  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour (we prefer bread, can use all-purpose or whole wheat - see post for details)
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy free milk (we like oat - can use any non-strongly flavored dairy free milk)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (see post about other sugar source options)


  • In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, and salt. 
  • Then, add in the dairy free milk and maple syrup. 
  • Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined.  Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.  
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
    *If you are oil free, then just make sure sides of bowl are floured, or use a silicone bowl to easily get it out
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • About 25 minutes before the rising time is up, add a cold dutch oven to the oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees F, 
  • Place risen dough on a floured surface. 
  • Sprinkle a little flour on top and pull the sides of the dough onto the top. 
  • Place the dough on a sheet of parchment paper. 
  • Carefully place the dough and parchment paper into the dutch oven and place the lid ON. Bake for 30 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven and check out bread. Either remove and let cool and eat as is, or remove parchment paper and lid and continue to cook for 10-30 minutes until desired crunchiness of bread crust is achieved.
