I know it’s been a long time coming, but I’ve found, tried and tested a whole food, gluten free bread recipe that’s really tasty….and it works!
The original recipe is from Lilykoi Hawaii on YouTube, a vlogger who I follow and have learned an awful lot from, especially about nutrition and the workings of the gut. You can find her and her videos here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7ZkWBYAAMKgcl1eMjCt3jQ
This bread recipe was originally for a bread maker, but this method works, and cooks the loaf right through.
Gluten Free Bread
1 cup brown rice
1 cup groats
1 cup rolled oats (I used porridge oats)
½ cup millet
½ cup buckwheat (I used gluten free plain flour blend)
Blend all the above and place in a large bowl.
Grind 4 tablespoons whole flax seeds and add to the bowl. (Makes approx. 5 tablespoons of ground seeds)
3 tablespoons of psyllium husk powder
½ tspn salt
2 tablespoons sweetener (I used coconut sugar)
Mix all together.
Add 1 tablespoon instant yeast
3 cups of water, all in together
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses (optional)
Mix well with a spoon and don’t stop!
Into 11/2 pound loaf tin (I used a silicon one)
Place in warm oven in the middle for 30 minutes.
Turn the heat up for a further hour, approx. 350 – 375 degrees.
A few tips….
If you’re using a metal tin, grease it lightly first.
Leave loaf in tin to cool before turning out.
If using the silicon loaf ‘tin’ and you don’t want your loaf to bulge like mine did, you can put a couple of tins in the oven on either side of the loaf, to stop it spreading out so much.
My loaf needed the full half an hour in a warm oven, and a full hour baking. On one trial, I was worried it was burning because I could smell it (I think it’s the molasses making it smell!) and I took it out ten minutes early and it was a bit damp in the middle.
Find someone to share this loaf with, because it doesn’t freeze well, or you can do as I do which is to enjoy the loaf for three or four days, and then use what’s left for breadcrumbs to make five minute mushroom burgers.

I love the flavour of this bread! It works well as toast too. I’m going to experiment over the next couple of weeks, using half the mixture to make a loaf and the other half to make a pizza base….I’ll let you know how I get on.
