Happy Monday! I’ve got a really good Polenta Bread recipe for you. Perfect for November when it’s getting colder outside and you want to drink tea and have delicious slice of bread in front of the fire/tv.
This is one of the super simple recipes that I want my teenager to know by heart so he can whip up a gluten-free tasty loaf just like that!
Hope you like it!

-1 egg replacer
-1 Tablespoon vinegar
-4 tablespoons Maple Syrup
-6 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

Searching for London’s best gluten-free Pizza, Bread and Burger?
The below establishments are in my opinion the crème de la crème in our great city!
BAKERY: Beyond Bread
The round sourdough bread in the below picture is to die for!
I buy 2 every time and slice one up and pop it in the freezer.
I don’t like the taste or smell of almost all gluten-free breads, but this is on a completely different level. I could live on it!
They also make fantastic cinnamon rolls (or bulle as we say where I come from) croissants and cakes.
Stock up in Fitzrovia, Islington or Selfridges
Hamburger Place: Honest Burgers
Now, I have to admit that I’m not a huge hamburger fan but with a teen and a tween boy, this is where we spend a lof of family time. The gluten-free burger bread is really good, the fries are gluten-free and delicious and so are the union rings! With restaurants all over London you are always close to an Honest burger.
Pizzeria: Zia Lucia
I didn’t used to eat a lot of pizza..
If I took the boys to Pizza Express I always ordered the salad. But with a brand new Zia Lucia a minute from my front door I’ve turned into a Pizza Monster! I’m not exaggerating when I say they make the worlds best pizza. The gluten-free Focaccia is also incredibly tasty.
(The gluten-free pizzas are cooked in the same oven as the non- gluten-free, but the super friendly Italian staff were happy for us to bring foil to minimise contamination). Zia Lucia has 2 restaurants one in Brook Green and one on Holloway Road.
I can’t recommend these raw flat breads made from sprouted buckwheat enough.
Being raw they are not baked but dehydrated in 40 celsius.
They are gluten, wheat and yeast free and really nutritious, perfect as an afternoon snack when you need a little pick me up.
My favorite is the Raw Onion Bread with lashings of organic butter.
The Chocolate bread is surprisingly good with cheddar cheese. And the Chia bread and Broccoli bread are is also very good.
Unfortunately the rest of the family are not to keen, or actually it’s quite good, I can have them all to my self, they are not super cheap £7 for 4 slices, 350g and £4.25 for 2 slices, 170g.
Growing up in Sweden hard crunchy flat breads are a staple with every meal, maybe my utterly british boys are just not used to it. Yet.
You can buy Pura Vidas raw bread here.
