Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread


Credit for this lovely loaf goes to Mr. Bob’s Red Mill and his GF Cinnamon Raisin Bread Mix.

Credit is due when credit is due, right?

My thoughts………


  • Easy peasy to make.  Dissolve the yeast in some water, add some oil, an egg and throw in the flour mix.  Mix for about 2 minutes and spoon into a baking pan.
  • Smells fabulous while baking.  Smells fabulous while baking.  Smells fabulous while baking.
  • Fresh out of the oven, you don’t even need butter, pb, honey, cream cheese, etc.  It feels, it tastes and it looks like REAL bread.


  • You have to wait about an hour for the batter to rise and then it takes another hour for the bread to bake.
  • Dries out very easily. I made the loaf last night and by morning, I could taste a dryer texture.

Would I buy this again? Most definitely.

Despite the dryness, I discovered a solution to maintain the freshness.

I simply cut the loaf into individual slices, wrapped them in plastic wrap and placed them in the freezer.  This afternoon, I took one slice, microwaved it for about 30 seconds, toasted it and then topped it with honey walnut cream cheese. YUM. 

I’m such a carbo-lover.

To make the cream cheese, I took reduced fat philly cream cheese and added honey & chopped walnuts  to taste. Easy peasy, just like mixing the bread. 🙂

Here’s something ironic.  Before I was diagnosed with Celiac, I was pretty much a cake/muffin/cookie/bread mix snob.  I considered myself a true baker and preferred to make breads/desserts/goodies from scratch.  Now post Celiac diagnosis, I find myself relying A LOT on gf mixes or all purpose type baking flours.  I guess it’s the working mom coming out in me…convenience, convenience, convenience.  It is just easier to buy a bread mix than take the time(that I don’t have) to buy 3-5 different gf flours and experiment.  At least I know gf mixes don’t have all of the preservatives and filler ingredients like “regular” mixes. 

Your thoughts?

Sweet dreams,
