This is enough to make two loaves and freeze one for later. Although it didn't last long in our house!

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type B (3 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (2 beneficials)
  • Type O (0 beneficials)
  • Baked Good
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup oat bran 
  • 1 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup sweet rice flour (or sticky rice flour)
  • 1/2 cup millet seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon xantham gum
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons vinegar (BTD compliant version)
  • 1 sachet yeast
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar (for proofing yeast)
  • 1 Tablespoon molasses
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water 
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
How to make it:
  1. Make sure all dry ingredients and the eggs are at room temperature.
  2. Grease the bottom of a 10 inch loaf pan or two 8 inch pans.
  3. Heat the oven to 200 degrees and then turn off.
  4. In the bowl of your stand mixer, sift together the dry ingredients.
  5. In a separate medium bowl, mix eggs, molasses, vinegar, and melted butter.
  6. Heat your water for proofing the yeast.
  7. In a small prep bowl, stir together your active dry yeast and one teaspoon of sugar.
  8. Add 1/4 cup of the heated water to the yeast mixture. Let the yeast sit for 10 minutes.
  9. It should be foamy and active! If not, start over with another packet of yeast.
  10. Once yeast is ready, add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients.
  11. Then add the yeast mixture.
  12. Then slowly add the remaining water (should still be warm) to achieve the right consistency of the batter. Since different brands, flours, measuring techniques act different I do not recommend just blindly dumping in the rest of the water but adding gradually instead. The dough should be like very stiff cake batter.
  13. Beat dough on high for about 15 minutes in mixer.
  14. If you accidentally add too much water simply add a little rice flour until you achieve the dough consistency you are after.
  15. Put the dough in prepared pans and place in oven to rise for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
  16. Put plastic wrap or a towel over the pan.
  17. Once the dough has risen to the top of the pan, bake the bread for 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until internal temperature reaches 190 degrees.
