Easy Homemade Low FODMAP Baguettes

There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven! These homemade low FODMAP baguettes are no exception. I think it’s the yeast that really puts it over the top. This bread has a nice texture and bakes up golden brown. I’m still working on a crispier crust, but when toasted the next day it’s fantastic! This is a huge hit at my house; even MK gives her thumbs up and that is saying something! We love to dip this bread in our soup. And the next morning, I toast up a few slices, add an egg and maybe a slice of bacon for a yummy breakfast sandwich.

How to Make Low FODMAP Baguettes

Have a baking sheet pan ready, I like to dust it with cornmeal to prevent sticking. Plus, we really like the texture of the cornmeal. They can be baked on a sheet pan, or a French loaf pan (pictured). A regular sheet pan works just fine!

In a small bowl, combine small yeast packet, sugar and the warm water. Set aside to allow the yeast to bloom and foam. The bubbles and foam tell you that the yeast is active. (If it doesn’t foam, then your yeast isn’t alive and will need to be replaced.)

Dry ingredients:

In a large bowl, add in dry ingredients. Those include 2 cups white rice flour, 1/2 cup tapioca starch, 1/2 cup potato starch (to add lightness to the bread), 1 TB xanthan gum (binder),  1 1/2 Himalayan sea salt (the little bit of pink that you see).

I have not tried this recipe with brown rice flour yet (I know it’s a little more nutritious) But, I was told to keep that to a minimum with TQ’s diet until I know his tolerances. so, that will be tested at a later date.

I have however, added a a tablespoon or two of ground flax seed successfully.

Once the yeast is foamy, pour on top of the dry ingredients. Next, add the melted butter or Earth Balance (2TB), egg whites (1/4 cup) and vinegar (1 tsp). Stir to combine, takes 2-3 minutes. Mixing can also be done in a mixer (I prefer to mix by hand).

The dough will be sticky. Divide the dough in half. The best way I have found to make the loaves is by gathering half of it up and rolling it between my hands as if to make a snake shape. I have also had success scooping spoonfuls onto the pan and creating the snake on the baking pan. (It’s messy!)

Once the loaves are formed, cover them with a clean towel and keep them in a warm spot for 20-30 minutes, until they’ve puffed up a bit. Optional: slit the tops and brush on a little melted butter.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and Bake for 30 minutes. Crust will be a nice golden brown. I really hope you enjoy! This is our favorite. Looks good doesn’t it?!
