How to Make the Best Gluten Free Bread

This post contains affiliate links. See my full disclosure HERE.

When I started my gluten free diet about 14 years ago, I was looking for a bread that was the closest to what I ate before avoiding gluten! I went through a lot of dry things! πŸ™‚ Then I found one with pretty decent ingredients, but the price was speaking for the quality! πŸ˜€ Finally I gave in and I bought a bread making machine and I started to play around with recipes. I started to learn which flours complimented each other for flavor and texture.

That’s when I ended up with this gluten-free bread recipe. The bread this recipe makes is so moist but still fluffy and not too dense. It doesn’t fall apart or crumble like some gluten free breads do. It is also easy to make. My whole family and I really enjoy this bread!

I like to use this recipe to make gluten-free bread for sandwiches or toast. You can leave this bread out for about 24 hours. After that, to preserve the moisture and taste, I like to slice the bread and put it in to the freezer for up to 4 months. With gluten free bread, it is better to freeze it in order to preserve the texture of the bread.

Best Flour for the Best Gluten-Free Bread

I used three types of flour for this recipe – Namaste Gluten Free Flour Blend, Almond Flour, and Tapioca Flour.

I like to use the Namaste Flour but because of the mild nutty taste that it has, I like to use the tapioca flour because it is more bland in taste. I use the almond flour to fluff it up a little bit and to balance out the bread. The tapioca flour makes the bread moist, but also makes it dense. The combination of these flours equals the bread out and makes it really delicious with all the things you want in bread – moist, fluffy, and a good taste.


Best Sweetener

For sweeteners, I have tried this recipe with maple syrup which you can do, but I like the honey more. The honey is better because it makes the bread more brown and crispy on the outside because it burns easier, giving the bread a great crust.

Gluten Free Bread Recipe Details

There are two parts to this recipe. One part is the dry ingredients and one part is the wet ingredients. We are giong to start by making the wet ingredients. This is very important because this is the order it will go in to the bread making machine. The bread maker I have is discontinued. However, I found this one on Amazon with great reviews.

To make this bread, start with warming the water a little bit on the stovetop. It’s important to have warm water, not hot, just warm water. My water is coming from the fridge water cleaning system so it’s super cold. It has to be warm so the yeast can work.Β 

Next, you will measure out your liquid ingredients and stir together your eggs.

Once you mix your wet ingredients together, pour them in to the bread making bowl. In another medium size mixing bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients except for the yeast.

You can get creative and add herbs. I added green onions and rosemary to this loaf. Fresh herbs make the bread different and very delicious!

Now, add your dry ingredients on top of the wet ingredients in the bread making bowl. Make a little nest in the top of the dry ingredients and add the yeast.

Start the bread maker and use the gluten free setting – this is very important!

Once the bread has cooled, cut it into slices. I like to slice my bread with my cutting machine. This is not necessary, but it makes 12 perfect slices. I like this one from Amazon.

I love keeping the bread in this bread box because then my boys can take the bread when they are hungry and it keeps the bread fresh. I also love the look of this cute breadbox! It is from Amazon and you can find it HERE.

This bread stays fresh for about 24 hours (it is usually gone in our house after that time), but to keep it for longer, it is best to freeze gluten free bread past 24 hours.

I will have recipes for sandwiches on the way but until then, check out my favorite gluten free pizza recipe! We love making these pizzas for a fun Friday night.


I hope you enjoy this bread as much as my family does! I would love to know what you think in the comments, and if you add any other herbs that make it delicious!

    I’m trying this right now! I mixed according to your directions and it is in my bread machine on the gluten free setting. Is the batter fairly thin/watery? I hope so, because mine is.

    • Noemi

      Hi Dana! It may look watery when you start the bread because the wet mixture isn’t mixed in to the dry yet. Once it is all combined, the batter should not be wattery. Did it work for you? I hope you enjoyed the bread! β€β€β€β€πŸ€—

    • Suz

      Mine was super watery too, but I was using a different flour (Namastse isn’t available in my country). I let it rise once and then baked it in an oven (no bread maker here). It still turned out way better than expected! Taste is lovely too!

      • Noemi

        Hi Suz! I’m soo glad you tried this bread and it turned out well, even without the Namaste flour)! Thank you so much for being here ❀❀

  2. Iris

    Dear Noemi,

    thanks for the receipe πŸ™‚

    I want to make the bred, but the namaste-mixture is always sold out!
    What can I use as a substitute? Thanks for your answer.

    How many ml is a cup for you? Everyone has different cup-sizes.

    Best Regards

    • Noemi

      Hi Iris! πŸ€— Thank you so much for checking out this recipe! I don’t know of a good substitute instead of the Namaste flour blend because it combines so many different kinds of flours in to one that it would be hard to recreate and it would take up a lot of space in the pantry. I just checked though and it looks like the Namaste blend is in stock on Amazon right now! πŸ™‚

      One cup for us is 236 ml πŸ€—β€β€

      • Iris

        Thank you very much for your answer. I will see by amazon πŸ™‚

  4. Susan

    Sadly, I am allergic to nuts, so I can’t use almond flour. In all your testing and experience with different flours, would you have a suggestion of what I could use instead of the almond flour? Thanks for all you do. Love your videos πŸ₯°

  5. Sarah Coulson

    Hi there. I’ve looked at the things you have for sale but alllllll of them always say currently unavailable. Then if I really want it I have to go directly to the company website to get it, so I’d imagine that your not getting your affiliate commission then. Which isn’t fair to you if your putting in all that effort to put the content up. Just letting you know so you can fix it if there is something not right.

    • Noemi

      Hi Sarah! Thank you so much for your support! Usually the things I recommend go out of stock and then come back in stock. If there is something specific you are looking for let me know and I can send you a similar one that is in stock! ❀😊

  6. Candace

    Hi my 7yo son (and that says a lot he doesn’t like the videos I watch normally) and I just love your videos Noemi!! You are so inspirational creative fun and funny!

    Question is this for 1.5lb or 2lb recipe? Not sure if I missed that. Thanks!

    • Noemi

      Thank you so much to you and your son for watching my videos! It means so much to me β€β€πŸ€—I am not sure how much it weighs but it makes about 12 or 13 slices ❀
