Clean Cornbread

I have been searching for a clean cornbread recipe, and haven’t found one I’m totally over the moon about yet. So when I don’t find something, I make it. I literally can’t stop daydreaming about pairing this with my chicken tortilla soup.

I’m adapting Taste of Home’s “Buttery Corn Bread Recipe” into a clean version….because I’m trying to save myself from the guilt of eating the whole pan of my favorite cornbread out of the real, buttery, sugary, non-TIU approved delicious sounding version by Taste of Home, or my other personal favorite, the cornbread-out-of-the-bag by Marie Calendars! muahaha. Okay, back on topic, and your Ten Day Trim approved corn bread….


  • 2/3 cup coconut oil, softened to the consistency of butter
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 organic eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups unsweetned almond milk or coconut milk
  • 2 1/3 cups organic coconut flour or organic whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup organic cornmeal
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Local raw honey
  • Spray coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. In a large bowl, “cream” coconut oil and coconut sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and almond milk to oil + sugar mixture
  4. In separate bowl, combine coconut/wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt
  5. Combine all ingredients
  6. Mix until batter consistency
  7. Spray a13x9-in. baking pan with spray coconut oil
  8. Bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked into middle of pan
  9. Cut into squares; serve warm.
  10. Top each piece with a drizzle of honey…mmmm. Best part!!

  1. Hi Shelley! Bless you for a clean cornbread recipe! I’m going to make this so soon. I just finished lunch and had this and it reminded me of you – it’s kind of like your stuffed pepper recipe in the sense that it’s chicken, quinoa, green veggie… but it’s cooked in coconut milk and is freakin’ tasty! I imagine using light coconut milk helps clean it up a touch. I thought you might appreciate a new easy recipe. I don’t know that blogger, but wanted to share since you give us such good stuff! Anyway, hope you are doing well! 🙂
