Gluten Free Bread in a Pinch!

Peak Performance ChiropracticFoods and DietGluten Free Bread in a Pinch!

Some of you know I am gluten free due to a dietary intolerance. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and great “finds” when it comes to living gluten free. So I was stumbling around Pinterest today after getting an email with some recommended recipes in it. I came across a recipe for quick and easy gluten free bread that you can make in the microwave. The best part? Its QUICK and EASY plus you can make one serving at a time!

Check it out here on the OneGoodThing Website

I’ve copied the recipe here for you, if you want easy access:


Gluten Free Bread In Seconds!
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp water
  • 3 Tablespoons buttermilk – or 3 Tablespoons milk or milk substitute (almond, rice, soy) plus 3/4 tsp vinegar
  • 1/3 cup gluten free flour blend OR gluten free baking mix (omit the baking powder)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar (1 tsp honey, agave, molasses or 1 Tablespoon applesauce would also work as a sweetener substitute)


  1. Combine the wet ingredients first and then incorporate the dry ingredients. Stir until well combined.
  2. Pour the mixture into a sandwich-shaped storage container (do not put the lid on.)
  3. Put the container in your microwave and cook for 85 seconds (cooking times may vary).
  4. Transfer the bread onto a rack to cool completely, then cut into two sandwich slices (or just eat it like it is!)


The only thing I am not sure about: I am not familiar with this bread/sandwich shaped storage container. I am very much opposed to microwaving food in plastic containers in the microwave, because of the potential for toxin leach (BPA etc), so I would need to find out what this is made of. Perhaps a good alternative out there – a small glass baking dish, for example! Anything square, rectangular or even circular would work in my book!

Are you or a loved one gluten free? Try this recipe with me – Let’s see what we think! I can’t wait to try it!
