Comment on Easiest GF Sourdough Starter by Chantal.

Hi Nita! Is it possible that we chatted on Instagram? If you have little white spots, it’s most likely mould. I’m afraid that you will have to start over. It’s not worth taking a chance if your starter is affected by bad bacteria.

Hi! Did you use brown rice flour? I’ve had a strange smell with a GF millet starter once but kept at it and within a few days it smelled wonderful and a little sweet but mild with a pleasant yeasty aroma. Adding lemon juice does improve the smell if you’re not loving how the starter is smelling during the process. Was your flour fresh? Was your water spring water?

Hi Jill! Here’s a link to the oat-free bread recipes on Fresh is Real: https://www.freshisreal.com/category/bread/oat-free-bread/.

Although in many of my GF bread recipes, GF oat flour can usually be substituted with another light-textured flour.

This is the top GF sourdough recipe on my site. Not as starch-heavy as other recipes, and it’s a good beginner recipe: https://www.freshisreal.com/buckwheat-sourdough-loaf-gluten-free-vegan/ You can easily sub the oat flour in this recipe. Let me know if you want some more guidance.

The Simple Sorghum Sourdough is another popular and gorgeous sourdough recipe. https://www.freshisreal.com/simple-sorghum-sourdough/ It calls for a GF sorghum starter, but I think many have made it with a brown rice starter. This recipe is oat-free.

Another great GF oat-free sourdough is the Wild Yeast Bread recipe: https://www.freshisreal.com/wild-yeast-bread-gf-v/

For a quick sourdough naan bread recipe that is also oat-free, check out: https://www.freshisreal.com/quick-sourdough-naan-bread-gf-v/

You can find the recipe for amazingly tasty GF sourdough rolls in this post, right above the directions for the yeasted version. https://www.freshisreal.com/soft-gluten-free-dinner-rolls/

As for a sourdough pancake recipe, I don’t have one on my site yet, but I make them all the time. Once you have a starter, let me know, and I can help you with some suggestions.

Hi Karen! Thank you for your comment and rating! I don’t have the nutritional details for any of my bread recipes. Although you can copy and paste any recipe links into the calculation bar of this site (right on the first page): https://whisk.com/recipe-nutrition-calculator/. It should give you all the nutritional information that you need. As for baking GF sourdough bread, keep practicing and note any changes you try, that way it will be easier to track what works best. You can play around with a touch less (or more) water, let your dough rise for less time (or more), try a different baking vessel, with or without steam, etc. Make sure your oven is nice and hot before you bake!

Gluten-Free Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls
Hi Vicki! If you don’t have whole psyllium husk but do have Bob’s Egg Replacer, you can sub 1 tablespoon of whole psyllium husk with 1 tablespoon of Bob’s Egg Replacer and achieve similar results. Bob’s Egg Replacer includes psyllium husk with starch and baking soda. Let me know if you have additional questions. Sorry for the late reply, I just saw your message now.

Yeast-Free Gluten-Free Vegan Bread
Hi Traci! Sorry for the late reply. I am just seeing your message. For this recipe, if you half the ingredients, you will get one mini loaf. Make sure you have a mini bread pan (5 x 2 inches) to bake the dough. In the future, if you have a smaller bread pan that is about 3.5 x 7.5 inches it will work best for this recipe. Your 8×4-in pan will be better than your 9×5-in pan. If your bread pan is larger, the loaf won’t be as high but can still taste great. Remember that a yeast-free loaf that is also gluten and egg-free won’t rise much which is why choosing a smaller pan helps to bake a taller loaf 😉

Hi! I personally have not but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I would consider starting with less lard at first. Try 1/4 cup to see what kind of texture you get. Then add just a bit more if necessary. You will most likely need a little less than 1/2 cup. Also, if you do consume dairy, you can use regular butter.
