Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups millet flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour (make sure you buy one that's labeled gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 2 tbsp egg replacer (can substitute corn starch)
  • 2 tbsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 2 1/4 tsp of active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 cup almond milk mixed with 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (can substitute sugar)
  • 1 1/2 tsp finely ground sea salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Add the yeast and maple syrup to the water and let stand until the yeast starts to bloom, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Mix the various flours together with the baking soda, flax meal, egg replacer, and xanthan gum. Whisk everything thoroughly to ensure it's all mixed together.
  • Add the almond milk to the yeast-water mixture along with the flours and salt.
  • Mix using the paddle attachment on a stand mixer or by hand. Drizzle in the oil as you mix. Continue to mix for about 8 minutes or until everything's well-incorporated and you have a fairly smooth-looking, batter-like dough.
  • Oil a standard 9 by 5 inch loaf pan. Pour the dough into the pan and, using a spatula, even out the top as best as you can.
  • Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place for 60-90 minutes or until the dough has domed around the top of the pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the bread for 55 minutes. Insert a thermometer in the middle at the end of baking-- it should register at least 200 degrees.
  • Remove the loaf from the oven and let it stand on a rack until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes. Remove from the loaf pan and continue cooling the bread on the rack.
  • Enjoy!
