Tasty cornbread recipes are pretty easy to come by. But tasty low calorie ones aren’t always so easy. The ones I did try were bland or dry and just didn’t make the cut. So, after some experimentation, I managed to come up with an easy cornbread recipe that tastes great and has just a 3 Points per serving. And though it’s not an official Weight Watchers Corn Bread Recipe, anyone who is following the Weight Watchers Program will appreciate this low calorie version!
– 1 cup uncooked cornmeal, yellow
– 1 14oz can of creamed corn
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 tsp baking soda
– 2 packets of Splenda sweetener
– 1 tsp table salt
– 1/2 cup reduced fat buttermilk
– 2 large egg whites
– 2 tsp corn oil
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat an 8-inch square cake pan with non-fat cooking spray (I prefer the butter flavored kind).
Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, Splenda, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Mix well with a fork and set aside. Combine creamed corn, buttermilk, egg whites and oil in a medium bowl; mix until blended. Fold mixture into dry ingredients and blend. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely. Cut into 8 squares.
