Soft, Gluten-free, Moist Bread Does Exist!

It finally happened.

I bit into a piece of gluten-free bread that didn't crumble like a stale cookie, taste like tire tread or nearly chip a tooth. I pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

A few months ago a gal I follow on Google+ was raving about a new gluten-free bread she found at the grocery store. I've kept the name in the back of my head in case it ever showed up in my neck of the woods, and it finally did.

Ready? It's Canyon Bakehouse 7-Grain Gluten-free Bread.

I actually enjoyed a sandwich without toasting the bread first! For those of you who are slaves to gluten-free carbs, you know what I mean. Most gluten-free breads are simply more palatable when toasted.

Here's the ingredient list, courtesy of the Canyon Bakehouse website:

INGREDIENTS:  Water, Brown Rice Flour, Tapioca Flour, Organic Agave Syrup, Whole Grain Sorghum Flour, Xanthan Gum, Whole Grain Millet, Cultured Brown Rice Flour, Whole Grain Quinoa, Eggs, Whole Grain Teff, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Whole Grain Amaranth, Sugarcane Molasses, Sea Salt, Yeast, Whole Grain Buckwheat Flour, Natural Enzymes
Note: Buckwheat does NOT contain wheat, it is a naturally gluten-free grain.

I'm not sure what else to say about this bread except that you must try it. It's THE best gluten-free bread I've tried to date, and I try a lot! Now I'm hoping my local Hy-Vee store will start carrying this company's other gluten-free products, like muffins and focaccia!!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. For the past four weeks, I've had minimal starches in my diet. That means no - bread, potato, rice, pasta, couscous etc. I thought I'd really miss the starches but have found that I haven't, at all. I'm also down about 10lbs (4.5kgs) and that all appears to be fat-based loss. I haven't cut down on fats at all as I truly believe that our brains need fat to function. I'm happy to keep my brain working away at the pace it does... :)

    I'm sad that you felt you had to leave the A-Z challenge. I've gone back and ready your dailies and they're delightful, informative and well, just good. Oh and I'm following you now too...

  2. Hi Fe,

    Thanks for stopping by! Thanks for sharing your insight. I've heard that you need starches and carbohydrates for energy. Do you still feel as energetic as usual without the starches?

    Congrats on the weight loss! Getting rid of fat is always a good thing! I'm 4.5 pounds away from my weight loss goal and closing in quickly. I'm so excited!! My focus now is toning up, so I'm trying to eat more protein to fuel my slowly growing muscles. Heck, I'm just excited that I can pick up heavier things now without strain -- like the giant bag of dog food, several bags of groceries at once, etc.

    Thanks for your kind words about my blog. Whole Foods Living is here to stay. And so is my other blog, Web Writing Advice. But I had several people tell me the daily notifications were too much and unsubscribed. I will post to this blog each Monday and WWA on Thursdays.

    Happy blogging!

  3. Finally, a gluten bread that doesn't taste like tire tread (ha-ha). I'm not on a restricted diet but a friend of mine is. Passing this on.... Thanks!

    1. Oh, some gluten-free breads are just horrid. This one is so good. Yes, please tell your friend and anyone else who can't eat gluten! ~ Angela

  4. Bread used to be my favorite...till I discovered it made me feel sick or tired.

    Let me try out this bread now :).
