Why Is Everyone Going Gluten Free?

In recent surveys, around ⅓ of all Americans say they’re going gluten free. Maybe you’re one of them, but if not, you’ve probably wondered: why? Well, in the past 60-70 years, more and more people are living with gluten intolerance, a.k.a. celiac disease. Plus, rates of non-celiac gluten sensitivities have also been on the rise. In fact, gluten sensitivity is one of the most common food sensitivities people deal with today.

While digestive troubles, bloating, and abdominal pain are some common symptoms, gluten sensitivities can have a range of symptoms. For some, seemingly-unrelated issues like serious skin problems or feeling extremely tired can be signs of gluten sensitivity. For others, like myself, gluten can affect their mood—and it’s even been linked to depression and anxiety. Whether you’re diagnosed with gluten intolerance or just don’t like how you feel when you eat it, it can get frustrating…Hence, why I created these gluten free bread recipes!

And, that’s why I choose Bob’s Red Mill products for my gluten free baking needs. They process, package and test all of their gluten free products in a 100% dedicated gluten free facility, so there’s no chance of cross-contamination. So, if you’re gluten intolerant, you can rest easy using Bob’s Red Mill’s products! To keep these gluten free bread recipes 100% gluten free, I highly recommend giving Bob’s Red Mill flours a try. And, I just think they make my breads plain fluffier and tastier!

The Best Thing Since…Sliced Bread

Long before this collaboration, I’ve loved Bob’s Red Mill and used their products in my own kitchen for years. Honestly, they’re just a good and trustworthy brand that believes in food as the core of health, like I do! The brand has been around over three decades, so they understand the growing need for quality gluten free goods. And, Bob’s Red Mill is an employee-owned company, so they clearly care about the people working for them. But they also care about us—the people eating their food.

3 Gluten Free Flours, 3 Gluten Free Bread Recipes

Thanks to all of the options Bob’s Red Mill offers, I was able to craft 3 gluten free bread recipes using 3 different gluten free flours! But, they’re all equally easy to make in just about an hour. So, there’s plenty of variety here—choose what suits your lifestyle. (Or, your taste buds!)

First, I’ve got the most basic and easy gluten free bread recipe, using just 6 ingredients. Then, my honey oat bread recipe, for a subtly sweet whole grain option. And, last but not least, my low carb almond flour bread with just 6g net carbs per slice. Which, of course, is also grain free and totally paleo friendly!

Easy Gluten Free Bread Recipe Without Yeast

Gluten Free Bread Recipes

Forget what you thought you knew about dry, stiff, or gummy gluten free sandwich breads. This easy gluten free bread recipe is SO light, soft, and fluffy—it’s hard to believe that it’s gluten free! Honestly, it has the texture and taste of classic white bread, just without the pesky gluten. And, it cuts perfectly into clean slices for sandwiches or toast. Most importantly, you can make this gluten free bread recipe with NO yeast, and only 6 simple ingredients!

But, no yeast, no gluten…where’s the fluffy goodness come from? Usually, yeast is the key to getting bread to rise and maintain its lift. Instead, this gluten free bread recipe uses whipped egg whites—so no annoying waiting for your dough to rise! And, to prevent your bread from getting too dense or heavy, you’ll need a quality flour with a super-fine texture. For me, my hands-down best choice is Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour! It’s a simple blend of high-quality ingredients—primarily rice flour—and its super-fine texture makes for ultra-light and fluffy bread.

And, as with all of Bob’s Red Mill’s gluten free products, it’s tested and certified 100% gluten free. Plus, it’s specially formulated to work in recipes with baking soda and baking powder, not yeast dough. Perfect for this gluten free bread recipe! Best of all, you can use this 1-to-1 Baking Flour in all kinds of baked goods as a DIRECT replacement for wheat or all-purpose flour. No need for specialty ingredients, no custom recipes—just a deliciously simple swap for gluten free cookies, cakes, muffins, and more!

Whole Grain Honey Oat Bread

Gluten Free Bread Recipes

If you like the taste and soft texture of a fluffy wheat bread but NOT the gluten, try this honey oat bread recipe! Made with oat flour and rolled oats, it’s full of nutritious, whole grain goodness. Plus, the honey adds a scrumptious hint of sweetness for a fun flavor change. Again, like all of these gluten free bread recipes, no yeast and no bread machine needed! But, even without the yeast and gluten, the oat flour makes each slice incredibly soft and light—perfect for toasting. Or, my personal favorite preparation: French toast!

Although gluten free flour blends are a common choice for gluten free bread recipes, they’re not the only option. Luckily, oats are an affordable whole grain and naturally gluten free! But, if you live with celiac or have a gluten sensitivity (like myself), be sure to choose a certified gluten free brand. That’s why I stick with Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats! As always, their oats are handled in a dedicated gluten free facility and tested to ensure they’re 100% gluten free. And, I love that they offer a certified organic oats option as well!

Of course, oats of all kinds are a great source of soluble fiber, which is crucial for a healthy digestive system. Surprisingly, oats are also a rich source of protein, helping to pack 7g into each slice of this honey oat bread! But I use Bob’s Red Mill’s oats pretty much EVERY day and I can sincerely taste a difference. They’re just plain tastier, plumper, and make a simple bowl of oatmeal SO satisfying. Bob’s Red Mill also sells a pre-made gluten free oat flour, which is a fantastic go-to baking ingredient for me. Or, you can just as easily blend up oats and sift them into a smooth, fluffy flour for this honey oat bread recipe!

Low Carb Almond Flour Bread

Gluten Free Bread Recipes

Okay, finding tasty, soft, fluffy gluten free bread recipes is tricky enough as it is. But, finding a low carb bread recipe that’s delicious, or even usable for low carb sandwiches? It’s near impossible! (Trust me, I’ve tried…) Then, after some serious experimenting in the kitchen, I finally cracked the code with this low carb almond flour bread recipe. It holds together well for a low carb sandwich bread, but still has a soft bite—and only 7g net carbs per slice!

In all sorts of low carb baking recipes, almond flour is an all-star option: low in carbs, yet rich in nutritious fats, protein, and fiber. And, an awesome paleo baking ingredient since it’s naturally grain free! Yet, most almond flours are denser and not quite as fluffy as grain-based flours. So, what to do without any yeast or gluten? Again, it’s whipped egg whites to the rescue! They provide all the lift and fluffiness this low carb almond flour bread needs, while still keeping the carb count low. And, Bob’s Red Mill’s Super-Fine Almond Flour has the perfect texture to keep this recipe light and moist. Plus, it adds a subtle nutty flavor that I love!

Second to their oats, Bob’s Red Mill’s Almond Flour is definitely the product I use most. Yes, it’s an amazing ingredient that makes low carb and paleo treats possible. But what I like most is how versatile it is. It’s so tasty in savory recipes, as a low carb substitute for breadcrumbs in meatballs, or as a coating on filets of fish or chicken! Of course, it’s handled with the same care as all of their gluten free products and tested to ensure it’s safe for those with gluten intolerances. And, most importantly, it’s the key to making this lusciously soft low carb almond flour bread possible! FINALLY.
