Low Carb Cornbread… WHAT!?

Cornbread re-invented. It's like the wheel...but better

Cornbread re-invented.
          It’s like the wheel…but better

When I was growing up one of my FAVORITE things to eat (besides rice -yes WHITE- with brown sugar and cinnamon on top) was cornbread with butter and syrup. Just thinking about it will practically get me salivating. Well, an empty hour this afternoon and a craving for my nostalgic snack got me in my kitchen with a fresh idea… Cornbread re-invented.

Gray tried it…and is now eating his second helping as I type- I take that as a win! The texture is good and the muffins are very fluffy, without being too dense or overly grainy.
You better believe I dug right in…sans the butter and with sugar free syrup this time 😉

Try it out!!
