Savory Cranberry Cornbread Muffins with a Cheesy Herb Core



  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup cranberries, roughly chopped
  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • Cheesy Core Ingredients
  • 1 cup finely grated cheese (mix of parmesan and sharp white cheddar)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Herbs de Provence


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. First, make your cheesy core. In a bowl, combine finely grated cheese and Herbs de Provence. Grab a bit of the cheese and herbs and roll into a tight ball, repeat until you have 12 cheese balls.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Make a well in the center, add in all wet ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Fill half way up with muffin batter. Add a herby cheese ball in the center. Cover with the remaining muffin batter. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tops are set and muffins feel firm when pressed. Cool for 10 minutes before serving (muffin liner will come off the muffin easily).
