Multi-Grain Gluten Free AND Vegan Bread (makes 2 loaves)


I am so, so excited. This may be my greatest baking accomplishment ever. A gluten-free, allergy-free, vegan bread that has a nice texture, tastes good, and actually slices well.

I am so grateful to all the internet folks who taught me the secret of “the flax egg.”

Make your “flax eggs.” In a small bowl, place:

  • 4 tablespoons flax meal
  • ½ cup warm water

Leave to soak for 5 minutes.

Whisk with a fork.

Place dry ingredients in a stainless-steel mixing bowl:

  • ½ cup psyllium husk powder
  • 2 tablespoons instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 cup millet flour
  • 1 cup teff flour
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1 cup quinoa flour

Mix lightly on low speed.

Add wet ingredients to the bowl:

  • “Flax egg” mixture
  • ½ cup sunflower oil
  • 3 ½ cups warm water

Mix until blended, but it will be sticky and like children’s clay.

Oil two cast iron bread pans.

Divide the dough into your two pans, using a silicone spatula to spread it evenly and smooth out the tops.

Cover with a clean cloth, place in a warm place away from drafts, let rise for 45 minutes. (A closed microwave or cupboard is a great place to let the loaves rise.)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees (convection preferred if possible).

Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes (it should sound hollow when you tap the top of the loaf with a wooden spoon).

Turn oven off, open door, let bread sit 5 minutes to adjust temperature before you move it.

Remove from oven, let sit away from drafts for 20 minutes.

Use a butter knife to carefully cut away from the 4 sides of the pan, turn the pan over on a clean cutting board, tap the bottom, and the bread loaf should come out.

Place upright on the cutting board and let cool completely.

Slice it with a serrated bread knife.
