zucchini buckwheat bread


Once or twice a week I like to bake something with my 2 year old son. He loves mixing, cracking eggs and, of course, licking the bowl. We originally baked this gorgeous buckwheat loaf to have with breakfast one weekend.  This delicious bread is so good it is now the only bread we eat! We bake a loaf every Sunday.

It is absolutely divine…                                                                                                                                                            spread with avocado or sunflower seed butter.      …

Quick Quinoa-Buckwheat Skillet Bread (SRC)

Fresh warm bread is hard to resist and in only 20 minutes.

Natural Noshing

Sometimes a girl just needs some bread. While I eat grain-free dishes at times and I love my veggies, nuts and protein,  I certainly can’t resist a good slice of bread. Whether it’s dense and chewy or light and airy, I will take bread in any form. Of course, finding it and/or making it gluten-free can be a more laborious task.

The Versatile Gluten Free Vegan Flatbread (Also Naan Bread and Pizza Base)

Easy and quick to make naan bread or pizza base. 

Health Room Blog

By Luke Jones. Follow him on Twitter and Facebook. 


I’ve always liked a good bit of bread, especially the flat kind. It’s always been hard to find decent gluten free bread though that’s still pretty health promoting, and doesn’t break the bank. So I decided to come up with my own.

I’ve been working on this one for a while now, and think I’ve just about got it nailed down. Aside from being really easy to make, the great thing about this bread is its versatility. Whether you want a normal flatbread, an Indian naan, or an Italian pizza base; all it takes is a few simple adjustments to the recipe.

Don’t be too worried about exact quantities with ingredients, I’m certainly not and it usually turns out fine…


  • 2 cups of gluten free flour (I use a blend of buckwheat, potato and rice)
  • 1 teaspoon xantham…
