Here’s what you need from the pantry: chickpea flour, baking soda, granulated cane sugar, a 12-ounce can of seltzer water or club soda, and a small amount of oil. Salt is optional, so follow my lead with the recommended amount, or adjust to suit your particular tastes and needs,

The Ingredients for Chickpea Flour Sandwich Bread

I used olive oil for the recipe, but you can use any oil that you prefer.

The same holds true with the sweetener. I stuck with natural cane sugar (I use 1-1/2 tablespoons in the recipe), but you can use any sweetener. If you use a liquid sweetener (e.g., maple syrup), simply add it along with the other wet ingredients. If you are wondering why the bread has sweetener, it is to (1) promote browning; (2) balance the savory flavor of the chickpea flour, and (3) enhance the rise of the bread.

Seltzer (or club soda) and  baking soda are primarily responsible for the bread’s great rise, as well as it’s light, tender, sandwich-bread texture. I strongly recommend using a fresh can of seltzer; if measuring from a bottle, make sure that it is a brand new bottle (so that there is maximum carbonation).

Make the Bread (it’s Easy!)

Forget any and all difficulties you may have ascribed to bread-making; the assembly here could not be easier. (1) Whisk the dry ingredients; (2) stir in the seltzer water and oil; and (3) pour the batter into a parchment-lined baking pan. It will require about 3 minutes of your time.

Slide the pan into the oven and bake, at 375F, for 40 to 45 minutes until the loaf is risen, browned and a tester inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

You’ve got bread!

I’ve calculated the nutrition for this bread using the guideline of 12 thick slices per loaf. However, this bread slices beautifully, without crumbling, so feel free to slice it as thin as you like!

Pair the bread with sweet or savory fillings and spreads, it is delicious with everything! It also toasts like a dream.

Prepare to commit this recipe to memory, as I am confident you will want to make it often. Happy baking (and eating!).

Description

Delicious, versatile, 5-ingredient sandwich bread made in minutes with chickpea flour! It is naturally grain-free and vegan.


Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Line a 9×5-inch (22.5 x 12.5 cm) loaf pan with parchment paper; grease or spray the exposed sides.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Slowly pour the seltzer down the side of the bowl (to prevent a lot of foaming); add the olive oil and stir until combined. Immediately pour into prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes until risen, golden brown and a skewer inserted near the center comes out clean.
  5. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely before slicing.

Notes

Storage: Store the cooled bread in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days, in the refrigerator for 1 week, or tightly wrapped in freezer for up to 6 months.

Sweetener Options: Use any granulated sugar you prefer (e.g., coconut sugar, sucanat). or an equal amount of liquid sweetener such as maple syrup (add with the other wet ingredients)

Tip: An uncooked piece of spaghetti can be used as a tester (instead of a skewer) for determining if the center is set!

Hi! Is it ok to substitute baking powder for the baking soda? I don't like the flavour baking soda gives when I use it in recipes... Thank you, this looks like such a great & easy recipe!

Didn’t have seltzer water so I used a can of ginger ale and didn’t add any sweetner. It was amazing.

Just made this. It’s brilliant! I added sunflower seeds and the batter supported it well. Still nice light texture and doesn’t crumble. Pleasantly surprised. Also added some paprika and cumin. Yummy! Thanks for another great recipe

Wow, I was really impressed with this recipe. I was a little sceptical that a loaf could rise without proofing, minimal ingredients or lots of elbow grease(!) I followed the recipe exactly and found it to be spot on. The result was a nutty taste and nice outer crust with a soft inner texture. It makes a lovely gluten free alternative; thank you so much for this recipe!

This is the best gluten-free vegan bread I've made yet. I added a teaspoon of oregano to the batter because I have found chickpea flour to be too bland for my taste in the past, but this recipe would be just as good without. I'll definitely be making this bread again and again. Thank you for the recipe!
