I made these Apricot Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins to serve alongside barbequed chicken and an array of salads. Muffins may not be considered “diet food” but man (or woman in this case) does not live by protein and salad alone – at least this woman doesn’t.

  • Gluten Free Apricot JalapenoCornbread Muffins Recipe
  • Barbeque season is right around the corner. And so is swimsuit season. It justdoesn’t seem like those two things should go together!Where I live the weather is just about perfect right now and people are alreadyflocking to the beaches, wearing shorts and tiny little tops and barbequing in thebackyard or by the pool is the preferred way of entertaining.Sadly, I have let my gym membership lapse during the winter and the treadmill Iswore I would use every day practically has cobwebs covering it. Unfortunately itis not very fashionable to wear a burka to the beach so it is time for me to make afew changes. This means getting my body moving and cutting back on some fatand calories.
  • I made these Apricot Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins to serve alongside barbequedchicken and an array of salads. Muffins may not be considered “diet food” butman (or woman in this case) does not live by protein and salad alone – at least thiswoman doesn’t. Personally I need to have just a bit of carbs to feel satisfied. These muffins arepractically fat free. I omitted any oil or butter from the recipe by using acombination of non-fat Greek yogurt and a can of Solo Apricot Cake and PastryFilling. For a little kick, I added in a couple minced jalapeno peppers. The resultwas a cornbread muffin with a tender crumb and a delightful contrast of sweetand spicy – perfect for serving with barbeque or for brunch.I’ve got a busy day ahead. I need to dig out my work out clothes, renew my gymmembership, dust off my treadmill and start shedding a few of these winterpounds that seem to have crept up unexpectedly. But first, I think I will haveanother muffin. And I won’t feel the least bit guilty about it!
