Staying Keto: Homestyle Cornbread

The truth is the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is NOT the turkey, it’s the sides. Am I right? I always skip the turkey, or honey baked ham, and go straight to the sides. It could also be because I always celebrate Thanksgiving potluck style. We always ask our relatives and friends to bring their favorite dishes so it is always a thrilling experience when trying the exceptional dishes, or the not so good dishes. Haha! 


We want you to be the star this Thanksgiving, and we will provide you with some easy Thanksgiving keto friendly recipes. We are kicking this off with my personal favorite, cornbread with a bit of sweet butter. Get ready to impress your friends and family, and have your guests begging for more. Enjoy!

Homestyle Keto Cornbread


Satisfy your cornbread cravings without any of the guilt. As always, we like to keep our ingredients passionate, bold and honest. This recipe calls for just 7 wholesome ingredients. Instead of cornmeal, or traditional wheat flours, we will be using Almond Flour and Coconut Flour. Let’s do it!


First things first, preheat your oven to 325 F, and prep the following ingredients:

  • ½ Cup Almond Flour
  • ⅓ Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3 Eggs
  • ½ Heavy Cream
  • ¼ Cup Salted Butter (Must be Melted) 

Instructions:

  1. Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, and heavy cream in a mixing bowl. 
  2. Whisk this combination together until all the ingredients are combined, and proceed to add in the melted butter.
  3. Mix again! Make sure all the ingredients are well incorporated and your mix is as smooth as possible. 
  4. Pour our batter into a 9-10 inch, heavily greased, skillet. Please be very generous with the amount of  butter used to grease your skillet. This will help prevent your Keto Cornbread from sticking to the skillet and will ensure easy serving for your guests, or family members. 
  5. Place your skillet into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until your cornbread looks golden brown and feels firm to the touch. Give your cornbread at least 5 minutes to cool down (I know this is the hardest part!). 

Tips & Tricks: 

If you want to kick this up a notch, just add ¼ cup of diced Jalapenos, ½  cup of crumbled bacon, or ⅓ cup of shredded cheddar, into your batter before baking!


This Keto Cornbread is buttery and delicious, with a texture that is nearly identical to your traditional cornbread. Pro Tip: You can even use this cornbread as a base for Keto stuffing!
