Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Hearty Whole Grain Bread Mix—specially designed for those sensitive to wheat or gluten—makes a delicious bread bursting with whole grains and seeds. The flavor and texture are complex and deeply satisfying. Whether made by hand or in a bread machine, this hearty mix takes homemade bread to a new level. This moist, flavorful bread is wonderful for savory sandwiches, toast, bread crumbs, croutons, hamburger buns and pizza dough. The unique blend of gluten free flours is wonderfully nutritious. Garbanzo bean flour is loaded with protein, dietary fiber and a healthy dose of vitamins, especially vitamin B6 and folate. Garbanzo bean flour also contains a variety of minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Whole grain sorghum flour is a powerhouse of nutrition and adds a superb flavor to gluten-free baking. It is a good source of protein, iron, dietary fiber and antioxidants. Fava bean flour is an excellent source of protein and potassium. It also contains thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin B6, and it is a very rich source of dietary fiber. Compared to other grains, teff has a much larger percentage of bran and germ, so it's a very good source of dietary fiber, protein, iron, and calcium. The calcium content in teff significantly surpasses that of all other grains. Our Gluten-Free Whole Grain Bread Mix contains: whole grain buckwheat, garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, cornstarch, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, whole grain sorghum flour, tapioca flour, evaporated cane juice, cocoa powder, fava bean flour, molasses powder (molasses, maltodextrin, silicon dioxide), xanthan gum, caraway seeds, active dry yeast, sea salt, whole grain teff, potato flour, onion powder, guar gum and soy lecithin. Makes 1-1/2 lb loaf.

Huge surprise! This is a wonderful flavorful hearty bread and unlike just about any other GF bread mix I have tried. It even kept nicely for quite a few days. I'm ordering more--this bread will become one of our staples. Thank you, Bob's Red Mill for this fabulous mix.

Nutty. chewy. Yum!
This was my first bread machine experiment, and I loved it! One of my grown children needs gluten-free breads so she liked it, but my whole family raved over it as well. I did not taste the caraway seeds that others remarked upon. I DID love the nutty texture.

At Long Last
I have been searching for a gluten free bread that didn't fall apart and taste like sand. This was phenomenal. Highly recommended.

Quick and easy tasty bread
I bake bread on a weekly basis and usually don't use a bread mix. This mix is outstanding! The bread turned out perfectly. The taste was sort of like a rye, not as dense and more moist. I used my bread machine to mix the dough but let it rise and bake in a bread pan.

Best Bread mix quick and easy!
I bake bread weekly and generally don't use a bread mix. However, the Hearty Whole Grain Bread Mix is outstanding! My husband just loves the flavor and texture. The bread is easy to make and great with peanut butter. I recommend it
for anyone. Looks fancy!

Would be amazing without the caraway!
Easy to make. Would taste amazing if there was less caraway seeds, it is a little overpowering. If you like the taste of caraway this is the bread for you.

Great Bread, Great Flours and Mixes
Excellent bread, and easy to make. It's the only alternative I've found to all the "white" GF bread and bread mixes. For white bread, I have had great success with Bob's Red Mill recipe for Everyday GF bread. The bonus, and why I'm a faithful BRM customer, is the mixes and flours are mostly garbanzo flour, which is much healthier than the usual rice, tapioca, and other low-nutrition flours. Thank you, Bob! Review by BJan / (Posted on 8/8/2015)
Delicious, moist, and tastes like rye bread which I loved, but couldn't eat it because of gluten. Please keep the caraway seeds.
I just found this bread mix, about a month ago in a health food store. I absolutely loved it caraway seeds and all! it tasted like rye bread which I really missed since being GF. I made it in my bread machine with ground flax seed, and water. It's so moist and DELICIOUS! Thank you. Please keep the caraway seeds. Make one without for others, but keep it for those who like caraway seeds. Thanks

Good but a little strong on the caraway.
I love this bread except I agree with others that the caraway is too strong. It limits its use. Maybe cut it back or let people add their own as an option.

I made it in my silicone bread pan without the hassle of greasing and parchment paper. It works great.

Definitely a keeper-- as good as a muffin
I've baked about six loaves of this now and it continues to please. With all the sesame and sunflower seeds in it, it seems like a nut bread, and I like it plain as well as with butter and/or honey, or as a bread with a meal. It also makes a nice snack with cheese melted on it.

Best bread, but with one request
I was so excited to find this bread. It came out of my bread machine perfectly and I was thrilled until I tasted the caraway seeds (which I hadn't realized were in there). If there's anyway to make a wonderful, hearty bread like this without the very strong tasting caraway seeds, I'd be the only bread I'd ever need. Other than the caraways seeds, it was incredible!

Great full-flavored bread
I am sensitive to eggs, so I replaced the 2 eggs in the recipe with 2 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 6 tbsp warm water for at least 5 minutes.
I let the bread rise for one hour on the counter, as directed on the package.
Based on another reviewer's comments, I decided to try a covered baking approach. Lacking a Dutch oven, I put the dough in a greased and parchment-lined glass loaf pan, which I covered with a similar-sized loaf pan for the first 40 minutes of baking time.
The bread turned out perfectly! It rose well, held its shape, and had a texture similar to that of Dave's Killer Bread (which is not GF).
Slicing once the bread has a chance to cool definitely yields better texture (a common trait of GF breads)! If you succumb to the allure of hot, fresh bread, at least don't slice the whole loaf right away. Review by Pearl by the Se / (Posted on 1/17/2014)
Like old world dense breads
I had a craving for a hot smoked ham sandwhich and went looking for breadmixes because i wasn't in the mood to create my own. I was soo happy when this came out of the breadmaker!!!! I miss the old world dark pumpernickle and rye breads of my pre-GF days. I like international breads, often the more dense and flavorful, the more i like. I sliced this warm and steamy, put on honey & dijon, mashed cranberry sauce, slabs of smoked ham, mild cheddar and we feasted! Thank you Bobs! Loved It! PS, i understand just what the other commenters mean by removing the onion and caraway: Great Idea; only keep it in this version, renamed and make ANOTHER version without it.

Taste is reminiscent of pumpernickel
Used this mix in the bread machine as directed on the package. Smells incredible while baking, and turns out a very hearty loaf. Medium-dark in color and taste is similar to a mild pumpernickel bread, though more moist, and with seeds and nuts. I was looking for a GF bread alternative and chose this over the "wonderful" bread mix. I will try that one next! Review by MG / (Posted on 12/16/2013)
Love This Bread Mix For Rusks
I buy this mix and keep it on hand to make in my breadmaker, slice thin, cut slices in quarters and dry as rusks, making them much more economical than prepared rusks in the store. And these are gluten free as well. For the holidays I added a heaping TBS of pure chocolate powder and another heaping TBS of instant coffee crystals to the mix, too. Yum! I love this stuff!!! Oh, and it's delicious when it's not dried into rusks as well, especially hot from the breadmaker. But it keeps well in the refrigerator, too. Review by Mia / (Posted on 12/7/2013)
Did not rise enough
I would like to know why all of a sudden the last 3 bags did not rise. I have used the mix for over 3 years and had great luck. Use the other breads and have no problem Review by Marty / (Posted on 4/16/2013)
Delicious Easy Homemade Bread
This was the first bread I have ever made by myself, and I did it without the bread machine. It was amazing. Flavorful and delicious, good if you like rye/pumpernickel kind of breads. Not a white bread, or even like a wheat bread, so be careful of that.||It was a little crumbly the day after I made it so I popped it in the freezer, like I do with all gluten free breads and most baked goods.

Good but for caraway
First, thank you for a very good product. But I agree with others who say that this is good bread but would be better and more appealing without the caraway. I don't have anything against caraway, but I don't want it in my bread. Bread should be versatile, not limiting. Bread should taste like grain, not seasonings like caraway and onion. Let the user add to the flour and put things onto the bread Review by Dave / (Posted on 4/22/2012)
The bread was very good, but you cannot use it to make a PB & J. The texture and flavor are great for savory sandwiches, but not for sweet. The bread holds up well and does not crack. It has the texture of wheat bread.|Would you guys please take out the caraway seeds and onion powder to make a bread that would work for everything? Please?!|Thanks for all the great gluten free products. I would be Review by Gluten Free RN / (Posted on 2/21/2012)
What A Great Bread!
It is a great, satisfying alternative to some other gluten free breads. Review by Marty / (Posted on 10/22/2011)
The Caraway Seed question
There are quite a few negative comments about the caraway seeds. These particular seeds have such a strong flavor, I wonder: would you consider leaving them out? It would be easy for people who like them to just add a pinch or a handful to their taste. They are just too overpowering for me! Otherwise, I really like the texture and variety of grains in this hearty bread. I've made it several times now; I'll probably make it again; but I would MUCH prefer it w/o those darn caraway seeds!

16 year old likes it!
My 16 year old son loves the Homemade Wonderful Bread mix but wanted to try some new foods. He loved this mix toasted for breakfast. I also noticed him packing it with GF ham for lunch but he later commented that it was crumbly for a sandwhich. I used one egg and one egg substitute in the recipe. We love Bob's Red Mill GF mixes!!!! Makes my life easier! Review by Teacher and mom / (Posted on 9/17/2011)
I LOVE this mix, but not the directions. If I do it their way, I get a weird shaped loaf that sticks to the pan no matter how much I grease it. I prepare it according to the package using just 1/2 the yeast. Pour the dough into a small iron dutch oven (I use a 2 qt Le Creuset) lined with greased parchment paper (the paper keeps it from sticking to the pan). Smooth the top and cover with a thick layer of raw sunflower seeds. Then cover with the lid (oiled inside). The seeds look and taste great and keep the bread from welding itself to the lid. Let rise for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Bake at 375 degrees for about 65 minutes or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the middle reads 205 degrees. Remove the lid for the last 20 minutes of baking. Remove the loaf from pan, pull off the paper (you can save it for the next baking), and cool on a rack. This gives you a lovely round loaf, with good crust, that slices beautifully and looks like it came from a fancy bakery. No misshapen, collapsed loaf. The refrigerator rise and enclosed baking give the all important xanthan gum time to set and keep the bread from over-rising. This prep sounds fussy, but it's easy once you find yourself a heavy little pan that can go in the oven. It is worth it for the best-tasting GF bread!

Hearty, savory bread
I made this in my bread maker and it was super easy. The loaf comes out hearty and is easily cut into thin slices. I even used a vegan egg substitute with no ill effects. I love the nuts, seeds, and herbs in this bread - like a good old-fashioned German rye or pumpernickel. Definitely recommend for savory applications like sandwiches and buttered toast. Review by Jen / (Posted on 7/25/2011)
I'm addicted to this bread!
I absolutely love this bread. I am a big fan of rye bread, but after learning I was gluten intolerant, I had to stop eating it. The caraway in this bread mix makes it taste so much like rye. I use this bread for everyday turkey and swiss cheese sandwiches. I also use it for savory bread puddings and pot roast sandwiches. I make two smaller loaves at a time, and they are the perfect size for my sandwiches.

The only con is how fast it spoils. I'm going to start freezing it so it will last longer. Review by Twitch / (Posted on 7/21/2011)
Wow, a delicious + interesting GF bread
Here is a bread mix that has some flavor kick! I have been so dissappointed in store bought GF breads and most mixes. They are so boring and bland. This bread has texture and flavor. Plain, with olive oil, peanut butter this is great with breakfast or dinner. Thank you Red Mill. Suggestion: I tried this first with a regular breadmaker, = good. Then I tried with a convention breadmaker with GF setting, premixing the yeast and flour together, (not the same as recoomended), fantastic! raised the bread twice as much. This is a "hearty" bread but lighter in texture if you figure out the baking part. Review by Gareth, the the / (Posted on 6/14/2011)
2nd baking of this bread
I don't eat a lot of bread with my diet but once in a while I like to indulge. This is my second baking of this bread. It came out great just like all the time with the different breads. My wife doesn't care for this bread because of the caraway in it. She really likes a GF "spice bread mix" she found at a local store.|I was able to cut 21 slices rather than the 16 recommended.

I am Gluten Sensitive, and my Husband wanted to avoid Wheat, so we found this fantastic mix. He thought the caraway seed taste overwhekmed the taste, so we add a cup of Almond Meal (Trader Joe's - best price) and a little more water. It absolutely fixed the caraway issue, and it's delicious.

This gluten free bread mix really is one of the best I ever encountered texture-wise. It also doesn't dry out as quickly as the others.|The only hitch is the intense caraway flavor.

Gluten-Free doesn't mean taste-free
Wonderful product. I've been a bread hobbyist since I was a teenager, experimenting with flours and formulas was a favorite past time, so being diagnosed with celiac disease has been tough in more ways than one.

Excellent flavor and texture!
This bread is excellent! I was afraid to try it, because I love the GF Wonderful Bread Mix, and thought this couldn't possibly be as good. I was wrong -- this bread is every bit as good, and satisfies the need for a bread with a seedy taste. I have celiac disease, so I have to eat gluten-free, but I'd make this bread regardless!

Awesome texture and flavor!
What a surprise to have such wonderful flavor and texture in a gluten free bread. With the dark color and caraway seeds it reminds us of pumpernickel bread. We took it to a family gathering and it was a big hit. Also, I made it in my bread machine, it was nice and easy. I'll be making this bread again! Review by Teresa / (Posted on 1/10/2011)
GF whole grain bread hit the spot!
This bread was easy to make and preformed well. I loved the flavor and that it tasted a bit like rye bread.
