What Do I Need To Make Sprouted Wheat Cornbread?
The ingredients for this cornbread can most generally be found in your local grocery store or health food store.
If you have trouble finding sprouted whole wheat flour, a great place to order it in bulk is Lindley Mills. They grind the wheat berries fresh right before shipping.
Here is a list of what you’ll need to make cornbread:
- sprouted whole wheat flour
- masa flour (can be found at Walmart)
- sweetener (I use Lakanto’s Monkfruit classic for this recipe, which can usually be found at Walmart too)
- baking powder
- baking soda
- unsweetened almond milk
- egg whites
- 8×8 baking dish
Is Cornbread Healthy?
When you have the right ingredients, you can eat cornbread and be healthy!
Many times cornbread recipes are made using sugar or honey and cornmeal.
Cornmeal is a personal choice for the Trim Healthy Mama because it is hard on the blood sugar.
Using Masa flour instead has been shown to reduce the glycemic load due to being treated with lime.
So, in the same way sprouted or soaked flour is better for your blood sugar, Masa (or cornmeal that is treated with lime) is better for you.
Sprouted Wheat Cornbread For The Trim Healthy Mama
If you’re wondering what Trim Healthy Mama is, let me explain.
THM is a lifestyle that was created by two sisters several years ago. Pearl and Serene wanted to change their own eating habits and then proceed to share with the the world.
Families all over the world are living this healthy life, and eating delicious, guilt-free food because of this plan.
So, yes, this sprouted cornbread recipe is perfect for the Trim Healthy Mama!
How Should I Store Cornbread?
When everyone has had their fill, you can simply store any leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 5-7 days.
Make sure the cornbread is completely cooled before storing…because moisture can seep in and ruin the taste of your cornbread.
Freezing cornbread is easy. Wrap your cornbread in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place in a freezer bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.
What To Eat With Sprouted Cornbread
When you think of cornbread, usually the first thing that comes to mind is chili.
Any sort of soup goes well with cornbread, but there’s something special and comforting about comfort food with cornbread.
Because this cornbread recipe is an E for the THM, you can eat your favorite E meal with it!
