This recipe for EGGLESS, gluten-free dairy-free cornbread is perfect for any meal, but especially a party or BBQ…
I had this amazing idea pop into my head last week. I was coming up with some recipes for my husband that he could enjoy again, particularly some of our favorite Texas BBQ recipes. If you subscribe to my newsletter (if you don’t already, you totally should below 🙂 ), I have been sharing summer inspired grilling recipes the past few months with you. I love sharing some of our family favorites in the newsletter.
The thing about Texas BBQ, or anything related for that matter, would be the fact it usually isn’t healthy or allergy friendly.
If you are allergic to gluten or dairy, most of these traditional recipes are a no go. My husband doesn’t get to enjoy many of the things he loves so much since so many things have milk or butter in them. Gluten is a big one too. If you have a gluten sensitivity, you probably don’t get to enjoy your favorites.
So, I have been experimenting with some recipes that I consider traditional Texas BBQ that my family has been making for decades, but with an allergy friendly twist.
Over the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing these recipes with you and my bonus recipe will be in the newsletter next month!
First up on the list is cornbread! Cornbread is a food I grew up eating pretty much weekly. My Grammy is 86 now, but she STILL makes a batch of cornbread every week. It is just how Texans do things I guess.
This cornbread recipe was a favorite of mine, but I replaced everything in it to be dairy-free, gluten-free, AND egg-free! Want more allergy friendly recipes? You can find all the dairy-free recipes here and gluten-free here.
Thank you chemistry!
Cornbread is also the base for one of my ALL TIME favorite BBQ meals as a kid, cornbread salad! My mom always made that for our 4th of July party, and I loved it. You can easily turn this cornbread into cornbread salad because it is so soft and fluffy too.
As you can see from the pictures, it has that perfect crumble texture that makes the perfect cornbread and it is fluffy too!
Let’s talk for a minute about gluten-free flour. Most oat flour is free from gluten, but you definitely need to check the label! Some oat flour (the non-organic type) can have wheat mixed in as well. Gluten comes from wheat, so you want to make sure you avoid that. Other flour options would be an all-purpose gluten-free flour, which you can read about in my gluten-free baking tips post. You will want to add in a little xantham gum if you use that type of flour since it is primarily made from beans. That post will give you all the details you need.
There are other flours out on the market that don’t have gluten, but I would recommend using one of these two. It will keep the consistency close to regular cornbread! Using chemistry for baking is all about switching up ingredients, while still maintaining the same texture or consistency throughout!
