Gluten free, dairy free PCOS friendly bread recipe

We’ve had so many conversations about giving up gluten, either on the PCOS Show or in various articles on the blog.

And I know that it’s not easy. What are you going to have for lunch instead of sandwiches? Is gluten free bread okay? Bread is just so easy.

Well, I prefer not to have gluten free bread for a number of reasons. It tends to be made from very processed and refined flours, giving it a high glycemic load. And I just don’t like the taste of it, if I’m entirely honest.

But, I did stumble across this wonderful PCOS friendly bread recipe from Elana’s Pantry. It is so easy to make and is a regular feature in our family.

I love it toasted or plain as a sandwich bread.

Here is the recipe for you:


PCOS Friendly Bread


  • 2 x cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 x tablespoons coconut flour
  • ¼ x cup golden flaxmeal
  • ¼ x cup golden flaxmeal
  • ¼ x teaspoon celtic sea salt

  • Cool in the pan for 2 hours

  1. Please show this recipe in grams for us over in the uk -I’d love to try but getting really confused with measurements- thanks so much 🙂

  2. Hi Tarryn.

    Thanks for the recipe. Just wondering what your thoughts were on gluten free wraps? I have been using bfree gluten, dairy and soy free multi grain ones for lunch but after reading this I’m worried now about the glycemic load!

  3. Hi Tarryn,

    Please correct me if I am wrong – but Almond Flour are ground almonds right? Nuts are high in calories and affects uric acid.

    Would that mean this bread recipe is also high in Calories and should be eaten in moderation because of the Almond Flour and concern on it’s efect on Uric Acid?

    Thank you!
