Breadmaker recipe for gluten-free high protein bread!

I tend to cut very thick slices of bread so your mileage may vary! This is a recipe I've found and tweaked. You can make your own changes if you like. Substitute the honey and eggs for a vegan option, try different flours, try different milk - the original recipe called for buttermilk. I've used this recipe with different flours (soy flour, brown rice flour, different combinations of all these flours) and it is very forgiving, especially if you are already used to these flours and the flavors they can bring. Over 11 grams of high-quality protein and contains about 960 mg of omega-3 per slice. Also cuts very nicely for a gluten-free bread and freezes very well. Even my husband and daughter, both of whom don't need to be gluten-free, have given up their store bought breads for this!

Chocolate Flax Muffins (gluten free)

Mostly sugar-free, could be completely sugar-free if you sub blueberries for chocolate pieces. Gluten free and made to suit our family's needs. Contains 2133 mg of Omega 3 per muffin if you make 18 muffins. Very tasty and satisfying!

Cornbread Blueberry Muffins (gluten-free, low/GI-friendly sugar)

Many of the changes in this are things I added to suit my own family's nutritional needs. If you choose to omit the hemp protein powder and Benefiber, also omit about .5 cup of milk. The blueberries might not be as dense as you like them; my husband tends to prefer more blueberries than this. Still very sweet and buttery-tasting; the honey and stevia are there to combat insulin resistance. Substitute with Splenda if you prefer (we are staying away from chemical sweeteners in my house). For those not used to other grains, this can have a gritty texture and a different/herbal kind of flavor due to the hemp powder. Good gluten free option that's full of fiber and protein so it really stays with you all morning!
