Low-Carb Cornbread

I've been serving this Low-Carb Cornbread Recipe at our Thanksgiving dinner for years and it's quite a hit. We love it smothered in my Paleo Gravy, or dipped in my incredible 3-Ingredient Cranberry Cherry Relish. The boys enjoy it year-round when I melt butter and honey together and drizzle it over the warm cornbread straight out of the oven.

Low-Carb Cornbread Recipe

I loved making cornbread when I was growing up. Back then we used a mix, and smothered the cornbread in margarine, rather than wholesome butter. But that was the 1970's when everything was low-fat, at least in our house. Now we know better and I make this grain-free, paleo cornbread which is totally corn-free!

Keto Cornbread Recipe

This Low-Carb Keto Cornbread is made with 6 ingredients in total. This recipe is so dang easy it won't bog you down when you're cooking your Thanksgiving dinner. I often make it a day ahead of time and remove it from the skillet, wrap it in a paper towel, then zip it into a plastic bag to store in the fridge. It will keep for up to 4 days when stored this way.

Sweet Keto Cornbread Recipe

If you would like to sweeten this Low-Carb Cornbread Recipe you can add ⅛ teaspoon of stevia. I've made it that way and it turns out quite well. I think it would also be amazing with a tablespoon or two of honey added to the recipe, but I haven't tried that so not sure if other ingredients will need to be adjusted accordingly.

  1. I have a question. I’m a southern girl and thinking ahead to the holidays. Every year I make cornbread dressing to serve with my turkey. Do you think I could sub your almond flour cornbread for traditional cornbread successfully?
