Blissful Garlic & Onion Skillet Cornbread

Another comfort food favorite of ours, this corn bread was another great inspiration from Diana Keuilian's book: The Recipe Hacker. We've modified it for our nightshade free diet, but it is truly a wonderful dish especially served warm.

For the bread topping

  • 3 oz Red Onion diced or sliced
  • 1 tbsp Ground black pepper Coarse ground
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 3 cloves Garlic

Dry Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/3 cup Arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 cup Coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric, ground

Wet Ingredients

  • 4 eggs Large Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Coconut Milk
  • 2 tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 3 tbsp Local Raw Honey


  • Preheat the oven to 425F
  • Heat the olive oil in a small skillet. Fry the onions and garlic until soft and slightly brown at the edges, then remove from the heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • In another smaller bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients, using a whisk or fork, whisk until fully combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until you have a smooth batter. I found a hand whisk gave me the smoothest results, with the least effort.
  • Lightly oil an 9" x 9" square (or any shape you like) pan or skillet.
  • Place the onions garlic and some fresh coarse ground black pepper on the bottom of the pan. Pour the bread mix on top and smooth out
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, it should look golden on top when done.
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes (although again this takes a tremendous amount of willpower) and then turn it out onto a serving plate or chopping board. The onions/garlic etc should now be the top of the "corn-bread". Cut, serve and ideally eat whilst still warm.


Before we moved to a nightshade free diet, we did made this dish with the Jalapenos and it's amazing, so if you can have nightshades, we recommend adding 4 fresh Jalapeno peppers to replace the onion.
