Last November, I hosted a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving.  My sister-in-law made this Gluten-Free Cornbread recipe.  And, in my opinion, it was the star of the meal.   ( I guess I am not a huge turkey fan.)

However, I wanted to switch up this recipe a bit and use ingredients that my family eats. ( Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream & Coconut oil in place of butter)

PLUS, my mom came up with the suggestion of pulverizing the cornmeal in the food processor- and thus, turning the cornmeal into more of cornflour.

This cornbread was to¬†die¬†for. ¬†It was moist, crispy on the outside, and wasn’t the least bit gritty.

Here is what you need for this gluten-free coconut oil cornbread

A food processor or blender

Parchment paper


Coconut Oil

Greek Yogurt

2 Eggs

Salt, Sugar, Baking Soda, and Baking Powder


This cornbread did not last long.   I have been into using my food processor for baking lately.  It is easy to clean up.  Another trick is always to line your pan with parchment paper.  This way, your baked goods will pop out.

Like I said before. ¬†PERFECT. My favorite part was how crispy the outside turned out. ¬†I don’t know if it was the coconut oil that did that, but it was so good. ¬† ¬†If you see a few white specks in this cornbread, its because I didn’t have enough yellow cornmeal, so I used some white cornmeal too.

I made this to have with dinner last night. ¬†It was gone hours before we ate. ¬†My kids just gobbled it up. ¬†I can’t wait to make it again.
