Acorn Bread (Gluten-Free)

Refer to the recipe entry explaining how to make acorn meal. This is a variation on a cornbread recipe that includes acorn meal, which gives the bread a distinctive unusual nutty flavor.


½ c. acorn meal
¾ c. yellow cornmeal
¾ c. brown rice flour
¼ c. flax seed meal
2½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
4 tbsp. maple syrup
2 eggs
1½ c. plain yogurt
¼ c. water
¼ c. butter


Combine the dry ingredients and blend well. Beat the eggs. Melt the butter. Combine the wet ingredients. Put the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend just until moistened and no dry pockets of dry ingredients remain.

Put the batter in an eight-inch square baking dish. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 425º for 25-30 minutes. Insert a knife to see if it’s done and continue to bake for a few more minutes if the inside is still wet.

Eat well, be well, live deliciously!


  1. Hi. Made the bread yesterday. Loved it , as did my wide and colleagues. Can't wait to make another loaf and start to experiment more with acorn flour.

  2. I'm so glad you found this recipe useful. When I made it for my son and his girlfriend, they loved it, but my son said, "Mom, just don't tell us what's in it." I have a friend who throws acorn meal into waffles and pancakes.
