This gluten-free, yeast-free bread tastes deliciously moist and nutty. You can easily bake it yourself  — we’ll show you exactly how to do it.

This gluten-free, yeast-free bread is the brainchild of Canadian Sarah Britton, who published the bread recipe under the name The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread. We’ve adapted the recipe slightly, but the concept remains the same.  

This healthy loaf is very simple to make. It consists of rolled oats, water, psyllium husks, salt, nuts, and seeds — no yeast or sourdough needed! You can choose whichever nuts and seeds you prefer and tailor it to your tastes. Nuts and seeds that work well include hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, flax seeds, and sunflower seeds. 

When it comes to buying ingredients, always look for organic and regional products. Your personal health will benefit, as will your community and the environment.

Did You Know? Oats themselves are gluten-free, but they often get contaminated during cultivation, harvesting, transport, and processing. That’s why it’s recommended that people with celiac disease use gluten-free oats.
