About this Recipe

Over the years, I’ve mucked with all kinds of mock cornbread recipes in an attempt to get something that acts like cornbread and tastes good. This is the result of all those years of tweaking. =)

It may NOT be a as low-carb as you’d like if you’re a “Total Carb”er but 3 grams of net carbs isn’t too bad. This is the cornbread that I use as the base for my Thanksgiving dressing (or stuffing.)


  • 1/2 cup unflavored protein powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp sweetener of choice


  • Quest Nutrition Multi-Purpose is my general protein powder of choice for baking.
  • Use erythritol, or monkfruit, or sucralose – whatever works for you, just be sure to adjust amounts for your choice. You may need a smidge more or less. I use Pyure, or Lakanto.
