Gluten-Free Challah Bread Recipe with Oat and Quinoa
2 hrs 45 mins
Servings: 1 loaf
- 1 package about 1 tbsp. active dry yeast
- 1 ¼ cups warm water
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cups vegetable oil or grapeseed
- 1 tsp cider vinegar
- 2 tsp sea salt;
- 1 tbsp xanthan gum
- 1 cup tapioca flour/starch
- 1 ½ cups oat flour
- ½ cup quinoa flour
1 Place yeast and honey in the bottom of a large bowl. Cover with warm water and whisk until yeast is dissolved. Let the yeast foam and bubble for 1-2 minutes then mix in eggs, oil and vinegar. Continue to add in flours, salt and xanthan gum. Mix well.
2 Pour mixture into a lightly greased 9x5 bread loaf pan smoothing the top. To achieve a braided challah, you will need to use a braided loaf pan. Gluten-free bread dough does not braid well. Cover with pan with clean towel and let rise for 1 ½ - 2 hours (preheat oven 15 minutes before it’s done rising).
3 Remove towel and bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove to cooling rack and let cool before enjoying.
