{Nourish} Maple Hazelnut Cornbread

Maple Hazelnut CornbreadA worthwhile accident turned comfort food…That’s how this cornbread recipe came to be. I was given a beautiful bag of local heirloom cornmeal a few months back and it has been taunting me ever since. For whatever reason, I haven’t been compelled to use it even though it glares at me each and every time I open that cabinet door. Then, on Thanksgiving morning (because I didn’t  have enough to cook), I literally woke up determined to add cornbread to our holiday spread and that is how this Maple Hazelnut Cornbread recipe came to be.

Less time calls for healthy breakfast options that are appealing and easy to eat on the fly. This baked oatmeal muffin is exactly that and even better, it is just as appealing to us parents as you only need one bowl and a few ingredients. You might even have enough left over to freeze.

Hazelnut Lemon Wild Blueberry CakeCake for breakfast makes everything better, right? We think so and that is why I whipped up a batch of my favorite gluten-free quick bread this week! We are still adjusting to our new kindergarten schedule. Wow, the hour we lost each morning makes a huge difference in our routine. I am setting an alarm clock for the first time since Hudson was born and let me tell you, I would far rather wake up to his voice and snuggles than even the sweetest of sounds my phone can muster. And, as you can imagine, breakfast is a bit more rushed than it used to be so creativity and planning have become a priority. A variation of this bread has been a staple in our house for a year or so and it has become the perfect make-ahead breakfast item for busy mornings and we can all feel good about eating it plus, Hudson thinks it’s cake so he gobbles it up without complaint!
