This gluten-free bread is made with a combination of oat flour, rice flour, and flax meal. Mixing flours will yield the best texture.


Main ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour

  • 1 and 1/2 cups brown rice flour

  • 1/2 cup flaxseed ground into meal

  • 1 and 1/2 cups water

  • 1/2 tablespoon Gefen Yeast

  • 1 tablespoon Manischewitz Honey

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

  • extra flour of choice as needed to incorporate into dough so that it will hold its shape and for handling: about 1/4–3/4 cup

  • 1 egg white or 3 tablespoons Haddar Egg Whites, for wash

  • sesame seeds


Prepare the Bread


In a bowl, mix flours, flax, and water and cover with a damp cloth. Set aside for 12–24 hours.


After this time, soften yeast in honey, oil, and water. After yeast is softened, stir in the salt and then pour the mixture into the soured dough. Mix well.


Then, using extra flour for handling, shape dough into French bread loaf and place on a greased cookie sheet. Brush the top of loaf with egg white, cut three diagonal gashes along the top, and then sprinkle with sesame seeds.


Rise for 35–45 minutes and then bake for 45 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
