After hosting my cast iron skillet giveaway I noticed how many people said they wanted to make corn bread in their cast iron and I thought it would be a great idea to post my gluten free corn bread recipe. Most corn bread recipes require a little wheat flour because it will crumble with just corn flour, so I decided to make a gluten free version and use coconut flour instead of wheat flour! The corn bread turned out wonderfully. It was moist and firm with a smooth, slightly sweet crunchy crust. It’s delicious slathered with butter!

I also used sprouted corn flour in this recipe as opposed to regular corn flour. I did this because for one it’s organic which means it’s non-GMO and sprouted grains are all around better for you. I’ve talked about the benefits of sprouting before, but I’ll recap:

Many nutritional benefits come from sprouting and soaking grains before consuming them. This was a common traditional practice long ago, but since the development of fast, cheap and convenient foods, it has been almost forgotten. Soaking or sprouting is vital to harness the benefits that grains, legumes and seeds have to offer. It helps to decrease the amount of phytic acid present in grains. Phytic acid, an enzyme inhibitor, blocks the absorption of vitamins and minerals. It can also cause poor digestion and an unhealthy gut. This may explain why many people feel bloated, gassy or intolerant of grains. Some people who believe that they are gluten intolerant actually do quite well with properly sprouted grains. If you do have grain allergies or gluten intolerance please consult your health practitioner before attempting to consume sprouted or soaked grains and do so with caution.

Corn is notoriously difficult to sprout whereas other grains and legumes like rice and lentils are easy to sprout at home. That’s why I buy sprouted corn flour from To Your Health Sprouted Flour. I give myself that little luxury considering the fact that I save money on sprouting and soaking other grains and legumes.
