Today for March Muffin Madness we have Cassidy from Cassidy’s Craveable Creations and the Keto Breads Cookbook sharing her Paleo Sweet Cornbread Muffins. Make that “Cornbread” as we know that corn is not included in paleo recipes. Cassidy’s recipe is gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free, vegetarian, paleo, and primal.Cassidy is a very talented recipe creator and a real sweetheart! Three of her most popular recipes are her Grain-Free, Nut-Free Angel Food Cake (I know … I didn’t think that type of angel food cake was possible either!), her Grain-Free Fruit Squares, and her No-Bake Brownie Bites. You’ll want to check them all out and visit her blog and her Keto Breads Cookbook, which I reviewed here on gfe—and shared her Keto Waffles (or Pancakes) recipe!

Without further ado, I’m turning the floor over to Cassidy …
I’m Cassidy from Cassidy’s Craveable Creations and I’m a mom of 2 kids, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. Because my son is on the spectrum we have been gluten and dairy free since June of 2009 and have seen a drastic improvement. In addition to cooking gluten and dairy free, I also try to cook without soy, refined sugar, and grains. So when my sister-in-law made the most awesome cornbread I had ever eaten, I knew I wanted to create a paleo version. And I was able to do so by using coconut flour as it can taste surprisingly like cornmeal!
However, these are a little bit different than your typical cornbread recipes as these Paleo Sweet Cornbread Muffins are not only sweet, they’re almost cake-like. I think that’s why we like them so much! They have become a staple in my house because not only are they tasty and easy to make, but they can be served as a side with almost any meal AND be served as dessert with dairy-free butter or coconut oil and maple syrup drizzled on the top—it’s a “win win”! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Paleo Sweet Cornbread Muffins Recipe
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees and line a muffin tin with nine baking cups.
- Whisk the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and sea salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Add the eggs, honey, milk, and coconut oil to another bowl and mix well.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.
- Evenly divide the batter between the baking cups.
- Bake 17 -19 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Cool completely to properly set up.
Bob's Red Mill almond meal will not work in this recipe. Finely ground almond flour, like Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour, must be used.
All types of dairy-free milk are acceptable in this grain-free, paleo recipe except for rice milk because it's grain based.
From Shirley: My favorite brand of coconut flour is this brand.
Gfe reader Dianne reports: "Instead of muffins, I also bake the batter in a 9x9 greased pan for 25 to 30 minutes and then cut into squares."
