I love a great bowl of chili, and nothing goes better with chili than a sweet, moist serving of cornbread. I have an all-time favorite Chili Cheese Cornbread recipe that I make for special occasions. That recipe is sweet, full of butter, cheese and honey. That recipe easts like a dessert; that is why I save it for special occasions and parties. Today’s vegan cornbread muffin recipe is my go-to for a weeknight bite of cornbread.

This vegan cornbread muffin recipes is the perfect accompaniment to my Easy Weeknight Chili. Plus, since these are made into muffins, I wrap half of the muffins in plastic wrap and toss them in the freezer for another meal later in the month. Now that we are empty-nesters, one batch is more than we need at one time.

Not only is this recipe vegan, it is also oil-free. So let’s get to it…
