Oat Bread
I use the dough setting on my bread machine. Put liquid ingredients in first, then wet ingredients, and yeast last.
Check dough during kneading, and add flour or water as needed.
Water 1 1/2 c.
Oil 3T
Oat flour 2 1/2C
Date sugar 1/2C
Arrowroot 1/2C
Guar gum 1T
Salt 1/2 tsp.
Active dry yeast 2 1/4 tsp.
I use the dough setting on my bread machine, then remove dough & put in bread pan, rise 30 minutes, then bake 50 minutes.

The oat bread recipe worked OK for me, would slice for sandwiches. The oat potato recipe is not here yet.

Was the bread fluffy at all? How do you know if the dough needs additional flour or water-whats it supposed to look like? Please email me at mordyybcohen@yahoo.com
ellen
11/27/06
The reason this is a bread machine bread, is that it is rather batter-ish and not like wheat dough. It worked for me just as it was. All the gluten-free breads are heavier than wheat. For additional help, get Bette Hagman's "the Gluten-free Baker". Most libraries have it.

Do you have any recipes that are wheat, soy, barley, rice and potato free. I have a son that is allergic to all of that and a few other things. I have tried using oat flour and tapioca flour, but I still haven't found a good recipe that a 6 yr. old can use for bread. I hope you can help me, I'm at my wits end.
ellen
09/30/07
Luann, do you use corn totillas for roll up sandwiches, breakfast tacos and griddle pizzas? I will look for you, but this is a pretty forbidding list of exclusions bread-wise.
Mike

Hi guys,

Can you send me the website with the wheat/soy/ etc. free stuff. Thanks very much...Or sould you just post the sites?

The local library's Bette Hagman's Gluten Free Gourmet" series is a very good place to start. Beyond that, try a google search on celiac recipes and be amazed.

Russ, Thomas, do look at the Hagman baking book mentioned above. Thomas, good luck- you might also try the Orowheat double fiber bread, really good toast and the fiber moves cholesterol containing foods through the gut faster, therefore, less is absorbed (same effect as the oatbran).

I invented a oat flour crepe/tortilla recipe out of desperation. We are doing an elimination diet and I needed a starch.

2 cups oat flour
2 TBSP oil
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
a piece of hand pureed banana about the size of an egg, or an egg.
Enough water to make a thin batter, much thinner than pancake batter.
Cook in a oiled pan like crepes. Be sure to oil both sides of crepe. It improves the flavor.

You may want to up the salt amount if you use banana as a binder, unless you want a sweet crepe/tortilla. By the way, the banana worked great to bind it all together. I've heard that other dried fruits work well as a binder also. It really needed the binder.

05/08/08
Dianne, you really need a bread machine to do gluten free loaves. Look at breadman and zojirushi with a gluten-free setting on EBay.

I am also diabetic, and I find the new Orowheat double fiber is very easy on my system and makes great crispy toast.

Oat Flour Pizza dough
Can anyone send me a recipe for oat flour pizza dough? I'm assuming you can't use just oat flour but don't know what else to add in. I am wheat free for 6 weeks and sure could go for some pizza! Thanks

The oat flour crepe/tortilla can make a fair mini pizza if rolled a bit thicker before cooking.

WANTED: OAT FLOUR based, wheat-free, simple, bread machine recipe where I can just pour the ingredients into my bread machine, walk away (go to work) and come home to bread--what I got the machine for! Is this possible?!?!

WANTED: the baking science behind why oat flour on its own isn't a straight substitute for wheat flour (I expect the lack of gluten needs a binder, but don't know in detail) so that I and other interested folks can create yummy bread without wheat flour and WITH ease!!!

ellen
02/06/09
Jenni, my gluten free friends tell me that the gluten free bread mixes from Whole Foods are easy to use and good tasting.

There is a gluten free cook who does her bread in the CROCK POT with great success:

crockpot365.blogspot.com/search/label/baking

This is a great site for all kinds of gluten free recipes.

You can also check out Bette Hagman's gluten free cooking and baking books from your library.

As to why you can't bake easily with all oat flour: to rise, the goods have to be able to trap air in little bubbles that hold. Gluten makes these nice stretchy bubbles. If you don't have gluten, you need some nice stretchy gum, which is why you see guar gum or xanthan in gluten-free recipes.

Also, you need one of these stretchy things to hold it together and make it "chew" like regular bread. Otherwise the texture is like a biscuit crumbly.

Hi, good evening. I'm really looking for a yeast free/wheat free oat bread...dunno if it exists at all...I'm on a candida diet and getting really tired of rice cakes :o) I'd be grateful to recieve a recipe.

kind regards

I have gluten problems and need an easy bread recipe using oat flour. Also I have a tortilla press so a recipe using oat flour to make those would be very helpful. If anyone has either of these, would you care to email them to me? Thanks and have a great day!
Robin

Robin, the tortilla recipe is already [posted on this thread. Whole Foods makes a gluten free sandwich bread mix that can be baked in a crockpot, so simple, link is also posted on this thread.
Brigid
07/29/09
Does the oat bread absolutely have to be made in a bread machine? i am in serious need of recipes without wheat, potato, soy, corn or xantham gum, I think that guar is ok. My son was just recently diagnosed with allergies to all of those grains. He does not however, have a gluten allergy. Can maple sugar be used instead of date sugar? He is allergic to cane, haven't tested him for date. The other recipe looked good, but he is also allergic to banana.
ellen
07/29/09
A bread machine is a BIG help with the non-gluten breads, because the doughs don't tolerate handling like yeast breads do. You can often get a very good but on one at a garage or moving sale, or on Craigs list.
Maple sugar should be fine, but also look into honey, agave syrup and the other liquid sweeteners.

Gluten Free Low - Carb Apple Oat Muffin Recipe
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes
Ingredients:
2 cups freshly ground certified gluten free oatmeal (rolled oats)
2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plain, gluten free yogurt
1/2 cup good quality 100% apple juice
2 lightly beaten large eggs plus one egg white
4 tablespoons light olive oil OR canola oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup shredded apple (about one large apple - do not peel the apple)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to sprinkle on muffins (optional)
Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350

Use a clean coffee bean grinder to process 2 cups of certified gluten free oats into oat flour. Depending on the size of your grinder, you may have to do this in batches.
Place oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Whisk to blend.
Lightly beat eggs in a small bowl. Add yogurt, apple juice, oil and vanilla. Whisk to blend and pour into bowl with dry ingredients. Stir to thoroughly blend.
Fold in shredded apple and walnuts. Stir just until blended.
Line muffin pan with paper liners, or lightly grease pan and fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full.
Bake for 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of muffin comes out clean.
Sprinkle hot muffins with cinnamon sugar mixture and allow muffins to cool for about 10-15 minutes before serving.

Tip: Use a cheese grater to shred apple

I am looking for an oat flour recipe for a bread machine. I do not want any other type of flour mixed in. I also like to add: sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and poppy seeds. If I dont use a 1 to 3 ratio of oat flour to wheat flour it doesnt rise! Please help.

Kathy, oat flour alone will not rise, it has no natural gluten and cannot trap the air bubbles. See the gluten free sites recommended for possible additions, (guar gum, xanthan gum) that will mimic the gluten and give a rising potential.

I have been looking high and low for an oat flour bread recipe. The closest substitution to whole wheat (using oat flour) that I've found so far is this combination of flours:

2 parts br. rice flour
2 parts oat flour
1 part buckwheat flour

You can also add flax meal by using 1/2 of the amount of the flour that is the least. So in this case part of buckwheat would be shared with the flax. You will need to still add xanthum gum or guar gum - using 1 tsp/1 cup of the flour combo. I have not tried this combo yet - just got my bread machine this week and I'm still learning to how it works.

Miss breads and other "normal" foods..any suggestions would be helpful!

Eating the same stuff all the time can actually increase your food allergies. Make a list of what you can eat and start rotating, no more than 1 or 2 days on the same food.

Please has anyone got a recipe for oat flour without yeast but with just basic ingredients I have a basic recipe for corn flour but it still disagrees with me,
I usually use the following.

14oz flour (really need to use oat flour)
teaspoon salt
teaspoon baking soda
320 ml goat's milk
2 eggs

I bake in the oven on gas mark 4 for 45-50 minutes.

I have never tried this with oat flour so wonder if anyone has this recipe but with oat flour please.

ellen
08/21/10
You need to add some xanthan gum to this mix, especially with non-gluten flours, or it will come out like hockey pucks.

Do any of the recipes above actually look and feel fluffy like wheat bread?? The gluten free bread I have been buying is heavy, tasteless, or sometimes nasty tasting, stuff.
ellen
09/08/10
Consider ordering a loaf from the little aussie bakery in San Antonio. Then go to crockpot365.com and look at her crock pot loaf. The Aussie bread is light and delicious and the home made one is neither heavy nor nasty.

Was looking for an oat-flour recipe also. Thanks for your websites and information. Here's some info I just learned: anything eaten with sugars can cause food allergies because the sugar prevents the other foods from being able to be digested properly. Try cutting out sugars and a lot of allergies will disappear. www.nancyappleton.com has great info on the effects of sugar in our diets.

I have just learned that I am VERY allergic to Wheat. Therefore, I am completely changing my diet. Can't believe how many things have wheat in them. So I am looking for a good light, bread recipe with Oat Flour. I tried a bread that my hubby brought home made with millet. The earlier discription of boughten breads fits it Perfectly!
Any help you can give me would be VERY much appreciated!
I can see that there are a number of people who are having the same issues as I am. Hope to learn from those of you have tried and WON!

For inspiration, you might order bread from the "Little Aussie Bakery" in San Antonio, Texas. Completely gluten-free, and I have not been able to achieve results as good as theirs yet, despite some efforts.

You might look at the Bette Hagman cookbooks, such as the gluten-free gourmet bakes. Pretty good recipes.

I like left over oatmeal pancakes as a substitute for bread. It's not the same as bread, but is moist and not crumbly like some wheat free breads.
I use 2 cups oat flour, 1 Tbsp egg substitute, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 Tbsp agave syrup, 3 Tbsp olive oil, and enough almond milk to achieve the desired consistency. Mix the dry ingredients first, then stir in the liquids. I sometimes add cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, and raisins or cranberries for a bit of variety.

This site makes me want to cry... We are doing the 6 food elimination diet with my Daughter who is 8 plus anything that she reacted to on her allergy testing.. She has a disease called Eosinophilic esophagitis (swelling of the esophagis) I have spent hours and hours searching for recipes that she can have and this sight gives me hope that I will find something for her to eat besides meat. She cant have wheat, soy, egg, dairy, Barley, corn, peas, turkey, flaxseed, peanuts, tree nuts, so I'm really excited about all these recipes.... I have the xanthum gum, oat, sorgum, and tapioca flour... does anyone have some good recipes involving these items :) Thank you all.... I never knew Allergies could be so hard.... to me your help is priceless even the nutritionist at her dr has had a hard time helping us.

Crystal, has anyone talked to you about the elemental foods (liquid, available in cans), as supplements for her? These would provide a nutritional safety net for her to support growth. You need an expert nutritionist for this, a specialist, not just a local nutritionist.

From your description, it looks like fruits and non-starchy vegetables are safe for her. You would want to include these at every meal.

Also the celiac site will have recipes she can use, although you will have to avoid those with soy or corn. I hope the egg substitute made with flax works for her, this would expand your choices for baking.

Do look at

here ya go craftycookery.wordpress.com/2011/12/31/gluten-free-yeast-free-oat-bread/ use Braggs apple cider vinegar instead of white, due to the corn allergies. white vinegar is not safe for those w/a corn allergy. Use this combo to replace the eggs with:

"2 cups arrowroot powder or tapioca starch
cup non-aluminum baking powder
1 Tablespoon guar gum powder

Whisk together the arrowroot powder or tapioca starch, baking powder and guar gum or xanthan gum powder in a large mixing bowl. Transfer this mixture to a glass jar and shake vigorously so it's thoroughly mixed. Label the jar accordingly.

To substitute for one egg, add 1 teaspoons of Egg Replacer Powder to 3 Tablespoons of water and whisk into a slurry with a small whisk for fork. "

You might need to increase liquids in the bread mix, not sure.

Crystal - we are going through the same thing with my 2-year old. She is allergic to at least 14 foods. We were using Namaste all purpose flour blend. It is gluten free, wheat free, corn free, soy free, dair free, peanut free, tree nut free . . . it's awesome! i can use it to replace regular flour in almost any recipe. My daughter also has Eosinophilic esophagitis. We did try to go the route of the elemental diet, but it was nearly impossible to get the drinks down her. The gastro doctor has thought about a feeding tube. We are hoping to not go that route. Anyway, Namaste is awesome, but it uses rice flour, and we are now suspecting a rice allergy, too. So, for the next 2 weeks . . . no rice. And I used that flour for everything. I make homemade crackers, goldfish crackers, etc. So, it will be a real challenge. Also, Namaste makes a good pizza crust mix, bread mix, brownie mix, etc. Some of the recipes on the bags call for eggs, but you can get around it. For the bread, I uses 1 1/2 T water, 1 1/2 T oil, and 1 1/2 T baking powder. However, I cannot find any corn-free baking powder, so I for every 1 T of baking powder, I use 1/4 T baking soda plus 1/2 T cream of tartar. I have not tried out any of the recipes, but I do have a gluten-free cookbook that offers corn-based, rice-based, or oat-based versions of different things. Kind of cool. It's called "You Won't Believe It's Gluten-Free" by Roben Ryberg. Also, I have not ordered from them yet, but check out Authentic Foods web site. Bob's Red Mill products are not safe for peanut/tree nut allergies. Godspeed! It's hard to do this, but not impossible.

Ashley - thanks for the egg replacer recipe. I used to use Ener-g egg replacer, but it is potato-based, and my daughter can't have that. Can't wait to try this one!

Wow Jenine! Your little girl sounds like my boy. He is now 5 and I think he is outgrowing some of his allergies. I suspect he has a gluten allergy because he isn't growing like his twin brother. The best thing we did was to see a specialist like you have. We opted out of the biopsies, etc. but we got a large scale blood panel showing all the foods he was allergic to and to what degree. We could then formulate a diet that had the lowest amount of allergens. He was allergic to everything but shellfish and chicken.
We were told to keep him on soy milk at 2 years of age as much as possible because even though he was allergic to it his body absorbed the calories from it the best. He also did well with quinoa (spelling?) mixed with minced chicken. I tried cooking up quinoa and rices in the juice from steamed vegetables or chicken stock. I sneaked in the vegetables in his rice dishes when I could.
It was so hard so I know what your are going through.
He also has the esophageal disorder too. I have it as well. The best thing I have found to do Is have water on hand for when he chokes to get the esophagus to move. Also, don't feed pancakes unless there is a lot of syrup on them. They get stuck in the throat. French fries are bad too.
Good luck! Your little girl will get better in time.
Janine
02/05/12
Thank you, Melinda! I'm sorry your little boy has the all those allergies! I will say prayers for him. I am very glad to hear he is starting to outgrow them. I hope my daughter does, too. It sounds like your son's case was even more difficult to handle than my daughter's. She has life-threatening allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, and eggs. Then, her other allergies include apples, bananas, oranges, tomatoes, ginger, vanilla, chicken, pork, potatoes, corn, and wheat. Her allergies were causing her to bleed in her digestive tract. We got it under control for about 6 weeks, and then she picked up a nasty case of c. dif. that lasted about three months. Now she's free of that, but is bleeding a little, so rice is the suspect right now since she gets so much of it. I just ordered some flours from Authentic Foods and will try to start using different flours. Thanks for mentioning quinoa. I think I'll try that since there are no pastas or rice she can eat now! That might work! Good luck to your son. I hope he continues to outgrow those allergies!
