Hello & Happy Thursday!!






If there is one thing I’m craving, its a good soup and some fab bread! Now that I’ve made a slew of staple soups that are my go to’s (Tomato Basil, Curried Butternut Squash, Mushroom Soup, Corn Chowder, Spinach Artichoke, French OnionLasagna Soup, Black Bean and more!), I was craving the perf bread to accompany them!


If you know me, I love everything with a bit of heat as I truly feel that spice only enhances flavors. That being said, these vegan Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Muffins were a no brainer!!


Believe it or not, I came across many vegan cornbread recipes that were just complete duds. (these were from reportable bloggers too). After the underwhelming experience years ago, I had not explored cornbread since. I’m just so glad I caved and gave this recipe a go, because it came out SO GOOD. 








What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, flavorful, contains less sugar than most recipes, has a sweetness from the corn, notes of spice from the jalapeños, a beautiful texture, aesthetic appeal, perf to compliment any soup, perf for any season, and my new favorite obsession!




If you love all things cornbread or anything with a hint of heat, you’re going to love this recipe for vegan Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread!!












Why this recipe rocks: 







Slightly Sweet

Has a slight heat

Perf to pair with winter soup!
