The kids have been back to school for a couple of weeks. We are still trying to get back into the swing of things after summer vacation. Morning routines are tough to get back on track again. I’ve been working on having quick and easy breakfast ideas for the kids that are ready to go. Foods they can heat, toast, pour or spread without my help.

My kids prefer a little variety day-to-day. They don’t want the same yogurt, cereal, or fruit for breakfast. On the weekends I make a big batch of pancakes that I freeze and they re-heat. I’ve also been making a lot of muffins and bread. Marisol loves citrus flavors and banana loaves, so I made this gluten-free honey oat bread for Flynn.

The best part about this bread (besides being delicious with a little jam on top), is there is no yeast, no kneading, and is ready in under an hour. 

We have a friend who drops off a dozen eggs from her chicken coop when she drops off her daughter before school. There’s nothing that I love more than fresh eggs in the morning. Paired with freshly baked bread and a side of tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, and potatoes, I can’t think of a better way to start the day.

  • 2 cups plain gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats (plus extra for topping)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12oz plain yogurt (2 small 6oz tubs)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey (plus extra for brushing over the top)
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick baking spray, and I always line the bottom with parchment paper too.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a separate medium-sized bowl whisk the egg, then add in the oats, yogurt, oil, and honey, and then gently stir through the milk.
  5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients, and gently stir together with a wooden spoon until combined, but don't over mix.
  6. Pour the bread mixture into the pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes. I started checking it at 30 minutes, and it ended up taking right on 45 minutes, but I'm always paranoid about over-cooking or burning baked goods. It's ready when you pop a wood skewer in and it comes out clean.
  7. Set the bread aside to cool on a wire rack and then brush it with honey and top with the extra oats.

Thank you! I’m thinking of baking a few loaves to give for Christmas. So; it will be interesting to see how it comes out now that I know not to over mix it.

Is there something I can replace the yogurt with? I can’t eat yogurt. Thanks

Hi Margaret, I use the Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 baking flour.

Margaret Cuillerier October 15, 2017 - 6:35 am

you use plain gluten free flour, is that an all purpose flour as that is what I have in my pantry.

Elizabeth Ramirez October 25, 2017 - 9:15 pm

Do you think Jovial’s gluten free bread flour would work for this recipe?

Ella Hathaway November 3, 2017 - 3:43 pm

Can you substitute almond milk, metal for regular milk?

Amanda January 9, 2018 - 11:29 am

Maybe try coconut yogurt? Can you not have dairy? Cuz coconut yougurt is dairy free 🙂

[email protected] April 23, 2018 - 10:26 am

In dairy-free too. What can I use instead of yogurt?

Sr. Estelle May 23, 2018 - 6:00 pm

I’d love to know if this can be made dairy free with almond milk and coconut yogurt as well.. I’m so glad I found this recipe as I’ve been looking all over for a nice toasting bread that is gluten free and yeast free. Thank you!

What is the best way to store this bread and does it freeze well if several are made in advance?

Sara October 13, 2018 - 3:06 pm

Instead of baking in oven, could this be used in a bread machine? I did it in the oven and found it didn’t rise as much as it could in a bread machine

Karen October 29, 2018 - 6:43 pm

do you have to add xanthan gum if flour like 1-1 baking flour not added already. If so what quantity?

Karen January 11, 2019 - 8:07 am

My bread didn’t rise very well, it seemed too moist. I’m from Canada and wondered if the cup sizes are different. Could you possibly give me the ingredients in weights especially the flour, oats and yogurt. Would really appreciate it. Thks. Karen

Tina February 19, 2019 - 7:36 am

Would you need special gluten free oats? I thought rolled oats in general were not considered gluten free due to contamination from other glutenous grains??

Beverly September 12, 2019 - 2:29 am

Is Bob’s gluten free flour made from almonds? I’m allergic to almonds.

Misti August 30, 2020 - 2:50 am

Any substitution for the yogurt?
