    Jalapeno Garlic Cornbread Muffins

    Jalapeno’s signature bite only serves to elevate these wholesome gluten-free cornbread muffins. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can add 1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice to a 1 cup (250 mL) measuring cup. Top lemon juice with milk, stir, and let sit for 2 minutes.
