Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease an 8-by-8-inch square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the almond milk and flaxseed meal. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a small bowl, whisk together the melted shortening, almond milk-flaxseed mixture, yogurt, and agave nectar. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
