Gluten Free Honey Cornbread

This is a delicious healthier version cornbread that goes wonderful with any stew, soup, or chili. Cornbread is also a wonderful stand alone snack when warmed and dressed with some jam. Cornbread has a long history and has been filling bellies for many many years.

This is the recipe for a 9x9 pan, If you are using a 9x12, simply double your recipe. The 9x9 pan will get you approximately 8-10 squares of cornbread depending on the size of your squares. *Note* Do not overcook your cornbread or it will dry out. You can store your cornbread in an air tight container at room temperature for 2 days or in the fridge for a week. Simply take the cornbread out of the fridge and warm in oven.

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (you want to bake your cornbread in a pre-warmed oven for best results.)

  • Grease your pan well with either butter or coconut oil.


  • 1 cup non-gmo yellow cornmeal

  • 1 cup regular or gluten-free all purpose flour (you can also do almond flour or your own gluten free mix)

  • 1/2 cup raw honey

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • Pinch of pink salt

  • 3/4 cup nut milk or whole milk

  • 6 tbsp melted and slightly cooled grass-fed butter (can substitute with coconut oil)

  • 2 eggs lightly beaten (or flax egg substitute for vegan cornbread)


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Grease the baking pan.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking powder.

  • Add the butter and honey and stir well

  • Add beaten eggs and milk; stir to combine.

  • Pour into prepared baking pan.

  • Sprinkle with cinnamon (optional)

  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife is inserted into center of pan and comes out clean. Let cool a few minutes then cut into 9 even squares. Serve with butter, jam, or more honey.

One of my great great great uncles was known for only eating cornbread for his entire life. It was written in his obituary! LOL. I think he may have snuck in a few other things :) I love your white shirt -- so crisp and clean!
