it is a while since I posted up a new bread recipe. I still bake gluten-free breads from time to time using all sorts of healthy twists; this one was a real winner so I am taking the time to write it up for you. Quantities are approximate because this is how I bake; so long as your end result is a ‘bread-like’ texture before baking you cannot go too far wrong.
1 cup gluten-free jumbo oats
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup potato flour
1/2 cup psyllium husks
1/2 cup flax seeds (whole)
4 tsp baking powder
1 large grated courgette
1/3 to 1/2 half grated pear (not essential – I had this knocking about and needing use)
1 large duck egg (or large hens egg)
some treacle; approximately 1 teaspoon melted into some hot water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1-2 teaspoons ground turmeric
some broken walnuts
small fist of jumbo sultanas and/ or juicy chilean raisins
Skin problems such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, itchy skin, hives, eczema, or urticaria?
Chronic fatigue syndrome or Fibromyalgia?
Autoimmune conditions such as arthritis
Elevated cholesterol or heart disease (may be linked to certain microbes)
Elevated levels of toxic metals?
Depression, anxiety, or other central nervous system conditions
Food allergies, gluten intolerance, or multiple chemical sensitivities?
the list goes on and on and many conditions may seem very far removed from the health of the gut and the functioning of the local immune system in the gut; but they are not! See here for a nice review on Dysbiosis of the gut microbiota in disease
And have you had exposure to any of these?
Antibiotics as a child
Multiple courses of antibiotics as an adult
Severe food poisoning or gastro bugs or gastro-flu
History of foreign travel
Well water or exposure to water of questionable quality
Wow oh wow I hit the jackpot with this invention! I will do my best to recall the recipe for you as I was cooking for a stress break which means I was getting creative paying no heed to the volumes used and pretty much having a dance off with myself and some tunes as I was baking. Yea… laugh all you like; it works!
This bread has no added fats or sugar, contains an abundance of healthy and natural fats, minerals, and fibre and most importantly it tastes great! I mean really great; I cannot stop eating it. So far toppings have included almond nut butter and smoked salmon with mango chutney so it works with a savoury as well as a sweet twist.

A guide that reflects Andrea’s comprehensive knowledge and extensive research into the topic of gluten, the potential repercussions of intolerance, and how to begin healing and continue a healthy lifestyle. Her passion for her work is tangible in these pages.
I just read Andrea Cullen’s E-book and I can now say that it is the go to guide that I will use with clients. It’s practical and sympathetic to the challenges of gluten-free living while also dispelling many of the myths around this increasingly relevant topic. After 3 years of living “primal” I can say that removing gluten from the menu has been part of the process for me being the healthiest, strongest and happiest I’ve ever been.
Thanks to Andrea and of course Dr Thomas O’Bryan for their efforts in making this health issue known and providing a working solution. I have had several athletes eliminate gluten with amazing results. While not all athletes are gluten intolerant there are few who don’t notice becoming leaner and experience faster recovery when they eliminate gluten from their menu. This resource makes the process of educating athletes, clients and their families a much simpler one. Thanks again!
