Gluten Free AND Vegan Bread Recipe

This bread recipe is a double challenge. It requires both gluten free ingredients and vegan ingredients, but it’s surprisingly easy to make using your bread machine’s dough setting.

What defines a gluten free ingredient is a variety of flours that lack gluten.  Gluten free all-purpose flour is the easiest one to use and can usually be found in the specialty, baking section of mot grocery stores. 

Vegan free ingredients essentially involves the omission of certain ingredients like eggs, milk, butter or buttermilk.  That’s pretty easy to do substituting water for milk, coconut oil or olive oil for butter and just skipping the eggs altogether. 

This recipe also calls for the use of Xanthan gum which helps with the rising process.  It can also be found in the specialty baking section of your grocery store, but you may need to ask someone where it’s located.

This bread can either be baked from start to finish in the bread machine if you have a gluten free setting, or you can use the dough setting and finish in the oven in a buttered bread pan with a preheated temperature setting of 350°F. for 30 to 35 minutes. 

INGREDIENTS:
 1 1/2 cups warm water
 2 tsp xanthan gum
 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
 3 Tbsp. sugar
 2 tsp coconut oil or olive oil
 3 cups of gluten free all-purpose flour
 1 tsp bread machine or active dry yeast
DIRECTIONS:
1

Put the ingredients in to the bread pan in the order indicated in the Ingredients section and select the gluten free setting for a 1.5-pound loaf and a medium setting. If you don’t have a gluten free setting you can select the dough setting and bake in a buttered bread pan in a preheated oven at 350°F. for 30 to 35 minutes.

2

When done, let the bread rest for 10 minutes and slice and serve.

    My Breville machine will only do a 2 lb loaf or larger. Is there a way to adjust this recipe that will work?

    How would you suggest adjusting the recipe for high altitudes. We live at 7200 feet. Thanks.

      Hi,

      Not a clue. Get online with your bread machine manufacturer and ask them.

    Can I replace the all purpose gluten free flour with Almond flour? I don’t mind the gluten, I just need a low carb option to the flour. Also, can I use yeast for a bread machine instead of the xanthan gum?

      Yes, you can replace the all purpose gluten free flour with Almond flour.

    Great recipe!! I’ve tried many oven and bread maker recipes and they all turn out sunken in, doughy, and just not right! This one didn’t sink when it cooked and was even texture throughout.

    I did let it cool on it’s side and kept flipping it every 5 minutes or so until cool so the moisture wouldn’t settle.

    I don’t know what I did wrong but this turned out awful. I followed this recipe exactly. Set my bread machine to gluten free. It was a hard ball the size of my fist when it was done baking.

      Hi Meg,

      I HAVE TO DO SOME RESEARCH HERE. It was kitchen tested but I’ll also cross-reference with other similar recipes on the Internet to see if there’s variance or any identification of problems. Gluten free does present challenges due to the fact that yeast want gluten to grow and cause a bread to rise.

    We love this recipe! I’m new to baking gluten-free. From your experience, will this bread freeze well for later use if I make several loaves at once? Also, if my gluten-free mix contains xanthan gum already would you recommend that I use less than 2 tsps?

      Hi Sondra,

      It should freeze fine and skip the xanthan gum if the mix already has it.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! You are so “spot on” when you express the challenge of a successful loaf of bread using vegan, gluten-free ingredients. But your recipe was my first successful loaf that I can actually call “bread” and make a sandwich with; the rest made great “crackers”😄 The taste is very yummy as well , not cardboard like.

    I did give it a double rise and baked it in the oven instead of letting it go completely through the bread machine. I wonder if that is the secret? Your recipe was the first I found that mentioned a”gluten free”bread cycle… it never occurred to me.

    Anyways, i highly recommend this to anyone !!
