Paleo Cornbread


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.

Who am I? I am Tina Turbin the creator of the website, PaleOmazing. I love creating delicious grain-free and always gluten-free recipes that empower the body and do not have a load of unnecessary unhealthy carbohydrates. I am a diagnosed celiac with two of my three kids also diagnosed with CD and all my recipes are keen towards better nutrition. I have been working in this arena professionally for well over 10 years now and love to share my recipes on my site where there are hundreds more: PaleOmazing or go to www.PaleOmazing.com and check them out. Please send me an email with any questions as I love to help!

Ingredients:


CORNBREAD
  • 1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
  • ⅛ cup tapioca
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup melted butter or ghee (not hot)
  • ¼ cup honey (organic tupelo, orange or clover)
  • 6 drops vanilla cream stevia
  • 2 eggs
  • Coconut oil for greasing
OPTIONAL: HONEY BUTTER
  • ¼ cup honey, room temperature
  • ½ cup ghee or unsalted butter, room temperature
Directions:

CORNBREAD
  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Grease square or round muffin tins. Square makes it look like a cornbread loaf. J
  3. Sift the flour, tapioca, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Mix the butter, honey, stevia and eggs in a separate bowl.
  5. Add the wet into the dry ingredients.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Fill each tin ½ full.
  8. Place in the middle of the middle oven rack.
  9. Bake 11-13 minutes until more than golden; it will slightly brown.
  10. Let cool.
  11. Serve with honey butter.

HONEY BUTTER
  1. Blend the ghee/butter and honey and whip rapidly with a fork or a very small wire whisk.
  2. Enjoy!
