When my son was first diagnosed with food allergies, one of the most difficult things I found to replace was bread. It's something he REALLY enjoyed to eat and I needed to find a substitute fast! Initially we still had wheat so I needed to find a safe bread that was free of egg, soy and dairy which proved to be so difficult at the time I borrowed my mother in law's bread maker and got to work.
I got really good at making this bread and he loved it..... Then we lost gluten and rice as well with his diagnosis of eosinophilic oesophagitis and that made it even harder!
That was quite a few years ago now and I'm happy report that there are heaps of easy options now if you want to make some bread at home. As you get more experienced you might even like to create your own recipe with a blend of flours but mixes are a great place to start and handy on busy days too!
This is guide of the bread mixes we have at Happy tummies to make it easy for you to select something for your family.
