Paleo Cornbread

Paleo Cornbread

I like the flavor of cornbread especially with my stews, soups and heartier meals. I 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.

I definitely don’t want to be feeding “frankenfoods” to my family and friends, but certain meals just cry out for a side of cornbread! I mean, who can eat a hearty winter stew without thinking about a warm slice of corn bread or even a corn muffin, of course slathered in warm honey butter?! Not me! That’s why I was so happy when I developed this simple recipe that tastes just like the real thing but is so much better for you!

Stew is not the only dish cornbread goes well with. Don’t be afraid to get creative with this one. Make a flavorful soup of your choice and always make extras. Most soups and stews freeze beautifully and help you adhere to your diet when in a pinch, or to make a last minute dinner for the family.

    When you say 1/8 cup tapioca..is that flour? And are there any subs for the vanilla stevia? This sounds amazing and I can’t wait to make it..thanks!

      Hi Rita,

      Yes, it’s tapioca flour.

      I don’t have any substitutes for the vanilla stevia. It is the ingredient that makes the recipe taste like cornbread. You can try plain stevia or another kind of sweetener, but I have no clue as to what the flavor outcome will be.

      I hope this helps!

      Fondly,
      Tina
