This is the VERY BEST food processor gluten free bread recipe. The sandwich-like texture can make any gluten free sandwich stand out because you can’t tell the bread is gluten free. The crumb is moist, tender, and compact and will hold your favorite veggies, meats, and spreads. The crust is firm but not crispy, just like a sandwich bread should be.

The ingredients

The ingredients in this food processor gluten free bread recipe are classic, except for one ingredient.

For the flour, I used a gluten free flour blend with xanthan gum to keep this recipe simple. However, I wanted to give the bread healthiness and flavor that you would find in wheat bread, so I added ground flaxseed and psyllium husk powder. These two naturally gluten free ingredients will provide great bread texture and flavor. Not like the starchy, crumbly bread you would find in your local supermarket.

The ingredient that gives the bread a good rise beside the rapid-rise yeast is egg whites. You can’t omit the egg whites, or the bread will be dense and heavy.

In addition, I added 1/4 cup of healthy seeds. The seeds are optional but they add hearty flavor, nutrition, and fiber. You can use any seeds you have on hand. I used pumpkin, chia, and whole flax seeds.

4 Tips to make the best gluten free bread using a food processor


Don’t scoop the flour 

Measuring flour correctly is a critical step when baking. Don’t scoop from the bag with your measuring cup when measuring flour. This can compress the flour up to 25%, and you will get dry, dense, heavy bread. Use a spoon to scoop flour into the measuring cup and level off with a knife

However, it is best to weight the flour using a kitchen scale

Room temperature

For yeast recipes, bring all wet ingredients, such as eggs or vinegar, to room temperature before adding them. Yeast needs warmth to grow; if your ingredients are too cold or hot, it may prevent full yeast growth. 

Warm rising place 

An excellent method for letting yeast bread rise is using the oven method. Turn on your oven to 200º F for 5 minutes, then turn it off. The oven will create the perfect environment for rising yeast dough.

The bread is fully cooked

The best way to tell if the gluten bread is done is to insert an instant-read thermometer into the bottom of the loaf (but not touching the pan). The temperature should be approximately 205-210º F when it is done.

By following these 4 tips and the recipe, will guarantee the perfect gluten-free bread made in a food processor.

Thank you Marsha, I am so happy you enjoyed this bread.


Amazing GF bread! This was my first recipe to try making GF or any bread after many years and I'm sticking with this recipe. I have an old bread machine but too bulky and big for the counter. My 1st loaf stuck to the loaf pan badly though I used olive oil to coat. Next time I got a pullman pan and used parchment paper (great price on Temu) and found online how to fit the paper into the pan. This turned out great ... popped right out of the pan. 2nd time, though, I didn't bake it quite long enough and it was slightly uncooked in the middle but still toasted up well. I've used GF flour without xanthan gum and added 2 1/2 tsp. of xanthan gum. I put sunflower seeds, a TBL of chia seeds and some walnuts into the dough and also on top. Bread is moist, a little chewy and toasts beautifully with a bit of crusty outside and moist inside. 4th time I'm going to cut down slightly on the salt, but my husband and I are hooked on this wonderful bread which is so much better than most of the small expensive lackluster supermarket gluten free loaves. Thanks so much for this recipe!


Thank you!


Francine, it goes in the oven. The oven should be barely warm.


Hi Kristina, I am planning to make this bread tomorrow morning and my question is of the oven method for the dough to rise, do you put it on top of stove or in the oven? Thank you


yes Lynne, psyllium husk can also be ground into a powder


Getting ready to make this but my psyllium is whole. Can I just grind it?


Monique, the egg whites give the bread a better rise. But, yes you can use whole eggs


yes Pam, you can.


Jan, I find it blends better.

Jan Cusano

Why do you have to use powdered psyllium husk instead of the regular one?


Can I use plain white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar?


Could I use whole eggs instead of just the egg whites?


1 cup is 8 ounces. When measuring flour, fill the measuring cup with a spoon then level it off with a knife. Do not dip the measuring cup into the flour or you will end up with too much flour, thank you.

Hi, I am from the UK, I would love to try this receipe however, could you tell me how many ounces or grams are equal to 1 x cup please?
