About this recipe: This is the first gluten free bread I've made that I've been truly happy with. It's got a lovely nutty taste. It is made with quinoa, sorghum and tapioca flours and studded with sunflower seeds.

  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 475ml warm water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried active yeast
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 250g quinoa flour
  • 135g sorghum flour
  • 135g tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 110g sunflower seeds

  2. Combine quinoa flour, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, salt and xanthan gum in the bowl of a stand mixer. With the mixer running on low speed, pour in yeast mixture. Mix until dough is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Add sunflower seeds; mix until incorporated.
  3. Line a 23cm loaf tin with baking paper; pour in dough. Cover with cling film. Let rise in a warmplace , free from any draughts, for about 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  5. Bake loaf in preheated oven until browned and cooked through, about 50 to 60 minutes.
  6. Turn loaf out onto a wire cooling rack. Leave to cool completely, about 1 hour, before slicing.
