I have a really good Vegan Cornbread recipe that I make for my family, but am unable to enjoy because it uses all-purpose flour and isn’t gluten-free.
I was inspired by a Facebook friend to make a gluten-free version and am happy to say I have just enjoyed the first piece of cornbread I’ve had in a long time!
This one is softer and lighter in texture and a seemed a tad bit dry to me compared to my other recipe, but maybe that’s expected with a gluten-free version?
But, I can’t eat the other version, so I’m fine with it.
I actually liked mine plain, but after I drizzled a little maple syrup over it, it was even better.

Tip #1: This is not a sweet cornbread, but you can always add more maple syrup to the batter or drizzle some on the top after it comes out of the oven to add a little more sweetness.
Important Tip: Corn is one of the top GMO crops produced today. PLEASE make sure you use ORGANIC cornmeal when making this recipe or any other recipe that calls for “corn” or a “corn” ingredient. I purchase my organic cornmeal from the bulk section at Whole Foods, but if you don’t have one nearby, you can order organic cornmeal online from Amazon. There is such little cost difference and it is so important to your health!
