Gluten-Free Bread With No Yeast Recipe

Table of Contents

Bread is one of the most ancient foods on the planet. After grilled meat, bread is probably the first food humanity invented. Flour, water and yeast, that’s all you need to make bread. Of course, we’ve gotten quite good at making bread, and now you’ll find hundreds of sophisticated types of bread, from croissants to ciabattas. The sky’s the limit!

You can add all types of things to bread. For starters, you can make yours with milk, eggs and butter; those are the richest bread types. You can also flavor them with fruit, add a crunch with nuts, and infuse them with cooking spices.

In the same way you can add ingredients to bread to make it tastier, you can remove some ingredients to make it healthier. I’m talking about gluten, which is harmful to some people. 

Today we’re all about simplicity, so we’re not only making gluten-free bread, but we’re also not using yeast — that’s as easy as bread gets.

Here's What You'll Need

Gluten is a protein present in many grains, including wheat, barley, rye, and spelt. These are big no-no’s, so what to use?

You can always use buckwheat flour or almond flour, but today we’re using a few lesser-known ingredients for bread-making: brown rice flour, cornstarch and tapioca starch (or tapioca flour).

With your gluten-free flour ready, you’ll also need baking powder, a pinch of salt, several eggs, milk (I use oat milk to make this bread vegan) and a little coconut oil. Here’s how you bake this marvelously inclusive bread.
