Gluten Free, Nut Free Tiger Nuts Bread Loaf is a hearty bread made with Tiger Nuts Flour and Tiger Nuts Oil that can be used for sandwiches or with bread and butter (or dipped in Tiger Nuts Oil) to accompany any meal. Fill the bread basket with this loaf for a nutrient-rich option that's both nut-free and gluten-free.   

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Bake Time: 35 – 45 minutes
Rest Time: 45 minutes – 1 hour
Yield: 1 loaf


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast – I use quick-rise yeast.
  • 3 – 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 cups Tiger Nuts Flour – sifted
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot flour – optional; or another light gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour – optional; or another light gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp guar gum
  • 2 large eggs – room temperature
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Tiger Nuts Oil – plus, enough to grease loaf pan


  1. Scald milk with water in microwave or on stove top, to heat, but not boil.
  2. To scalded milk, add honey & yeast. Stir to combine & set aside for 10 – 15 minutes, covered & in a warm area, to bloom.
  3. Combine dry ingredients, in a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  4. Using a standing mixer, combine wet ingredients, minus yeast. Once yeast has bloomed, add yeast & quickly combine, before adding dry ingredients.
  5. Grease a loaf pan with tiger nuts oil or cooking spray.
  6. Add dry ingredients 1/3 at a time, to the wet ingredients, in the mixer on a low speed. Just combine, before adding additional flour, then turn up to a medium-high speed & let combine for a 3 minutes.
  7. Scoop dough into greased loaf pan & smooth out the top with wet fingers or using a spatula. Let rise in a warm area, that is not drafty, covered, for 20 – 30 minutes. Note: Do not let rising dough crest above pan, before baking.
  8. Bake in oven on 375 degrees F for 35 – 45 minutes, or until a digital thermometer reads 210 – 220 degrees F, through the center, near the bottom of the loaf. Note: If bread is browning too much, cover with a loose aluminum foil tent, while finishing baking.
  9. Let bread rest for 2 – 3 minutes. Using a small, sharp knife, slide around edges of bread to ensure it releases, before turning it out. Gently remove baked loaf from pan & let completely cool, on its side, on a rack, before slicing.
