Finding gluten-free bakery goods that are vegan AND tastes good can be tough. Like I mentioned in my Vegan Gluten Free Cake Recipe, vegan, gluten-free baking can be tricky. But once you know the technique, the possibilities are endless!

This homemade gluten free bread is the perfect alternative for those who cannot tolerate much gluten in their diet. No more eating that horrible frozen gluten-free bread, you purchase from the store that breaks apart as soon as you thaw it out!

WHAT TYPE OF GLUTEN-FREE FLOUR TO USE?

You can use just about any gluten-free flour you want. The recipe below I made my own all-purpose gluten-free flour mix using two based gluten-free flours of :

  • Sorghum Flour
  • Millet Flour

You can also make this mix with the two base flours being brown rice flour and oat flour as I have tried that, and it works well.

If you choose to use a store-bought brand, make sure that it has potato starch as the ingredient! All gluten-free flours aren’t created equal, so you want to make sure this ingredient is in there as it’s crucial for vegan, gluten-free baking.

Potato starch acts as an egg in that it lightens the texture of gluten-free baked goods and give them more of an airy texture.

XANTHAM GUM: THE CRUCIAL INGREDIENT

This vegan gluten-free bread calls for Xantham Gum.

What exactly is Xanthan Gum? It is a plant-based thickening and stabilizing agent. It is named for the bacteria, “Xanthomonas campestris,” and has several powerful properties; the most important in baking is that it mimics gluten.

Gluten is what makes dough “doughy “, elastic, and helps hold the bread together. So without gluten, we need a replacement. Xantham Gum is that replacement.

I purchase mine from Whole Foods but have seen it now in local grocery stores and even Walmart! Of course, you can always buy it online on Amazon.

How to Make Gluten Free Dairy free Bread

1. Mix the Ingredients

  • Preheat the oven to 200 F.
  • Mix the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl
  • Mix the water & coconut oil in another bowl
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix. You can use a stand mixer, a hand mixer, or a large spoon. Pour dough into the greased bread pan.

2. Let the Bread Rise & Bake

  • Cover the dough with a clean towel. Turn the oven OFF and place the dough inside. Let the dough rise.
  • Remove the dough from the oven. Remove the towel from the bread pan. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Once hot, place the dough in the oven and bake. Cover the bread with foil if it becomes too brown before the inside is fully cooked.
  • Spread coconut oil or vegan butter on the top of the fully cooked bread while hot. Let the bread completely cool, slice, and serve.

HEALTH BENEFITS:

Eating a gluten-free diet has significant benefits! It turns out you don’t need to have Celiac Disease to have issues with gluten.  

 Tons of people experience depression when eating a diet containing gluten.  Plenty of people who tested negative for Celiac Disease still cut out gluten because they felt so much better without it.

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings 12 slices
Calories 342 kcal

Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil , melt before measuring
  • 1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons warm water

Gluten Free Flour Mix

  • 1 1/2 cups millet flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 1 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon xantham gum

Instructions

  1. Grease and dust an 8×4 loaf pan with a small spoonful of coconut oil & sprinkle of gluten free flour. Heat oven to 200 degrees F.

  2. Combine gluten free flour, salt, sugar, and dry yeast in a medium sized bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

  3. In mixing bowl, combine the coconut oil and warm water together and then add the dry ingredients. Mix on high for 2 minutes, this activates the yeast. It should resemble a thicker cake batter. You can use a spoon if you don't have an electric mixer.

  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and cover with a tea towel. Turn OFF the oven and set the covered bread in the warm oven to rise. Carefully shut the oven door.
  5. The bread will take about 30 min. to rise to just below the top of the pan. Take the bread out carefully and set aside. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

  6. Place bread in preheated oven and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 45 minutes. Tent tinfoil over the bread, if needed, to prevent the crust from darkening too much.

  7. Test the bread with a toothpick. After you’ve removed the bread from the oven, immediately rub the top with coconut oil. Remove loaf from the pan to cool.

  8. Let cool completely before cutting. This makes a big difference on how well it will slice and stay together.

Gluten Free Flour Mix

  1. Mix everything in a bowl. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.

    • It may not be like that for everyone, but if you notice symptoms then I would try eating gluten free to see if there is an improvement!

  • I’m glad you found a solution at your problem 🙂 and yes, the food that we eat is the biggest controller of our body, so we should eat consciously!

  • Oh-oh feel sorry about that – I am like that too! Too much of eating cake will make me sad because of a headache and a chest pain. I am not allowed to eat too much of ice cream too!

    Good thing you are okay..well, we are okay because we positively make a great move to have an alternative food to make as more healthy and free!

  • I have been looking for a good gluten Free bread recipe this looks great I’m going to give it a go, we have been changing our diet for a few years and this is just another step we haven’t cut gluten out completely but reduced it, same with dairy products. We try to eat as clean as we can. Thank you for the recipe 🙂

    • That’s awesome. I think slowly cutting things out is the best way to go, instead of cutting everything out all at once! I hope you like the recipe!

  • Different people have unsimilar ways of eating their foods. Vegan has its own way to rackle their way of living. This is great for people who are very conscious with their health. Dieting takes a lot of time to settle for me. I love eating and not a vegan. But these foods really can help a lot.

  • It is great that you found the cause of your migraine and depression. I’d say that you just say goodbye to that chocolate cake. I think you need to find a vegan gluten-free chocolate cake.. Your bread looks good, btw.

    • lol, I know I know, it just tastes sooooo good! But I’m too scared to buy it again. I don’t bake desserts very often so I’m on the hunt for a good gluten-free vegan cake that I can buy. Thanks 🙂

  • My son had headaches and some depression. Once we removed the gluten- no more headaches! We try to live gluten-free and eat only whole here with an occasional treat.

  • What a discovery! That took quite a while to figure out as well. I’m glad you finally solved the issue and that you also have a solution for it. It’s so much better to know what you’re dealing with especially when it’s about your health.

  • I would never have thought to link depression, headaches and gluten but I know some foods affect people in different ways

    • Yes, I would have never thought to link those issues with gluten either if I hadn’t eaten that darn cake!

  • I know for sure gluten is not making my journey to eat healthy easier. Being Filipino, gluten is practically a part of our meals. For me, I’m pretty sure gluten is a part of the effect of my current health situation.

  • This is interesting. I never knew about this until I read in your blog. I know of some people who have low tolerance to gluten (they feel something whenever they eat food with gluten) but I never really paid attention to it. I’ve learned something new today, thanks to your post.

  • My sister in law is very conscious about gluten, and here I am I do not know anything about it. Because of her, we get to be more aware of gluten, but I still go ahead and eat those foods. Hehe.

  • I’ve never thought of checking if gluten has been causing any of my problems, but now you got me worrying… maybe I should try to go off gluten and see what happens!

  • Interesting new name for your blog. I’m gonna try out this recipe. Never had a problem with gluten so far though diary gives me an occasional issue. We do make pan breads (roti) in traditional Indian cuisine with millets.

  • wow! i was not even aware what gluten was. haha much more that it could cause depression.. i’ve learned quite a lot in this post. It’s great that you were finally able to do something about it. hehe thanks for the tip as well. 🙂

  • Yes, gluten can cause that. I have worked with someone on recipe who always warn me not to add a gluten recipe on the list. It is good that you have got a way out of this.

  • I really don’t bake at home even if I have oven! The photos of this bread are so tempting that I feel like trying out baking.

  • Love this recipe, I found it so hard to make a good tasting gf vegan bread. This is the best. Is there a reason you don’t pre activate your yeast just in the sugar and water first? I did to mine, and it was really good, just wondering if the bread rises more or anything?

    • Than you! I’m so happy you like it 😊😊. I’m not the best baker at all, lol, so there was no real reason. I made this a zillion times before getting it right (just experimenting) and it just worked out best this way!
