Comment on Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter by Chantal.

Hi Tamara! The big pocket is called a flying crust. Your dough is either too wet or proofed for too long. Once you start a new one, let me know if you have additional questions. You can watch this newest video (https://youtu.be/QuHSndIBMQI) to help you make a new GF starter. It’s a similar recipe but for a smaller portion. Once it’s ready, you can feed it more flour and water to create more starter for the sourdough bread recipe you decide to make.

Hi Katie! You haven’t done anything wrong. Starters can vary in activity day to day. If it was previously bubbly, that’s a great sign. How’s it doing today? If it smells a little stronger and acidic, remove half of what you have in your jar and give it a good feeding of up to 1 cup of fresh flour with just enough water to stir. Then give it a good 12 to 24 hours to transform into wild yeast. Once bubbly and active, consider trying some in a recipe.

Hi! Using room temperature filtered water (around 75-85°F) will work well. A little warmer is fine too but not hot.


Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter
Hi! How is your starter doing now? If you were on days 5-6 and there was a lot of sour-smelling liquid on the surface, I would suggest pouring it out. Remove a few spoonfuls of starter, and even up to half of what is in your jar, then feed your starter more flour with just enough water to stir. Let me know if you have additional questions.

How to Make Grain-Free Bread
Hi Monique! Thank you! Have you tried creating a grain-free sourdough starter? Here’s a link to a recipe: https://www.freshisreal.com/grain-free-sourdough-starter-gf-v/ And then, creating a sourdough version of this recipe would be pretty easy. The main difference when using a sourdough starter in a bread recipe as opposed to a bread recipe without yeast is that the dough will need time to rest/rise a little. I’ll take a look at the recipe and give you more instructions once you’re ready to give it a go. I could test it right before too. Let me know once you have a happy grain-free sourdough starter.


Buckwheat Sourdough Loaf Gluten-Free Vegan
Hi Susanna! You can sub the oat flour for another light flour such as millet, sorghum, more light buckwheat, maybe teff flour or even almond meal/flour if you’re not allergic. I hope this helps!


Easiest GF Sourdough Starter
Hi! No, no. Don’t worry, it’s ok! You could also increase the flour and water to a little more too if you want. I would keep going, I wouldn’t start over. See how it’s doing in a couple of days.


7-Inch Sourdough Boule (GF/V)
Hi! Thank you so much for your lovely review and rating! If you don’t want to replace the oat flour with chickpea flour (like you tried), you could increase the seed flour to replace the 80g. Or introduce another gluten-free or grain-free flour that you have. Ideally, replacing the oat flour with another light GF flour is best. Replace by weight (80g). Do you have teff flour? What about sorghum or millet flour. Almond flour is excellent if you’re not allergic. As for adding whole seeds and nuts, go for it! Once your dough is well mixed, you could fold in (by hand) some of your favourite seeds/nuts. Half a cup of each or so would work well.


Healthy Morning Glory Muffins (GF + Vegan)
Hi Nadia! You could leave them out or add something else that you like instead. If you’re not allergic to nuts, walnuts would be great! You could also increase that oats to compensate but leaving it out is fine. If you find the batter a little too thin without shredded coconut add just enough extra oats to help thicken the batter.
