Vegan Cornbread

Homemade Vegan Cornbread


The perfect versatile side to accompany Thanksgiving dinner or to dip in some cozy veggie chili.

This recipe for vegan cornbread swaps the typical milk, egg, and vegetable oil for almond milk, apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil.

A touch of maple syrup balances the earthiness of the cornmeal, making it tough to decide if you’re having this for dinner or dessert.


  • 2 cups organic cornmeal
  • 1 cup organic all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (our favorite)
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp organic maple syrup

Ora tip: add in a sprinkle of craisins for sweet tooths or a sprinkle of garlic powder with toasted pumpkin seeds for a savory touch.

Make one a few days ahead of Thanksgiving and plan to use it in your vegan stuffing.
