Where We Use Simple Ingredients And Techniques

How do we get these ingredients to become bread?

Great question! I’m a food nerd and I love talking about ingredients and how they work together.

The chickpea flour, tapioca flour, and coconut flour work together to replicate white flour. Then we’ll add a little xanthan gum, some leavening agents, and bake our bread in bread tubes so they have a beautiful shape!

How Hard Is It To Make Gluten-Free Garlic Bread?

Let’s Take A Closer Look At Our Ingredients

Grain-Free Flour Blend,

This takes the place of white flour in our bread. We blend it from three main ingredients: chickpea flour; tapioca flour; & coconut flour. While all the flours are gluten-free, chickpea gives us protein, tapioca gives us starch, and coconut gives us fiber. This and a little xanathan gum and we can create breads which just look and taste like the real thing!

 Xanthan Gum

The closest I’ll ever get to baking with unicorn farts, xanthan gum makes the magic happen! It thickens, it emulsifies, it foams. It creates structure and allows the CO2 pockets created by the cream of tartar and baking soda to remain after the bread is removed from the oven.

The most frequently asked question about xanthan gum is—“Does it contain: dairy, soy, wheat, or corn?” These are the most common ingredients uses in creating xanthan gum. So people are right to ask. But I have found Authentic Foods Xanthan Gum, a brand that is free of all these allergens! It’s made from cabbage. I haven’t had anyone tell me they dislike it. It’s high quality, allergen friendly, and it gets the job done!


Known for brining out flavors, salt is an essential nutrient we need in moderation. If you are concerned about salt intake, take the salt shaker off the table, and salt your recipes in the kitchen.

Baking Soda–what would a kitchen be without baking soda? Make sure to have a separate box or jar for the fridge and another for baking. In this recipe, baking soda combines with cream of tartar to help our bread rise.

Cream of Tartar

-another leavening agent, this recipe uses cream of tartar to in combination with baking soda to help our bread rise without yeast.

Olive Oil

Olive oil has such a rich delicious flavor. Salads are loaded with leafy green vegetables which contain fat soluble vitamins. Our bodies cannot access these vitamins without healthy fats like olive oil.

Dried Parsley

Known for its gentle versatile flavor, parsley also aids in digestion.


What kind of grain-free flour are we using?

Click here for the link to the blend I use. Blend it up and bake like normal! No more keeping 17 flours in the cupboard and having them expire before you use them.

Will it taste like chickpea or coconut?

Chickpea and coconut are both distinct flavors, but they cancel each other out. You’ll get a neutral slightly sweeter than white flour flavor.

Why does my bread have a bitter taste?

Brand new baking soda has a bite to it. If you are using new baking soda, use 2 teaspoons instead of 1 tablespoon.

What if I’m allergic to garlic or onion?

Season your bread as you would like! The best recipe is the one that you can enjoy safely. Try some salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings. The possibilities are endless when you Break The Recipe!

Why do we bake the bread tubes vertically?

Keeping the bread tubes vertical while they bake in the oven allows the bread to rise up the tube. If the tubes are laid horizontally, the bread will expand horizontally and we won’t get beautiful shape we’re looking for.
