Whole Grain Vegan Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread

It has taken me a few years to make the perfect vegan gluten-free sandwich bread. Previously the breads were either gritty and crumbly or just not tasty. This Whole Grain Vegan Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread is perfect. It is reminiscent of a honey wheat bread I used to bake weekly. It is soft and holds up to sandwich fillings and slices nicely.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c sorghum flour
  • 3/4 c GF oat flour
  • 1/2 c tapioca starch
  • 1/2 c potato starch
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt

In a medium bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. Set aside.

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 c almond milk, unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1 1/2 c gluten-free sourdough starter
  • 3 tbsp psyllium husks
  • 3 tbsp golden flaxseed (whole)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, plus more for greasing the pan

Combine all the wet ingredients together into a large bowl. Set aside. Grease an 8×4 loaf pan.

Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir together. The batter will start to thicken as your stir. Transfer dough into the prepared loaf pan.

Note: You want to combine the dry and wet ingredients fairly quickly. Otherwise the wet ingredients start to thicken too much and makes it more difficult to combine the wet and dry ingredients together and the dough tends to toughen up.

Smooth out  the surface of the dough. Make sure to press the dough into the pan so there are no holes or gaps.

Oil the surface of the dough and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise 3-6 hours, until the dough has risen as least 1/2-inch above the pan at its peak.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Remove plastic wrap. Place loaf into oven and promptly close the oven. turn oven temperature down to 350 degrees.

Bake the bread for 55 minutes. Allow the bread to cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan. After cooling the pan for 5-10 minutes remove the loaf and finish cooling on a rack.

Let the bread completely cool before slicing.

Note: I purchased the culture to make the gluten-free sourdough starter from        culturesforhealth.com.
