Thanksgiving is just about two weeks away and I am starting to compile all of our recipes that I will use for celebrating the holiday. I had to share this cornbread recipe with you so you could add it to your menu for Thanksgiving!
Cornbread for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I love food. Over the years I have found some of our past favorites contains dairy or other inflammatory ingredients that just don’t sit well with us. While I love food and food in abundance, especially for a holiday, I don’t enjoy food that doesn’t make me feel good.
I have worked to find alternatives for our favorite recipes that include whole ingredients and eliminate dairy or chemical ingredients.
Simple Cornbread Recipe
The great news about cornbread is you don’t have to give it up this Thanksgiving. You can make this dairy-free, gluten-free cornbread recipe easily at home in less than 30 minutes.
I used maple syrup as a sweetener instead of refined sugar, so you can enjoy all of the cornbread you would like without any guilt.
When it isn’t Thanksgiving, you can pair this delicious cornbread with chili or even use it to make your own homemade cornbread stuffing.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do in our home! If you are looking for other dairy-free recipes, take a look here where you can find some of my other dairy-free favorites.
