Cornbread but NOT Cornbread

20180115_145759For 2018 I gave up bread.  For the most part I do not miss it – until the Darling Daughter asked for cornbread with supper.  I was at a loss until I found a recipe for Cornbread that was not Cornbread.  Follow along with me – it tastes amazing and satisfied the craving while being Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Low CARB.  It is also super quick to prepare.  Great Bonuses!

Prep Time: 5 minutes                    Microwave Time: 2 minutes                  Serves: 8

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 ounces ground almonds
  • 1 ounce melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix eggs and butter first then add dry ingredients. Pour into greased, microwave safe container (6 inch square).  Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until it has risen.  Cut into 8 slices and serve with butter.

Darling Daughter’s Notes:  Just like Cornbread!  Slathered the butter on thick and enjoyed this.
