So I organized our basement freezer and found out we had lots to work with-enough food for maybe a month or two. I am a bit of a food hoarder, I confess, and the freezer clearly demonstrates this.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, I asked my good friend (Google) for some suggestions, and here is what I found:
A corn bread recipe using masa harina instead of cornmeal!!
Here are the ingredients, but click on the link for the directions. I think the butter really makes the difference. Cornbread and cookie recipes must have butter (or do they?)!!
A Healthier Organic Corn Bread Recipe (I don't think it should be called organic, as none of the ingredients called for are organic!...just sayin!)
1 1/2 cup masa harina flour
1/2 cup spelt flour, or other flour of choice, (with the exception of coconut flour, it won't work in this recipe) ....I used white whole wheat
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp unrefined sea salt...I used kosher salt
1/4 cup raw honey ...I used maple syrup
1 tbsp sucanat ...or regular sugar
1 1/4 cup whole milk or coconut milk ...I used skim milk
1/4 cup grass fed butter, softened....my butter did not come from grass fed cows :(
|This is how I served it up!! with pulled pork tenderloin, shredded cheese and a tiny dollop of real sour cream! |
Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Bran Cookies (adapted from cdkitchen)3/4 cup canola oil..I used avocado oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cup oat bran
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup dark or bittersweet chocolate chips...I only had mini chocolate chips to work with

I really like making other bloggers recipes! the recipes are already tested, so less chance of a mess for me!
