I've been wanting to experiment with putting kiwi in quickbread for a while, so when they finally went on sale, I snagged several to make muffins with. After a lot of searching, I found a few recipes, and combined pieces of those with some of my own ideas to create these muffins. I just tried one out of the oven, and must say that it came out quite well :) I will warn you, though: these are not an overly sweet muffin, so if you're looking for a cupcake wanna-be, this is definitely not it! The diced kiwi lend a bit of tartness that really help to make these unique.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly grease or line muffin tin.
  2. Mash 3 of the kiwi, to get roughly 1 cup of pulp. Dice the remaining 2 kiwi and set aside.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, lightly beat egg and egg white. Stir in butter, yogurt, vanilla, mashed kiwi, and honey.
  4. In medium mixing bowl, combine flours, cornmeal, baking powder & soda, salt, and sugar.
  5. Pour wet mixture into dry, stirring just to moisten. Fold in diced kiwi.
  6. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling cups between 3/4 and completely full. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until tops spring back when touched and/or inserted toothpick comes out clean.
