Dinner Time - Pork Carnitas with GF Sweet Corn Muffin


I was looking for something to do for dinner tonight, and ran across a very easy to follow recipe for carnitas.  I thought that rather than doing tacos or serving it with beans and rice, I would try and come up with a gluten-free bun that would work with it.  I decided on a sweet corn muffin using a gluten-free cornbread mix, but dressing it up a bit with honey and a few other tricks.

Drew's Sweet Corn Muffins


  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Cornbread mix
  • 1/4 cup honey



  1. Preheat oven to 350, spray large muffin or bun tin with non-stick cooking spray
  2. Whisk eggs until fluffy.  Add milk, oil, vinegar, vanilla, and honey and mix until well combined.
  3. Add cornbread mix, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Divide batter evenly between 6 wells of muffin/bun tin
  5. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.  Test with toothpick until pick comes out clean when stuck through center of muffin.
