Comfort Cornbread with Qi'a

What better comfort food than cornbread? And this Qi'a recipe takes comfort food and kicks it up a notch. Healthier, heartier and with a lil' kick in the pants (hotness), this may well become one of your winter "go-to" foods. Perfect paired with soups and stews by the way.



  • 1 tablespoon canola oil or unsalted butter
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup Qi’a Original
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1&1/2 cup hemp or buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon or lemon juice, if you're not using buttermilk
  • 2 small jalapeños, seeded and minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Put the butter into a 9-inch cast iron skillet. Place the skillet in the oven while it preheats.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, Qi’a, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to blend, making sure you break up any lumps in the baking soda or baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, milk, lemon juice and jalapeños.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour in the wet ingredients and using a rubber spatula, stir together lightly until just blended, don’t over mix.
  5. Remove the hot skillet from the oven and using a pastry brush, distribute the butter or oil all over the skillet. Scrape the batter into the skillet and place back in the oven. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
