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 Corn here.  It is a lot of corn but it will stay good for years.

I have a WonderMill Electric Grain Grinder 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!
