Vegan Cornbread

Vegan cornbread is a popular recipe. Research has shown that regular consumption of whole grain corn can lower the risk of developing chronic diseases [1] such as coronary artery disease, stroke, diabetes and certain cancers associated with a western diet [2]. Whole-grain foods can help to reduce the risks and improve lifespans.

Cornbread can be part of this diet.

This vegan, no oil, low-fat, cornbread recipe has a blend of sweetcorn and jalapeño to make the mouth water and make the taste buds sing.

This vegan cornbread recipe will make a fantastic side for a salad (like Summer Salad), vegan chili or a hearty soup. We add some simple twists to a classic dish that will leave you feeling guilt-free and nourished.

Make a double batch for snacks or for guests to take home a slice or two!
