All the flavors of cornbread in a cookie form. These cornbread cookies allow you to have cookies for dinner anytime you want!

Cornbread Cookies

Cookies for dinner?! Yes, please!

Sometimes you just need a big bowl of comfort food and a cookie. Because what could be better than a cookie for dinner.

This recipe is my family’s new favorite way to eat cornbread. It is all the flavors of cornbread in the form of a cookie.

I first heard about cornbread cookies from my mom. I instantly knew that they were something I needed to try. There was one problem though. Most of the recipes that I saw contained a cornbread mix. Now I know a lot of people love that famous box of cornbread mix. I understand that. It is easy and delicious.

However, I prefer homemade when I can. I was also looking for something that was easy to make gluten free so that my whole family could enjoy them.

So I did what I do when it comes to most recipes and I came up with my own homemade version. It took some work, but what I came up with is delicious! It is also very easy to make gluten free if you need a gluten free version.

Cornbread Cookies

These really are like cornbread in the form of a cookie. They are a light and fluffy cookie, but still a cookie. And what kid wouldn’t love the idea of eating cookies for dinner.

Cornbread cookies are perfect with a bowl of chili or soup. We had them last night with my beanless chili. My son loves to put honey on these to make them a little sweeter. No matter how you eat them they are delicious!

  1. Lynn, my mom came for lunch today and we enjoyed these with homemade soup. They were wonderful! Easier to make than corn muffins or cornbread and easier clean-up as far as baking pan, too. (I used parchment paper.) I used my Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free Flour Mix and added a little xanthan gum (as that’s not in my mix). I will definitely be making these again. Thanks so much for this recipe, dear!


    • I am so glad that you enjoyed them! I have only made this recipe with the Bob’s Blend so I am glad to know it worked with other gf flours.
