It’s My Mission To Help You Simplify & Organize

Your Grain-Free Lifestyle!

I remember how much I struggled when I was new to the Grain-Free Lifestyle in 2012. I also remember how wonderful it was to have Grain-Free cookies that Christmas. Those cookies made me feel normal.

To help you simplify and organize your Grain—Free Lifestyle, I’d like to give you a copy of my cookbook 7 Simple Grain-Free Recipes.

Inside you’ll find recipes for fast mac’n cheese, pizza, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies that get rave reviews! While the recipes are simple, they give you the feeling that you aren’t missing out. They’re some of my favorite recipes for sharing.

Okay, it looks like bread…but since it’s free of grains and allergens…What’s in it?

Can you believe this is bread is grain-free & allergen friendly?

I love it when people ask me this question!

Of course we’ll be using only the best ingredients. You guessed it, Unicorn Farts! I get asked what ingredients I can possibly cook with so often, I can’t resist!!

Back to the real ingredients. We aren’t using wheat, eggs, dairy, corn, soy, potatoes, or grains. We’ll use other ingredients like coconut flour, coconut milk, chickpea flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, yeast, cream of tartar, baking soda and sugar.

We know what’s in the recipe…how do we make it?

We’ll heat the milk in a sauce pan. Dissolve the sugar with a whisk and then whisk in the coconut oil.

It’s extremely important that we allow the the milk, sugar, and coconut oil to cool before we add the yeast.

I find it easy to use candy thermometer to check the temperature of the coconut milk. It’s important to wait until the milk has cooled to between 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit before we add the yeast. If the liquids are too warm, we’ll kill the yeast and make a brick instead of bread! (Yes, I’ve done this by accident, because I am that special. Now I use a candy thermometer to keep this from happening.)

We’re going to use a stand mixer to knead the dough. We’ll grease the loaf pan, transfer the bread to the loaf pan. Allow the bread to rise and then bake it for 45-55 minutes.

The result will be a delicious loaf of sweet breakfast bread perfect for toasting, breakfast sandwiches, or for French Toast!

Best Grain-Free Breakfast Bread (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Allergen Friendly)

A sweet yeast bread made without grains or other allergens. Perfect for toasting, breakfast sandwiches, or French toast.
Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Vegan
Servings 20 slices


  • Stand mixer
  • Liquid Measuring Cups
  • Dry Measuring Cups
  • whisk
  • Measuring Spoons
  • loaf pan (I use a stoneware pan)
  • 1 Candy Thermometer (to measure the temperature of the milk so you don't kill the yeast
  • 1 2 Quart Sauce Pan
  • 1 Serrated Bread Knife


Wet Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Coconut Milk (in the carton, not canned).
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
  • ¼ Cup Sugar I use beet sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
  • ½ Cup Chickpea Flour

Dry Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Grain Free Flour
  • teaspoons Xanthan Gum
  • ½ teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda


  • In a 2 quart sauce pan, heat coconut milk until steaming. Turn off heat and whisk in sugar until dissolved. Whisk in coconut oil. Cool until 110°F.
  • Transfer coconut milk, sugar, and coconut oil into the mixing bowl for your stand mixer. Sprinkle yeast over coconut milk mixture. Allow yeast to rest for 5 minutes. Whisk.
  • Sprinkle chickpea flour over the top of yeast mixture. Using whisk, mix chickpea flour into coconut milk. (sprinkling the flour, lessens the possibility of clumps. you can sift the flour if you like)
  • Add grain-free flour to mixing bowl, then insert mixing bowl into stand mixer. Using dough hook, mix flour into bowl on the lowest speed.
  • When grain free flour is well mixed into bowl, it will look like a batter and not a dough. Evenly sprinkle xanthan gum, cream of tartar, and baking soda over the top of bowl. Mix on lowest speed 2 minutes. Mixture will become thick and doughy.
  • Increase speed to 2, knead 9 minutes. While dough is kneading, grease a loaf pan.
  • Transfer dough to greased loaf pan. Allow dough to rise 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit while dough rises.
  • Bake 45-55 minutes. Bread is done when it has a golden appearance. Remove and cool completely before slicing.


For a sweeter bread with a denser more biscotti like texture, use 1/3 cup coconut oil.

How To Make Grain-Free Breakfast Bread


Why Should I Bake Bread?

  • It’s Delicious! I have a hard time with the taste and texture of commercially available gluten free breads. Baking your own means you are in control of the flavor and texture of the bread!
  • Homemade bread is the freshest bread!
  • The Grain-Free breads I bake are the only ones I’ve found that are free of the top allergens and free of grains! So It’s the safest for me!
  • You save money! -this bread costs about $5 per loaf, Grain-Free bread that’s free of some allergens is more than double that!
  • Texture–The crunchy crust and soft center can’t be found in a pre-packaged bread.
  • Availability--you’ll have bread when I want it. You’re not tracking down a loaf of bread at stores that may have it or not. You know how hard it is to find allergen friendly foods. I’m done spending my Saturdays going to 7 stores only to be out of luck!
  • I know exactly what’s in this bread! No additives, no preservatives, just fresh ingredients I feel good about cooking with!
  • Freshness–-Enjoying freshly baked bread is an experience like no other!
  • I can Break The Recipe as I like! Try using coconut sugar or cinnamon in this bread! Like I said at the beginning of this post, this bread started as a recipe for something else. It would be great to roll out and use for a sweet filled bread.

How Hard Is It To Make Bread?

Making bread isn’t as hard as you think. As long as you have a stand mixer to do most of the work for you, and a thermometer to measure the temperature of the coconut milk, you can do this! Really!

Let’s break down the steps:

  • Heat the coconut milk, sugar, and coconut oil.
  • Let cool to 110 degrees Fahrenheit, transfer to mixing bowl.
  • Sprinkle the Yeast over the top of the liquid. Let stand.
  • Whisk in chickpea flour. Add the grain free flour blend.
  • Sprinkle the xanthan gum and cream of tartar, and baking soda.
  • Mix on lowest speed 2 minutes
  • Knead for 9 minutes
  • Rise 20 minutes
  • Bake 45-55 minutes

The same as with anything we do for the first time, there are some tricks to making bread, but you can do it! You’ll get better with practice and you’ll know exactly what you’re eating. And of course, you’ll be able to Break The Recipe exactly as you like! I can’t wait to hear how your bread turns out. Reach out to me on social media or leave a comment here to tell me about your baking!

What Does It Mean To Break A Recipe?

Let me explain. I take traditional recipes and break them, making them free of grain, dairy, egg, gluten, soy, and other allergens.

How do I do this? Lots of experimentation, changing one ingredient at a time until I get mouth watering results that we can enjoy!

Today’s recipe started out as a traditional recipe for crescent rolls…and after breaking it several times it became a sweet breakfast bread. Look at this bread. Doesn’t it look good enough to eat?

How exactly did that happen? I started by replacing the flour with my grain free flour blend, the egg it called for with my egg replacer, and after a few tries….we have a delicious sweet bread which is excellent for toasting!

Bake it in a loaf pan or as a mound. You’re guaranteed to enjoy this bread!

For an extra filling breakfast enjoy it with some of my Just Like Eggs!
