Skip store-bought options, and learn how to make the best homemade vegan gluten free bread recipe with minimal ingredients and simple steps!


Units Scale
  • 2/3 cup warm non-dairy milk (95F to 105F for proofing)
  • 3 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 3 teaspoons white sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups to 3 cups (330 grams) gluten free all-purpose flour (does not contain xanthan gum or other gums) *see notes for other options
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fine kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 to 1 cup warm water + extra as needed (Adjust water amount depending on type of flour used. The consistency should be somewhat sticky but not runny. The more water, the softer the bread.)



Alternative Method – This gluten free vegan bread recipe also works well using gluten free bread flour and baking it in a Dutch oven versus a loaf pan for a crusty bread to dip in soups, etc. You will need 330 grams (2 ¾ cup) of King Arthur Gluten Free Bread Flour. Omit xanthan gum. See blog post for detailed instructions. This recipe makes a smaller artisan loaf, around 8 large slices 

Baking Tips – Use a stand mixer to whisk and mix all the ingredients versus by hand. It’s best to use an all-purpose gluten free flour without any thickeners (xanthan gum or guar gum) and control the amount by adding it separately to the recipe. Our Homemade Gluten Free Flour Blend can be used as a substitute for store bought all purpose flour. Each brand of all-purpose gluten free flour will bake differently. 1:1 gluten free baking flours do not work well in this recipe.
