Gluten free bread/ Top Engelska

The Flour Free Bread, (LCHF)

Easy gluten free/flour free bread recipe

If you are on a gluten-free diet then I’m sure you know one of the hardest things to find is good gluten-free white bread. This bread is so good. I have tried many, many gluten free recipes and most of the time the texture turns out to be spongy, rubber like or dense. This bread has a texture that reminds me of sponge cake. I know… it sounds strange, but it’s really nice. Fluffy and moist!
Not only is this gluten free bread delicious. It’s easy to make and comes out perfectly every time. There’s only 7 ingredients, no resting, no rising.  Just mix in a bowl, pour, bake, slice, enjoy! Delicious, simple, and nutritious.

I can easily eat a whole loaf of this bread by myself in one week. I love enjoying it with a slice of cheese or just as it is, but if you’re not so keen on eating it all in one week, you can easily freeze this for later. To freeze, I recommend allowing the bread to completely cool, slice, then lay each sliced in a single layer in an airtight glass container.

1 bread á 22 slices (2 g carbs per slice)
1 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp almond flour
5 tbsp sesame seeds
5 tbsp of psyllium husk powder (What is psyllium Husk? Read more >>Buy it online here >>
2.5 tsp baking powder
5 Eggs
1/3 cup (75 grams) of melted butter or coconut oil
3/4 cup creme fraiche* (For milk-free – use coconut cream)
1/2 cup yogurt* thick, full fat, naturell. (For milk-free – use coconut cream)

*You can replace creme fraiche with yoghurt or replace yoghurt with creme fraiche.

Directions:

        1. Grease a medium loaf pan with an optional fat.
        2. Pour in sesame seeds and shake until the sides are covered.
        3. Preheat the oven to 400 F (200) degrees
        4. Mix together the dry ingredients.
        5. Stir in egg + crème fraiche + Turkish yogurt.
        6. Throw in the melted butter / coconut oil and stir well.
        7. Work quickly and spread it evenly in the form.
        8. Put the bread in the oven for about 35 minutes.
        9. Let cool slightly before cutting into it.

This almond flour bread may be the best low carb bread recipe yet!

        Why could you not have updated your post to say this? I literally just made the batch and would have vitamixed the psyllium had I known. I appreciate people posting their recipes but at the end of the day you get this sort of thing happen and that’s a heap of ingredients wasted. Psyllium husk is husks. Psyllium powder is psyllium husk powder.

No excuse but my 4 year old was screaming because I let his cousin help me while he was playing cowboys until he realised what I was doing and it frazzled me. But no excuse! Gah please accept my apology. I shall try this again with psyllium powder!

      I’ve made this bread many times, but I haven’t used coconut flour. I’m sure that would be great to, but it will have another flavor.

    I made this this morning. It’s very spongy, but in a good way. There is a slightly eggy taste and texture. I added a bit of salt for more flavor and I think next time I’ll add about 1/2 tsp. I don’t care for the sesame seeds. I love the crust. I made four mini loaves. I used butter for the fat and coconut cream in place of the dairy. Mine is very dark unlike those pictured on this blog. My psyllium husk powder was dark. I found this near the laxatives at the grocery store in the US.

      Hi Jimme.
      No, I don’t think chia seeds could replace psyllium husk flour. Psyllium gives the bread it´s soft texture and I don’t think chia seeds would do that, but it would probably be great to combine both in the recipe to add more nutrition and healthy fats from the chia seeds.

    Wow, I’m really impressed with the taste of this bread. I’ve only made one other keto bread from recipes on-line, and the other one tasted way too eggy for me. My bread was a little bit “wet” though. I’m wondering if I used 4 eggs instead of 5, and added a little more almond flour, do you think it would help? I used coconut oil and plain greek yogurt instead of creme fraiche (so I had 3/4 cup yogurt + 1/2 cup yogurt). Any ideas? I appreciate any suggestions.
    Thanks for a wonderful recipe share, I will try to tweek it a little.

      Hi Julie!
      I’m so happy you liked the bread. =)
      I havent tried using greek yoghurt myself…is it thick or runny? Creme fraiche is very thick and if the yoghurt you used was a bit thinner, than maybe that’s the problem. If you make the bread once more and switch the greek yoghurt to full fat creme fraiche it should turn out perfect. Measure the ingreadients carefully and if it’s still seems too wet – use a little more almond flour.
      Don’t use four eggs instead of five. The eggs makes the bread fluffy and moist.

      Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

      Adding yeast and honey for a more breadlike flavor sounds like a great idea. Try it! I’m not sure how almond flour reacts to yeast though….maybe it’s not the same as ordinary flour. Perhaps you should google it first and see if anyone else has made bread with almond flour and yeast.
      If you do try it I’d love to know how it turns out.

        Hi Angela. Know I didn’t grind the chia seeds. Didn’t give it a crunchy texture but the chia and flax seed gave it more of a wheat flour texture. I also lined pan with sesame seeds and chia seeds. taste great.
        I also made this bread and put vanilla, cinnamon, and monk sweetener and made it the regular way.
        Kind of like a sweet cake. It was great for when I need something sweet! Made a spread of cream cheese, Coco, monk sweetener, and heavy cream to put on it.
        I think i will try cheese in it next. the sky’s the limit.

    Hi, I just made this bread for the second time today. It’s my favourite low carb bread so far. I love how the sesame seeds give the crust a crunchy texture.
    One issue I’ve had both times is that it looks amazing coming out of the oven but as it cools the top sinks down and ends up being more flat. What causes this?

      Hi Erin. I’m not sure what causes the bread to sink down, but I just read on another blog that how much your bread will rise (and fall!) post-bake depends quite a bit on your altitude. I’m not sure if thats true, but I haven’t had any problems with my bread sinking more than just a little.
      Another interesting detail I read about on the same page that I’m going to try is adding whey protein isolate. It says it’s will ensure your bread doesn’t collapse post-bake.
      Read more on this page. It has lots of great information…
      https://www.gnom-gnom.com/gluten-free-paleo-keto-bread/

      The quality of the almond flour can vary much from the different brands and if you are using a finely ground almond flour it would probably not sink as much.
      I hope this information was helpful.

    I made this recipe twice. The first one I used the coconut cream but after making it I realized the amount of sugar was very high. The second one I used coconut milk and made the coconut cream to make it sugar free. Turned out really well. I geared this for my anti-inflammatory program.
    Loved how easy it is to make. You are in and out of the kitchen.

    I would like to know if any other flour can be used? I would like to pass this recipe on but the person is alergic to almonds.

      Hi Karen! I haven’t tried using any other flours than almond flour in this recipe, but I’m sure you can replace it with something else. I have just started making keto friendly vegetarian recipes and I’m still experimenting, but I found a great blogpost about keto flour substitutions. I think you will find what you’re looking for here…

    I made this bread yesterday, it puffed up beautifully while in the oven, but dropped once it started to cool. Is there a doneness tip? Also it is a lot darker than the one pictured. Is that the psyllium husk? 5 tablespoons seems a lot. It tasted okay but is a little moist, but maybe it wasn’t cooked enough?

      Hi Janine!
      I have made this bread many times and it always sinks a little, but not much. You can see in my pictures that my loaf has kind of a wrinkle on top. If your bread turned out more flat than in my pictures it’s probably one of the ingredients and I don’t think it’s the psyllium husk. Maybe the almond flour, but I’m not sure.
      Some brand of psyllium husk can make bread dark and sometimes purple. If the bread is too moist I’d say it needs a few more minutes in the oven. It is supposed to be fluffy and moist, but not too moist as if it has been undercooked.

    I rarely feel the need to comment but felt I had to with this ‘bread’ – and that’s because it’s absolutely amazing!
    Lovely soft texture with a beautiful brown crust –
    (My only feedback is that it needs a little salt)
    Thank you so much for the recipe

    Is it supposed to be creme fraiche AND yogurt, or is supposed to be creme fraiche OR yogurt?

      Hi Daniel. It’s supposed to be both, but you can also replace creme fraiche with yoghurt or replace yoghurt with creme fraiche.

        Thank you for your reply. When I made it, it was exceedingly heavy and moist. It was also purplish. I threw it away and will try it again tonight. I did read that grinding may solve the purple problem, from oxidation of psyllium husk powder. I am completely clueless of why my bread was so different from yours.

          Hi Daniel.
          I don’t know why the bread turned out heavy. It’s supposed to be very light and fluffy. If you make it again, perhaps you could try with another brands of almond flour and psyllium husk. I have heard another woman saying that her bread turned out purple and when I googled it I found out that some brand of psyllium husk can make bread dark and sometimes purple.

    Angela, do you have a certain brand of psyllium husk powder? I have now made this 4 times, using 2 different brands of psyllium, and even made my own baking powder this time. In the U.S. (at least where I have looked) creme fraiche doesn’t exist, so I made it. Psyllium husk powder only seems to be available in the laxative section. I am certain there has to be something else available.
    Thank you.

    Most psyllium husk powder recipes that I have read require boiling water. Yours does not. How do you get away with that and still make this bread any good?

      Hi Joyce!
      Psyllium husk powder swell up and develop a gel-like coating when mixed with water and it doesn’t matter if it’s in cold or hot liquids. I almost always use psyllium husk powder in cold liquids. Just remember to stir it well for about 10 seconds to avoid lumps.

    I just made this bread it is very tasty a bit soft but I will add 5 mins next time that might fix that issue. But mine is purple it looks cool but did I do something wrong?

      Hi Kendra.
      Several people have commented and said their bread turned out purple. You haven’t done anything wrong. Some brands of psyllium husk powder turn purple after cooking. It’s completely safe to eat, but looks unusual.

      Have a lovely day,

    Why do you use psyllium powder, can it be omitted?

      Hi Mary! In gluten-free baking psyllium husk powder is important, as it allows for the binding of moisture, which creates a less crumbly gluten-free baked good. It gives the bread the structure that gluten normally provides. If you don’t have any psyllium husk fiber powder or don’t like using it, try replacing it with:

      Chia seeds or flax seeds. For a recipe that calls for a 1/3 cup of psyllium husk fiber powder, a 1/3 cup of ground chia seeds or ground flax seeds will work. Make sure you take into account the calories and macros from the seeds you use if you are tracking your macros.
      Xanthan gum. You can use a 1:1 ratio to replace psyllium husk with xanthan gum as well.

      Keep in mind that these substitutions may not be able to add exactly the right texture and qualities to some recipes that you might expect. You may need to experiment with these replacement ratios a bit until you get it right.

      =)

    I made it and the taste is great but the texture I get is too soft as if it didn’t rise enough or cook long enough….I live in North Georgia and just wondering if I need to cook at same or a lower temp for longer, not put as much psyllium husk powder, or what? mine definitely doesn’t look as fluffy and bread texture as yours…help 🙂

      Hmmmm, I’m not sure why your bread won’t rise. If it’s still wet/soft, I’m guessing it should have stayed in the oven a little longer.
      Keep the psyllium husk – it gives the bread its spongey, fluffy texture and bake at the same temperature. Did you have enough baking powder? Perhaps add a little more next time. You shouldn’t have to, but just to make sure it will rise, you could give it a try. Measure the ingredients carefully. If the dough is too wet or too dry it could affect the result. I hope it will work out well for you.

    I’m going to try to make this vegan with chia seed/water mix instead of the eggs (wish me luck!) but I wanted to know for the creme fraiche and yogurt substitutes… should I use BOTH 3/4 and 1/2 cups coconut cream?

    Thanks!

      Hi Mathew.
      Yes, that’s correct. You need to use 3/4 cup plus 1/2 cup of coconut cream to replace the creme fraiche and yoghurt.

    This looks good. Since the psyllium powder is a laxative, will the bread have a laxative effect?

      Hi Eloisa! What a beautiful name you have. =)
      You don’t have to worry about the psyllium husk being laxative. It’s relatively small amounts in the bread so you can eat as much as you want.

    Could flax meal be used instead of the pysilium?

      Hi Liz. I don’t think you could replace psyllium husk with flax meal, but I’m not sure. I haven’t tried it. Psyllium gives the bread it’s spongy, moist texture. I’m just guessing that flax meal would make the bread a little more dense.

    Could I use oat fiber in place of the psyllium?

      Hi Evelyn!
      I don’t think you can use oat fibre instead of psyllium. Psyllium is an important ingredient in this bread. It creates a gel like substance that binds to water and makes the bread more moist.

      Have a great day,

    Did it first time today and I am impressed. Didn’t expect it to be so good! Nice, golden on outside and has light, airy, moist texture. Psyllium husk – didn’t use the powder as the one I have is quite dark and gets lumpy very quickly too, so just used psyllium husk and added a bit more yoghurt. Didn’t drop much as I switched off the oven and left it to rest for a wee while after baked. Definitely will do again!
