The Hogan is the traditional home of the Navajo people. Blue corn is a variety of Indian corn that has a blue kernel and is course when ground. Although it is a difficult crop to grow, it has been a staple crop in the diets of the peoples of the Southwest for centuries. Flavors of the Hogan mixes have been developed by the Navajo people so that anyone can prepare them in their own home. Enjoy the rich, sweet, nutty flavor that blue corn brings to these delicious muffins. We love them with our favorite soup but they pair well with just about anything. We also like to add a spoonful of Honeyville’s Cinnamon Whipped Honey for a smooth and creamy cinnamon treat.
Optional: add diced jalapeno, green chili or onions for an extra kick.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees (F).
Pour mixture from bag into bowl and stir to break up any lumps. In a separate bowl beat egg, add oil and water or milk. Add liquid to dry ingredients. Stir with a fork just until combined (do not overbeat).
Drop batter into buttered muffin tins 2/3 full. (Do not use paper muffin liners).
Bake for 12-18 minutes until tops are slightly golden brown.
