Cornbread Recipe

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!

Cornbread Recipe

– 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.

Entire recipe makes 8 servings
Serving size is 1 square
Each serving = 3 Points

    I made this a few days ago and it turned out great, thanks for sharing.

  2. I know this is an older recipe but it would be great to have a note that this is old points. I made it only to find out its 5 points. I could have just made the stuff from the box much easier.

  3. I put the ingredients in the etools recipe builder and got 5 PPV for a serving if cut into 8.  If cut into 12 pieces then its 3 PPV.  

  4. Ooops. I calculated wrong (I used a different online calculator than I am used to and the categories were switched).

    It is actually 3.5 points/serving (28 pts for the whole recipe).

  5. FYI, I calculated the points plus amount. There are 25 points plus in the entire recipe, so it’s 3.125 points plus (roughly 3).

    From my calculations:
    11 g fat; 211.3 g carbs; 14.9 fiber; 35.1 protein


  6. Will you be changing the points totals on your previously posted recipes? I hope you will eventually. I know it's a big chore!

    • I may be, but it will take a LOT of time. For most of those recipes, I don't have the nutritional stats, only the Points value. Grrr. But i will be posting lots of new recipes with the Points Plus Values!
