Savory Corn Kernel and Parmesan Cheese Muffins

Don't let the ingredients fool you, this recipe is actually quite easy to make. Basically just mix the dry and wet ingredients, combine them then bake till set. You can serve these muffins as breakfast, afternoon snack, or even a hearty side for dinner. Perhaps pack one or two for picnic. Either way, it's a delightful detour away from the regular sweet flavored muffins.

I especially love it when biting into corn kernels. It's the pop of sweetness from the corn kernels that make these muffins so special.
