Accessories you need



Using a cast iron pot such as a Le Creuset and a wicker proving basket gives you the best hard crispy crust with a GF recipe. 

You can switch around your favourite seeds to use instead of these as its a pretty flexible recipe - use quinoa/ chia/ sorghum......

The honey gives it a nice sweet flavour, but you can replace with coconut sugar if vegan and use chia seeds in place of eggs. 

This does take time to rise so don't panic if it takes time especially over winter.

This is loosely based off the Chia Pepita GF loaf in the basic cookbook but changes made due to dietary needs/ flavour.

  • Great recipe - thank you This is the best GF bread...

    Great recipe - thank you! This is the best GF bread I've made so far with a nice texture although a little gritty. I didn't have tapioca or arrowroot so substituted white glutinous rice, which I milled in the TM. I found the cast iron pot method confusing (probably just me) so I put the dough in a loaf tin to rise and then put it straight in the oven. Makes a good sized loaf.

  • You could use chia seeds as

    Submitted by eurobodallathermo on 6. October 2016 - 21:56.

    You could use chia seeds as it is also a good binder. I personally can't tolerate chia so choose to use psyillium instead. Otherwise you could try with more linseed meal/ linseeds as it is also a great binder to hold it together. Enjoy!

    This looks like a nice variation to try.  Can you suggest an alternative for the psyllium husks?
