Type B, miss your cornbread as much as I do? Here's a great alternative that has fooled some of my friends.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type B (2 beneficials)

  • Baked Good

  • 2 cups millet flour (best if fresh ground in a coffee grinder, leave some whole grains for a crunchier bread)
  • 1 cup white or spelt flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder [baking powder recipes]
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne, to taste
  • 14 ounces green chilies
  • 11 ounces pimentos
  • 1/4 cup ghee or melted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk or yogurt
  • 1 minced onion
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg

How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 400*.
  2. In a large bowl combine: millet flour, white or spelt flour, baking powder, salt, chili powder, and cayenne. In a small bowl combine: green chilies, pimentos, ghee or butter, buttermilk or yogurt, onion, cheese and egg.
  3. Mix well and add to dry ingredients.
  4. Pour into a lightly heated iron skillet, oiled with ghee. Bake for 30-45 min. Longer if you like a drier bread. Enjoy
