1-Ingredient Gluten Free Buckwheat Bread

This gluten-free bread is made from one ingredient and has an amazing texture that is so similar to bread made with wheat flour. The bread is also flourless, vegan, and naturally oil-free. 

When I saw a video of this amazing flourless buckwheat bread, I knew that I had to make this recipe and share it with you. Don't let the word buckwheat fool you into thinking that this bread has wheat in it as buckwheat is naturally gluten-free and safe for those with wheat allergies.

 I do not know who first developed the recipe for buckwheat bread made with whole buckwheat and little else, but they were a genius. This one-ingredient bread is amazing and has a nice soft texture that is hard to find in store-bought gluten-free bread. Of course, the best part about this bread is you won't have to shell out an arm and a leg to buy gluten-free bread at the store.

Gluten-Free Bread Made with 1 Ingredient: Buckwheat

This wheat-free bread is made with one simple ingredient, 2 if you count the salt, 100% buckwheat. So you are creating a bread that has ingredients in it that are good for you. Try saying that about most gluten-free bread that you buy. Buckwheat is delicious and nutritious.

Is buckwheat gluten-free and safe for celiacs?

Yes, buckwheat is gluten-free. Buckwheat, also called beech wheat or kasha, does not contain any wheat or gluten. 

 Despite the name, buckwheat is not closely related to wheat—buckwheat isn’t even a grain. Instead, buckwheat is a flowering plant related to leafy vegetables like rhubarb and sorrel. The name buckwheat comes from the resemblance of its small, triangular seeds to larger beech tree seeds.

Ingredients Needed

+ Buckwheat Groats

+ Salt

+ Water

Make sure to use hulled buckwheat or buckwheat groats in this recipe and not buckwheat flour. If you are not familiar with buckwheat groats or have no clue where to find it in the store, keep reading. Buckwheat groats is a whole grain that is often used to make hot cereal. So look for buckwheat groats in the cereal section near the oatmeal. Some stores may have this grain in the gluten-free section. You can always purchase buckwheat groats on Amazon.

Plan ahead

While this gluten-free bread recipe is easy to make, you will need to soak the buckwheat for several hours. I like to soak my buckwheat overnight and start making the bread in the morning. Then the bread batter will have to ferment for several hours.

Steps to make the bread

1. Rinse the buckwheat ~ To remove any residue

2. Soak the buckwheat ~ Place in a bowl with water, cover, and place in the fridge for 4 -24 hours

3. Drain ~ Do not rinse as the goo is needed for the success of this bread

4. Process the buckwheat ~ Add salt and water to make the bread batter

5. Let the batter sit ~ This will take another 12 -24 hours 

6. Bake the bread

7. Slather on the vegan butter and enjoy!

Amazing texture

 If you like bread with texture, you will love this bread. This is a dense chewy bread that will remind you of whole-grain bread with nuts and seeds. This bread is great for toasting and avocado toast. If you love seeds in your bread, you are going to love this bread. 

Add toppings

To make this bread even more amazing, sprinkle some seeds on top of the bread before baking. Don't go overboard on the seeds, as too many seeds may weigh your batter down and it may not bake properly.

Some seed options include:

- Sunflower Seeds

- Pumpkin Seeds

-Chia Seeds

- Sesame Seeds

- Flax Seeds

- Poppy Seeds

I am so glad that I have stumbled upon your post since I just found out that I am gluten intolerant. The sad part is -- it is quite challenging to find gluten-free bread in my area so, I guess I start making my own. Thank you for sharing the recipe. You are a blessing!

In which level of the oven do you put it on? Mine didn’t cook inside. Thanks

Mom Knows Best said...

I placed it my pan in the middle of the oven. Maybe it needed 5 more minutes of baking.

I made this buckwheat bread, and cooked it at the recommended time and temperature, but the middle was still gooey so I put it back in for 20 minutes and it was still gooey in the middle. Gooey, I mean like porridge.
What did I do wrong? I have photos, but there’s no way of attaching it
Thank you, Deborah
