Failproof 5-ingredient homemade Low FODMAP dutch oven bread recipe. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. For bread machine or by hand.
One of the biggest challenges of the Low FODMAP diet is that, at least during the first phases, we have to stop eating regular bread. It’s not so much because of the gluten, but because of the fructans in wheat bread.
You regularly ask me for bread recipes that look like real bread. Well, after 7 years of trying breads, I finally got it!!!
This low FODMAP dutch oven bread is the closest I’ve ever been to a normal bread for 3 reasons:
- the crust is crunchy
- the crumb is soft and airy
- and it tastes great!
And the secret to this low FODMAP bread is…
…..to bake it in a pan with the oven at high temperatures. And it’s not a new idea! Surely you remember the famous and viral no knead bread.
For better results I recommend a cast iron pan. A stainless steel pan(no plastics), an oven-proof glass dish with a lid or a cake tin well covered with aluminum foil will also do the trick.

Low FODMAP Dutch Oven Bread
- 11.8 fl oz | 350ml water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 21 oz | 600g all purpose gluten free and low FODMAP flour blend
- 1 tsp salt
- 0.35 oz | 10g dry yeast
- Place all the ingredients in the bread machine or in a large bowl if done by hand. Start by adding the water (if done by hand, water must be warm) and oil, followed by the flour and salt, finishing with the yeast.
- In the bread machine – Use the 1h30 program that kneads and leavens (Exo. Kenwood program 10). After 5 minutes, use a spatula to peel off the dough from the edges.
- By hand – Mix the ingredients well by hand for a few minutes and knead into a ball. Let the dough rest for an hour and a half, covered with a kitchen towel.
- Place a covered pan in the empty oven (without dough) and preheat to 480ºF | 250ºC (approx. 20 min). Once the time is up, remove the pan and cover with parchment paper (be careful not to burn yourself). Place the dough, cover and return to the oven. After 30 minutes, remove the lid and let the bread brown for approximately 15-20 minutes or to taste.
- Like all gluten-free breads, it dries quickly. I recommend slicing and freezing. A few minutes before consuming, defreeze in the microwave and / or toast and you're ready to eat!
