Recipe Allergy Key:

While I have tried to eliminate or identify all potentially gluten-containing ingredients, I may have missed some. If you are unsure if an ingredient or product contains gluten, please check the label.

I’ve also created a Pinterest board featuring these 12 bread recipes. Enjoy!

I’ve made this bread many times using an all-purpose gluten free flour and it has never let me down. Gluten free breads can dry out fast, but the apples keep this bread moist and flavorful. Plus, the crumb topping makes it extra special, perfect for the holidays. GET THE RECIPE

3. Bloomin’ Onion Bread

7. Rustic Artisanal No-Knead Bread

Since gluten-free breads have no gluten to bind the dough, kneading is unnecessary, making it great for a no-knead recipe. Try it with the Kind Arthur bread flour. Anna’s recipe was originally adapted from Jim Lahey’s recipe of the Sullivan Street Bakery in New York. GET THE RECIPE

8.  Easy Naan Bread – Quick No Rise

Oh, I love Hawaiian rolls! They’re so addictive and hard to give-up when going g-free. So far, my favorite gluten-free bread flour is from King Arthur. The mix comes with a yeast packet and includes salt & sugar, so reduce the brown sugar in this recipe to 1/4 cup and eliminate the salt. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop-out the dough & just shape with wet hands. Gluten-free bread is also exempt from the rise-shape-rise rule. Just mix the dough, shape, let rise once & bake. GET THE RECIPE

11. Pumpkin Bread Rolls with Cinnamon Butter

Did you make pies this holiday season, only to have a little scoop of cooked pumpkin leftover? I did too. This is a great recipe for using up that extra pumpkin. While you’re visiting, check out her FREE e-cookbook Favorite Desserts. GET THE RECIPE

12. Gluten-Free Oatmeal Bread (vegan)

Searching for a gluten-free, vegan bread recipe? This is a hearty quick bread that also works well as an everyday bread that can hold-up to toasting. How could it get any better than that? Well, it’s another Michigan recipe. Michigan girls can cook. It’s how we stay warm all winter 🙂 GET THE RECIPE
