Blue Bread

by HEAB on September 20, 2010

Good morning. Yoga class starts in 4 minutes…don’t think I’m going to make it. Oh well, it’s a lovely day for walk, and I’m hoping to hit my favorite trail later this afternoon…fueled on cornbread! Yes, I made another batch, and many thanks to Polly for sharing her recipe with me. Polly, it’s wonderful.

I followed Polly’s instructions, using blue cornmeal, HEABified coconut milk instead of almond milk, and I cut the honey in half since I only had about 2 TBSP left in the jar. Mmmm, I love it – the bread is the perfect consistency, not too crumbly. I can’t stop eating it!

First I ate some yesterday with my favorite massaged salad (spinach was on sale – yay!) and topped it with Sylvia’s chili-limon pistachio nut butter. Sylvia, I also threw a few of your sun-dried tomatoes atop my salad. Amazing – you should sell them!


After dinner, I ate more cornbread, warmed and served with HEABified coconut milk, and a spoonful of Naturally Nutty cinnamon cashew butter.


Looks kind of boring, but tasted oh so good!

This morning’s breakfast…


Not only can I not get enough of Polly’s cornbread, but I am still obsessed with the avocado + jam combo. So, I decided to combine them. Pictured above are 2 pieces of warm cornbread topped with 1/4 mashed avocado and a big dollop of strawberry preserves.

Polly’s recipe for cornbread is so easy and definitely my new favorite. I highly recommend giving it a try. The blue cornmeal worked beautifully, but yellow cornmeal will work just as well.
