It took me a really long time to find a cornbread recipe that I liked…& then we decided to cut all animal products out of our diet. & so, following is the vegan, no sugar, oil, or processed ingredients version of my favorite cornbread recipe. Let it be known that my kids LOVE this (so do the adults) & we aren’t really big cornbread fans. It’s a keeper!
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 can corn (pureed with corn liquid in blender)
1 can corn, drained (not pureed)
1/2 cup chia gel (add 2 T. chia seeds to 4-5 T. water, let sit 10 minutes)
1 medium onion, diced
1 garlic clove – minced
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
1 can coconut milk
Sautee the onion in small amounts of water for 25-30 minutes, stirring & adding water as needed.
Add minced garlic & jalapenos & saute for an additional 5 minutes.
Mix cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt in a medium sized bowl.
Add syrup, pureed corn, chia gel & coconut milk – mix well.
Add drained corn & onion mixture. Stir to mix.
Line a 9×13 glass pan with aluminum foil & bake at 375* for 30 minutes.
Allow to cool before turning out of pan.
