Grain-Free Bread


Over the weekend I made full on love in the kitchen with my brand shiny new slow cooker. I actually made this in it and man, oh man was it wicked awesome. What that meant was that come Sunday night- dinner was ready and I didn't have to do a thing.

With free time on my hands- and 20 minutes was all I needed, I made a little update to this awesome chickpea breakfast bread recipe, which you first learned about when we used it as a grain-free / gluten-free pizza crust. We had no leftovers.

On this fine Tuesday- here is a quick and easy grain-free bread recipe for you.

Garlic Chickpea Bread

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Yield: 16 slices

A delicious gluten-free bread for my gluten-free friends.

  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds, ground in a coffee grinder
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano

Make It Like So
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 and lightly oil a 9 x 12 baking dish and sprinkle with flour.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Pour batter into baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.

    This looks so easy I'm actually tempted to make it. I'm usually too intimidated to bake bread. I wonder if it will work in a cast iron skillet?
  2. I see there's no leavening in this, so it must be a fairly dense loaf, right?

    What happens if you scale back on the garlic?

    Delicious! :) I'm gonna try to use parchment paper next time as it was a little hard to get out of the pan (which I did coat with oil and flour) :(!

    How did you cook this in your slow cooker?

    I made this to go with dinner. It was simple to make and tasted great!! I didn't have any sunflower seeds so I used pumpkin seeds instead. I also used parchment paper and when it was done simply lifted it out of the pan and onto a chopping board to cut. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Sounds great! I am looking for a grain free, low carb, nut free bread. Can it be made in a loaf pan? Bake longer? Thank you.
