This is a classic Vegan Cornbread recipe that is quite moist and really easy to make.
You probably already have all the ingredients on hand, with the exception of cornmeal, unless you use it on a regular basis.
The only thing I really use it for is to make cornbread so that’s the only reason I already had some.
I don’t know why, but the majority of the time I make it for breakfast and rarely as a side dish to a meal like chili.
This cornbread is dense in texture and not a sweet cornbread, but you could easily make it as sweet as you like just by adjusting the amount of maple syrup in the recipe.

Tip #1: This is a very dense cornbread and not a sweet cornbread, which I like. However, if you like a sweeter cornbread, just increase the maple syrup by 1 – 2 tablespoons until you get it to the sweetness you prefer.
Tip #2: If you are not using a glass pan, bake the cornbread at 375 degrees.
Tip #3: I use homemade almond milk instead of buying boxed milk…it’s really easy to make and tastes much better too!
Tip #4: Important: Corn is one of the top GMO crops produced today. 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 here. There is such little cost difference and it is so important to your health!
