  • oven


  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup oat flour can also use whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 400 °F (205° C).
  • In a small bowl, add the milk and apple cider vinegar. Stir and let sit to allow the milk to curdle.
  • In a medium bowl, add all of the dry ingredients (cornmeal, oat flour, baking powder and salt) and mix well to combine.
  • Pour the milk and vinegar mixture into the dry mixture and add the applesauce and maple syrup. Stir well until everything is evenly incorporated.
  • Pour the batter into an 8x8 inch pan lined with parchment paper, and place in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Poke it with a toothpick to determine if it needs longer.
  • Once done, let cool for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve warm!


No oat flour? Make your own by grinding rolled oats in a food processor or blender. If not gluten-free, whole wheat flour works well too.
Store leftovers in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days or the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Freeze for longer.
