This is a winner! Easy to make and great flavor. I used unsalted butter and unsalted sunflower seeds. I have tried several muffin recipes that use cornmeal and this is the best.

These muffins are wonderful. I took them to work and the gang loved them. My flour was 25% white whole wheat and I used corn flour instead of meal. They taste like corn muffins, but with a little crunch from the sunflowers. I used regular half and half, but think I'll try the low fat next time.

More like a biscuit than a muffin, more savory than sweet. Other than the sunflowers, not much flavor.

If you use salted sunflower seeds the muffins are a little too salty, unless that's the way you like them
