Baking Gluten Free Bread with Maninis Bread Mix

As a ‘lazy cook’, I look for quick easy ways to make my food.  It is no different with gluten free bread baking.

I get frustrated with all the recipes that call for x amount of this flour, y amount of another ….. I would much rather use a mix.  And honestly, I don’t really like to bake very much, so my husband does most of the break baking!

Recently, we found a new bread mix that we both love (although my husband is not totally gluten free, he does restrict the amount of gluten he eats).

Maninis Bread MixManinis Country Oat Bread Mix makes the tastiest and easiest bread I have baked so far.

If you are interested in the ingredients list, here is what is included in the mix:

Flour blend (organic millet, tapioca, certified GF oat, teff, organic sorghum, organic amaranth), corn starch, certified GF oat flakes, organic cane sugar, GF xanthan gum, Atlantic sea salt.

All ingredients are gluten free and no bioengineering has been used to produce this product.

The package makes 7 loaves, so last us a few weeks!


Maninis Country Oat Bread Mix


  • 7/8 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 3 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 Tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 large eggs (I use egg replacer)
  • 2 cups bread mix


  1. Read the easy instructions on the back of the package!
  2. Although, I would like to note that we found that the bread is done much quicker than the required baking time on the package.

Some of the tips I have learned over the years  about baking gluten free bread:

1. Fluff up flour ahead of time and spoon gently into measuring cups (or you will compress flours).
2. Always use a BLEND of gluten-free flours, each flour offers different flavor and baking properties.
2. Oil (and flour) the bread pans — or do what I do: Line with aluminum foil.
3. You may need to increase baking times compared to gluten breads.
4. Gluten free breads require more liquid — so the dough will be gooey and stickier than gluten bread.
5. One the other hand, breads that sink or are gooey often have too much liquid.
6. Over proofing results in bread rising too high, so might also sink or collapse during baking.
7. Mix all dry ingredients together BEFORE adding any liquid to the mix.
8. Successful Gluten Free baking requires attention to levels of protein, moisture, acid, fat, leavening, and binding!

Gluten Free Bread

Karina is definitely the ‘Gluten Free Goddess’ with her Gluten Free Vegan Bread Recipe below.  She starts out her post telling a bit of her story.  I love the wonderful attitude she describes …. deciding to focus on WHAT she could eat being Gluten Free rather than complaining about what she was missing.  In my case, I grieved over my loss of wheat based bread products, but rejoiced over my improved health so much more!!

Her magic ingredients are sorghum, buckwheat and millet!  Not your typical ingredients used in the store bought varieties of Gluten Free Bread.  Having experiment with Gluten Free baking, I find this recipe to be promising!!  NOTE:  Make sure to read through the entire post as she give tons of extra tips and information after the recipe.
