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?

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!
