Love this bread recipe, it is easy to make and you would never know it is gluten-free. By adding chia seeds and buckwheat the bread has a rustic texture with a crispy crust and tastes like a good German rye bread


  • 1 ½ cup water, warm
  • 1 ½ tsp. gluten-free rapid yeast
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free chia seeds
  • 3 cups all purpose gluten-free flour (I use Cup4Cup)
  • ½ cup gluten free buckwheat flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • In a small bowl mix water, yeast and maple syrup and set aside for 15 minutes
  • In a large bowl mix chia seeds, all purpose gluten-free flour, buckwheat flour and sea salt.
  • Add yeast mixture and olive oil to dry ingredients and with spatula combine all ingredients until they are well mixed and become a bread dough consistency.
  • Cover with a dry cloth and let the dough rise to twice its size, should take about 40 minutes, after take the dough out of the bowl and knead for about a minute. Place in a bread loaf pan and cover with a dry cloth for another hour.
  • Then with a sharp knife make 4 slices across the top about ¼ inch deep and place the bread in a pre-heated oven on the middle rack.
  • Bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until the crust becomes golden brown.
  • Remove bread from the pan and place on a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
