There is nothing better than a hearty slice of cornbread alongside a bit Southern meal, but sometimes it's nice to try a healthy alternative. This recipe for Lightened Up Cornbread Muffins will allow you to enjoy a Southern recipe for cornbread that is moist and tasty, but a little healthier. Applesauce replaces some of the fat that you would normally use to make cornbread, but these muffins are still rich and crumbly. Because this cornbread batter is made into muffins, it also bakes much faster than your typical cornbread recipe.
