This bread is magic.

Flour-free, healthy & delicious! The first time I baked with tahini, I was absolutely amazed. Tahini binds just like a gluten-based flour. If you are a fan of tahini (or sesame flavored anything, for that matter), you will certainly adore this bread. It holds together, stores and slices well. Not to mention, it is a quick one bowl prep…and super easy!

Tips for making Gluten-Free Tahini Bread:

  • You can omit the coconut sugar without any issue if you follow a sugar-free or KETO diet. Alternatively, you can use a sugar-free sweetener such as this one.

  • This is a versatile recipe. You can omit all spices or use a variety of your choice. Some variations that work well: cinnamon and nutmeg; cumin and chili powder; coriander and fennel seeds; garlic and rosemary.

  • If you only have salted tahini on hand, you can use it instead but be certain to omit the salt in this recipe.

  • This recipe will work without any seeds at all if you would prefer.

  • This recipe will also work with any mix and match variety of seeds you would prefer to use instead.

  • Be sure to allow the loaf to cool completely before slicing to ensure best results.

  • This bread stores well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

    Is the tahini in this recipe unrefined?

    • Kristen Wood

      Both refined and unrefined work just fine in this recipe! I use whatever I have on hand whenever I go to make this bread. 🙂

    This bread is delicious. I made it with hazelnuts, pecans, almonds, flaxseed meal, pepitas and sesame seeds. Just wow- just had a slice with butter and cheese. Love it.

    You mention above substituting sugar-free sweeteners. Do you have recommendations for those that have worked well for you? Thank you!

    Hello… question:

    Can you also use tahini paste, instead of (I assume) tahini flour?

    After all, tahini flour is also grinded sesame seed?

    I would like some help with this….

    • Kristen Wood
      09/28/2020 at 11:12 PM

      Hi Layilah – this recipe doesn’t use flour of any sort. Regular liquid tahini paste is just what you need! 🙂

    Hello !
    What does the measure 11/2 means ?
    Sorry I am Italian and something u get confuse with measurement

    • Kristen Wood
      08/30/2020 at 10:35 AM

      Hi! That’s one and a half cups of tahini or 360 grams! There is a “Metric” button right below the word “Ingredients” in the recipe card, too. I hope this helps! 🙂

    Oh, have mercy!!! This recipe is spectacular! I am completely amazed by how this turned out! I have never left a comment about a recipe before but this deserves accolades!
    I followed your recipe and added garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin and topped it with your suggestions and then on a whim added Everything But The Bagel seasoning. The bread is tender but hardy and bursting with flavor!
    Since I had all the ingredients out and was pleased with the savory version, I opted for a sweet version to see how it would work. I followed the same recipe minus all of the seasonings. I added a generous amount of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of Swerve brown sugar and a bit of stevia.. It turned out just as lovely and so incredibly delicious. It is hard to believe it is so healthy! I can and will have “bread” again…Thank you for my new favorite!!!

    How many slices in the loaf? A serving?

    • Kristen Wood
      04/25/2020 at 5:38 PM

      Apologies, I just switched recipe card formats and it looks like that information didn’t transfer! I will fix it – it’s 10 slices! 🙂

    Hi Kristen!
    Thank you for this incredible recipe! It’s unbelievable there’s no flour in it! 🙂
    I was wondering if I can make a “sweet” version of the bread using almond butter or hazelnut butter and no salt. What do you think?
    Thank you!

      Hi Claudia! I’m so happy you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing! Yes, using any nut or seed butter should work well, as does adding warming spices such as cinnamon or ginger, chocolate chips or a touch of maple syrup or honey! 🙂 -Kristen

    I don’t eat eggs, do you think substituting with flax seed or psyllium seed gel would work?

    • Kristen Wood
      01/22/2020 at 9:52 PM

      Because I haven’t tested this with any egg replacements, I wouldn’t be able to say for certain. However, I do think there is a chance it would work, but I do not think the texture would be quite the same. If you try it, I would love to hear about it! Best, Kristen.

      How would you sub flax or psyllium here?

      • Kristen Wood
        03/07/2020 at 10:43 PM

        Hi Cara – I would try with 4 flax eggs (4 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 12 tablespoons of warm water) or with psyllium husk I would try with 4 tablespoons of psyllium husk fiber mixed with 8 tablespoons of warm water.) I hope this helps!
