Super Easy, no-knead Tear and Share Gluten Free Garlic Bread. Soft, garlicky, herby, buttery, and so perfectly flavored. Serve warm right out of the oven with an extra sprinkle of flaky sea salt for a soft, flavorful bread that melts in your mouth. This garlic bread is beyond basic.

What is tear and share gluten free garlic bread?

It’s called “tear and share” because you can tear off individual portions from the bread, making it easy to serve to a group. This gluten free bread tends to be softer and fluffier on the inside and is similar to traditional pull-apart bread, except it is shaped differently.

Things you will need to make tear and share gluten free garlic bread

Dry ingredients: gluten free measure for measure four, tapioca flour, and almond flour. Almond flour can be replaced, which I will discuss later. Then, it’s just basic pantry ingredients such as eggs, olive oil, quick-rise yeast, sweetener, salt, pepper, and warm water.

The flavor of this bread comes from the garlic butter wih parsley.

The garlic butter is super simple. Butter, garlic, parsley, lemon zest, and salt and pepper.

You will need one more ingredient: one tablespoon of cornmeal. The cornmeal is used to layer the base of the pan. This will give the garlic bread a lightly crisp bottom. So good!

The best part about this tear and share gluten free garlic bread recipe

This may surprise you. Your hands don’t touch the dough, and no kneading. Great right?

The recipe is super quick. Mix the dry ingredients with wet and rest the dough for 30 minutes, allowing the moisture to be absorbed by the gluten free flour.

STEP TWO

Once the dough has rested, brush the pan with garlic butter and sprinkle the pan with cornmeal. Then, use a cookie scoop or large spoon to drop mounds of dough about 1/4-inch apart on the baking pan and brush with the remaining garlic butter.

STEP THREE

Proof the bread by covering the pan with a damp towel and placing it in a warm place. I always use a slightly warm oven to do this. The dough rises beautifully in the oven.

STEP FOUR

Bake the garlic bread. When the bread is done, invert it onto a wooden board or cooling rack and serve. I place it in the middle of the table for everyone to tear their pieces.

best substitute for almond flour in gluten free baking

Almond flour is popular in gluten-free baking due to its texture and mild flavor. Still, you can use several alternative flours depending on your dietary restrictions and flavor preferences. Here are some common substitutes for almond flour in gluten-free baking:

Hazelnut Flour: Hazelnut flour has a similar texture and flavor to almond flour and can be used in a 1:1 ratio as a substitute.

Cashew Flour: Cashew flour has a mild, slightly sweet flavor. You can use it in a 1:1 ratio to substitute almond flour.

Pecan Flour: Pecan flour has a rich, nutty flavor. It can be used in a 1:1 ratio as a substitute.

Sunflower Seed Flour: Sunflower seed flour is a good nut-free alternative. It has a slightly earthy flavor and can be used in a 1:1 ratio.

Oat Flour: Certified gluten-free oat flour can be a good substitute if you have nut allergies. It has a mild flavor and can be used in a 1:1 ratio. You can make oat flour by processing oats in a food processor until you reach a flour texture.
