Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Baking

Updated comfort food without the grain and gluten

Foods like gluten-free bread and gluten-free kugel equal comfort. They seem to nourish the body, heart and soul. But when traditional wheat-based baked goods like these cause you to suffer, why torture yourself? Choose these delicious gluten-free versions of classic gluten-free challah bread, gluten-free pita bread and gluten-free apple kugel instead. Made without grains, they’re gluten-free and Paleo-friendly. They’re ideal for the Jewish holidays and any time of year.

Gluten-Free Challah

MAKES 1 GLUTEN-FREE LOAF

Nothing smells better than a challah baking. This soft, warm gluten-free bread is traditionally served for Jewish Shabbat dinner but after you taste this warm buttery gluten-free loaf, you’ll find excuses to make it often. If you prefer the look of traditional braided gluten-free challah, use a challah bread mold, available online. For best results, do not replace the eggs in this recipe.

Gluten-Free Apple Kugel

MAKES 8 SERVINGS

This gluten-free recipe takes away the refined white flour for a delicious, gluten-free cake-like treat that won’t weigh so heavily once eaten. For a fancier gluten-free kugel, use half apples and half pears. It can be made with egg replacement.

Gluten-Free Pita Bread

MAKES 6 SERVINGS

Gluten-Free Pita is a traditional pocket bread which can be stuffed and eaten like a sandwich or used to dip into gluten-free hummus. This grain-free rendition calls for cassava flour instead of wheat flour for an interesting twist on an old favorite. If you prefer more of a pita chip, roll the dough out thinner and bake it until it’s crispy.
