For years I have used the Jiffy Brand cornbread mix because when I had tried a couple different recipes I wasn’t happy with making it from scratch, but cornbread is the perfect combination for soup…which we eat a lot of in our house since it is so easy to pile in the veggies in one meal and not have to cool for the week…so in my heart I knew that someday I would create my own.

I knew this lady that loved to cook and she had asked me over for lunch. When I got there she told me that she had been out of milk when she made her cornbread so she used yogurt. Yogurt?!

You know what? I LOVED IT!

When I was ready to create my own recipe I started comparing recipes to see what was similar and what I liked best and, as you know, if you have looked for recipes, they commonly have regular flour in it. The first batch was ok…but I was still tweaking. Then I found out that my friend Jamie Holloway had learned she was gluten intolerant so I added that to my list of ideas…a few batches later it was perfect!

I hope you enjoy this easy and healthy version of Cornbread…even if you don’t have a problem digesting gluten!
