Corn Bread Muffins

These muffins are perfect served with a piping-hot bowl of chili, or eaten as a sweet treat topped with some fresh honey. To save a little time, feel free to use 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon of your favorite gluten-free baking mix, such as Gluten-Free Bisquick, in place of the brown rice flour, arrowroot starch or tapioca starch, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt.
