Low-Sodium Gluten Free Bread Made with Expandex

Looking for a lighter gluten free bread recipe? The first time I made my gluten-free oat bread recipe I used non-fat milk. This time I used water, less salt, and replaced 1/4 cup of the oat flour with 1/4 cup of Expandex. It has the texture of real white bread, but just slightly heavier because it is moister; has a little heavier crust, and is made with oat flour which is a heavy flour. It makes a wonderful gluten-free sandwich bread! When warm or just cooled it has the texture of white bread. Once it cools completely it has the texture of sliced sourdough bread. This bread makes wonderful gluten free bread for sandwiches, especially for kids! Continue reading “Low-Sodium Gluten Free Bread Made with Expandex”

Gluten Free Oat Bread

I created this gluten free oat bread recipe to test out Cream Hill Estates’ Lara’s Gluten Free Oat Flour, but oat bread is already one of my favorites.  Oats are known to lower cholesterol, as well.  In a gluten-free diet we need fiber wherever we can get it, therefore, this is a good choice in a gluten free bread.  It is of medium weight, not as light as I wished for, but I will work on perfecting this recipe.  It is moist, though, which is what I was hoping for.  Enjoy!

Seasoned Gluten Free Croutons

I am about to make a meatloaf muffin recipe that calls for Stove Top stuffing mix. Since Stove Top does not make gluten-free stuffing I am making my own homemade seasoned gluten free croutons recipe. You can use these croutons in gluten-free stuffing, as well, with or without the seasonings. I hope you find this recipe useful. My husband who gladly uses gluten croutons, likes these better! Tomorrow I will post the meatloaf muffin recipe using these gluten free croutons. They are going to be so cute, individual meatloafs! Continue reading “Seasoned Gluten Free Croutons”

Yeast-Free Gluten Free Focaccia Bread

This gluten free focaccia bread is commercial yeast-free. If you are allergic to yeast you may try substituting the apple cider vinegar with a bit of 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar. I haven’t tried it myself, but any high acidic ingredient will do, lemon juice, etc. This is a hearty recipe, much like regular focaccia. If you’re looking for something lighter, which contains yeast, try my newest Gluten Free Focaccia Bread Recipe. Meanwhile, enjoy!

Gluten Free Biscuits

I really wanted to make gluten free biscuits a little healthier than the traditional recipes. I did not use corn starch in this recipe, therefore it is corn-free, depending upon which margarine you use. I used Smart Balance Spread versus the traditional butter. I am looking forward to trying one of the Earth Balance Spreads, too. Other changes I made were substituting agave syrup for sugar; and instead of using buttermilk I used non-fat Greek yogurt. This recipe is not dairy-free due to the Greek yogurt, but Greek yogurt is more easily digested compared to regular dairy products. If you haven’t had biscuits since you started your gluten-free diet I believe you will find these biscuits very delicious! They are definitely lighter than the gluten version I used to make. I hope you, your family and friends enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Biscuits”

Gluten Free Brioche

Gluten Free Brioche Buns

Brioche is reminiscent of the first breads ever made. When Marie-Antoinette said, “Let them eat cake!” she was referring to a bread much like brioche, in between an egg bread and cake. I watched Martha Stewart make brioche buns on her Friday, April 30, 2010 episode, and I just had to figure out a way of making a gluten-free brioche. With a few alterations I had much success! They rose very nicely. This gluten free brioche recipe is a sweet, buttery, spongy egg bread and is like nothing I have ever eaten – an experience everyone should have at least once. This recipe is much faster to make than typical brioche. You do not have to wait several times for the dough to rise, especially the one you wait for overnight. No one would ever guess this is a gluten free brioche, as it does not taste grainy. You may serve it as a dessert or with a meal just as you would serve corn bread. Brioche is very popular in New Orleans. Continue reading “Gluten Free Brioche”
