Healthy Honey Cornbread

Who doesn’t love a slice of hot cornbread with a bowl of chili in the fall and winter months?  The honey gives it just enough sweetness.  It is difficult to stop at just one slice, but because it’s more filling with the higher protein and fiber content, I almost could!  This cornbread also has a sturdy crust for dipping into soup, but a soft and chewy center.
