Our Keto Cornbread is made with ZERO corn, but it actually tastes like the real deal! I’m so excited about this recipe and I think you’re going to love the authentic taste and texture with just 1 net carb per slice!
So, I make A LOT of recipes. Two recipes every week for this blog and two to three recipes every week for my other blog. (Did you know I had a second blog? It’s not low carb – I started it years ago before discovering my love of low carb!)
So, that’s 4-5 new recipes a week. Obviously I love all the recipes that I share on the internet (plenty of recipes don’t make the cut), but THIS recipe for low carb cornbread is one that I’m extra excited about!
I’m a huge fan of cornbread, but we all know that corn is full of sugar and starch and it’s definitely not a good fit for a low carb diet.
This low carb cornbread contains zero corn but it still somehow manages to taste soooooo dang close to ‘real’ cornbread and the texture is spot on too! I’m obsessed.
I fed this to my kids and didn’t tell them what it was. Both assumed they were eating traditional cornbread!
Smear on some butter or use this in some homemade stuffing <— recipe for that coming this week, just in time for Thanksgiving! Get excited.

Coconut Flour – That’s right, we’re using coconut flour in place of actual corn in this low carb corn bread recipe! Trust me, it works. This is easy to find in any well-stocked grocery store, but I can usually find the best price on Amazon.You’ll mix in some baking soda and salt with this too.
Sweetener – We use and love Lakanto products. We’re using their original sweetener in this recipe. It bakes and tastes like real sugar with no impact on blood glucose, so it can be counted as ZERO net carbs!
Wet Ingredients – You’ll mix in some melted butter, eggs, and heavy cream to make a rich batter.
Cast Iron Skillet – We use our cast iron skillet for frying bacon, cooking up chicken, and just about everything else too. It’s my favorite skillet and it works perfectly for making this low carb corn bread!
We use Thrive Market for a lot of our specialty ingredients and keto snacks or products. Their prices tend to be cheaper than the local stores and I love that you can so easily sort products by diet.
Like Costco, this is a membership site, but we find that it’s more than worth it based on the amount we save over the regular grocery store.
They have monthly or yearly plans. Check it out here.
- It looks and tastes just like real cornbread without all the carbs!

🌽 How To Make Keto Cornbread:
- Mix – This recipe is pretty simple, you’ll just add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk it all together until it is well combined into a batter.
- Spread – Once you’ve mixed together the low carb cornbread batter you can spread it into a cast iron skillet or an 8×8 baking dish. I prefer cast iron because it gives a nice little crunch to the bottom of the cornbread.
- Bake – Place the skillet or baking dish into the oven and start baking! It’ll take about 15 to 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
- Serve – We like to serve our keto cornbread with extra butter and a little drizzle of sugar free honey substitute or some sugar free maple syrup! Sooooo good! If you enjoyed this cornbread recipe you’ll love my keto jalapeno cheddar cornbread!
Well, it’s not actual cornbread. But it’s close, in terms of taste, texture, and appearance! This keto cornbread is made with coconut flour so there is no actual corn in it.
You can keep this keto cornbread recipe stored in the skillet covered with some plastic wrap, or cut the cornbread into pieces and store them in an airtight container. It’ll stay fresh for about 3 days at room temperature and up to a week in the fridge.
Yes, it is possible to freeze this low carb cornbread recipe. You’ll first want to cut the cornbread into pieces and then wrapping well in plastic wrap.

We serve our cornbread with a smear of butter and a drizzle of sugar free honey substitute.
Regarding the sweetener: Yes, this cornbread is a bit sweet. If you prefer cornbread that is not sweet, I'd reduce the amount of sweetener to a teaspoon or two. Corn is naturally sweet and I think the sweetener helps give it a more authentic taste, but you can leave it out if you prefer.
