  • Plant-based milk — I use either almond milk or soy milk. You can use any of your favorite plant-based milks.
  • Flax eggs — You’ll need two flax eggs for this recipe. Or you can substitute chia seed eggs.
  • Vegetable oil — Use a neutral oil, like canola oil, or substitute melted vegan butter or applesauce.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Is Jiffy cornbread mix gluten free?

No, Jiffy cornbread mix is not gluten-free as it contains wheat. If you require gluten-free cornbread, you should look for a mix that is gluten-free or make your own from scratch.

What can I use instead of egg in Jiffy cornbread?

You can easily substitute one tablespoon of ground flaxseed combined with 3 tablespoons of water for each egg called for in Jiffy cornbread mixes. However, I also recommend adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil to create the best consistency.

Storage Tips

Place leftovers in a sealed container and refrigerate any unused portions. It should last 4 to 5 days in the fridge or up to a month in the freezer.

I specify to use plain plant-based milk, but there have been times when all I had was vanilla-flavored milk and this recipe still came out tasting fine.
If you’re using a muffin pan, reduce cooking time to approximately 18 minutes.

Egg Substitutes

  • Chia egg
  • Vegan plain yogurt — 1/4 cup of yogurt can substitute for one egg.
  • Tofu — You can whip tofu in a blender or food processor and use it as an egg substitute. The same ratio works here, roughy 1/4 cup of whipped tofu can be used for one egg.
  • Aquafaba — Use 3 tablespoons of liquid from a can of chickpeas (referred to as aquafaba) as a substitute for one egg.

    Can I add creamed corn? Would I omit any other ingredients?

      I love this question, Rachel! I haven’t tried that with this recipe, but I definitely want to do it now. Here’s what I would do: Reduce the plant-based milk to 1/3 cup. Add a full can of creamed corn (14.75 ounce can). Leave everything else the same. I think this will make the batter just right. But if it’s too thick, you could add another tablespoon or two of plant-based milk. Let me know how it goes!
