I hear from celiacs, gluten-intolerant, and wheat intolerant folks over and over how much they miss just good plain bread. Most gluten-free bread available in the stores is expensive, lacking in whole grains and fiber, needs to be kept frozen, and needs to be toasted to be edible. Most of it is just not very good. Many of us moms just want to be able to make easy, healthy lunches for our families and miss the ease of sandwiches. Today I bring you an easy to make, delicious, healthy, gluten-free, whole grain, rice-free bread that has the taste and texture of “regular” bread, and isn’t expensive! Can I get an AMEN?!
A couple of years ago, my local gluten-free store, Jake’s Gluten Free Market, started carrying this new line of flour and bread mixes called Manini’s. They started making and selling bread made from their mixes and I couldn’t believe how good it was! Unfortunately, at $7 a loaf, I knew I couldn’t afford to buy it for our family all the time. Thankfully, the staff at Jake’s was willing to share how they made it, just following the directions on the Maninis Classic Peasant Bread Mix, so that any of us customers could make it at home too. As you know, making homemade bread can be quite time-consuming. I spent the past year tweaking their recipe to get it to turn out just right in the bread machine, and according to our family’s preferences. I finally got it just perfect and am ready to share the recipe with you!
It takes me literally 10 minutes of work to make this bread in my bread machine!
Really… 10 minutes, and it costs me about $4.50 a loaf! I store this bread at room temperature in a container on my counter, and just slice as I am ready to make sandwiches. Our whole family loves this bread, and when we have gluten-eating guests, they do too! When my in-laws are visiting, they like the bread so much that I end up making a loaf every day so there is enough for everyone for toast in the morning and sandwiches at lunch. I don’t mind since it is so easy!
