Corny Bread and Spicy Chili


"Kinda" Corny Bread
Adapted from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan
Makes about 12 squares
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup oat flour (can use any flour)
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used rice milk)
  • 2 flax seed eggs (1 tbsp flax + 3 tbsp water, whisk and let sit)
  • 3 tbsp chia seed gel
  • dash o' salt
Preheat oven 375* and cover 8x8" pan with parchment paper, or oil if you wish (you can also use a muffin tin!) Combine half cup corn kernels, flax eggs and rice milk in a food processor. Process until creamy, pour into medium sized bowl. Add remaining corn kernels, chia seed gel, flours and salt. Stir to combine. Pour into baking dish and bake 25 minutes or so, until toothpick comes out dry. Pair with a delicious chili, these babies need a savory friend in order to be fully enjoyed!
