This cornbread recipe isn't very traditional… due to the absence of corn! The replacement is almond flour, which adds to the texture and slight sweetness. This is definitely worth trying – plus I've added bacon! Quite a lot of bacon, actually. Because, well, why not?
How to Make Low Carb Cornbread with Bacon
Add almond flour, baking powder, and granular low-carb sweetener (I used Lakanto – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC) to a large bowl and stir well to combine. Add some beaten eggs and cooled melted butter.
Add some chopped cooked bacon, salt and black pepper. Mix well.
Spoon the mixture into a loaf pan lined with baking parchment (the overhang makes it really easy to remove after baking!).
Bake in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through.
Let cool slightly then remove from the pan and cut into eight squares. Serve while still warm with a little butter too, if you like!

Tried this out for the first time tonight. Had to stop myself from eating too much of it. I would make this even if I wasn't cutting carbs!

Do I HAVE to use the sweetener? Does it serve any other purpose besides sweetner? Thanks! Callie

Not at all - you might find that the natural sweetness of the almond flour is enough for your tastes!
