Author Notes

Day 5 exploring sourdough discards. Yum...jalapeno cornbread. I would add cheese, but I had no vegan cheese. Of course, if you aren't keeping it vegan, feel free to add some cheese. If you like spicy, don't remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeno. If you like things a little milder, use half and remove the seeds and membranes. You can also substitute up to 1/4 cup whole wheat for 1/4 cup all-purpose flour. Maple syrup, brown rice syrup would works well for the agave syrup. Melted vegan or regular butter , or even olive oil or a neutral oil can be used in place of the coconut oil. —weshook
