Corn Muffins - Gluten Free, Cheatin' Vegan

adapted from Babycakes : The Cookbook.

these muffins are fluffy, golden brown and just the right kind of sweet. adding pan roasted corn to the batter ups the sweetness and makes these even more toothsome. honey makes these acceptable for cheatin' vegans, but animal-friendly agave works just as well.
