The Best Gluten-free Bread Recipe (You'll Never Buy Frozen GF Bread Again) by Jan Mostrom

The Best Gluten-free Bread Recipe (You'll Never Buy Frozen GF Bread Again)

I'm so excited to share this bread recipe with my gluten-free friends. I'm a sourdough bread maker and I've tried to make a gluten-free starter but it just doesn't turn out for me. Then I found this gluten-free bread recipe – and it's amazing.

My GF friends rave about this delicious bread, and it's so simple to make. I first made it in a food processor and it was great. One of my friends said she didn't have a processor, so I tried it with my stand mixer and it turned out just as well. What's really fun is coming up with new things to add into it like seeds, nuts and herbs. For an extra fun snack, you also could put chunks of pepper-jack cheese, or make it a sweet bread by topping with an apple crumb mixture.

I've outlined the base recipe here, but feel free to make it your own and try different versions. As with all homemade breads, it's amazing warm just out of the oven! Here are the simple ingredients you'll want to have on had to make it: gluten-free flour, ground flax seed, psyllium husk powder, quick rise yeast, sea salt, water, olive oil, a sweetener, apple cider vinegar, egg whites and any optional ingredients like seeds, nuts or herbs.

Now let's get to baking. You won't regret it!

Recipe Notes

  • This recipe only works with quick rise yeast!
  • The recipe works exactly the same for a food processor or with a paddle mixer.
  • A kitchen thermometer works both for the water and bread temperature.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large 12-cup food processor bowl or stand mixer bowl, add all the dry ingredients and gently mix or pulse to combine.
  2. Add water, olive oil, maple syrup or other sweetener, apple cider vinegar and egg whites (in that order). Mix until it becomes a sticky dough. Make sure to scrape down the sides so all the ingredients are combined.
  3. If you want to add anything into the dough, add it and gently mix or pulse to combine. Reserve a bit to sprinkle on the top.
  4. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Lightly oil a large loaf pan and scrape the dough into the pan. (Feel free to sprinkle your toppings on here now as well.)
  5. Cover with a damp kitchen towel. When oven is preheated, TURN IT OFF and place the dough inside the oven to rise for about 1 hour.
  6. After an hour, remove the dough from the oven and turn the oven to 375 degrees F.
  7. Bake the dough for about 45 to 50 minutes until the loaf is golden brown and temperature inside the bottom of the loaf is 205 degrees.
  8. Remove the loaf and cool for 10 to 30 minutes on a wire rack. Loosen the sides and remove from pan and serve warm with butter. Enjoy!
