Finding a gluten-free artisan bread recipe that is simple to make and tastes this good is not easy. Before I decided to make the bread, I tried various combinations of flours and seeds until finally, I got that perfect gluten-free artisan bread.

This is a rustic bread packed with seeds and gluten-free grains. The bread has an earthy flavour which comes from using buckwheat flour, the crust is crispy, and the texture has a perfect crumb.

The recipe is super simple. First, you mix the dry ingredients, then wet and mix everything. Finally, you add the pumpkin seeds and allow the bread to rise in a warm place. Then bake and cool, done!

When it comes to gluten-free baking, it is crucial to use the right combination of flours to get the best results. In this gluten-free artisan bread recipe, I used rice flour, tapioca flour, buckwheat flour, sesame seeds, flax seeds, and pumpkin seeds.

      This was delicious!! My batter spread far too much while rising and I was worried it would not turn out but I gently reshaped it. I then baked it on the parchment paper in a 7×11″ glass pan to contain the spread. The final product was shaped like foccacia but had superb flavour, texture, and moistness -like regular artisan bread. Everybody loved it!!! (even non-GF). The resulting shape was great for appies. Thank you for a fab GF bread.
