PP: Whole Grain, No Oil, Vegan Cornbread

Chef: Claire Brown
Makes: 6-8 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 ½ c cornmeal
  • ½ c whole wheat flour
  • 2 T flax seed, ground (meal)
  • 1 T baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 c plant milk
  • ½ c applesauce
  • 2 T pure maple syrup or agave


  1. Preheat oven to 375. If your pan isn’t non-stick, use parchment paper to keep from sticking.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix.
  4. Spread batter in a small baking pan and bake at 375 for 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.


  1. I use flour to give the bread some rise and a finer grain but you can use gluten-free flour or all cornmeal.
  2. I usually bake this in a glass pie plate but any shape will work.
  3. Try adding your favorite seasonings, jalapenos, bell peppers or corn kernels.
