Corning Glory
These muffins are pretty much perfect -- a little sweet, very moist, and so low in the calorie and fat departments, your head may actually fall off. Oh, and one more thing. They're HUGE!

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups canned cream-style corn
3/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
3/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (Fage Total 0% is the best!)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 9 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups, or spray them with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, Splenda, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix cream-style corn, egg substitute, and yogurt. Transfer contents to the large bowl and stir well.

Evenly distribute batter among the 9 lined or sprayed cups -- cups will be FULL to the brims.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 15 - 20 minutes. Eat up!

A Bit Too Corny
Corn muffins have that perfect blend of sweetness and carby comfort that makes them practically irresistible. As breakfast items or "with dinner" treats, they're delicious things to have around. BUT WAIT! That large-and-in-charge corn muffin packs WAY more than flavor. On average, it has close to 450 calories and almost 20 grams of fat. (And corn muffins sold at some popular places are WAY worse. Really.) ACK! Who wants to tack THAT onto a meal? And who thinks swallowing nearly 20 grams of muffin fat first thing in the morning is a good idea? Ummm, crazy people? Those in denial? NOBODY?! (We're betting on that last one!) Our colossal corn muffins are SO tasty, SO filling, and SO guilt-free, there's really no reason to look at a fatty corn muffin ever again. Well, you can LOOK at it -- just don't chew it.
