Gluten-Free Maple Walnut Bread Recipe

We’ve all heard the buzz about the gluten-free lifestyle—the various health benefits, the ease of gluten substitutes, etc.  However, “gluten-free” can too often translate into flavor-free.  Cue Pure Maple Syrup sourced naturally from Canada. Maple syrup is the perfect wholesome ingredient to add depth and complexity to gluten-free dishes that tend to be bland.

We were surprised by the lite, sweet taste of Cur Pure Maple Syrup  It is not as thick as the syrup we are used to, but it was an easy adjustment.  We were able to slip this past the little man.   He could tell the difference.

As an all-natural, gluten-free and vegan sweetener, maple fits a variety of lifestyle and dietary needs, and can easily be substituted into your favorite recipes. In fact, they have created our own Gluten-Free Maple Walnut Bread recipe, developed in their maple test kitchen for your taste buds’ enjoyment. You won’t miss the gluten in this recipe and everyone is sure to enjoy it, even gluten lovers!


  • 2 ¼ cups gluten free flour blend (such as King Arthur)
  • 2/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 2/3 cup potato starch
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine flours, starch, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter turns a nut brown color. Remove from heat.  Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl combine maple syrup, buttermilk and eggs.  Stir in browned butter.
  5. Add wet ingredients to the dry.  Stir until just combined.  Stir in walnuts.
  6. Pour into a well-greased 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  7. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, until risen and a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.

Please note: Maple is a better, all-natural sweetener choice, though it is still a sugar and it should be enjoyed in moderation.

We have been using in moderation.  Last night we added Cue Pure to our barbeque sauce and it added the right amount of sweetness and thicken the sauce just a bit.

A little can go a long way with Cue Pure Maple Syrup.
