Coconut Flour Corn Bread!

I have always had a thing for comfort foods, especially in the cold seasons. Now it is May 3rd… but it’s still pretty chilly in Illinois.  While I’m patiently waiting for summer weather, I am still embracing my cold weather favorites.

When it comes to comfort foods, you can’t go wrong with cornbread!

Tonight I recreated this favorite with a healthier lighter twist that is simply delicious!
