Barley Bread


This is a wheat-free recipe but does contain gluten.


  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar, divided
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups barley flour
  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour


  1. Lightly oil a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Place yeast in a small bowl with 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar and 1/2 cup warm water. Put in a warm place to proof.
  3. Put remaining 1/2 cup warm water into a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup of barley flour and mix vigorously. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar, oil and salt; mix well. Add softened yeast mixture and beat briskly, then add bean flour and enough remaining barley flour to make dough that can be kneaded.
  4. Place on a barley-floured work surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Shape into two round loaves and place on prepared cookie sheet; slash top of loaves diagonally across tops. Let rise until doubled in bulk. Oil tops lightly, if desired, for more crispness.
  5. Heat oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 1 hour using middle rack of oven. Remove from cookie sheet onto wire rack and cool.

Makes 2 rounds (20 slices).
