Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, and Lactose-Free Bread

Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, and Lactose-Free Bread

* 1 1/2 cups of hot (not boiling) water

* 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (or honey, you sweeten to taste and add cinnamon too)

* 1 tablespoon of Redstar nutritional yeast (if you want a bread that rises more like the one in the middle of the photo, you can use traditional yeast, the bread made with nutritional yeast is the one on the left)

* 3 cups of gluten-free flour

* 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed (I use a 50/50 mix made with ground chia seeds, it's up to you)

* 1 tablespoon of xanthan gum

* 1 tablespoon of baking powder (gluten-free and aluminum-free)

* 2 tablespoons of olive oil

* 1 1/2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar

* 4 tablespoons of applesauce

Add the honey and nutritional yeast to 1/4 cup of warm water. Let sit.

In another bowl, mix flour, ground flax seed, xanthan gum and baking powder.

In a third bowl, mix olive oil, apple cider vinegar and applesauce.

First, mix the liquids together. Then, make a well in the flour mixture and pour the wet ingredients on dry ingredients. Do not mix right away, add the rest of the warm water (11/4 cups) first.

Now mix with love. Turn on your oven to the lowest temperature allowed. Oil the bottom of your cake pan and place parchment paper at the bottom. Pour dough into pan.

Proof 1 hour, while the door is open (I put a wooden spoon in the door to keep it open).

After an hour, remove the bread out of the oven. Raise the temperature to 400 degrees and once the temperature is reached, bake the bread for 30 minutes.

Yum!!! It is a perfect snack for children, a great little dessert with a drizzle of maple syrup and a paired perfectly with your meals. It freezes well and you can use the rest for gluten-free breadcrumbs. Hooray for health!
