Cornbread (Gluten Free, Grain Free)

Cornbread (gluten free, grain free)

A quick and easy gluten- and grain-free cornbread.

To make this cornbread gluten-free and grain-free, I used almond flour and a little bit of coconut flour. And yes, there is no corn involved here but tastes just like cornbread, even better!

This cornbread is perfect to serve on Thanksgiving or to use it to make cornbread stuffing. I have another great Thanksgiving recipe for cornbread and sausage stuffing coming later this week. So, don’t miss it out.

    Oh my, I just want to dig right in as I can imagine the flavour of the almond flour and coconut flour combined.

  • LydiaF

    I was curious how one made a grain free cornbread, lol. This recipe sounds great. I have a friend who uses coconut flour on a regular basis and she makes her version of grain free cornbread quite often. She loves it 🙂

    What a cleaver recipe! This would be awesome on Thanksgiving, but I’m also imagining it dunked into a nice hot bowl of chili. Yum!

  • Bekah

    This recipe was great!! I made it in an iron skillet, and the edges were so crisp 🙂 The inside was just a bit wet for my taste, so next go around I added two tbsp of coconut flour, and subbed buttermilk for the yogurt… YUM. I also added ground caraway seeds and some granulated garlic to simulate the “corn” taste, worked great!! Oh… and I did 4 tbsp bacon fat and 4 tbsp butter… because, BACON FAT. Thanks for the recipe!!!
