The following recipe is a link to a gluten-free bread that has buckwheat as its main component. From what I read, buckwheat is not a grain, and, of course, not a type of wheat at all. The recipe does call for rice, but if you read the comments at the bottom of the page, you will read about many people making all sorts of substitutions. Someone, for example, mentioned making the bread with buckwheat, lentils, and chickpea flowers for her grain-free child, and mentioned that it came out very good. The bread gets rave reviews all-around.

You're welcome! And as I mentioned in my post, there are many ingredient substitutes offered by people in the comments section of the recipe post, but it would entail you reading through them to find out what those are. I also mentioned two in my post that has neither of the things you named. Oh well. Good luck!

This is an almond flour based recipe that is lower carb. I've made it often with tasty results.

I am celiac  so eat gluten free. I have never gone all the way to grain free, but squash puree makes up more than half the volume of my gluten free muffins and gives great flavour and texture. If I were trying to make grain free bread I would likely rely heavily on squash and eggs. Apple sauce works in  things I don't want tasting of squash but squash is better textured.

Have you tried alternative flours? Bean flour, chickpea flour? They don't do well with me, but many people use them heavily.

this the recipe for ‘squirrel bread’ as made by my wife - it’s essentially nuts and seeds (and oats, but more nuts and seeds can be subbed for them if necessary) glued together with flax/chia goo, and cooked more to dry the loaf back out than to ‘bake’ it. sorry for image quality, i’m not in a transcribing mood!

Thank you I'm going to try a few of these. I'm hoping when my body heals more I won't be so sensitive to some of these ingredients

This is my recipe that I use:

Low-Carb Cheddar Bread

This low carb bread makes a great sandwich for breakfast or lunch. Quick and easy, too.

  1 large egg
  2 tbsp flax seed meal
  1/2 teas. baking powder
  1 packet Splenda
  1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  1 teas. butter, melted

Tips

Add a pinch of parsley to the mix for a different flavor.

Melt butter in 15 oz oval ramekin or flat bowl. Add & mix egg, flax meal, baking powder & splenda. Add cheddar cheese and mix.

Bake at 300 degree oven for approx 25-28 minutes or 425 degrees for 15 minutes, they both turned out the same.

This makes one slice of bread. Cut in half, top half with desired sandwich filling. Suggestions: mayo or cream cheese, turkey, lettuce, tomato, etc. Then top with other half of bread. Serves one.

I'm one of those who loves chickpea flour. It makes a really nice textured bread.

Lots of grain free options here

https://www.powerhungry.com/grain-free-vegan-baking/

I've made a few things from her site and liked them all - the flax bread, one of the chickpea flour ones, and a couple others I don't remember.

I usually make thick pancakes from various things and use them as slices of bread. If I don't have any flour made from... let's say lentils, I soak them, then blend them into a batter. Then the batter can be used in place of whatever flour and liquid were going in the recipe.
