We have a Jim N Nicks BBQ Restaurant near our house and I love to go there for a meal as often as possible. I love basically everything I’ve tried- the mammoth onion rings, the pulled pork and mac and cheese. But I especially love the complimentary mini muffins they bring to the table. We always get seconds, sometimes thirds.

This is a really simple recipe and they come really close to the real thing. You will need a mini muffin pan.

You could make them larger, but I love them bite-sized.

They’re made from super simple ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and soda, buttermilk, butter and cheese. Plus a little vanilla extract.

It’s the vanilla extract that gives them that somethin somethin.

  1. I made these once exactly according to recipe and they were absolutely delicious.

    I just made them, for a second time, for my Fiancé to go with dinner. She is lactose intolerant and mildly intolerant to egg. To make them enjoyable for her I substituted the following:

    • To replace the 1 egg, i used 1 Tbsp Flax seed and 2 Tbsp water mixed and rested for 5ish minutes before adding.
    • To replace the butter, an equal amount vegan butter (I think it was country crock brand this time; but all the ones I’ve tried in baking work as well as one another)
    •To replace the cheese, I used Dayia vegan Cheddar.
    •To replace the buttermilk, i took online substitution advice (since this is one of the few dairy products I’ve not seen replicated ii stores for vegans) and used 3/4 cups of oat milk and 3/4 Tbsp of Lemon Juice.

    Baking them this way was just as tasty as the original to me, and getting to see my Fiancé enjoy them with no guilt was just as rewarding as the taste.

    Sorry if this was long-winded, but I figure it’s worth it if it can help someone else Vegan or Lactose intolerant to enjoy this delicious recipe guilt free.

  2. Have you reheated these the next day or made ahead? I was wondering about reheating them and how good they are next 1-2 days. I want to make for Thanksgiving but would love to have them already done.

  3. I made these tonight and they were so light and airy. My husband and my 2 grandchildren ate 3 each.
