Paleo Cornbread

Cornbread never tasted so good…until made paleo! This paleo cornbread will satisfy all your southern needs!

Every summer, my sister, brother, and I would all venture out to visit my father (my parents divorce when I was very young).  One of the things my southern step-mom always used to make for us kids was cornbread, so it is naturally a comfort food. When I found that I could make a healthy, low carb, sugar-free paleo version that tasted amazing, I was super excited to share it. However, my 4 and 6 year-olds had NO CLUE as to what I was referring. Having been raised their whole life on healthy eating and living, it was as if I was speaking an alien language to them when I said the words “cornbread” and “corn dogs” to them, and rightfully so. They shouldn’t have to know what those words mean, so I just said, “It is meat with a crust,” LOL.  No matter what I called it, they LOVED it, and it makes a great addition to their lunch menu’s for this upcoming school year.

For this recipe, it is a cornbread base, so I doubled it to make a half batch of corn-dog muffins and half batch of corn-dog dish bake. You could definitely do just the corn-dog, or omitted it and just make the cornbread recipe. Either or both ways are sure to please!
