Hi I am new to this site.  I have just started on a wheat free diet.  I only have about 2 kilos to lose but I suffer from various allergies and two forms of arthritis.  I want to make bread in my bread maker but I don't know if I can use yeast.  Can someone please advise me.

Thanks Angie

We don't use any grains or flour that requires a bread making machine or the use of yeast.  You might google Gourmet Girl Cooks for some good recipes for rolls.  Because we use nut  flours, the items don't need to rise.  You can put your bread machine away.

Welcome to the forum.

It sound like you have some autoimmune issues, which usually starts because of a leaky gut.  Undigested proteins then leak through gut causing an autoimmune reaction like arthritis.

One of the causes of a leaky gut is gluten, so it's a good think you are going wheat free.

I'm not a bread person myself, but I think that most people who make breads are going with almond flour, which does not need yeast.
