Your brain is your greatest resource—use it by design to help you learn how to stay healthier and younger for longer!

—Arlene R. Taylor PhD

One day, while I was relaxing and writing up in the mountains of North Carolina, my friend Mary served corn dodgers with lunch. I really enjoyed both the taste and the crispy crunch—especially since they were baked and not fried. They have become a favorite of mine because they are fast and easy and quite versatile.


  • 1 cup cornmeal, fine grind
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

Variation:  If you want more of a Southwest taste add 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. If you want more of a Mediterranean taste, add 1/8 tsp of turmeric. If you want a more herbal taste, add 1/8 tsp parsley flakes or another favorite herb. If you love onions, add 1 Tbsp dried minced onion to the boiling water and coconut oil.


Place cornmeal and sea salt in a bowl. Mix well.

Mix coconut oil in one cup boiling water. Pour boiling water/oil into the cornmeal/salt, stirring constantly with a fork or whisk.


Drop 12 small mounds of the batter onto a cookie sheet sprayed with coconut oil. Using a fork, mash the mounds until very thin.

Place cookie sheet in an oven preheated to 400° F and bake for 30 minutes until crisp and browned.


Remove from the oven. Eat plain or serve with hummus or salsa or a dab of honey or maple syrup.
