Embark on a culinary journey that not only satisfies your taste buds but also nurtures your well-being with our Oven-Baked Gluten-Free Bread. This bread is a testament to the belief that good food is the cornerstone of good health. It’s crafted with a blend of nourishing ingredients, each selected for their health benefits and flavor.
At the heart of this recipe is psyllium husk powder, a powerhouse of fiber. Psyllium husk is renowned for its ability to aid digestion, regulate blood sugar, and lower cholesterol levels. When baked into our bread, it not only gives a delightful texture but also turns each slice into a gut-health enhancing treat.
We’ve chosen cassava flour and brown rice flour, both gluten-free options that are kinder to your digestive system compared to traditional wheat flour. For those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease, this bread is a game-changer. It brings back the joy of savoring a warm, freshly baked loaf without any discomfort.
The inclusion of baking soda and sea salt ensures that each loaf rises beautifully and has the perfect balance of flavors. Honey, a natural sweetener, adds a touch of wholesome sweetness while also bringing its own set of health benefits, such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
To activate our bread, we use dry yeast and warm water – a classic combination that guarantees a fluffy texture. The warm water not only activates the yeast but also ensures that the dough has the right consistency.
But that’s not all. We elevate the taste with crumbled feta cheese, which adds a creamy, tangy dimension to the bread. Feta is also a great source of calcium and protein, making our bread even more nutritious.
A dash of apple cider vinegar not only aids in the rising process but also introduces probiotics, promoting gut health. Lastly, dried oregano isn’t just a flavor enhancer; it’s packed with antioxidants and has antibacterial properties.
Our Oven-Baked Gluten-Free Bread is more than just a treat for your palate; it’s a gesture of care for your body. Every ingredient is thoughtfully chosen to ensure you’re not just eating a slice of bread, but also reaping health benefits with each bite. Enjoy it toasted with a drizzle of olive oil, or as a base for your favorite sandwich. It’s not just food; it’s nourishment for your soul and body.

Oven-Baked Gluten-Free Bread
- 3 tbsp psyllium husk powder
- 2 cups cassava flour
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast (1 packet)
- 1 ½ cups warm water (around 110°F)
- ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- apple cider vinegar
- In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in the warm water. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, or until it becomes frothy.
- Combine the psyllium husk powder, cassava flour, brown rice flour, baking soda, and sea salt in a large bowl.
- Slowly add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until a dough forms. If the dough is too dry, add a little more warm water.
- Fold in the crumbled feta cheese and oregano, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
- Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
- Preheat your oven to 450°F. Place your Dutch oven, with the lid on, in the oven to preheat as well.
- Carefully remove the hot Dutch oven from the oven once the dough has risen. Transfer the dough to the Dutch oven (be careful, it’s hot!).
- Cover with the lid and bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove the lid and continue baking for 15-20 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool before slicing.
