It doesn’t have to be corny!

Can it really be that Thanksgiving is really just around the corner????! Well, seems it is true. I decided to post a low carb cornbread replacement, in view of the up-coming holidays. If you make a bread stuffing you can use any of the many available bread recipes as a base for your stuffing. But, if you are from our family…well, the only stuffing is cornbread stuffing. So, a substitute mock cornbread base was a necessity!

This is a spin off of one that I found off of the internet, that I have long since lost the link to. So, I apologize to whomever inspired my version, as normally I would give you credit.

Before, I get to the recipe for today, I wanted to let you all in on some exciting news. CJOK Kitchen, LLC is now a thing! I am starting out as a cottage kitchen, so, my mixes will only be available in Florida. I will be selling them and delivering them or you can pick them up if you live in the Central Florida area. I am sorry until I get things out of the cottage kitchen phase I am not allowed to mail them, nor sell them out of state (maybe a great excuse to visit Orlando?). I will however, be selling at our local farmer’s market hopefully, by December.

You can pre-order mixes that you want by contacting me through e-mail at You can also email me and let me know if you would be interested in ordering them, if it gets to the point that I can ship.

Currently I have 4 mixes:

Low Carb Brown Bread Mix (makes about 18 slice loaf, in microwave or conventional oven)- $5.79/mix or $5.75 if you buy 4 or more

Low Carb Chocolate Cake Mix (makes 9″ cake, microwave or conventional oven)-$6.79/mix or $6.75 if you buy 4 or more

Low Carb Muffin/Cupcake Mix (makes 12 muffins or cupcakes)-$6.79/mix or $6.75 if you buy 4 or more

Low Carb Pancake/Waffle Mix (1 lb 12 oz package) $16.69/bag

I am developing a few other mixes that may be added in the future, but for now, I will be sticking to these.

I am a boot-strapping start-up so, if you email ahead with how many you want I will be sure to have them ready for you. Wish me luck on this adventure. If things take off enough, phase 2 will be to contract a commercial packaging facility or leasing a commercial kitchen. At that point I will be able to make them available to ship.

So now that I am finished with the blah blah blah…lol here is the recipe:

  4. Add eggs and mix on high until batter is smooth

  1. Lucky me. I’ve tasted all these mixes and they are wonderful. I’m so excited because I can always have a real good bread on hand that I can make up much quicker than mixing the ingredients together myself. Thank you Darla for making my life easier. Not sure if I can keep chocolate cake around all the time since my husband eats it up so fast!
