This cornbread recipe is very simple. Only 7 ingredients and it is delicious! I love recipes that you don’t need a lot of ingredients for. Simple is so much easier!
Eating a whole food diet does not mean the recipe needs to be difficult or time consuming.
Most cornbread recipes call for sugar. Some have a little sugar and some have a lot. For this recipe I chose not to add any sweetener. When I eat cornbread I generally top it with butter and honey. To me this is enough of a sweetener. Especially if you are eating the cornbread with chili or beans.
Although, if you feel like the butter and honey is not enough sweetener and you need a little more, you can add a tablespoon or two of honey to your batter.
I have a grain grinder that I LOVE. I love to grind my flour fresh! No preservatives and it is whole grain. So much better for you!
You can buy cornmeal but it generally has additives in it. I bought some [easyazon_link identifier=”B00ML2EK8S” locale=”US” tag=”beewhole-20″]Corn here.[/easyazon_link] It is a lot of corn but it will stay good for years.
I have a [easyazon_link identifier=”B000CPJKWC” locale=”US” tag=”beewhole-20″]WonderMill Electric Grain Grinder [/easyazon_link] that I love for grinding grain into flour. If you are eating a whole food diet it is worth the investment. So much more nutrition in freshly ground flour!
