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.

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.

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.

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.
