Cooking With Cornmeal

Cornmeal is ground dried corn. It can be yellow, white or blue cornmeal (made from blue varieties of corn). There are also three types: coarse, medium and fine. The good thing is that cornmeal is gluten free. Cornmeal also provides a rich source of phosphorus, iron and fiber. It is also a good source of vitamin B-6, A, E and K. Using whole cornmeal in the diet can help with weight loss and improve your health significantly. You can use it for a variety of purposes, for making corn bread, spoon bread, pancakes, polenta and muffins.

Corn Dog Muffins - Healthy Food

My friends were seriously impressed with these muffins. This is a great alternative to the everyday sandwich. I served them with a spicy ketchup and a honey mustard dipping sauces.
Corn Dog Muffins are healthier than Corn Dogs, since they are baked, not fried.

      Cornmeal is rich in dietary fiber and magnesium. Also is good to change occasionally habitual diet. Thank you for the comment!
