I love Gluten-Free Vegan Nutty Bread. I try to make a loaf most weekends. It’s gut friendly, tastes amazing and is so easy to make.
I have tried and tested many gluten-free vegan bread recipes and this is the best. It’s full of flavour, the texture is wonderful (it’s not ‘gummy’) and it is full of nuts, seeds and wholegrains.
It’s also free from added sugar/sweetener free and yeast. What’s not to love?
If you’re used to amazing white sourdough bread this will take a little bit of adjusting to. You can’t really compare this to white sourdough. It’s like comparing a skiing holiday to a lazing on the beach – they’re both fantastic holidays but they’re different, they have different qualities and you love them for different reasons.
This bread makes great sandwiches and is a great side with soups, houmous, salad and as a snack. It’s the perfect comfort food and if you want more recipes to go with this bread (or just more comofort food recipes) click here.

Top Tips – Gluten-Free Vegan Nutty Bread
This recipe uses a 1 kg (2 lb) loaf tin. You can make two small loaves instead, just cook for a little less time.
Using greaseproof paper as a liner for the loaf tin means the loaf won’t stick and you can easily lift the loaf from the tin using the greaseproof paper.
