Yum, love cornbread, and this spinach cornbread sounds like a great savory cornbread. Never thought of adding spinach, a definite inspiration!

I think I will use most whole wheat flour, 3 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter, and low-fat milk or soy milk. Maybe a tiny bit jalapenos to give some zing :)

Ha Ha!! ..I'm amazed at how we sometimes think alike!! ..I did use jalapenos in the recipe but that was just for me!! ...and yes it does give it some zing and heat!! ..left a little seeds in for myself!! ..didn't have to share with the grandkids on this one!! ..But if you take out the seeds the flavor will be great and no heat!! Enjoy!!
