I work in the kitchen in a long term care facility. I see many different dishes that I would like to recreate, so that I can eat them. Every few weeks we serve beef chili and corn bread. Although I have been making beef chili and vegetarian chili for years, I had never made corn bread. Finally a few weeks ago, I decided to make my own corn bread and with a few tweaks here and there i am very happy with it.

Who doesn’t love to be able to dip some sort of bread into their chili. I know I do.

    • Thanks Elise! Yes having to bake without eggs has been more challenging but workable. I have even more related recipes in my Egg Free Baking section.

  1. I didn’t know you worked in a kitchen. How fun to be able to cook for others.
    And this sounds awesomely delicious! I love that it is gluten-free =) I would enjoy this with a big bowl of chili.
    Thank you so much for sharing it over at Healthy Vegan Fridays. Your recipe is being featured this week!
    I have pinned this to our Pinterest Board.

    • It’s really not much in the way of cooking. The food comes in prepared. It’s mostly just heating rather than cooking.
      Thanks for featuring my corn bread! It is great with chili!

  2. Hi Sandi, Do you think this would work swapping applesauce for the coconut oil? Or maybe pumpkin? I eat low-fat to help with breast pain, but I’m always looking for a great cornbread recipe!
