This is a moist and savory homemade Jalapeno Vegan Cornbread with a slight sweetness that makes it addictive! It’s so good, we guarantee you won’t have any left at the end of the meal.


Units Scale
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp of water) OR one beaten egg (large). See Note 2
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup medium cornmeal
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup refined coconut oil at room temperature or vegan butter. See note 3
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed or avocado oil ( or any other neutral-tasting oil)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup plain unsweetened non-dairy yogurt (see note 1)
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 jalapenos, diced small


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease an 8" cast iron pan or an 8x8 baking pan
  2. In a small bowl, combine the ground flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of water to make the flax egg
  3. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside
  4. In a large bowl, beat the vegan butter or coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and maple syrup at medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes
  5. Add the yogurt, soaked flax seeds (or beaten egg). Mix for a couple of minutes until well combined (the mixture will look curdled)
  6. Reduce the speed and add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined (do not overmix).
  7. Using a wooden spoon, gently fold the corn and jalapeños into cornbread batter. Pour into the cast iron pan or baking pan and bake at 400F for 35 minutes


  1. If you don't have vegan yogurt you may use 3/4 cup of warm plant-based milk, but the texture and the flavor of the vegan cornbread will not be the same. 
  2. We've tested the recipe with egg and flax egg and we like it better with the flax egg.
  3. We like this cornbread recipe better when made with coconut oil vs vegan butter.
