Soup season is just around the corner... what better way to enjoy a big bowl of comfort soup, than with a Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Muffin! No cornmeal, no problem! These almond flour muffins are packed with so much flavor, you won't even miss the cornmeal. Loaded with cheddar cheese and zesty jalapeños in every bite!
Can I use fresh jalapeños?
Yes! I prefer to not seed and chop fresh jalapeños but that is definitely an option in this recipe if you would like to use those.
Where's the corn?
Since corn is not considered very keto friendly, I have not added any corn to this keto jalapeño cornbread muffin recipe. Also, we use almond flour instead of cornmeal, which gives a similar texture, but is a lot less carbs.

Thank you so much for this recipe. I missed eating cornbread and cabbage and when I made these wonderful muffins, it hit the spot. It was delicious with my cabbage and jalapeño sausage dinner. My husband was very pleased with them. Definitely a keeper.
Great muffin recipe! I had some fresh broccoli shoots to use up, so chopped them very fine and used a fluffy 3/4 cup (florets are kind of fluffy, even chopped) instead of jalapenos. The broccoli baked up bright green and a little crunchy in the muffins, but it all tasted good! I don't think I would want it cooked before adding to muffins, though. Thank you for this recipe!
Is it necessary to use pickled jalapeños or would fresh or canned chopped jalapeños work?
You can use fresh or canned

Can you use sour cream for some or all of the yogurt?
