Healthified Corn Bread

Continuing in the process of "healtifying" favorite recipes.  I tweaked the corn bread recipe on the back of the plain corn meal package.  Nutritional information is at the bottom of the post to compare conventional preparation vs. my healthified version.

Healthified Corn Bread

1 cup corn meal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp oil or melted butter
2 Tbsp ground flax

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix wet ingredients in a smaller bowl, and add to dry ingredients, stirring until combined.  Do not overmix.  Pour into a greased 8x8 pan.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done.  Makes 12 servings.
