Gluten-Free Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

Table of Contents

Here’s a recipe to add to your bread-baking repertoire, whole grain gluten-free bread. As you know, whole grain bread is healthier for you for its extra levels of fiber. It is also beautifully textural with all those grains and chunks. 

The problem with most whole grain bread is that it relies on lots of grains that contain gluten, including wheat, rye and others. How to achieve the same texture using other grains that don’t contain gluten? That’s what makes this recipe special.

The bread recipe alone is quite standard, a fail-proof recipe that will give you fluffy and tender gluten-free bread despite the flour you use. I know there are some whole grain gluten-free flours out there, but there’s nothing better than making your own grain mix.

What you’ll need

Don’t be intimidated by lesser-known grains and ingredients; they’re an opportunity of learning how to bake with new grains and flours, and that will level up your baking game. 

For this whole-grain gluten-free flour, we’re using teff flour, from an ancient African grain that looks like poppy seeds, brown rice flour, white rice flour, and golden flaxseeds, texturally beautiful and protein rich.

The best part? Once you get your alternative grains, making the gluten-free flour is easy; we’re using all the ingredients in the same proportion. Make a large batch and save some time on future projects!

How to use gluten-free whole grain bread?

Use this bread like you would any other box bread. Make sandwiches with it or toast. You’ll love it on French toast too! Since it’s packed with whole grains, it’s automatically healthier than any other bread, especially the store-bought kind.

Just like that, in just an hour you’ll have a nice, grainy bread to satisfy all your needs. And it’s gluten-free!
