Keto Friendly Cornbread Using Baby CornMake a batch of easy gluten free keto cornbread using low carb baby corn and sugar free honey.
Keto cornbread is the best side dish for all Southern cooking. This easy low carb cornbread recipe uses real baby corn and almond flour to make your gluten-free cornbread moist and full of authentic flavor instead of using extract! This is the perfect companion for chili and soups. The secret ingredient in our recipe is keto friendly baby corn: did you know you can have corn on the keto diet? It’s true, baby corn is simply corn that has not matured yet, and as such it has significantly less sugar content and is low in net carbs. While many traditional cornbread recipes use cornmeal that is high in carbohydrates, most ketogenic alternatives tell cooks to use corn extract; unfortunately, corn extract is expensive and doesn’t add an authentic, real corn taste that you crave. This is why we use baby corn in our keto cornbread recipe to make the best sweet cornbread around that’s sugar-free.
Unlike traditional southern style cornbread that is full of sugar, we only use our sugar free honey to sweeten our cornbread. This gives it a classic taste that all cornbreads have with a fraction of the sugars. This is the best healthy cornbread recipe around since it fits all diets and lifestyles looking to reduce sugar intake. You can even drizzle more on top for an extra explosion of honey flavor because it has 0g of added sugar!

Jiffy™ cornbread is not keto friendly, it is high in carbohydrates and not a healthy cornbread option for many diets. Our keto cornbread is a great homemade alternative.

Can I make gluten free cornbread without wheat?
You can make gluten free corn bread with almond flour to keep it wheat free. We do not suggest using coconut flour since it will absorb liquids and has a tendency to dry out quicker than nut flours.

Is baby corn keto friendly?
Baby corn is keto friendly! Unlike its sugar laden and carb heavy counterpart, baby corn is picked before it matures causing it to be low in carbs, starch and sugar.

Another reason to use baby corn in this keto cornbread recipe is the lower cost compared to using a corn extract which most cornbread recipes use. In addition to the extracts not always being non-GMO, they are very expensive and have a fake corn taste. Our all natural low carb cornbread has the best taste compared to real southern homemade cornbread.

Tips & Tricks:
