Cheesy Cornbread "Cookie" Muffins

Wednesday, 1/15/14 - On a whim I decided to try cooking cornbread in a shaped cookie pan instead of just muffin pans, and it was a success!

Butterflies for Kindergarten!
GF cornbread with goat cheese, organic strawberries, organic kale chips
I had made the cornbread the night before, so to melt the cheese, I just broiled them in the oven for a few minutes with a bit of goat cheese on each one. Goat milk has different easier-to-digest protein and sugar than cow milk, and is much closer to human milk, and the toddler and I both tolerate it just fine. And Trader Joe's sells a nice mozzarella-style sliced goat cheese, so Mama can be lazy! Win!

Lunch for my Little Princess
GF cornbread with goat cheese; organic carrots, peas, and tomatoes; fruit salad w/DF whipped cream
E's co-op preschool had had a build-your-own fruit salad bar at a family party the night before, and I brought home her leftovers. I'd brought dye-free pink maraschino cherries (also available in dye-free red) and a dairy-free rice-based canned whipped cream, which were a big hit with my girls, at least. So I made sure to include some of both in her fruit salad.

Cornbread for Mama

DF chocolate-covered Glutino pretzel chips, dye-free marshmallows, and GF MOMeo cookie
Even though I can tolerate goat cheese, I still try to stick to a plant-based diet. Plus cinnamon sugar is way yummier! I added some almonds as my protein instead.

I had loads of chocolate-dipped goodies left over from a chocolate party for my nephew, and I'm not afraid of sugar. So I packed an assortment of yummies in my already sugary lunch!

Tools of the Trade


  1. If you don't mind, I am totally stealing this idea, Kendra. The muffins turned out great!

Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
