the muffins won’t stick.

-In a mixing bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients, removing any large lumps.

-In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, apple cider vinegar, eggs, honey, & butter. Once evenly mixed, fold in your chopped jalapeño & kelp.

-Add the dry ingredients to the wet & evenly mix.

-Divide batter evenly across the muffin pan & sprinkle each with a bit of flakey salt. If you sliced extra jalapeños, add them now as a topping. Bake for 18-2o minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Every oven is slightly different, so if you need a couple extra minutes that’s okay.

-Let cool slightly & enjoy!


-These muffins freeze well. Just let them fully cool first, then you can freeze them for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, let them fully thaw, then reheat in the oven at a low heat.

-These muffins are also great grilled! Just slice them in half, add a bit of butter to a pan over medium-high heat, place the muffin halves in cut side down, & sear until golden brown & slightly crispy.
