Vegan Cornbread With Cilantro Tastiness!

by | November 11, 2018

I can’t think of a better match made in heaven than vegan corn bread and chili. You can dip it, crumble it, or my personal favorite place it in the middle of a bowl and pour chili on top. I added cilantro to give it a little flavor kick so it also pairs nicely with a nice southwestern tortilla soup. My toddler loved this sweet corn bread with melted butter on top and even asked for more “cake.” Another plus to this particular recipe is there is no refined sugar which is a great bonus to moms trying to stay keep this a minimum in their child’s diet. Other great ways to enjoy this bread is slicing it in half for a sandwich or pop the batter into muffin tins for some morning muffins.
