  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ¾ cup maple syrup

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ¼ cup plain low-fat yogurt

  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 10 slices crisp-cooked bacon, crumbled


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line fifteen 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups; coat bake cups with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl stir together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in center of cornmeal mixture. In a small bowl combine eggs, maple syrup, milk, yogurt, and oil. Add all at once to cornmeal mixture; stir just until moistened. Fold in eight of the crumbled bacon slices.

  3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on wire racks 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Top with remaining two crumbled bacon slices. Serve warm. If desired, serve with additional maple syrup.

To Make Ahead

Prepare as directed through Step 2. Divide batter among three 1-qt. freezer bags or 1-cup airtight containers. Freeze up to 1 month. To serve, thaw one or more portions of batter in refrigerator overnight. Or thaw one portion at a time in microwave on 30% power (medium-low) 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, breaking up and stirring batter every 30 seconds. Continue as directed in Step 3.
