- 1/2 cup sorghum flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch or flour
- 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
- 1/2 cup teff flour
- 3 heaped tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 3 tablespoons ground flax seeds +9 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil or olive oil
- 2 large eggs (room temperature)
- 1 & 1/4 cups warm water
Step 1 – Prepare the Dry Ingredients
Firstly, in a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients: sorghum flour, tapioca starch/flour, flaxseed meal, teff flour, coconut sugar, ground ginger, cream of tartar, baking soda, sea salt guar gum and xanthan gum. Mix well until well combined.
Step 2 – Prepare Wet Ingredients
Next, in a separate mixing bowl or measuring jug. Combine ground flax seeds and water to make a “flax egg” mixture. Let it sit for about five minutes until it thickens up like eggs.
After that, add apple cider vinegar with warm water to that bowl/measuring jug and whisk together with Flax egg mixture until everything gets combined.
Step 3 – Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients
Make a well in between the center of the dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients into it.
Then add melted coconut oil/ olive oil and lightly beaten eggs into that mixture. Mix well with a hand-held mixer until everything combines entirely.
Step 4 – Bake
Prepare a 9-inch baking tin or loaf tin with parchment paper. Pour the bread batter and level it out in the pan.
Let the Batter sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
Preheat your oven at 180°C for about 10 minutes.
2 minkutes before baking timing starts, pour water on preheated oven. Don’t burn yourself.
Place the baking tin in preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until slightly golden from the top and firm edges pulling away from sides.
Insert a toothpick to see if it is baked entirely through; if toothpick comes out clean, take it off from the oven.

Substitutions and Variations
When it comes to substitutions and variations for this gluten-free, yeast-free, and dairy-free multigrain bread recipe, the possibilities are endless! Here are some ideas to get you started:
1. Flour: This recipe calls for a blend of tapioca, sorghum, and teff flours. However, you can use any gluten-free flour blend that you prefer. Just make sure it is certified gluten-free and contains xanthan gum or guar gum.
2. Oil: We use a combination of coconut oil and olive oil in this recipe, but you can use any neutral-flavored oil such as vegetable, grapeseed or sunflower oil. If you’re looking to reduce fat content, going 100% olive oil or completely replacing olive oil with more coconut oil are also good options.
3. Eggs: The eggs in this recipe help to give structure and texture to the bread dough. If you need to make it egg-free then replace each egg with 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons of water. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before using in place of the eggs.
4. Sweeteners: This bread recipe uses sugar as a sweetener but if you prefer less processed sugars like honey or maple syrup then feel free to substitute them instead.
5. Multigrain mix-ins: To add more flavor and texture to your bread, mix in some additional multigrains like quinoa flakes or chia seeds before baking.
6. Spices: Add your favorite spice like garlic powder or even cinnamon for additional flavors that will make your bread taste unique!
Remember that these substitutions may affect the final product’s density, rise time or moisture content so be mindful while experimenting with these changes. With any substitution or variation on this versatile recipe always know that there’s no right and wrong answer, just see what works best for your taste buds!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
Once you’ve baked this delicious gluten and yeast and dairy-free multigrain bread, you will want to know how to store it properly to ensure it stays fresh for as long as possible.
To make this bread ahead of time, bake it the night before or even a few days in advance. Wait until it cools completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store it at room temperature. This will help to maintain the texture and flavor of the bread.
Storing your bread in an airtight container can also help preserve its freshness. If you’re planning to eat your bread over a longer period of time, consider freezing it for later use. Simply wrap the bread tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place it in a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag before popping it in the freezer.
When you’re ready to serve your bread, allow it to thaw completely before reheating. This can be done using a toaster oven or regular oven set at 350°F (180°C) for 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, you may choose to reheat individual slices in a microwave oven for 10-15 seconds.
Remember that gluten-free breads are typically denser than traditional wheat-based breads, so they might not have the same fresh-from-the-oven softness on day two as they do on day one. However, if you follow these storage and reheating tips, you should be able to extend the life of your gluten-free multigrain loaf and still enjoy its great taste and texture for days to come.
Tips for Perfect Results
Achieving the perfect texture and flavor in a gluten-free, yeast-free, and dairy-free multigrain bread recipe can be a real challenge. As a nutritionist and food blogger, I have experimented with various ingredients and methods to come up with these tips for perfect results every time.
1. Use a combination of gluten-free flours: Instead of relying on one type of flour, try mixing different gluten-free flours like sorghum, teff, and rice flour to give your bread a wholesome flavor and nuttier texture.
2. Add guar gum or xanthan gum: These binding agents help improve the elasticity and structure of the dough, thus making it easier to handle without compromising its taste.
3. Include flaxseed meal for added fiber: Incorporating flaxseed meal not only adds nutritional value but also contributes to a softer texture in the baked bread.
4. Activate yeast correctly: Since this recipe employs instant yeast instead of active dry yeast, there is no need to activate it beforehand. Simply mix it in with the other dry ingredients before adding wet ingredients.
5. Use cider vinegar instead of cream of tartar: Cider vinegar works as an excellent acid replacement for cream of tartar while giving the bread an added tangy taste.
6. Let dough rise twice: To achieve maximum lift and fluffiness in your bread, let the dough rise once after mixing all ingredients together, then deflate it gently before shaping it into a loaf and letting it rise again in its final form.
7. Don’t overmix: Gluten-free dough requires less kneading than regular wheat dough. Over-kneading can result in tough and dense bread; that’s why always mix until just combined.
8. Bake at the right temperature: Bake the bread at 375°F (190°C) for around 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Keep an eye on your oven as gluten-free bread can burn easily on the surface.
By following these tips, you’ll achieve a perfect multigrain bread that is both healthy and delicious. Happy baking!
