Gluten Free Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe
When I was growing up, my mom cooked virtually everything from scratch. They didn’t have all the pre-made mixes in the grocery store like we do today.
One of my favorites was mom’s Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Because Henry has some gluten sensitivities, I tweaked her recipe and made a Gluten Free Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe.
This bread only takes a few minutes to mix together. Within a few minutes of baking time, you get the most intoxicating smells coming from the oven! I don’t care if my kids are dead asleep, if they smell this Gluten Free Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe, they are up an pacing the floor waiting for the finished product! For another yummy and quick breakfast, you may want to try my Nutty Oatmeal Buttermilk Waffles or my Super Quick and Easy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins.
I think the secret to this great tasting Gluten Free Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe is in the sugary sweet cinnamon crumble in the middle. It is just about the best thing since, well, sliced white bread! We eat it warm with the a cold glass of milk. I will wrap it up and put a slice in the kid’s lunchbox. IYou need to try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert after our evening meal. Yum!
You know me, I am all about versatile recipes, and this is one of them! I usually make a double batch so I can keep one and give one. When Caitlin has an early robotics or scholar’s bowl meeting, I will send a loaf of this Gluten Free Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe for the kids. They cannot get enough of it!

Cherri Megasko saysApril 3, 2015 at 7:58 pm
I’ve had a love affair with quick breads since I was about 11 years old. That’s when I started to cook, and it seemed like I could always find a quick bread recipe for which we had all the ingredients in the house. And now that we know how gluten can affect our health, it’s even better to see these gluten-free recipes.
Yona Williams saysApril 3, 2015 at 4:10 pm
Looking at this recipe, if I could find a good way to modify the flour (find the right substitute), I can use this to fit my current dietary restrictions…hopefully. It looks soooo good.
Shannon Gurnee saysApril 3, 2015 at 10:04 pm
I need some more bread recipes. This recipe looks and sounds delicious!

Vasudja saysMarch 14, 2016 at 1:31 am
I came across your recipe and I want to make it for my kids. I want to know how much xanthum gum you have added since I don’t see any in the ingredients list.
Vasudja saysMarch 14, 2016 at 10:52 am
Thanks for your quick reply
mycraftingworld saysJanuary 16, 2017 at 7:59 am
I love cinnamon bread. I will try this version. There just isn’t bad Cinnamon Swirl Bread.
Katie saysJuly 28, 2017 at 1:48 pm
I have tried this twice now. The first time, it sunk in the middle. Still edible (crumbly), but tasted good. The second time, I used coconut oil and it was spilling over the sides into the over. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions? They don’t see KA flour at my grocery store, so I am using Bob’s Red Mill.
Mary Songer saysOctober 20, 2017 at 2:43 pm
This does look good. I’ve tried some gluten free baked goods and they weren’t very good. This one does look just like the ones that have gluten. I hear that if you give up gluten some people feel a big difference in their health. I’m thinking of trying that diet.
