When it comes to a bread making process, there’s nothing better like warm, flavorful, and fresh-out-of-the-oven bread. Even if it’s gluten- or grain-free. I’ve been sharing my favorite finds on Pinterest since yesterday so I hope you enjoy this round-up post. [no_toc]
Homemade gluten-free bread is substantially more delicious than store-bought varieties.It isn’t loaded with preservatives and is pretty inexpensive to make, especially if you have a bread maker. The only downside is that homemade gluten-free breads are more likely to fail baking and oftentimes people get moist and hard loaves that are impossible to eat.
Fear not. I’m going to share 5 tried and tested recipes that will teach you how to bake soft and airy gluten-free bread with that perfect buttery crust in your bread machine.
1. Incredibly Homey Gluten-Free Bread
The classic recipe but with a modern twist. Despite being gluten-free, this bread reminds me of that delicious homey-like bread we used to buy a decade ago when local manufacturers knew nothing about the harsh preservatives.
If you’re new to a gluten-free diet world, this bread will make your transition easier for your taste buds.
2. Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread
This one is for you, sandwich and toast lovers. Just one look at the picture and you’re ready to pull out your bread maker right away.

3. Gluten-Free White Rice Sandwich Bread
Although this white rice sandwich bread resembles coconut flour bread, it’s a lot tastier and healthier.
Not only is this bread gluten-free, but it also contains superfoods like chia seeds and golden flax meal that are crazy good for your overall health and your waistline as well. Rice flour is rich in protein – a key ingredient of most diet-friendly and low-calorie recipes.
4. Gluten-Free Flaxseed Bread

A mind-blowing mix of Italian herbs makes this bread unbelievably flavorful and delis. It goes well with a myriad of family dishes, including soups, chili con carne, sautés, salads, stews, and barbecues.

All these gluten-free breads are jam-packed with nutrients that will help your body function better. Be careful though, it’s so tempting to eat a loaf as soon as it comes out of the bread maker.
Sure, they all can be baked in the oven, but who wants to spend their time for mixing, kneading, greasing, and watching the rise and baking processes? Let the machine do that work for you. All you need to do then is just slice and enjoy!
