Gluten-Free Bread (Bread Machine Recipe)

I am always on the lookout for a good gluten-free bread recipe! I have been making this recipe for a few months now and it never fails! I love putting all of my ingredients in my bread machine and letting it do the work for me – are you up for that? I thought so. This bread has a good hearty texture and slightly nutty taste. It is perfect for my favorite cinnamon honey toast in the morning or a yummy open-faced avocado sandwich for lunch or a veggie panini for dinner.

Can man or woman live by bread alone? Well, when it is this good I think maybe I could…

1 2/3 cup warm water

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with 5 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder

3 tablespoons applesauce

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

3 3/4 cup gluten-free flour

1/2 cup hazelnut meal or almond meal

3 tablespoons coconut sugar

1 tablespoon xanthan gum

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon yeast

Layer ingredients in the order listed in bread machine bread pan – liquids on the bottom, dry ingredients next, with the yeast being the last ingredient on top. Run the bread machine on the “Gluten Free” cycle. Most bread machines will beep after the knead cycle to allow you to remove the mixing paddle before rising and baking. I recommend removing the mixing paddle so you don’t have to worry about pulling it out of your baked loaf of bread! After your bread is baked, remove it from the bread pan and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack. Slice and serve immediately OR wrap each slice in food wrap or parchment and freeze for later use. (Adapted from Recipe Source: Gluten Free & More)
