Cornbread is one of those southern comfort foods that make any meal that much more satisfying. This moist, sweet cornbread makes the perfect addition to any meal.
This delicious cornbread inspired and adapted from Forks Over Knives has simple wholesome whole, plant-based ingredients. Applesauce and Medjool dates are the perfect combination of sweetness. The sweet corn adds more texture and rich corn taste.
Instead of using plant-based milk in the recipe, I opted to yellow squash. Adding squash to baked goods adds moisture without the need for adding oils. Using squash instead of milk would also benefit those individuals who have allergies to nuts and soy which are main ingredients for many plant-based kinds of milk.
The use of rolled oats and corn meal makes makes the perfect blend of whole grains for this bread. You can purchase oat flour already milled. In my opinion its more practical to buy rolled oats that way it can be used for hot cereal or blend into a flour when needed for baking.
So the next time you have a taste for a good piece of cornbread, look no further. Whip us this wholesome cornbread and enjoy!
