Paleo Cornbread – Ingredients

Blanched almond flour – the main ingredient in this paleo cornbread recipe. It offers a great depth of flavor and a nice soft crumb.
Arrowroot powder – this is added to this grain free cornbread recipe to give it more of a gluten/bread texture.
Honey – the perfect unrefined sweetener.
Eggs – Binds everything together and gives this cornbread some body.
Baking soda – any type of bread will need some sort of leavening to get it to rise. For this recipe we’re using baking soda. (Don’t use baking powder!)
Oil – I use and prefer avocado oil in this gluten free paleo cornbread, but you can substitute melted coconut oil if you’d like.
Salt – Enhances the flavor of each ingredient.

Paleo Cornbread – How To Make

First, preheat the oven to 350 ℉ and line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.

Next, combine the almond flour, arrowroot, salt, and baking soda into a mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

Then, add in the honey, oil, and eggs and mix until a batter forms. Don’t over mix.

Finally, pour the cornbread batter into the parchment lined baking dish and bake for 28-32 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

You can serve warm but it will continue to set up until it reaches room temperature.

Gluten free cornbread is a great side dish for meals like chile or soup. It’s kid friendly and super comforting.

Serve with butter, maple syrup, or honey. Who says paleo recipes aren’t delicious?! Enjoy!

Paleo Cornbread Tips

I used an 8×8 glass baking dish. If you use metal your results may vary and your cook time might be slightly different so be sure to keep an eye on it.

I like to use unbleached parchment paper so chemicals don’t leech into my food while baking.

I haven’t made paleo cornbread muffins with this recipe yet, but it should work! Let me know if you try it!

This recipe doesn’t work well with flour substitutions. Especially coconut flour. So stick to the recipe for this one. 🙂
