A super simple, easy, and delicious White Vegan Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread recipe that is also yeast-free, nut-free, oil-free, and stores exceptionally well!
I truly could not wait to share this one with you guys! This recipe came about when I wanted to make a sandwich bread for the kiddos that didn’t have a ton of rising time with yeast to wait out + I had a bag of cassava flour I had been meaning to put to use. The result? A super well-held-together gluten-free vegan white bread loaf with the perfect bit of fluffiness that also stores like a dream! I’ve since made this bread numerous times — it is our go-to for PB & J sandwiches, and when we make a garlic confit recipe, it pairs perfectly well with a toasted slice of this bread. The kiddos adore it and I hope you do, too!

Top Tips for Making White Vegan Gluten-Free Yeast-Free Nut-Free Sandwich Bread
I do not recommend replacing either of the flours in this recipe. They both serve unique purposes and work well together! The gluten-free all purpose flour in this recipe can be one either with or without xanthan gum. I like to use this one from Bob’s Red Mill, but I’ve successfully tested it with a few different brand with great results!
I consider psyllium husk fiber to be the secret ingredient in this recipe. Psyllium husk fiber not only adds structure and helps the whole loaf hold together sans traditional binders, but it also adds a soft, spongy texture similar to store-bought sandwich bread and also helps keep the loaf moist while stored.
I find the slightest touch of sweetness added by the maple syrup to create a greater depth of flavor in the loaf but it can easily be omitted if need be for a still-tasty loaf! Alternatively, it can also be replaced with honey, agave syrup or sugar-free maple syrup for similar results.
This gluten-free bread can easily be customized to suit your tastes and needs. A few ways I like to enjoy this loaf:
- With a handful of raisins, a dash of coconut sugar, and a sprinkle of cinnamon tossed in.
- With minced garlic, italian seasoning, and some shredded cheese (regular dairy or vegan cheese).
- With cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and chopped pickled jalapeños.
- With a variety of seeds — hemp seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds sprinkled in the batter and on top of the loaf.
This bread makes great:
- Sandwich bread.
- Sweet and savory loaves for enjoyment on their own (see ideas above).
- Bread to serve on the side of soups and chilis.
This bread keeps well and lightly covered (I like to wrap in a tea towel or place it in a vented storage container) at room temperature for 3-5 days. Any longer and I like to freeze slices of the loaf in freezer-safe containers for up to 6 months. I simply pull out slices as I need them and let them thaw at room temperature until ready to use.
