It wasn’t long ago that the best bread option for gluten-free folks was ‘no bread at all’. Eventually, a couple of commercially-made loaves appeared – each with a strange and notable likeness to cardboard.
Finally, the gluten-free marketplace has found it’s delicious sweetspot with a wide-variety of pretty great gluten-free bread options available in grocery stores across (most!) of the country. We’re also partial to the local loaves that can be found here in some of LA’s best healthful bakeries.
We asked our community of gluten-savvy women in wellness to dish out their faves and we’re sharing their responses below.
Erewhon Market’s housemade loaves are the clear winner of our ‘best gluten-free bread’ competition. Grindstone Bakery pulled in as a close second with their fresh-baked GF gems. And our personal special mentions must go out to Surya Spa’s killer almond flour breads and these Brazilian-made frozen cheese bread bites!
What’s The Best Gluten-Free Bread Ever?
Kelly LeVeque, celebrity nutritionist | SRSLY is the absolute best gluten-free sourdough bread made in the traditional style.
Kerrilynn Pamer, CAP Beauty | Vegan Mario’s and Grindstone Bakery. Both are AMAZING.
Sophie Jaffe, Philosophie | Canyon House or Barely Bread
Kat Odell, food writer | The best gluten-free bread I’ve had was at a restaurant named Geranium in Copenhagen — number 19 in the world on the S.Pellegrino list, and the cir’s most famous restaurant after Noma. And the trick to the bread was milling a myriad of seeds into a flour and using that to add extra moisture to the bread.
Jennie Miremadi, integrative nutritionist | Erewhon makes an organic, gluten-free, vegan bread that tastes delicious and is made from real ingredients.
Zelena Montminy, positive psychologist | Manna Organics Sesame Bread or Trader Joe’s GF Whole Grain or Rudi’s
Summer Sanders, raw food chef | Grindstone Bakery breads is amazing. I love their millet loaf.
Ally Walsh, Canyon Coffee | My New Roots life-changing bread is soooo good! Also, Erewhon sells their own brand of gluten-free bread and a paleo bread thats gluten free as well. They are both delicious.
Nitsa Citrine, Sun Potion | Love the paleo bread baked in-house from Erewhon.
Jordan Younger, The Balanced Blonde | I love SRSLY bread!
Ashley Neese, energy healer | Grindstone Bakery has the best gluten-free bread.
Meredith Baird, plant-based cookbook author | I love Vegan Mario’s in Ojai. Their fermented sourdough is insane! You can purchase it at Erewhon locally.
Jannette Ogden, Shut The Kale Up | Erewhon Market in LA has the best paleo, gluten-free, vegan bread on the planet. They don’t share the recipe but there’s nothing like it!
