If you are on a budget or don’t what to spend $10 or more on a loaf of gluten-free bread, then this recipe is for you. Just be sure to purchase gluten-free oats if you need to be 100% gluten-free.
I wanted to cut down the spending on our grocery budget so I got inspired to make this homemade oatmeal bread recipe.
Prior to making this oat bread, I was buying delicious gluten-free fermented bread from our local baker, but it was also a pretty penny at 13 dollars a loaf. I know you may be thinking, who spends 13 dollars on a loaf of bread?! I do.
But that is because regular bread made from wheat flour is one of my food intolerances. Plus, storebought bread is a highly processed refined carbohydrate that I advise people to reduce or eliminate from their diets.
The gluten-free bread options in grocery stores are not that much better. Highly processed flours that are deficient in nutrients are often used.

Oatmeal Flax Bread Recipe
- Loaf baking pan
- 1 cup ground flax seeds
- 2 cups oat flour
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp soda bicarbonate
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 6 eggs
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- In a medium size mixing bowl combine oat flour, ground flax seeds, sea salt and soda bicarbonate. Mix together.
- In a separate bowl combine eggs, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Mix together
- Add one cup of warm water to the dry mixture and stir with a spoon. Add the remainder of the wet ingredients and continue to mix until thoroughly combined. The bread dough will be quite wet still and runny, but it will thicken and rise as it bakes in the oven.
- Line the bottom of a loaf pan and one side with baking paper. Grease the sides of the loaf pan with olive oil to prevent dough from sticking.
- Pour the wet oatmeal flax bread dough into the loaf pan and place in the oven.
- Bake the oatmeal flax bread for 1 hour at 170° Celcius.
- Once the bread is finished baking, flip the loaf pan upside down and shake to get the bread out. You may need to separate the sides using a butter knife. Let the oatmeal bread cool on a baking rack.
