Gluten-Free, Milk-Free, Egg-Free Bread Made with Sweet Potato Substituting for Egg
By Megan Stone


1 box of King Arthur Gluten-Free Bread Mix (contains 1 yeast packet)
1 ¾ cup of lukewarm (about 95 degrees) milk alternative beverage (I use So Delicious coconut milk)
¼ cup grapeseed oil (any oil or butter* will work)
¾ cup of sweet potato puree (This replaces 3 eggs. Tip: when replacing an egg, use 1/4 cup of fruit or sweet potato puree)

1. Warm milk on stove.
2. Place milk, butter/oil, sweet potato puree, and yeast in stand-up mixer and mix well.
3. Add flour mixture one cup at a time and scrape the sides between each added cup.
4. Once all the flour has been added, beat at medium-high speed for 2 minutes.sweet_potato_bread
5. Lightly grease loaf pan and add bread mixture to the pan.
6. Wet fingers and spread bread mixture evenly in loaf pan.
7. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F.
8. Keep bread mixture in a warm location to rise about 20-40 minutes, or until the bread rises to the top of the loaf pan.
9. Bake 50-60 minutes.
10. Remove from loaf pan and place on cooling rack.

*If you use butter, this recipe will not be free of milk. There are milk-free and soy-free margarines available.

I tried this bread and my family loved it.  My older son who doesn't have any food allergies  ate 2 slices with butter and wanted more.  My husband didn't think it tasted like gluten free bread at all!


Thanks for this recipe.  I was using egg replacer before and it didn't have much flavor. I like the extra vitamins that we are getting by using sweet potato too. ��

This is the bread my son depends on...I've been making it for over 2 years now.  We use applesauce to replace the egg, so I guess we could call ours applesauce bread!?  Going to try it with sweet potatoes. Sounds yummy!


Note that this calls for a box of BREAD mix, not just the flour mix.  There are other ingredients in there as part of the mix besides just the flour/starch.  Here is a PDF of the bread mix label.

I need to check and see if my kids can even have yeast but I was wondering if anyone has tried this with a different flour mix, my kids cannot have rice, which is in the King Arthur mix. Sounds so good and we would love to have a non soy bread or cracker!,,
