I always say, I know I’ve been away from home too long when I start to crave cornbread. So tell me why I have never tried to make this heavenly treat. I know I can healthify anything!! MMMMM healthy cornbread– an oxymoron? Perhaps generally, but not today! No this one is not lard or butter laden, (though a little butter on top would not be the end of the world 😉 Made with organic 100% gf cornmeal and completely oil free, one could do MUCH worse in the health department!! These come out pretty dense and hearty, which I love, but if you are accustomed to a lighter cornbread, just up your oat flour by 1/2 cup and your almond milk by another 1/3-1/2 cup. You’re golden!
1.5 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup oat flour
1 tsp coconut vinegar
1tbs golden flax
1 cup almond milk
1 ear corn, de-cobbed and crumbled
1 tbs jalapeno, minced
Nutritional yeast 3tbs + some to garnish
Mix all ingredients together, saving out a few tsp nutritional yeast to sprinkle on top! Feel free to up your jalapeno if you can handle some kick too, it really depends on how spicy your chosen pepper happens to be!!
Spoon into silicone cupcake molds for easy, oil-free removal.
Bake at 350 x 35min and enjoy!!
