You are not going to believe this, I found a delicious, gluten free, grain free, and Paleo friendly recipe for cornbread! I was kind of sceptical when I first seen this one. How in the world could something that doesn’t have cornmeal in it, taste like cornbread? I was willing to try it though, since I really missed having it when I made chili or soup.

Almond Flour Cornbread

When I mixed it up I was surprised to see that the wet batter looked an awful lot like my regular cornbread batter. It also baked up beautifully golden brown, just like cornbread. Could it be possible I thought? After taking my first bite I am happy to say, “Yes, it is possible”! This incredible recipe, while not having the exact same texture, comes very, very close in flavor to cornbread. I can once again enjoy this Southern treat, along with my family who liked it as much as I did!  I did make a slight adaption to the original recipe. I lessened the amount of honey from 1/3 cup to 1/4 cup. While I like a slight sweetness in my cornbread, the original was a little to sweet, almost like a cake. With the lesser amount though, it came out perfect.

Almond Flour “Cornbread"


  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour

  • Place the flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Add the honey and eggs and stir until fully combined and no lumps remain.
  • Pour into a well greased, 8 x 8 inch baking pan and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes, slice and enjoy.

    • It's rough for people who cant eat gluten, especially young ones. There seems to be gluten in just about everything. I hope he enjoys it.

  1. This is a genius recipe. OH MY GOSH. Fabulous. I only added 3 eggs and instead added 3 T coconut oil, and used agave instead of honey, but I swear, this is incredible.

  2. I can't wait to try it. I'm eating Daniel friendly from the bible so I'm using date honey instead. Hope it taste great. Thank you so much.
