Yeast Free | Gluten Free Bread Recipe

calendar Jun. 26th, 2011 by

Since many people who are yeast free also have a gluten intolerance, I wanted to post a recipe for a gluten free flour mix to go along with a yeast free bread recipe.

This is a new yeast free, gluten free bread recipe that I am working to refine for inclusion in the Yeast Diet Cookbook & Meal Planning Guide so your feedback and comments are appreciated.

Yeast Free Flour Mix

- 1 cup brown rice flour

- 1 cup sorghum flour

- 1 cup buckwheat flour

- 1 cup millet flour

- 1-1/3 cup tapioca flour

- 2/3 cup white rice flour

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use a large whisk to thoroughly blend the flours. Store in a container with a tight fitting lid, or in a large Ziploc freezer bag in the freezer.

Yeast Free Healthy Loaf

- 3 cups yeast free flour mix (listed above)

- 2 tablespoons Rumford brand baking powder

- 3 teaspoons guar gum

- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

- 1-1/2 to 2 cups distilled water

- 3 eggs, separated

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl, and mix well. Separate the eggs. Beat the whites to stiff peaks that are still a bit soft, and reserve. Add the yolks to the 1-1/2 cups water and mix well. Add the guar gum to the egg and water mixture, and use an electric mixer to blend until smooth. The mixture will thicken quickly, due to the guar gum.

Gradually add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients. Add up to 1/2 additional cup of distilled water, if needed. When the mixture is smooth, gently fold in the beaten egg whites.

Grease and flour a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan. Use cold pressed olive oil and a couple of tablespoons of the flour mix. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes, on the middle oven rack, or until a skewer or toothpick comes out fairly clean, but it may have a few crumbs clinging. Cool in pan on a rack for about 20 minutes. Then remove from pan and leave on rack until completely cool.

    I am going to try this recipe. I need to purchase some of the ingredients first and then I will let you know how it turns out.

  2. Darlene Says:

    I would like to try this, but I’m wondering if anyone knows what it is best to replace the rice and millet flours with. I am not gluten intolerant but cannot have wheat, rice, millet, yeast, sugar, etc. etc. Lots of fun, I know.


  3. Sharon Says:

    I will try this and would be very tempted to make it without Rice flour but will if that will help you the most. I use sorghum with success and use garbonzo/fava with great success. Could I use any sub. or would you rather I use it as the recipe calls. Let me know by email if you really don’t want any substituions to this. Just made a great yeast-free almond flour bread. Been making alot of sugar free, dairy free wheat/glutten free fun things with almond and coconut flours.(but only use the nut flours for special things.) Is your cookbook coming out in hardcopy, would really be interested in that.

  4. Mike Says:

    Thank you for the recipe. Before I try this, I would like to know
    more about the buckwheat and millet, because in most candida diet they are not allowed.
    God bless you.

  7. Sue Says:

    Just replace it with either sorghum or buckwheat or maybe chickpeas-bean flour?

  8. Jan Says:

    When baking, I sometimes substitute ground almond meal for some of the flour.
    I haven’t tried it with sandwich bread; only cakes, muffins, and sweet breads.

  9. Quita Says:

    Hi Whitney – I was pretty excited about the bread but i’m alergic to egg whites. I’m doing so well on being yeast free but boy, if i have something that has sugar in in, my tummy hurts. I had watermelon and maybe it’s not on the list of ok foods. I need to read everything again.
    Keep up the good work.

  10. admin Says:

    Hi Sharon – I would love your feedback and any substitutions you come up with as I would really like to include several versions of gluten free flour mixes in the cookbook. We are working on the hardcopy version of the cookbook right now so I am working out several more recipes including bread recipes for the final version. Let me know if you have any original recipes you would like to submit and I would be happy to pay you for them. ~Whitney

  11. admin Says:

    Hi Mike – I tend to rely on The Yeast Connection Cookbook by Dr. William Crook. In it he lists both of these however some people still have a sensitivity to them so you will have to substitute for another flour if that is an issue for you.

  12. admin Says:

    Thanks Janet! Blessings to you! ~Whitney

  13. Katy Says:

    Im going to try this recipe with egg replacer as I’m allergic to eggs. I usually use an orgran bread mix as it has a yeast free option and this works fine. I also use their pizza and pastry mix as again it’s yeast free.
    Going to try it first with rice flour but again I limit rice due to allergy but allow it on rotation, if I react will replace probably with gram flour.

  14. Pat Says:


    I am so excited to get an email from you, Anyway, I am wondering, what in the world is Guar Gum. It sounds awful and was wondering where I would find it. Is Sorghum Flour a type of molasses by product? I am off the diet right now and suffering terribly so am trying to get back on it but as everyone say’s, it’s the bread that does me in, so I need a really good bread receipe and I feel I could do this diet in a snap. Anyway, thanks again for contacting me and hope to hear from you soon.

  15. robin Says:

    Hi Whitney, curious, the recipe sounds great as we really miss bread, however, their doesn’t seem to be any fiber in this recipe. Do you think we could take 1/3 c of flour out and add 1/3 cup ground flaxseed?

  16. admin Says:

    Hi Robin – you can certainly try it and see. I would love to hear how it turns out! ~Whitney

  17. admin Says:

    Hi Pat! You should be able to find Guar Gum at your local health food store or online at as well. You can find some good info about Sorghum flour at this link:

    Best of luck to you! ~Whitney

    Hello evryone, I’m excited about this new website with very interesting information. Wanna know how I came across it? I am reading the Bible (old testament) and noticed that everything had to be yeast free. According to the book of Leviticus, the reason God preferred ‘no yeast’ was because it was healthier. I’m 39 yrs old and have always been overweight. Over 300 to be exact. I took the ‘yeast’ test and failed with a high score of 91. I need help. So, looking into all this info given, I feel it all makes sense both bibically and scientificlly. I do have a question. (Maybe I over looked it) but if I order the book, will it tell me how to do this diet?? Or is it just a cookbook? Thanks for any answers available. –Maribel

  20. Pat Says:

    Hi Whitney,

    I am inquiring about yeast extract and a label that states there is less than 2% sugar and deyhdrated cane sugar. Do I ignore these labels or avoid them.

    Thanks for any info you can give me and I hope to hear from you soon.


  21. admin Says:

    Hi Pat! On the yeast free diet you want to avoid all forms of yeast as well as sugar sweeteners so yes I would definitely avoid those items to stay on track with the diet. Blessings.


  22. Renee Veksler Says:

    Hi Whitney,
    I’ve been experimenting with recipes using items suggested as ideal for me, for the Candida diet. I’d like to share them as they’re pretty good. And it would be fun to hear others’ recipes too, after you’ve screened them.
    Pancakes: 3/4 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 mixture of coconut and almond flour, 1 Tablespoons flax meal, 1/2 tsp. aluminum free baking powder, 1 egg, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup water. Fry on med-low heat with a little cold pressed coconut oil. Top with almond butter and/or cashew butter.

  23. Renee Veksler Says:

    Here’s a recipe for white sauce. Great on grean beans.
    Put in blender: 8 cloves of roasted garlic, water, cottage cheese, and a little salt. Make it as creamy as you like. The garlic I roasted in coconut oil in oven at 300 degrees until soft.

  24. Angelique Says:


    Wow! I’m amazed by the options.

    I’ve recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and over ten years ago Narcolepsy, and I’ve been extremely angry and frustrated with the lack of compassion from doctors, and lack of understanding from peers.

    I’ve decided to attempt a New Life Diet in the new year, starting with giving up gluten and yeast. Planning to buy a breadmaker and beginning my journey there. Do you have any advice for a first timer? Hopefully I will find days that I am strong enough and awake enough to follow a recipe from beginning to end, so I find the simpler the better, as in my case I do not have the stamina to complete some tasks.

    It’s encouraging to see that I’m not alone trying to get back to basics in such a high paced, malnourished society…

    Hi ADB! Excellent job getting together a plan and tackling it – generally that is the hardest part. Sorry to hear about your struggles but there are lots of options for yeast free / gluten free eating.

    My best advice is to plan ahead and don’t let yourself get hungry before trying to think about what to eat. If you have your meals planned in advance and can stay on schedule it makes everything much easier.

    Best of luck you you! Blessings,

    Sounds delicious – thanks for sharing Renee!!!

  27. Desiree Says:

    An acquaintance of mine has been telling me for years of her suspicions that I am gluten & yeast intolerant. She is very knowledgeable of the subject and all that she told me made sense. I recently went on a strict vegetable, fruit, beans, tofu diet for a while and felt sooooo rejuvenated and clean within. I decided to purchase your e-book and give this yeast free candida diet a try and am very excited to do so. I live in southern california with not much access to many health food stores. I was able to find a handful of the flours you use, but am not having much luck with the rest. Is there a website that you could suggest or store that you know of that ships these types of ingredients? Many of the ingredients you use are foreign to me but I’m more than willing to start the adventure of getting to know them better and building a better relationship with them for the sake of my body functioning at its capabilities.

  28. admin Says:

    Hi Desiree! Most health food stores have a wide range of flours to choose from. Alternatively you can find them online at or other outlets. Glad you are seeing such great results so far!



  29. Elaine McBane Says:

    Hi Whitney
    Thanks for all your work in helping us with our yeast and gluten problems. You are a great help.
    Is there anything that can be used instead of guar gum? As of yet I can’t fine Sorghum flour. Would you suggest just using extra of the other flours?

    Keep up the Good Work,


  30. Elaine McBane Says:

    Keep Up The Good Work for us Yeast and Gluten Problem people..

  31. admin Says:

    Hi Elaine! Thanks for the note! You can find any of the ingredients on if you have trouble finding them locally. If you do change up the ingredients you just may have to play with the quantities a bit and see how it turns out.

  32. Brittany Says:

    Would this work for the chicken pot pie crust in your cookbook? It is one of the recipes my husband misses the most since we went gluten free. We are trying the egg replacer too as my daughter is allergic to eggs. Thanks!

  33. admin Says:

    Thanks Brittany – I don’t know why it wouldn’t. I wanted to come up with a flour alternative for those avoiding gluten. While it may not be exactly the same it should work although I have never tried it that way. I would love to hear how it turns out! ~Whitney

  34. Kathy Says:


    My diet is pretty much grill chicken salad with oil and vinegar. Is your cook book includes gluten free? On top of candida, I’m allergic to wheat, white flour, egg white, amaranth, nuts, and handfull of other.


  35. admin Says:

    Kathy – the cookbook has many recipes that are gluten free but wasn’t written as a gluten free cookbook. You can pretty easily substitute the gluten free flour mix for any recipes that call for flour and make substitutions for any items you have sensitivities to based on your specific needs. I also have a 2 week money back guarantee so you can check it out and make some meals to ensure it will meet your needs. Hope that helps!

  36. Brittany Says:

    I tried the recipe with egg replacer. It turned out okay, but the batter was much too thick and I was a little too nervous to add more than 1/2 cup extra water. I think it needs another liquid if eggs aren’t used.

  37. Brittany Says:

    I should have said this earlier, but I wanted to respond to Kathy. I have a huge laundry list of food allergies and this is one of the only cookbooks I can use. I still have to be a little creative and substituting rice noodles, Spectrum spread shortening, and egg replacer gets me pretty far. Living Without is a great magazine for people with food allergies and all recipes are gluten free.

  38. admin Says:

    Thanks Brittany! ~Whitney

  39. Joanne Cook Says:

    Tried this recipe and found it crumbled and fell apart. I noticed no oil was used.
    Has anyone else experienced this?
    The flavour was off too. thanks Joanne

  40. Chrissy Says:

    Bakes up a fine loaf. I did make a few tweaks to suit what I had on hand:

    -Used my own flour blend (brown rice, tapioca, potato starch), but replaced 1/2 cup of the flour with flaxmeal
    -Used xanthan instead of guar
    -Added 2 tsp brown sugar (balances out the salt)

  41. Grateful Mom Says:

    Angelique, you should look into the “Feel Good Cookbook” by Jonell Francis. Try looking at her website also. Jonell had fibromyalgia and could help you tons! I was greatly helped by her knowledge and experience when I was nursing my little boy who was scratching himself to death. Look into it. It will reduce your recovery time in a big way!

  42. Mark Martin Says:

    Thank you for sharing this interesting and informative post. I’ll be looking forward for your other posts as well. Keep it up! Nice post! I’m so glad to get to visit this site. gluten free sandwich bread are perfect for Gluten intolerant diets.

  43. rebecca Says:

    I would love your bread recipe
    thanks Rebecca

  44. Linda Whitford Says:

    Recently tests show issues with yeast, almonds, wheat, eggs, beans, mushrooms and shellfish. Now what…. I knew I was allergic to egg yolks, but now have to give up whites as well. Lactose intolerant – so used unsweetened almond milk and love almonds. A lot of things recommended as substitutes not available in my locale.

  45. Dora Says:

    Well, I made this recipe today and tried to make a sandwhich out of it. The bread fell apart. It was very earthy tasting. I will try something other than buckwheat the next time.

  46. Cate Says:

    Hi. I have just been tested for food intolerances so I am a newbie at this. I can’t have gluten, millet, corn, oats, amaranth, yeast or any fermented foods, citric acid, soy, or rice. Almonds, coconut, and dairy are out too. I need a bread substitute but I am at a loss as to what to do. Could I use Glucomannan (Konjak root) instead of the Guar gum? Baking powder has corn starch in it. Would baking soda be okay to use instead? What could I substitute for the rice flours and millet? Everything else in the recipe will work okay. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks!

  47. Valerie Says:

    I would love to make this! Unfortunately, we are super strapped at the moment. If you’ve got any other recipes that don’t require a bunch of specialty flours, I’d love to have them. We’re trying to go gluten-free, yeast-free, dairy-free, sugar/sugar sub-free, etc. Hope to try this someday but can’t currently afford to buy all these flours. Thanks! Happy New Year!
