  • Dry:
  • 1 cup gluten free medium grind cornmeal (I use bob’s red mill)
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Wet:
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (can use vanilla almond milk if you like sweeter cornbread)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled (or use vegan butter)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin generously with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper liners. I always spray the inside of the liners to ensure the muffins do not stick!
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: cornmeal, oat flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients: almond milk, apple cider vinegar, eggs and honey. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir with a spoon until just combined. Finally stir in the melted butter. Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin liners.
  4. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached. Serve warm with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey! Makes 12 muffins.

Recipe Notes

To make these dairy free: use a dairy free milk and vegan butter instead of regular butter.

Make your own oat flour: you can easily make your own gluten free oat flour by placing oats into a blender and blending or pulsing until they’re smooth and resemble flour.

Freeze these muffins: allow them to cool completely then put in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. Once ready to reheat, you can thaw at room temperature, or heat up in the microwave in 30 second intervals.
