Keto Cornbread

Oh, cornbread. Such a wonderfully light, slightly crumbly, and oh-so-cozy side dish. Whether you grew up eating it plain, sweet, or both, most of us have fond memories of eating this quick bread growing up.

Unfortunately, like most breads, it’s also pretty high in carbs.

That’s why I wanted to create this Keto cornbread recipe! Made with low carb almond flour, plenty of butter, and a little buttermilk or heavy whipping cream, this Keto-friendly version is so cozy and satisfying. And the texture is amazing!

So if you’ve been missing cornbread at summer cookouts or big holiday gatherings, you have to give this recipe a try.

Is There Corn In Keto Cornbread?

If you aim to eat low-carb, grain-free, or both, then I have good news for you: no actual corn was harmed in the making of this cornbread!

Corn is a high starch vegetable that can cause spikes in blood sugar. So naturally, it’s not a great ingredient for any low carb recipe. 

Plus, even though you can find plenty of cornbread recipes that include corn kernels, it’s not actually a requirement of “traditional” cornbread. In fact, the name “cornbread” doesn’t refer to corn kernels at all, but rather to the fact that the bread was made with cornmeal instead of flour!

Cornbread made with cornmeal will have a different texture than bread made with flour. So the goal of this recipe is to mimic that texture, which will be different than other Keto breads.

It’s all about having tasty options and getting to try new, fun recipes!

How Many Carbs In Cornbread?

Traditional cornbread is going to be pretty high in carbs. 

The actual count will vary based on the recipe and the size of the slice, of course. But to give you an idea, if you use the Jiffy cornbread mix and cut it into 9 squares, each one will have about 18.5 grams of carbohydrates and less than 1 gram of fiber.

This Keto cornbread, on the other hand, will give you 8 slices that are only 4 net carbs each! That’s quite an improvement if you ask me.

What Can You Serve With Keto Cornbread?

If you’re enjoying low carb corn bread as a snack, I recommend eating it with a pad of butter on top. If you can warm the bread up a little, even better. So simple, so wonderful!

Cornbread is also an amazing side dish for big, hearty meals. I personally can’t wait to serve it with my sweet heat BBQ ribs, Keto turkey chili, and Keto glazed ham.

I really don’t think there’s a wrong way to enjoy low carb cornbread, if I’m being honest.

Can You Store Keto Cornbread?

Absolutely!

Simply place the cornbread in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. I would recommend eating within 3-4 days to be safe, although it may stay fresh even longer than that.

Then you’ll have delicious Keto cornbread to enjoy any time you like.
