I love cornbread but with so much discussion around corn these days I thought I'd develop a recipe that tastes like cornbread without the corn! I like the flavor of cornbread especially with my stews, soups and heartier meals and since we are nearing Thanksgiving I thought it was only best to get this out to you all to enjoy sooner rather than later!
I have now created a paleo cornbread recipe that is absolutely out of this world. Especially when paired with my honey butter recipe (included below). Many people think corn is a vegetable, and a healthy one at that, but it is actually a grain. The word “corn” comes from Latin and literally means “grain”! Not only is corn a grain, therefore should be avoided if you are following a paleo diet, but another good reason to stay away is this: 85% of the corn planted in the United States in 2009 was genetically modified, and things have gotten worse since then. You can learn more and understand the non-GMO seal that informs and protects us.
