Freshly baked cornbread muffins with a hint of maple and crispy bacon sprinkled on top. The perfect muffin for dunking in some chili! 


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 10 slices of cooked bacon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Extra maple syrup for drizzling over the muffins (optional) 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line fifteen 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. Coat bake cups with cooking spray; set pans aside.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. In a small bowl combine eggs, milk, maple syrup, yogurt, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to cornmeal mixture. Stir just until moistened. Add in 8 slices of cooked bacon.
  3. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm. Garnish with maple syrup and leftover two slices of crisp bacon.
