Super Easy Homemade Gluten

Vegan + Gluten Free Bread Recipe! NO Yeast! #kickstart2019

One of my pet peeves with buying storebought gluten-free bread or baked gluten-free products is that they tend to be expensive, dense, or dry . That means that by making my own loaf, I can enjoy fluffy tender bread that is easy and inexpensive to make!

I can tell you with all certainty that this yeast bread recipe Im sharing today is probably one of the best gluten-free bread recipes Ive ever made ! You probably wont miss regular wheat bread anymore after trying this!

What About The Fails

I have eaten dozens of variations of gluten free vegan bread in the last few months. And that means there have been many fails.

I use the term loosely. None of my experiments got thrown away and all were entirely edible. I could actually probably have posted any of the recipes here and the bread would have made many of you happy. But I am very very pedantic. And when I say no compromise, I mean no compromise. Integrity is something I truly strive for.

Artisan Gluten Free Bread

If youre searching for that perfect bakery loaf, look no further than this Gluten-Free Bread. The recipe produces a beautiful artisan gluten-free bread loaf that can be baked with a crusty or soft exterior. Cut into it and you will reveal tender, slightly chewy bread with a wonderfully tight crumb. It has the delightful weightiness of a rustic round loaf. You wont believe its not only gluten-free, but also vegan, nut-free, gum-free, and nightshade-free .

This allergy-friendly bread begs to be sliced and slathered with your favorite spread, like hummus, homemade jam, or soft dairy-free cheese. But its also great all-around bread for sandwiches, crostini, French toast, bread pudding, stuffing, or croutons.

Tips For Making Gluten

Here are my tips that work with this gluten-free bread recipe. See blow for my gluten free bread machine recipe.

Don’t substitute anything unless I specified above that I’ve tested it. This is important. If you substitute something I can’t guarantee anything and I can’t help you troubleshoot if something doesn’t work in your gluten-free bread.

Ingredients at room temperature work best. You can always run your eggs under warm water for a couple minutes to bring the temperature up.

Read the recipe instruction and get all ingredients out before you start.

Use dry active yeast or quick yeast.

If your bread sinks in the middle before it is done baking you most likely let the yeast proof sit too long before using it or you let your bread rise too long. You want put your gluten-free bread in the oven when it rises just above the top of the loaf pan, no longer.

Make sure your water is between 95-110 degrees before adding the yeast. If you don’t have a thermometer I suggest you get one.

Line the loaf pan with parchment paper and then spray it with oil, this will help you remove the loaf from the pan.

Pan size matters. If you use a wider pan your loaf will be wider, and shorter. If you use a narrower pan your loaf baking time might change.

Again, if you have any questions on how to make gluten free bread please leave me a comment below. I’ve included a video that shows step-by-step how to make gluten-free bread.

Why Make Your Own Gluten

Simple Buckwheat Bread Recipe (gluten

Shop bought bread is full of all kinds of strange ingredients and often includes eggs. I am trying to move away from adding eggs to bread .

Plus, avoiding adding eggs means that its easier to make the bread vegan which can only be a good thing for all the gluten-free vegans out there.

Instead I rely on my quality gluten free flour blends plus natural bread ingredients.

If you are not sure what a gluten free flour blend is then Id suggest that you read What On Earth IsA Gluten Free Flour Blend? It will save you having any more baking disasters.

How Long To Bake Gluten

This gluten-free bread recipe works best when baked for 60-65 minutes in the oven or on the gluten-free setting in a bread machine.

See my notes on gluten free bread recipe for the bread machine below.

Remember to cover your gluten-free bread with foil half-way through baking so it doesn’t over-brown.

You might read that a loaf is done baking once it hits around 200 degrees F. Please bake this loaf 60-65 minutes even if your thermometer says otherwise.

Millet Flour Brown Rice Flour Sorghum Flour & Tapioca Starch

Ive created this flour and starch blend for optimal results in this gluten-free vegan bread recipe, so I dont recommend substituting a store-bought flour blend. If you must substitute one of the flours with another gluten-free flour, stick with lighter grain flours.

Avoid almond flour, seed flour, and coconut flour in this recipe, because they will set the moisture balance off. Heavier gluten-free flours, like teff or buckwheat, can also be tricky. If you want to incorporate these types of flour, I recommend trying the Artisan Multigrain Boule recipe in my ebook, Gluten-Free Baking from Scratch.

Dish By Dish Tips/tricks:

  • The Gluten-Free Bread Dough Will Be Wet and Sticky: Dont be alarmed when you see that the bread dough is wet and shaggy and sticky and shapeless strangely resembling cake batter as opposed to the firm and shapable traditional bread dough. It is completely normal and desired to have a wet bread dough when making gluten-free baked goods, because this will ensure a moister crumb once baked. Please DO NOT add more flour in an attempt to make the dough drier or more manageable. Gluten-free bread dough, unlike normal bread dough, does not required kneading, so it doesnt matter that you cant shape it with your hands since it will go straight into the loaf pan and take the shape of the pan.
  • Extra Fiber and Binding Power: If you want even more fiber and more binding powder, you can mix in 2 tablespoons of psyllium husk powder with the dry ingredients.
  • Add Flavor with Other Flours: If you would to add a bit more flavor and texture, you can replace 1/2 cup of the GF all-purpose flour blend with brown rice flour, sorghum flour, millet flour, buckwheat flour or almond flour.
  • Pan Size Will Determine the Height of Bread: I like using an 8 x 4 loaf pan because the bread rises slightly more in this smaller pan. If you use a larger pan , just note that the dough will spread out more and as a result will not rise as high compared to baking in a smaller pan.

Equipment Needed For Making Gluten Free Vegan Bread & Tips For Getting It Right

Vegan Gluten-Free Bread Recipe in The Bread Kitchen

This Gluten Free Vegan Bread is actually really easy to make. Just like my non-vegan gluten free Wholemeal Bread recipe, I can have a mix made and ready to prove in under half an hour.

You do not require any fancy equipment and because this is gluten free bread, no kneading by hand is required. However, there are some things that will help you reach bread-baking success and if you are planning on baking regularly, I would recommend you consider buying.

What Kind Of Yeast Do I Use To Make A Vegan Bread Recipe

Here are the facts. If you dont bake very often, yeast can be sort of confusing. Look at the shelf at the grocery store there are SO many different types! As a result, some are better for baking pizza dough and others are best for bread. It gets even more confusing when you realize that there are actually just three types of yeast. Allow me to explain


There are three types of yeast two are dry yeast and then there is cake yeast, which is a wet yeast. Well discuss that another day. Lets focus on the types of dry yeast you can use to make vegan bread.

  • Regular Yeast
  • Instant Yeast Other names for this include quick-rise, rapid-rise, and bread machine yeast,

You can use either type of yeast to bake bread with, but each type has advantages.

Baking with active dry yeast often requires two proofing sessions, meaning, the yeast has to be activated and then again when the bread rises before baking. Personally, I like to let the bread rise right in the pan and skip second rise, going straight to baking.

Also, active yeast has a longer shelf life than instant yeast well over a year if you keep it refrigerated. This is the yeast I used for this vegan bread recipe and the bread has lasted me a good while in the fridge! LOVE IT!

Instant yeast is what many bakers choose, simply because its quicker to make things with. If you make vegan bread with instant yeast, it only requires a single rise . As a result, you get to enjoy that warm bread sooner!

Can You Make This Vegan Bread Without A Bread Maker

Yes you can. If you dont have a bread machine then I recommend you use a mixer like this Sage Mixer to mix up the dough. This ensures the ingredients are well combined and the dough forms properly.

Firstly, combine the dry ingredients using the K-beater. Allow the dry ingredients to mix for 30 seconds. The great thing about this Sage mixer is that it has a timer on it.

Once the dry ingredients are combined, add the wet ingredients and mix at the folding/kneading setting for 1 minute. Scrape off the scraper and mix again for another 30 seconds.

The mixture will then be ready to transfer to a greased tin. I highly recommend using this particular loaf tin. It is perfect for gluten free bread because it is narrow with high sides.

When you bake gluten free bread the biggest trouble youll have is getting it to rise. With the correct tin the dough will reach the top of the tin and provide a slight dome.

Due to the lack of gluten youll never get gluten free bread that will hold its form above the top of a tin. This is why you need a tall tin to assist with getting the best looking loaf you can.

Cover the tin with a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for approx. 1 hour until it has reached the top of the tin.

Then transfer to a pre-heated oven. Youll need to get the oven really hot before adding the bread. I suggest getting the oven to 220 degrees C fan before adding the bread. Youll then want to turn the temperature down to 180 degrees C fan.

Easy Homemade Vegan Bread

First of all Im about a day late, actually a week late, for posting this recipe. I totally meant to share it before easter but then LIFE happened. Thank you for giving me a little GRACE!

Second of all..

A Note About The Dough

vegan gluten free yeast free bread recipe

This dough is wet and sticky. After youve beaten it, it will look almost like buttercream frosting. There is no way you could knead this dough without having to add TUNS of extra flour, which would inevitably ruin the breads texture.

After the first rise, brush a spatula with oil or coat it with cooking spray. Youll fold the dough gently using the spatula and pour it into a prepared loaf pan. It wont pour into the pan like a cake batter, youll need to use your oiled spatula to guide it into the pan. Then you can use your spatula to smooth the top. You may need to re-oil your spatula a few times during this process.

Cover the dough and let is go through its second rise. When youre ready to bake it, you can sprinkle on some extra flour to the get the artisan bread look.

Tips For Steaming Bread In The Oven

  • Make sure to add boiling water to the baking dish.
  • Place the bread on a higher rack in the oven and place the baking dish of water on the lower rack.
  • If the water in the baking dish all runs out during the baking process, make sure to refill it.
  • Be VERY CAREFUL when opening the oven door to remove the bread, because a lot of HOT STEAM will escape from the oven and you might burn yourself.
  • To prevent this from happening, open the oven door first, then step backuntil all the hot steam has escaped from the oven before putting your hands inside to remove the bread. Also, make sure to wear oven gloves and a long-sleeved shirt.
  • Make sure to leave the bread to cool completely before slicing.

Other Variables Affecting My Gluten Free Vegan Bread

Time to play with other variables flours, oil and moisture levels, acid levels, the amount of sugar and bicarbonate of soda, the quantity of yeast used all have come under scrutiny in my kitchen.

The gluten free flours being used, as well as the gluten-replacers were an important consideration, not just for texture, but also to ensure this bread recipe was accessible to as many people as possible. It was also important to limit the number of flours used, to make it more straight forward.

I have a real passion for flour blending. Getting it right can be the difference between a bake which is a triumph or a failure. And I have yet to find any single gluten free flour blend that I can rely on for all my gluten free baking. If you want to try flour blending yourself, check out my Guide to Gluten Free Flours Page.

Little by little, the gluten free vegan loaf you see here today became a reality. There were no major breakthroughs. Just a steady up and down learning process with each and every bake.
