Cornbread Bites

Serves: 4 bites

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend! Yesterday morning I heard my first Christmas song on the radio while I was driving to the gym. I will be honest, I was in complete shock! I thought 24/7 Christmas music started on Thanksgiving!? I guess it is starting earlier and earlier every year! In the moment I was looking for a song to pump me up for my weights workout, not a slow song…but have no fear! After the gym, a shower and some delicious food I turned on that Christmas music, pulled out my recipe book and then spend 4 hours working on some holiday recipes!! It was a perfect afternoon! But before we start jumping into Christmas recipes, we have to get through Thanksgiving! So here is another recipe that would make a perfect addition to your holiday spread!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1/3c+1tbs (48g) cornmeal
  • 2 tbs (10g) unflavored protein powder (or more cornmeal)
  • 1 tsp stevia (or skip this if you don’t want the added sweetness)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4c coconut milk (carton)

***********************************************************

  • muffin tin
  • non stick spray

***********************************************************

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Spray 4 muffin cups with non stick spray.

3. In a bowl combine your dry ingredients: cornmeal, protein powder, stevia and salt.

4. In a second bowl whisk together your wet ingredients: eggs and coconut milk.

5. Combine your wet and dry ingredients. Mix well.

6. Divide the batter among 4 muffin tins.

7. Bake for about 10 -12 minutes.

These little cornbread bites had the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness, my favorite combination! They were soft in the middle with a slight crisp on the outside like a great cornbread!  I topped mine with some coconut butter and served them along side some baked chicken and sautéed kale! It was amazing! They would also taste great with some soft cheese spread on them or some fresh jelly as a quick afternoon snack! But the best way to eat them is with your holiday dinner! 🙂

  • My neighbors put up their Christmas lights the day after Halloween. I'm no longer surprised by how early Christmas is starting. But seriously--Thanksgiving needs more love! Who doesn't want a holiday that's pretty much just dedicated to FOOD? I already put in my request with the parents for cornbread stuffing, so I'm with ya, this time of year just calls for cornbread!

      • Haha, it's totally just the bagged stuffed, but spiced up with some fresh onion and celery. We keep it easy for the holiday :D

  • Ah, I hope you get this comment before I start cooking dinner.. I don't have any unflavored protein powder, so how much extra cornmeal do I use?
