Abby's Healthy Corn Bread

Introduction

This is the cornbread recipe found on the box of Quaker corn meal, but with a healthy twist. I use applesauce instead of oil and add 1/4 c. of wheat flour (removing 1/4 c. white flour).

    I love the substitution of applesauce for oil. I've done this with cakes, but never thought of it in cornbread. Great one! - 2/3/10

    After reading from some of the comments that this was dry, I added 1/3 c. applesauce instead of 1/4 c. It came out very moist, fluffy, and surprisingly sweet. I absolutely loved it! Thanks! - 11/16/11

    This was an awesome recipe. I made it last night with our chili and it was tender, sweet and yummy! Even our dog couldn't get enough! She sneaked almost half the pan before we could stop her! - 2/28/09

  • I used 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce as I had an abundance of it with nothing to use it for, when I ran across this recipe just in time to plan it to go with a dinner of Diet Coke sloppy joes. Yum!! Not sure how the sub affects nutrition, but it was great! I used a 9x13 pan to bake. - 10/31/13

  • I'm all about eating healthy but it is hard to find a great tasting, healthy corn bread recipe that is as tasty and moist as the unhealthy recipe version. All I could taste was the wheat flour..blah. I wouldn't make this recipe again. - 10/9/12

  • Very dense, moist corn bread. I used 1/3-1/2 cup applesauce. It has a subtle sweetness and a mild corn flavor. Very good with chili! - 9/15/12

  • Definitely not a 9x13 size, but I didn't realize that until after I had put the batter in the pan. I think to feed a family, this recipe should definitely be doubled. I used all whole wheat flour though, and that is pretty tasty.

    (I have a thing against white flour.) - 1/16/11

  • I used wheat pastry flour and used 1/2 cup of it and 3/4 cup of white flour. The applesauce gives the bread just a bit of sweetness. My hubby liked this better than regular cornbread mixes we used to make. I think this will be our regular now! - 10/31/10

    Welll, the recipe didn't say what size pan to use. Had I used the right sized pan, it might have been better! - 5/3/09
