I just found out I love corn bread. Clean eating corn bread, to be exact.
Would you believe I’ve never had corn bread before? I think I tasted one little crumb at a restaurant once, but it was a crumb. And it was little.
So when I decided to make chili for dinner the other night, I thought… what the heck. I’ll make corn bread too. How hard can it be?
I went online to find a corn bread recipe, and do you know that only ONE recipe came up for clean eating corn bread? One!
I was happy to find it until I went to actually make the recipe and realized it was missing some critical information. At one point in the ingredient list, it says: “4 tbsp. For Baking”.
4 tablespoons of what???
And it was all down hill from there.
It was not a great recipe. But the good news is, I was able to improvise. And you know what? It turned out to be some darned good corn bread, if I do say so myself!

This delicious corn bread is the perfect replacement for your old recipe that uses processed ingredients. Delicious!! Note: Use organic corn products to avoid GMO corn.
- 1 cup plain yellow corn meal
- 1 cup corn flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (affiliate link)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 4 tbsp. honey
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk (almond or soy milk work too)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 cup corn - optional (frozen, no sugar added)
Preheat oven to 425 F.
In a large mixing bowl, mix your dry ingredient together with a whisk.
In a separate large mixing bowl, mix your wet ingredients, including the frozen corn.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just barely blended. Lumps are okay. Don't over mix.
Scrape batter into baking dish and bake for 15 -20 minutes. If you think you need longer than 15 minutes, check it every minute thereafter, or you'll end up with burnt corn bread. If you like a lighter color on top, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the top for the last 5 minutes of baking.
Corn bread is done baking when you can poke it with a toothpick and it comes out clean.
Slice into 15 pieces, and serve while it's hot!
