Items you will need

  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal
  • 1 tablespoon xanthan gum
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (plus a teaspoon of sugar if you make this for the oven)
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups heated water (heat for one minute in most microwaves)

People who suffer from untreated celiac disease should not eat products containing wheat, rye, or barley, or they risk damage to their intestines. A gluten-free diet typically will help those with the disease make a full recovery.

Step 1

Grease a loaf pan.

Step 2

Sift all of the dry ingredients together.

Step 3

Mix the eggs, molasses, vinegar and oil.

Step 4

Mix the active dry yeast, sugar and a quarter-cup of the heated water in small bowl. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes until it foams up.

Step 5

Add the wet ingredients to the dry, then stir in the yeast mixture.

Step 6

Slowly add the rest of the water until the dough is like stiff cake batter. You might not need all of the water or you might need a bit more.

Step 7

Put the dough in the prepared pan and let rise for about one and a half hours. Put a towel over it to keep it warm. Once it has risen to the top of the pan, bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.


  • Store your bread in a large zip-lock bag. It also can be sliced and frozen if you are the only one eating gluten-free.
