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!

I can’t wait to hear what you think…

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.

    1. Hi, Anna! This bread does freeze and thaw well. As for the egg whites, I’ve never tested it with this sub so I cannot speak for sure. If you try it, I would love to hear about it! 🙂

  1. hello Kristen, on your flourless magic tahini seed bread, at the ingredients- what do you mean at 2 tbs sunflower seeds – 1 tbs for batter, 1 tbs for sprinkling on top, I understand sprinkling but the battery, I don’t understand, do you mean I have to powered the sunflower seeds n then put a bit of water or milk to become batter? I hope to receive answer as I’m going to do the bread tonight. regards, Cristy

    1. Hi! You just need to mix one tablespoon of whole sunflower seeds into the batter before baking and sprinkle some on top when it is done. I hope this helps! 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    I baked it and wow. It kept for days as fresh as the first. So delicious I will never go back to flour bread. I had no gut aches or uncomfortable after eating it. Thank-you for a great recipe.

  3. 5 stars
    This bread is truly amazing. Definitely worth a try. When I made it I followed the basic recipe, next time I’m getting adventurous.

  4. Can you substitute the chia seeds for used ground seeds ? My husband has diverticulitis and I’m afraid they might cause a flareup.

    1. Hi, Christine! Thank you for stopping by. You can replace it with any whole or ground seed you prefer, or you can simply omit it. I hope this helps!

  5. 5 stars
    I am so excited! this is the closest gluten free bread texture to real bread! do I keep it outside or store it in the fridge?

    1. I’m so happy to hear that! 🙂 Thank you for sharing! Slice it and keep the slices stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to about one week.

    1. Hi! A toaster oven will work but you will want to check to make sure it isn’t overdone, as from my own experience, toaster ovens tend to cook hotter and more quickly than conventional ovens, so it will likely take less time to bake. I hope this helps!

  6. 5 stars
    Amazing! Just pulled this out of the oven…and it looks beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I made the recipe as you gave it. However, since I’m allergic to nightshades, I used onion and garlic with the oregano instead of the paprika. Fantastic! I will make again and try nuts and cinnamon next time. This is yummy! Thank you!

    Love this !! The first time I made it- I followed the recipe- but the second time I added cocoa powder and walnuts and it was even more amazing! I’m going to add zucchini and see how it turns out!!

  8. 5 stars
    This is soooo good. I make this weekly now. Can’t wait to try it with different herbs/spices. Tip: Definitely omit the salt if tahini is salted, as mentioned.

  9. Hello. I have just made this and I’ve done something wrong. It’s just a crumbly mess. It didn’t rise either

  10. 5 stars
    I have been making this bread for a few weeks now I found it bitter at first but persevered because it was so easy to make, absolutely love it now spread with butter and I always keep some slices in the freezer

    I made a garlic powder-onion powder with everything bagel spice on top as per the comment above. delicious! then I made a sweet one with sweetener and cinnamon as per comment above. thank you! I added inside vanilla extract and on the top: chopped macadamia nuts, almonds, sweetener and almond extract. even my pro-wheat eaters asked for seconds!
    please let me know exact measurements of a loaf pan. I made this in a smallish one, and didn’t know whether it would overflow. so I used muffin- cupcake paper cups too. and the muffin- cupcake size was convenient and perfect texture. thank you

    1. Honestly, having not tested this particular recipe in a bread machine, I cannot say one way or another in confidence. If your bread machine has a basic cycle for non-yeasted bread with minimal mixing and similar temp/time, it is probably worth a try though!

    1. Hi Lynna — I recommend making this with unsalted tahini and no added salt or baking soda. It will still work out quite well! You can add any combo of spices or add-ins (shredded coconut, chocolate, dried fruit, etc.) for additional flavor if need be. It is a rather versatile recipe. I hope this helps! 🙂

      I made some in muffin-cupcake tins (from paper) . I filled the tin half way with the dough before adding the sprinkles (seeds or nuts) on top-and they came out wonderful texture and convenient size to take to school/work. enjoy!

    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.

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

  14. 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….

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

    1. 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! 🙂

      1. Thx you so much for your reply . Yes I used the metric button but it did not converted 11/2! I am looking forward to try this recepy !

    I have made this countless times and it is my go to banana bread to have for breakfasts- I, and everyone I have shared it with, love it so much. I don’t think I will ever try a different recipe again!

    Hi there,I made this bread today and it was AMAZING. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe ❣️?

  18. 5 stars
    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!!!

      thank you for sharing your additions: they are inspired and I copied your ideas, and tweaked the sweet one just.a bit, by adding crushed macadamia and chopped almonds with sweetener and almond extract to resemble “streusel topping”. thanks so much!

  19. 5 stars
    ‘Love this recipe! I was amazed how well the bread rose! The taste is so hearty and delicious! I will be making this again!

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

  20. 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!
    Claudia from Italy

    1. 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

      1. 5 stars
        thank you for this info:)
        I didn’t see it until after I made the recipe- it came out amazing
        (maybe its a good idea to add the size on the recipe, or am I the only one who has many sized loaf pans/who doesn’t read all the comments until I’m already sitting down with the finished yummy product?)lol

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

    1. 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.

      1. 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!

        I made your savory version adding 1tsp of garlic powder and 1tsp rosemary. I omitted the oregano. It was really tasty toasted.
        I made a sweet spiced zucchini version adding 3/4 cup grated zucchini, 1tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp clove, 1tsp nutmeg, 1tsp ginger and increasing the sunflower seeds to 1/4 cup. It was amazing plain or toasted with butter.
        Thank you so much for this recipe.
