This collection of keto cornbread recipes uses no corn, cornmeal, baby corn, or grains for a true keto-friendly cornbread option.
Our low-carb cornbread recipes use almond or coconut flour in place of cornmeal.
If you’re looking for gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb cornbread recipes, then you’ve come to the right place.
These keto cornbread recipes offer delicious alternatives to traditional cornbread. Plus, they are all easy to make.
With only a few basic ingredients, you can create a mock cornbread recipe that can pass for the real thing. All our recipes use almond flour or coconut flour to replace cornmeal.
Keto Cornbread Recipes
The use of both almond or coconut flour in place of cornmeal works really well and will fool your taste buds into thinking you’re having the real thing.
Part of the reason they work so well is that my recipes treat these alternative flours as if they were cornmeal.
One of the ways I mimic the flavor of cornbread is to bake keto cornbread recipes in a cast-iron skillet. This is because a cast-iron skillet retains heat very well and creates the perfect crust.
This list includes some recipes that combine keto chili with a low-carb cornbread topping, like our keto tamale pie, which features all the Southwestern flavors of a traditional tamale pie minus the high carbs.
In this recipe, we combine a chunky keto chili with a low-carb cornbread topping for a complete Tex-Mex meal.
I also have a keto chicken chili cornbread casserole that combines a quick keto chicken chili with a layer of low-carb cornbread. It’s one complete, easy skillet meal. In this case, the cornbread topping uses coconut flour as a nut-free option.
After several requests for a coconut flour cornbread option, I also created keto cornbread recipes that are made with coconut flour.
This meant that I was now able to create recipes that give people with nut allergies a delicious alternative.
Not only are they nut-free recipes, but the use of coconut flour makes these keto cornbread recipes extra low in carbs. Plus, the use of coconut flour makes it more economical than the recipes that use nut flour.
Best Keto Cornbread Extract
Using a keto cornbread extract simply amplifies the flavor of “corn” in these cornbread recipes. It’s a way to further fool your tastebuds.
The use of corn extract is really effective in getting the flavor of cornbread without the use of any corn.
OOOflavors cornbread flavored concentrate has managed to create a cornbread extract that has zero calories, zero sugar, and zero carbs.
Since it’s a highly concentrated extract, a tiny amount is all you need to get the flavor of corn.
I recommend using 3–4 drops in this recipe to see if it elevates the flavor further.

Some tips to consider when making any of our keto cornbread recipes are the quality of ingredients you use. From the cooking utensils to the spices you use, it makes a difference in the final product.
Favorite Baking Tools
Probably one of my favorite items to use when cooking keto cornbread recipes is a cast-iron skillet. It truly makes a big difference when baking items that are low in carbs.
In my experience, using a cast-iron skillet helps mimic the texture of a traditional recipe.
You’ll find that I refer to my cast-iron skillet often because I love how well low-carb cornbread bakes in it. The high heat that the skillet maintains allows for your keto cornbread to develop a crust that rivals traditional cornbread.
I assure you that it’s an investment you will enjoy for years.
The only time I do not use a cast-iron skillet in these recipes is when the recipe is a muffin or a certain casserole dish.
I sure hope you will give any of our recipes a try. Once you do, make sure you remember to tag us on Instagram and Facebook. It’s what keeps me encouraged to keep sharing and perfecting my recipes for you.
