This vegan blueberry cornbread rises so beautifully, with a golden crisp crust bursting with berries and sweet summer corn kernels.

Chewy, hearty, and dense—this isn’t your average slice of bread! Packed with 9 grams protein and more than 7 grams fiber per slice, this bread will keep you going for hours and is a healthier alternative to store-bought bread. Since it’s a staple in our kitchen, I make a double batch every week. Feel free to play around with the herbs and spices as you see fit! Gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free, soy-free, sugar-free option!
