5-Ingredient Healthy Gluten-Free Vegan Bread

5-Ingredient Healthy Gluten-Free Vegan Bread

This 5-Ingredient Healthy Gluten-Free Vegan Bread is quick and easy to make. Made with just five ingredients and water. No raising agents needed, no nasty flours, just pure goodness.

It’s so, so hard to make a good gluten-free bread, especially a healthy one. Oh and vegan as well! A lot of the gluten-free bread recipes I see out there, normally have eggs, like why?

I got fed up with buying trash gluten-free breads, and decided to finally make my own. A super healthy, super simple recipe.

I am never buying gluten-free bread again!

I recommend slicing the bread as soon as it’s taken out of the oven. This is to help it cool quicker and to stop the residual heat from cooking the loaf. It’s great toasted and topped with slices of my Herby Cashew Cream Cheese.
You can make this recipe nut-free just replacing the almonds with pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds.

Let’s get baking, shall we?

    I’m sorry I’m having trouble following the recipe. Are the soaked pumpkin/almonds getting puréed with the quinoa or are they getting sliced and added later? You list them twice so it’s not clear. Does the salt go in the blender because it’s listed after the toppings, does it get sprinkled on top? Thanks. It sounds good and I’m looking forward to trying it.

      Hey! I am sorry that I have written the post so difficult to understand. So, to answer all your questions:

      1. Everything is getting blended once soaked overnight (that includes the salt too) APART from the 4 tbsp of almonds AND pumpkin seeds ( which specify are for the topping) , WHICH are added later! Once the batter is blended, chop the almonds and fold it into the batter. Sprinkle the pumpkin seeds on top and bake!

    I also had questions, but you answered one in another comment above. But, eally hoping you can clarify this, bc every other quinoa/chia recipe soaks the chia and yours doesn’t say to. It would make a BIG difference….

    So do you soak the chia, too? Or just add to blender dry? Thank you! I am disabled and really enjoy the simplicity of your recipes for multiple reasons. I’m really liking your website so far! Wishing you all the best! 🙂

      Hey Nic,

      I do not actually soak my chia seeds, I just add them straight to the blender.
