Gluten-Free Healthy Millet Bread
This gluten-free healthy millet bread recipe is definitely one to try! I love baking bread and the aroma that comes from the oven while baking. Nothing is cozier, especially on a grey day, you know…clouds and rain. Baking bread at home just makes everything better 🙂
a healthy millet bread…
I call this gluten-free bread a “healthy millet bread” The bread is packed with whole-grain millet, sorghum flour, psyllium husk, arrowroot starch and heart-healthy olive oil. It is super healthy! The millet makes the bread taste so good. The way bread should taste!
This gluten-free bread is excellent for sandwiches, or toast it for breakfast with butter and jam or avocado slices. There are many options to use with this bread. What I love about this bread is, it toasts beautifully to a golden colour and perfect crispness.
So I know I named this “healthy bread,” but besides that, you can use this bread for just about anything. The other day I made this millet bread into garlic bread slices. If you want to make them, it is easy.
First, lightly toast the bread slices. Then, brush one side with a mixture of salted butter, olive oil, minced garlic and chopped parsley. Place in a preheated oven at 400 F and bake until the bread is golden brown, about 4 – 5 minutes. YUM! The garlic bread goes exceptionally well with our 30-minute stovetop lasagna or spaghetti Bolognese.
While buying gluten-free bread from a supermarket may be easier and taste ok…this gluten-free millet bread is fresh, made with nutrient-packed ingredients, and you can’t beat the texture. This has become one of my favourite gluten-free bread recipes. This millet bread you can use for savoury sandwiches or with sweet spreads.
This healthy millet bread recipe is naturally gluten-free. The ingredients such as millet, sorghum, arrowroot, and psyllium husk are gluten-free and have numerous health benefits. The bread is moist on the inside and has a light crust.
I am super excited about this gluten-free healthy millet bread. I know we have numerous healthy gluten-free bread recipes on our blog, but they are all different. This bread recipe is also different. First, it toasts beautifully and has a perfect bread texture.
It took me a long time to develop a bread recipe that toasts this well. And, the bread tastes like bread, not a sponge or dry crumbs. If you are looking for a healthy bread recipe but do not like seeds and nuts, this bread is for you.
what is millet?
Raw millet looks like birdseed. When ground into flour, millet is pale yellow colour and is ideal for gluten-free baking. Millet grows primarily in India, Africa and Russia.
health benefits of millet….
This tiny whole grain is packed with protein, nutrients and antioxidants. It has been documented that it may help lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
nutrients in sorghum…
Sorghum is another nutrient-packed grain that is naturally gluten-free. Some vitamin and mineral highlights are B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and zinc. And sorghum is an excellent source of antioxidants, protein and fiber.
arrowroot starch is not a grain…
Arrowroot is a root vegetable used in gluten-free baking and cooking—this root, when ground to a powder, is an excellent gluten-free thickening agent. Arrowroot also lightens up the texture of gluten-free baked goods. This root is known to stimulate your immune system and treat diarrhea.
psyllium husk is a must-have ingredient in gluten-free pantry…
I love psyllium husk. This superfood is excellent in gluten-free baking. Psyllium husk is used to retain moisture and help bread from becoming too crumbly. I also sprinkle it over chia pudding, yogurts or add to soups and gravy for extra fiber. 1 ounce of psyllium husk powder has 21.8 grams of dietary fiber. The best part, you can barely taste it. It has a mild flavour of oatmeal.
Difference between psyllium husk and psyllium powder…
They are both made from the same food source. The difference is, the powder is more concentrated nutritionally. You can replace whole psyllium husk for psyllium powder in baking. The ratio is 1 tablespoon of whole psyllium husk to 1 teaspoon of psyllium powder.
I hope you give this gluten-free healthy millet bread a try. We all love different bread textures and flavours. I think this millet bread recipe is a keeper. Enjoy!
