Superfood Gluten-Free Bread – Healthful seeded vegan bread, high in fiber.
This bread was created when I started an anti-inflammatory diet. Gluten and dairy were the last types of foods I needed to cut down. I was already a plant-based eater but I always had a hard time saying no to a toasted baguette with a slice of cheese (maybe because I am French?!)
This is probably one of the recipes I recipe-tested the most because I wanted it to be perfect. And now I am excited to share it with you because the recipe below makes two loaves of delicious crispy-on-the-edges-and-soft-inside superfood bread!
My favorite things to top this bread with are nut butter, avocado, hummus, fig jam, onion jam…
In the same vibe, I recommend my crackers recipe HEREPrint

The baking soda and apple cider vinegar will help the bread to rise as there is no egg. However it’s not mandaroy and the bread will be just a bit more compact without.
You can make 1 large loaf and not 2 if you prefer. However, I noticed that the bread bakes better when you make 2 loaves. If you do make only 1, lower the temperature and increase the baking time. When you remove the bread from the mold slice it and if the inside is still a bit too moist, either freeze and toast each slice as you eat or put back in the oven for 5 minutes at 350F.
