Cooking Time




  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup almond, soy, or cashew milk


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Prepare the flax egg by combining ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons water. Stir and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients, including cranberries and rosemary.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together all wet ingredients, including the flax egg.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan or a muffin tin. Pour batter into the baking pan.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. After 20 minutes, check to make sure it is done by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it doesn't come out clean, bake for another 5 minutes.
