Gluten Free Blueberry Olive Oil Cornbread

Gluten Free Blueberry Olive Oil Cornbread

Private Yoga Instructor Los Angeles Santa Monica Gluten Free Blueberry Olive Oil CornbreadI love making breakasty breads and this gluten free loaf does not disappoint.

Low in sugar, this cornbread is fruit forward, not dry, and has a crystalline crunchy top.

INGREDIENTS

2 C cornmeal (I like Bob’s Red Mill Medium Grind)

2 C frozen wild blueberries + 1-2 TBSP to sprinkle on top

1/3 C sugar + 1 TBSP to sprinkle on top

2 TSP baking powder

1/2 TSP salt

2 eggs + 2 egg whites

1 TSP vanilla

1/3 C olive oil or avocado oil

1 C greek yogurt (I like Fage 2%)

Zest of 1 large lemon

DIRECTIONS

  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350F.

  • Mix cornmeal, baking powder, salt and lemon zest in bowl. Add in 2 C blueberries.

  • At low speed, whip eggs, egg whites, vanilla and sugar until frothy and air bubbly.

  • Slowly add, also at low speed*, oil and yogurt.

  • *You want to preserve the air bubbles as much as possible so the bread does not get too heavy.

  • Add wet mixture to dry, taking care not to overly mix (i.e. preserve the froth).

  • Pour into loaf pan. Sprinkle blueberries and sugar on top.

  • Bake 70ish minutes (if using a smart oven with convection setting). Add 5-10 min if using conventional oven.

  • Test around 70 min with toothpick in center to see if it comes clean.

SUBSTITUTIONS

For a lighter Gluten Free Blueberry Olive Oil Cornbread (not gluten free), substitute 1/2 C almond flour and 1/2 white flour in place of the 2nd C of cornmeal.

Enjoy toasted with your favorite morning beverage!

Namaste,

Catherine
