Healthy Vegan Cornbread

Indisputable fact: cornbread is the best bread.

You might think that cutting out butter and eggs would leave any cornbread recipe dry and flat.  However, this recipe is anything but dry and amazingly, it rose higher than I had expected.  Like most of my kitchen creations, this was a total experiment. My dad saw it and said, “Oh, so we’re having corn cake for dinner?” He wasn’t too far off.  This cornbread had just the right amount of sweetness without the scary amount of sugar that most recipes call for.  I think the secret is in the grits.
