Awesome bread recipe (free from gluten and dairy)

I like trying different recipes to vary flavours and also to find my favourites. You know ….. the ones you tend to make over and over again because they are yummy and easy? In this post I share one of my favourite recipes I found for bread that is dairy-free, grain and gluten-free as well as seed-free. I think I found it in the Sunday Times. It is perfect for those who don’t like the taste of flaxseed in their bread and for those who are dairy intolerant.

Taking gluten out of your diet could be the single best thing you will ever do for your health. It could be that even though you are not aware of it, or tests have proved negative for gluten intolerance – you are still suffering the effects from gluten proteins that are found in all grains (even corn and rice).

Here are some ways that gluten affects people:

  • Joint pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Brain fog
  • Depression and irritability
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Inflammation
  • Balance problems and dizziness
  • Chronic fatigue or Fybromyalgia
  • Miscarriage
  • Skin rashes
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Low iron levels and anaemia
  • Digestive problems and constipation
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • And there are more……

  1. Reblogged this on LiveLite.

  2. I’ve just tried this recipe, and it’s yummy!! Mine came out a bit flatter, as I used a slightly bigger loaf tin. Oh, and I didn’t have honey, so just used a tbsp xylitol instead. Perfect slices.. My first Banting bread. Yay! Thanks for a very cool blog. Loving all the recipes, information and inspiration:)

  3. Very good info. Lucky me I discovered your site by accident (stumbleupon).

    I’ve book marked it for later!
