Healthy Cornbread

healthy cornbreadIf you’re concerned about calories, you don’t have to rule out baked goods entirely. This week’s Health-e-Recipe for Soft Cornbread with Black Beans is a great example of low-fat, healthful baking.

For starters, stone-ground yellow cornmeal is a whole grain. Eating whole grains — at least 3 servings per day — provides more cancer-fighting fiber and phytochemicals than are found in refined grains. This recipe uses whole-wheat pastry flour as well. If you can’t find low-fat buttermilk, you can substitute an equal amount of plain, low-fat yogurt.

The onion, chile peppers, whole corn kernels and black beans make this recipe unusual — and give it folate from the beans and other compounds from the peppers and corn to bolster its healthy ingredients even more. Not to mention mouth-watering flavor.
