You would never know that this Olive Oil Cheese Bread is gluten-free. The bread texture is soft on the inside, not crumbling and has a perfectly crispy crust. Nothing beats a homemade freshly baked bread, especially when it is healthy and tastes this good!

What make this a good Olive Oil Cheese Bread?

This gluten-free bread is made with heart-healthy olive oil and high-fiber flaxseed. For added deliciousness, the bread has melted cheddar cheese throughout.

The flours and starches used in this gluten-free bread recipe are rice flour, sweet sorghum flour, potato flour and two starches – tapioca and corn starch.

The mix of the two starches keeps the bread light and the crust perfectly crispy.

The olive oil cheese bread slices beautifully and makes excellent sandwiches. Another way to serve this healthy bread is a starter dipped in balsamic vinegar and good quality extra virgin olive oil.

If you are looking for a delicious gluten-free bread with health benefits, this is the bread for you. The moist and light bread lightly flavoured with melted cheese is sooo good!

I hope you give this gluten-free Olive Oil Cheese Bread a try. I promise you will not be disappointed. This bread is always a huge hit at our house. After all, who doesn’t love melted cheese with bread?

What I love about this gluten-free bread is that it freezes well. Once the bread cools, you can freeze the second loaf for up to three months.

However, from my experience, there are no leftovers. This hearty, healthy gluten-free bread is super addicting, and the two loaves go very quickly. Enjoy!
