I grew up eating Southern Soul Food Cornbread. It’s around for Sunday dinner, every single holiday and we always paired it with chili and soups.

Why keto cornbread? Because this recipe is a way to ditch all of those carbs. You will love pairing this with my Keto Low-Carb Chili. You can even use this recipe to make dressing or stuffing, which is plentiful at Thanksgiving and during the holidays.

How to Make Keto Low Carb Cornbread

  1. Standard baking tactics apply here. You will need to combine your dry ingredients separate from the wet ingredients. Add almond flour, sweetener, and baking powder to a mixing bowl.
  2. Combine the eggs and butter in a separate bowl.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir to form cornbread mix.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat and grease the pan with butter.
  5. When hot add the batter and smooth.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 20 minutes.

How Many Carbs Are in Keto Cornbread?

If you serve this cornbread with 8 generous slices, each slice has 3 net carbs. Feel free to slice it up smaller to adjust the macros.

Is Cornmeal OK for the Keto Diet?

Cornmeal has carbs and isn’t great for ketosis or a ketogenic lifestyle. Almond flour is substituted in this recipe and works great.

Do You Have to Use a Cast Iron Skillet?

No, but traditional cornbread is prepared using a cast iron. A piping hot cast iron skillet will produce cornbread with crisp edges, which is a staple in southern style cornbread.

How to Clean a Cast Iron Skillet

I like to just use kosher salt, water, and dry cloth. Do not soak the skillet. You can read more about How to Clean a Cast Iron here.

How to Store Cornbread

Cover and store the cornbread in the fridge for up to 4 days. It is best served warm.

Can You Substitute Coconut Flour For Almond Flour?

Coconut flour and almond flour do not have a 1:1 ratio. Coconut flour is a lot more dry, you will not be able to do a 1:1 swap in this recipe.

Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 8
Calories 220kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Optional Sweetener If you like sweet cornbread use 1/2 cup. If you like a hint of sweetness use 1/4 cup. Omit sweetener if you don't want sweetened cornbread.
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, measured solid
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter, measured solid to grease the pan

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the almond flour, sweetener, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine the melted butter and eggs in a smaller separate bowl. Beat the eggs and mix well.
  • Add the butter and egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir.
  • Because I used a wedge pan, I transferred the batter to a cup with a spout for an easy pour into the skillet.
  • Place a cast iron skillet (I used my favorite cast iron cornbread wedge skillet) on the stove on medium-high heat. Add the 1 tablespoon of butter and ensure the pan is fully greased. Adding the cornbread to a hot cast iron skillet will result in cornbread with crispy edges. This is optional, but is the traditional way of making cornbread.
  • When the pan is hot and sizzling, pour the cornbread mix in the skillet and smooth the top with a silicone spoon. Transfer to skillet to the preheated oven.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick returns clean. Mine was ready right at 20 minutes.
  • Cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Notes

  • You can also use a 10.25 cast iron skillet in this recipe.
  • If you elect not to use a cast iron, you can use an 8×8 baking dish.
  • You can also make these as cornbread muffins if you wish.
  • You can slice the cornbread into smaller portions to adjust the macros and serving size.

This was the best Keto Corn bread I have ever had. It was soooo awesome. High suggest you make this. Also with the left over. Reheat it put butter and drizzle honey on it as a sweet treat. So good!

My husband and I made this cornbread recipe tonight with our chili and tortilla soup. We doubled the recipe and it came out great. We absolutely loved it. We are already talking about eating it again soon! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting cornbread without all the carbs and calories.

I’ve tried a few other keto cornbread recipes but I think this one might be my favorite. The texture came out perfect and using your tip of buttering the cast iron and getting it very hot, the crust came out crispy. Thanks for a great recipe and cooking tip!
