Tips For Baking The Perfect Gluten Free Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Bread:

Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread ~ Bob’s Red Mill Mix
  • Be sure to grease your pan, and line with parchment paper, to ensure your loaf comes out of the pan easily.
  • Take the time to soak the oats and raisins before adding them to the loaf. Otherwise, they will both steal moisture from the bread dough instead of adding moisture.
  • Give your loaf enough time to rise before baking. I find 25-30 minutes in a warm, draft-free area works best.
  • When baking bread, bake it the amount listed in the recipe, but also be sure to check the internal temperature of the loaf with an instant read thermometer. Your bread should read 200 degrees F for it to be done. Any less, and your loaf will sink after you remove it from the oven.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Bread Recipe

Growing up, cinnamon swirl bread was always a special treat. When I was a kid, my family knew someone who had a hook-up at a local Pepperidge Farm factory. They’d invite us to pick up extra loaves that were going to be discarded. I would also hunt through a huge pile of bread looking for all of the cinnamon swirl loaves.

I wasn’t a fan of the cinnamon raisin bread, but the cinnamon swirl bread was my jam! I’d toast it with butter. I’d smear it with peanut butter to make the best sandwich ever.

The Dough For Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread

If youve been following me for a while, you know that I cant seem to stop making new things from old. What I mean is I like to take something Ive already made and use the dough to make something different with it. Im a repeat offender and I cant deny it. From my gf cinnamon roll dough, Ive made: Hawaiian rolls, chocolate babka, kolaches, hot cross buns, king cake, apple fritters, yeast donuts, etc, etc.

And now we can add cinnamon raisin bread to this list!! Its so easy when you already know how to make the dough, as youre already halfway there. If youve never made this dough before, what are you waiting for? Haha! But seriously, if you havent made it before, check out my video on my cinnamon rolls post here to see how easy it is to work with! Its just like REAL wheat dough!!!

Mix And Dump Fast With The Wet Ingredients

So the ‘wet ingredients’ start with mixing the yeast. But as soon as its ready, its full steam ahead with the rest of the ingredients.

Here’s a more complete plan of what to do next:

Set your proportioned ingredients together and start with the olive oil and remaining maple syrup. Add those in.

Quickly add the ground chia and the psyllium husk powder and mix just until combined.

Immediately dump the wet ingredients into the dry and mix it with your wooden spoon.

Work quickly otherwise the wet ingredients will gel up and the dough will become like a way-too-thick lump.

How To Make Gluten

  • Start with a Soft DoughTo get a soft and tender gluten-free bread, this recipe starts with a really wet dough. How wet? Think of a thick cake batter. Thats what it looks like. The reason for this is that brown rice flour and tapioca starch perform better when theyre fully hydrated. It allows the dough to rise nice and high.To ensure the flour and starches absorb all the liquid in the recipe, mix the dough for about five minutes. Although it might not look like anything is happening during that time, two important changes are occurring as the dough mixes. First, the dough temperature rises, which the yeast loves, and the flour and starch absorb the liquid. At the end of mixing, the dough should look soft, shiny, and smooth.
  • Stir in Raisins Last.After mixing the dough, stop the mixer and add the raisins. Adding the raisins at the end prevents the raisins from breaking up as the dough mixes.
  • Allow the Dough to Risebut just once.Spread the dough evenly into a greased 8×4 inch loaf pan. Cover it with a piece of greased plastic wrap and allow to rise for about an hour. While traditional yeast-dough usually go through two rises, this dough doesnt benefit from a double rise.Once the dough has reached the top of the pan, preheat your oven. If you wait until the dough fully rises to preheat the oven, it can over-rise and collapse during baking.

    Udi’s Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread Review
    • I do not recommend replacing the brown rice flour with another flour, however, arrowroot starch can be used in place of tapioca flour if need be.

    • Honey or coconut nectar can be used in place of maple syrup, if desired.

    • For a sugar-free cinnamon raisin bread, I recommend this sugar-free sweetener.

    • I find adding a touch of coconut flour adds a little extra something to the texture of the bread, but it can be omitted for a still very tasty bread.

    • Butter, vegan butter or sunflower oil can be used in place of coconut oil.

    • This bread tastes best the same day it is made, but will keep covered at room temperature for up to 48 hours.

    • This gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread can be enjoyed as is, toasted with a smear of butter or coconut butter, alongside nut butters, and also makes an excellent french toast.

    How To Store Paleo Cinnamon Raisin Bread

    After slicing serve right away. For the leftovers, you can leave the bread loosely covered after slicing at room temperature for the first day.

    If you know youll want to keep it for awhile, wrap it tightly to store in the refrigerator or freezer. It will keep well for up to a month in the freezer and a week in the refrigerator.

    If freezing, thaw in the refrigerator before toasting to reheat. I like a toaster oven best rather than a pop-up toaster, but either should work well.

    I hope youre ready to bake this yummy paleo cinnamon raisin bread! Grab your ingredients and get your oven preheated I hope you enjoy!

  • How To Make Gluten Free Bread:


    Mix the dry ingredients: I usually mix them together right in my stand mixer.

    Bloom the yeast: Then, stir together the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Set this aside for 10 minutes. The yeast should get nice and frothy. The froth lets you know the yeast is active and ready to go. If your yeast doesn’t froth after 10 minutes. Try one more time and make sure the water temperature is correct. If it still doesn’t froth, your yeast has expired. You’ll need to get a fresh batch before making this recipe.

    Gel the psyllium husks: Stir in the psyllium husks and set aside for another 5. They will thicken and create a gel-like consistancy.

    • Bloomed yeast
    • Gelled psyllium

    Mix and rise #1: Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix on medium speed until combined. Add in the raisins and mix until they are evenly distributed into the dough. Shape the dough into a ball, place in an oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel, and let rise for 1 hour.

    Preheat the oven: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Preheating now gives the oven plenty of time to come to up the correct temperature and regulate.

    Rise #2: Once risen, form the dough into a log and place in an oiled loaf pan or bread loaf baker. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for another 45-60 minutes.

    Bake: Once risen, place the bread into the oven and bake for 55-65 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Loosen the sides with a butter knife and invert the pan to remove the bread. Cool completely on a wire rack. Slice and enjoy!

    What if my bread machine doesnt have a gluten free setting?

Bake some bread without taking time away from other prep or entertaining. Looking for a bread you dont have to fuss with? This does all the work for you! And the best part is, you dont even need a gluten free setting on your machine. Edit: this recipe used to use the rapid cycle setting .

    Yes! The ingredients are exactly the same, but the method is a bit different:1. Heat cup of water and cup of milk to 100F. 2.

    Gluten Free Raisin Bread Baking Tips:

    • Rise your dough in an oven that was heated to 200º F.
    • Losely mix in the raisins to the dry ingredients so they distribute evenly before mixing them with the standing mixer.
    • Do not punch down the gluten free bread dough!!! Gluten free dough is not the same as regular gluten dough. Your first rise will be the best rise you get. Once you deflate the dough, you will not get much additional rise.
