INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS
gluten free flour
For this gluten free beer bread recipe I used a 1:1 gluten free flour blend. Cup 4 cup and bob’s red mill both offer 1:1 substitutes that you can use in place of wheat flour without changing the amount. You can use wheat flour if you prefer but to keep it gluten free the 1:1 flour blend is the best bet! I have not tried this recipe with oat flour, coconut flour, almond flour or any other nut flour.
This gluten free beer bread can use either standard white granular sugar or a sugar replacement. Sugar replacements are sugar free and great for anyone who struggles with sugar intake. To use a sugar replacement check the box to make sure it is a 1:1 substitute and you dont need to use less. You can also sub coconut sugar or brown sugar in place without a problem!
This beer bread is also vegan so use vegan butter. If you want to use regular butter it will be the same amount, the same flavor and same taste. Choose whatever butter works best for you, just make sure its melted when adding it to the mix.
gluten free beer
Each gluten free beer is different so the texture will change slightly from beer to beer. You can choose whatever flavor beer you like the best. The beer bread doesnt overwelmingly taste like the beer itself but if you choose a grapefruit flavored beer vs a heavy dark beer there might be an undertone of the flavor you selected.
