Easy French Bread -Sugar-free, oil-free

This recipe is super quick to make if you have a bread maker. If you don’t, you can make it by hand or using the dough hook on your mixer. As you can tell, we like a lot of bread in our family. One loaf lasted only one meal.


– 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 1/4 cup water
– 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
– 1 1/4 teaspoon yeast

1. Put all of your ingredients into a bread machine on the dough cycle.
2. After the cycle is done, remove the dough onto a lightly floured surface and shape into two loafs. Put the loafs onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
3. Score each loaf diagonally with a knife. This will help the bread rise evenly.
4. Cover and let rise until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 400F
5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly brown. It will sound hollow when tapped.

I'm a plant-based distance runner and mother of two young girls. I enjoy making healthy recipes and experimenting with food. I also love to garden, so you will see many seasonal recipes that use what is currently growing in my backyard. I have a HBSc. in Nutrition and a Doctorate in Education and this background provides me with the skills necessary to pursue my passion - educating others on healthy eating. I don't count calories, so you won't find any nutritional information in my recipes. However, I strive to make each recipe healthy enough to fuel you and your family through the day.
