Gluten Free Jalapeno Corn Muffins

Summer sweet corn is so delicious!  On the cob, in salads, or just raw, I love it!  And, I also like to add it to baked goods like corn muffins.  The recipe I am sharing with you today contains fresh organic sweet corn kernels along with the cornmeal to make it extra delicious.  I add in some jalapeno as well for a kick and some nutritional yeast for a sort of cheesy flavor without the use of dairy.  These are gluten free and vegan but you would never know because they are super delicious!  They pair well with anything BBQ, which is perfect for Summer grilling!
