freshly baked gluten free bread

There is nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread. I would consider it my favourite aroma. My mums homemade bread wafting through the house is still enough to send my tastebuds into a ridiculous frenzy. This bread is quite easy to bake and holds its texture well for a gluten free bread thanks to the inclusion of psyllium husks.

nutritional information

  • The combination of flours in this bread provides sustainable complex carbohydrates. Many gluten free breads are made from refined white rice flours that are devoid of any quality nutrition.
  • You could use egg replacer instead of eggs if needed. You could also use a combination of flaxseeds and water.
  • Treat this bread as a base recipe and add in extra elements for crunch and texture. Try sunflower seeds, poppy seeds and pepitas or grated orange zest, dried figs and walnuts. The combinations are endless!
