Easy Keto Jalapeño “Cornbread” Recipe

This “Cornbread” is probably one of my favorite Keto recipes, plus its so easy to make with only a few ingredients.

It’s called “cornbread” because of course it doesn’t have corn in the recipe that wouldn’t be very Keto now would it?

Although this Keto cornbread might not taste exactly like traditional cornbread it has a great buttery taste, perfect consistency and goes perfectly with a big bowl of chili or alongside some pulled pork!

The recipe is so super easy to make. First, preheat your oven to 350 F and grease a 9X13 baking dish.

I have made a few batches, and I’m not sure if it was just because I had made very slight changes to the recipe, but I really liked how they turned out in the ceramic pan verse the aluminum pan.

The bottom seemed to get a little browner than I’d like. So, if you are using an aluminum pan, I would recommend dropping the temp of the oven down to 325 degrees when baking.

Meanwhile, combine all your ingredients in a large bowl.

  • Almond flour- I used Red Mill super fine Almond flour. I also made a previous batch with Now Foods Raw Almond flour, which also turned out delicious. The only reason I went with the Red Mill for the final recipe was that the raw almond flour gave the cornbread a darker color, so the Red Mill was better for pictures.

  • Shredded Cheddar

  • Jalapeños- Although the recipe is called “Jalapeno Cornbread” so I assume you are into the little kick that it will add, the jalapeños are optional. I made a previous batch without jalapeños, or you could just do one and only add it to the tops of half the batter once you put it in the pan. This will be great if you have kids or something in the family that isn’t a Jalapeño fan.

  • Baking Powder

  • Salt

  • Eggs

  • Sour cream

  • Grass-fed butter - I assume you could make it with whatever butter you use, but if you are trying to clean up your diet and are using a lot of butter for different recipes, I recommend looking into using grass-fed butter. Grass-fed butter nutrition is notably higher in many nutrients than butter from cows that are fed grain-based diets. Studies have shown that the milk from grass-fed cows is significantly more abundant in fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. We use Kerry Gold Grass-fed Butter, which you can probably find at any local grocery store.

Combine all your ingredients and then spread evenly into baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.

After baking, I’d let it cool for a few minutes and then cut them into twelve even pieces.

This Keto cornbread goes perfect with chili, alongside pulled pork or even making an open-faced egg and sausage breakfast sandwich.

Another trick is to cut a piece of the cornbread into small squares and stick in an air fryer at 360 degrees for 6- 7 mins and you have perfect croutons for salads or any tomato-based soup.
