Cornbread is one of my favorite things. And when it is vegan and gluten free, it makes my heart sing. This cornbread recipe has very few ingredients but hits the mark with its moist, tasty flavor. The only sweetener you will find in this recipe is a quarter cup of maple syrup. And, there is absolutely no oil. I replace the oil with a quarter cup of unsweetened apple sauce. So the wholesome ingredients keep the calorie and fat content down as well.
I use this recipe to make one of my Thanksgiving staples, cornbread stuffing. Since I have been eating gluten free as much as possible, this cornbread is perfect for the holidays and for making cornbread stuffing.
A little smear of Earth Balance vegan margarine on a warm slice of cornbread is heaven on earth.
