Gluten free bread recipes without xanthan gum
I love bread, and I love developing bread recipes that work for me personally. As such, I develop gluten free bread recipes without xanthan gum, which my digestive system does not enjoy. I’m really proud of these recipes and I love them all, so I thought it might be helpful to collate them in one place.
These gluten free bread recipes are made without oats or oat flour, as oats are not considered gluten free in Australia. Most of the recipes are vegan, meaning they are egg and dairy free. I don’t use bean or legume flours, so the recipes are low FODMAP, too.
If you’d like more gluten free and low FODMAP recipes:
Gluten free sourdough
This gluten free sourdough is the first sourdough recipe I posted on my website. It’s an easy and accessible gluten free sourdough bread classic.
Gluten free focaccia
This gluten free focaccia has the perfect chewy yet fluffy texture. It can be made without any toppings or piled high before baking for a delicious meal in one.
Gluten free cheddar and Jalapeño sourdough
There’s something about this flavour combination that just hits the spot every time. This recipe is in my cookbook, Intolerance Friendly Kitchen.
Gluten free bagels
These gluten free bagels are my pride and joy. They’re xanthan gum free, yet have the perfect amount of chew and bite. Using the process of scalding, a simple mixture of ingredients is transformed into a chewy, glossy and delicious gluten free bagel. They’re also easily made vegan.
Gluten free Vegemite scrolls
Is there anything better than a Cheesy mite scroll? Australians say no, everyone else says yes. Either way, these delicious morsels use gluten free Vegemite and plenty of cheddar for that classic, addictive flavour – 100% gluten free.
Gluten free cheesy naan
This cheesy naan is a delicious low FODMAP and gluten free dish that benefits from some garlic infused ghee. The dough itself contains no animal products, so it can be made vegan with a vegan mozzarella. Although I haven’t tried it yet, I daresay my low FODMAP vegan mozzarella would be a prime candidate.
Gluten free sourdough fougasse
Fougasse is a flattened and patterned loaf of bread that is golden brown and chewy. It’s also beautiful to look at, thanks to the ear of wheat or leaf shaped pattern it gets fashioned into. This is a recipe from my cookbook, Intolerance Friendly Kitchen.
Gluten free bread rolls
These gluten free bread rolls use the same method as my gluten free bagels to achieve a glossy, shiny and perky bun that holds it’s own form in the oven. Perfect for burgers, sandwiches or breakfast buns.
Gluten free olive and rosemary sourdough
This sourdough recipe from Intolerance Friendly Kitchen uses olive and rosemary to infuse the dough with lots of flavour. It also uses only flours that you could reasonably find in an Australian supermarket, to help make gluten free baking more accessible.
Grain free enriched white bread
This grain free white bread is the white, fluffy and slightly sweet bread of my dreams. Perfect for fairy bread, Bunnings style sausage sandwiches (ft. my vegan, grain free sausages) and a good old Vegemite sandwich.
Gluten free Aloo Paratha
Gluten free white bread sourdough
A light, white and fluffy gluten free sourdough that is more akin to a ‘white bread’ than my original sourdough recipe.
Gluten free sourdough pizza bases
Sourdough pizza bases are a delicious and fun project that can provide fresh pizza dough all weekend long. They’re low effort, high reward. Top them with my low FODMAP pizza sauce.
Grain free vegan white bread
This is the vegan version of my aforementioned grain free enriched bread. The bread is fluffy, flexible white bread, sans any dairy, eggs or animal products.
Gluten free sourdough without starch
This recipe is from my cookbook, Intolerance Friendly Kitchen. It uses clever techniques and bread making methods to create a gluten free sourdough loaf that has bite and elasticity without any starches.
Gluten free flatbread without yeast or eggs
These flatbreads were developed for people who needed a yeast free or egg free option (or both!) Unlike the original flatbread recipe, these are easily made vegan by using a plant based yoghurt.
Gluten free seeded bread
When I was developing this recipe, it was known as ‘not quite Bergen’ in my household. It’s nutty, seedy and delicious. The recipe is from my cookbook, Intolerance Friendly Kitchen.
Gluten free baguettes
These baguettes are an easy and delicious recipe that use an overnight proof and a baguette pan to help them hold shape in the oven. I like using them with my garlic infused whipped ghee, or as the bread for bruschetta.
Gluten free pesto scrolls
These pesto scrolls are a delicious and easy way to use a xanthan gum free savoury dough. Originally they were made with an onion and garlic free pesto, which means they are low FODMAP too.
Gluten free pizza bases
Sometimes you don’t want to wait for a sourdough pizza dough to proof. Enter: this easy yeasted pizza dough recipe. You can make it the day before and proof it in the fridge for a quick and easy pizza fix.
Gluten free buckwheat seed bread without yeast
A wholesome and delicious buckwheat bread for those who can’t have yeast. Buckwheat gives the bread a flexible and chewy texture. This recipe is from my cookbook, Intolerance Friendly Kitchen.
Gluten free yeasted flatbread
A classic yeasted flatbread that can be used as a sandwich bread, to dip in a low FODMAP curry, or anywhere in between.
Nut Free Life Changing Fruit Loaf
One of my earlier recipes that pays homage to the cult classic Life Changing Loaf. The recipe is free from nuts and grains, and there’s a spiced fruit loaf option too, if you fancy it.
