5 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1¼ cups whole-grain cornmeal
¾ cup white whole-wheat flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup unsweetened plain soymilk
3 tablespoons avocado oil or canola oil
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.
Combine water and flaxseed meal in a small bowl. Let stand until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk soymilk, oil and the reserved flaxseed mixture in another medium bowl; add to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Transfer batter to the baking dish, spreading evenly. Bake until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
