  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1.5 cups finely ground cornmeal
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil


  1. First, preheat the oven to 350ºF and place 2 tablespoons of butter on the bottom of a 10-inch cast iron pan. Then, place it in the oven to preheat with the oven.
  2. Next, add all of the cornbread ingredients into a medium-sized bowl and mix until combined. The consistency should be like a thick pancake batter.
  3. When the oven is preheated, carefully remove the castiron skillet from the oven using an oven mit.
  4. Pour the cornbread batter into the castiron skillet and use a spatula to evenly spread it out.
  5. Place the skillet back into the oven and bake at 350ºF for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, cover the skillet with a piece of tin foil and then bake for another 10-12 minutes or until the center is fully cooked.*
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.


*Time may vary by oven or by how hot the cast iron skillet was when started
