Is Cornbread Keto Friendly?

Traditional cornbread, made with sugar, corn flour, and wheat flour, is not keto-friendly because all the ingredients are too high in carbs.

But fortunately, with some adjustments to the ingredients, you can make a delicious keto cornbread that tastes exactly like the traditional one. 

To make low carb cornbread, we’ll need corn extract to replicate the traditional corn flavor minus the carbs.

Keto Cornbread Ingredients

You will need only a few ingredients to make this delicious keto cornbread. Here is everything you will need:

Keto Cornbread Ingredients
  • Almond Flour – This recipe doesn’t require using extra-fine almond flour like most of my keto recipes. Almond meal is perfect.
  • Sweetener – use your favorite granulated sweetener, such as Erythritol or Monk fruit.
  • Eggs – use room temperature large eggs to avoid that eggy taste.
  • Butter – use unsalted butter to add a lovely buttery flavor.
  • Baking Powder – helps the bread rise beautifully and become fluffy.
  • Sweet Corn Extract – for the best corn flavor but with fewer carbs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Cornbread?

Cornbread is a quick and easy-to-make bread of American cuisine used mainly with barbecue, chili, soups, and vegetables. It can be either sweet or savory and is typically topped with butter.

Without a doubt, make the batter according to the directions in this recipe, then pour it into a silicone muffin pan that has been greased with non-stick spray. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

If I don’t want it to be sweet do I just need to leave out the sweetener?

Yes, just leave out the sweetener and add a little more salt to taste.
