Simple, fluffy, buttery vegan cornbread with no butter, no oil, and no added sugar.


  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/3 cup (79 ml) water
  • 1 cup (155 g) cornmeal
  • 1 cup (125 g) whole-wheat flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can ((13.5 ounces) 403 ml) unsweetened full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup (118 ml) dairy-free milk



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C).
  2. Mix the ground flaxseed with 1/3 cup of water and let sit for 5-10 minutes to gel.
  3. Use a parchment paper-lined or grease an 8-inch by 8-inch glass baking dish.
  4. Whisk together cornmeal, whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  5. Stir the contents of the can of coconut milk to combine the cream and coconut water.
  6. When the flax egg has gelled add it to the dry ingredients along with the entire can of coconut milk and dairy-free milk. Mix everything until it’s just combined.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  8. Once cooled store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.
