Awesome Paleo – Gluten Free “Corn Bread”

Paleo Corn Bread

I call these corn bread because you almost don’t know the difference! To my surprise, they were gobbled down by the kiddos. The dough also make an excellent pizza dough 🙂

Ingredients:
Dry:
  • 1 C almond flour
  • 1/2 C coconut flour
  • 3 Tbs. arrowroot starch
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. unrefined salt

Wet:

  • 3/4 C almond milk, raw milk, or yogurt
  •  2 tablespoons Coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 3 organic eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons organic honey
 Instructions:
  1. Preheat at 350
  2. Put all dry ingredients in a food processor.
  3. Mix all wet ingredients in a bowl and slowly pour into the food processor while pulsing at first then working your way up to a low speed until a dough forms.
  4. Pour into an 8×8 baking dish/pan greased with coconut oil or muffin tins
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done by sticking a toothpick in the middle and if it comes out clean, it’s done.
  6. Serve as you would cornbread with butter and honey, with chili, or you can use the dough to make mini pizzas.

  1. I’m new to Paleo. Who would have thought that grain-free could look so good!

    For a while, I have been eating gluten-free. I’m in a community of people who are opening my eyes to aspects of gluten intolerance that might have been overlooked. What do you say about that?

      1. No, in fact. They feel that intolerance is a sign of imbalance in the body (that’s my understanding so far) and they advocate wheat in its purest form because it has many beneficial properties when it’s unprocessed and so on….I still like to play it safe and listen to my body. Even buckwheat didn’t sit well with me. I have to pinpoint the real issues and see for myself.

      2. I agree with wheat having beneficial properties as well, however most of the wheat on the market around the glob is a new strand of wheat which has made for digestion and other problems for many. many people. I have found only one place in the Middle East where I can eat the bread but only if it’s made from the “old dough method”, not from yeast granules.
        I don’t agree that everyone should follow the same diet, especially extreme ones with limitations, unless they are healing and/or have food allergies in which case they need restriction. I think people can get to obsessed with trying to follow a fad (I don’t know what other word to use) diet such as Paleo when it’s not even right for them in the long run.

        The best thing IS to listen to your own body since we are all individual 🙂
        I personally had to cut out all starches (went Paleo) until my gut healed, and now I am able to eat certain starches in moderation. I have found that almond flour doesn’t do well with me, so I reserve it for the occasional sweets. I eat small amounts of rice which has been cooked in homemade bone broth and quinoa and if I eat bread, it is a very small piece. I also love garbanzo beans and lentils (I could never be 100% Paleo), but that’s me 🙂

      3. Your insights are certainly helpful, Audry…yeah, a lot to think about for sure.

        All in all, it’s really validating to see your feedback. I look at wheat products, even organic and biodynamic ones, and I get a stomach ache just from that. On the other hand, I have been vegan for a while, but have been introduced to raw milk and my whole body lights up at the thought of drinking it. It’s a mystery, but it’s not too hard to figure out. Knowing the body has its own intelligence is enough.
