Gluten-free and vegan sourdough baguette

Gluten-free sourdough baguette – French bread


This gluten-free sourdough baguette is a good recipe for baking beginners. Because of its long and slim shape, the dough cook evenly and it there are no risks of under cooking. The dough comes together quickly and then you only have to wait for it to rise.

The recipe includes only naturally gluten-free flours, easy to find. No gums or commercial blends are among the ingredients. Since there are no eggs or dairy products, this bread is also vegan and lactose-free.

The baguette shape is ideal to slice and use to make bruschettas, to go with soup or as an appetizer. Moreover, this type of bread is ideal to make sandwich and to use in bento box for school or work lunch.

Tips and replacement

Since there are very few ingredients in this recipe, they are all quite fundamental. The only replacement I can suggest is the buckwheat flour. I successfully tried replacing it with the same quantity of millet or teff flour, or with a mix of the two. By doing this, your baguette will also appear lighter in color.

You can also top the baguette with sesame seeds, poppyseeds or flax seed to add a personal touch.

Prep time


Cooking time


Resting time




  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp / 100 g rice flour

  • ¾ cup / 100 g buckwheat flour

  • ½ cup / 100 g potato starch

  • 1+ ¼ cup / 300 g active sourdough

  • 2 tbsp / 15 g psyllium husks

  • 1+½ cup / 370 g water

  • 1 tbsp extravirgin olive oil

  • 2 tsp fine sea salt

How to

  • In a large bowl put together the active sourdough, the psyllium husks and the water. Stir the mixture quickly and well so that the sourdough is evenly mixed with the water, a whisk is suitable for this. Or you can do this directly in the stand mixer.
  • Add one after the other the rice flour, buckwheat flour and potato starch into the same mixing bowl.
  • Knead the dough with the electric whisks or the leaf hook of the stand mixer. When everything is smooth, add the olive oil and the salt.
  • Cover the dough and place it in a quiet, warm place for 3-4 hours so that the sourdough can work. I usually let it rise in the turned off oven. The dough is ready when it shows a significant rise.
  • Just before the resting time is over, preheat the oven to 440°F/225°C.
  • Dust a work surface with rice flour, then roll out the dough onto it and flour also on top of it. Divide the dough into two parts and carefully roll them out into baguette shapes. If the dough is still sticky, simply add a little more flour.
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and make some cuts at the top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes until the baguette is nice and brown.
  • Let it cool before slicing.

  3. I followed your recipe exactly. After 30 minutes it was still Raw in the center… Lovely crust…..I will try again but bake at higher temp and longer time

    • Hi Deirdre,
      Thank you for your feedback. This kind of results depends a lot on the oven performance and how thin you shape the log, so I agree to bake them for 5-10 minutes longer. I hope this works out for you, this bread is very good!

  4. Let’s know when you have created a sourdough ciabatta bread / rolls , there’s plenty out GF using yeast

  5. Just reading so do you think adding the 2 table of rice flour to the dough would be better just to do incase of a doughy centre , otherwise no going back & fixing that
    Also you added salt twice in the recipe

    • Hi Kay,
      It really depends on the rice flour you are using: if it is an organic brow rice flour, you can keep the amount indicated. If you are using a finely milled white rice flour, it’s better to add 2 tbsp of flour. This is because the two flours have different water absorption capacity.
      Thanks for noticing the salt!

    Hello Marta,

    The bread turned out very nice,crunchy on the outside but… very doughy on the inside… Is there a way to solve this issue? Yours doesnt look doughy and wet on the picture… Have a nice day!

    • Hello Sven,
      I’m glad you liked it! If the dough is a bit too wet, you can add 2 tbsp of rice flour to the dough. This will make the inside better!
      Let me know if you try the recipe again, and have a nice day you too!
