Fat Free Cornbread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Goodheart

This is my own variation of a great healthy recipe published by Dr. Dean Ornish. I love this with bean soups. The 7x9 pan fits perfectly in the toaster oven. A jar of applesauce goes bad quickly in my home, so I started buying the 6 packed individuals.

I'm not sure if I'm just not accustomed to cornbread, or if I just expected something sweeter... but we all found this to be rather bland. It wasn't BAD, exactly, it just didn't taste like much at all. It would make a great vehicle for a spicy accompaniment, though. I did use whole wheat flour and replace part of the cornmeal with corn kernels, and I used soymilk. I thought the 7x9 pan was too large, though less so after it baked because it rose some. The recipe did make eight VERY generous portions! Thanks for posting.
