Why I Love This Recipe
I recently discovered that I had a gluten sensitivity issue and that cornbread was not gluten-free. Having grown up on cornbread, I had to find a way to get my fix now and then, turns out that gluten and dairy free cornbread isn't very popular (probably because it is not technically "Paleo"). So I set out to create a gluten-free and dairy-free option that also did not have any refined sugar, tall order huh? Well, this is the creation of that goal, turns out it is doable and having tried it on a few friends who couldn't tell that it was gluten and dairy free without any brown sugar to be seen, enjoy!

1 and 1/2 cups of Organic Corn Meal

1 tbsp Kosher salt
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp lemon juice
1 and 1/4 cup coconut milk (or your milk substitute)
1. Combine milk, baking soda, and lemon juice together in a large bowl and mix together.
2. In a seperate bowl combine corn meal, flour, potato startch, salt and mix thourghly.
3. In a mixer or by hand with egg white to a soft peak.
4.Combine the bowl of flours and the milk together and mix in honey, the coconut oil and the egg yolk throughly.
5. Fold in whipped egg whites gently(over mixing will loose the "fluffiness" of the finished product).
