Almond Flour Paleo "Corn" Bread

My husband has been missing Cornbread with his chili for about a year now.  He is allergic to corn as well as some other things.  I finally came across an easy enough recipe that promised a "cornbread" look-a-like...or I guess I should call it a "cornbread" taste-a-like!  Plus, I wanted to try this recipe because it is Paleo...for me.  I have been wanting to try baking something with Almond Flour lately and this recipe was my first using it.  It was super simple, but I had to change the baking temp. because my oven was just not cooking it through using the temp. and time from the original recipe...which can be found HERE.  I may use a tad less honey next time and see how it turns out.  It is great as is, but it probably doesn't have to be as sweet.

Almond Flour Paleo "Corn" Bread
Here is what you need:
1 1/2 cups Almond Meal/Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup raw honey
4 eggs

I wanted to have farm fresh eggs all cute with brown shells...because my dad has 50 or so laying hens, but he hasn't given me any eggs in a while.....boo! 

Combine all the ingredients with an electric mixer until there are no lumps.  Pour into a greased baking dish or muffin cups.  I used a small round glass dish.  Cook in a 320 - 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 min.  The original recipe said to cook for 15 min., but my Almond "Corn" bread was nowhere near done at that time.  

Even the batter resembled cornbread!! :)

It's finally done and we couldn't wait to give it a try!

I also made Paleo Chili to go with our Faux Cornbread! :)

It's low-carb, and allergy-friendly too...so if you give it a try...let me know! :)

I made this a couple days ago. So good! Taste surprisingly close to cornbread. I will be making this again and again.
