What I love about this blue cheese pistachio soda bread is the super easy recipe. First, you mix the three dry ingredients. Then crumble the cheese in and add the liquids. At the very end, fold in the pistachios and form a ball of dough. No kneading, no waiting, just baking 🙂 The easiest gluten-free soda bread recipe ever!

This soda bread recipe is made with buttermilk and honey. Both add richness and keep the bread moist. The blue cheese is something I always wanted to try in a gluten-free bread recipe. Since soda bread is a mild tasting bread, I added blue cheese for extra flavourful.




Why add pistachio nuts to gluten-free soda bread?

I wanted to add healthiness to this bread. Pistachios are amazing! These small green nuts are loaded with nutrients and are low in calories. Pistachios have only about 159 calories for 49 pistachios, 6 grams of protein, more than most other nuts, 3 grams of fiber, and rich in copper, vitamin B6 and phosphorus.

However, I like to serve it with extra cambozola cheese and cherry tomatoes as an appetizer. This bread goes exceptionally well alongside light soups and salads. I hope you give this gluten-free soda bread a try. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!


  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend with xanthan gum, I used this one
  • 2 1/4 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1 tsp. Sea salt
  • 5 oz. blue cheese, roughly chopped or crumbled. I used cambozola
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Using a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt
  • Add roughly chopped or crumbled blue cheese, and using your fingers, work into the flour until the cheese is well coated with the flour
  • Stir in honey and buttermilk, and mix until just combined. Do not over mix, or the bread will become dense. Fold in the pistachios
  • Line your working surface with parchment paper and lightly dust it with flour. Transfer the dough onto the paper and dust with more flour. The dough will be sticky. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball and place it in a 9-inch springform pan. Slice a cross on the top and bake for 35 - 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
