  • 8 slices gluten free bread * see note

Optional Seasonings

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Spread out the bread slices on a parchment papepr lined baking sheet and bake at 325º F for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the bread over and bake an additional 5 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Tear up the bread in large chunks and add them to a food processor.
  • Add optional spices.
  • Pulse grind the bread until you get the desired size or texture of bread crumbs or panko.


  1. You can use any gluten free bread you like but I do not advise flavored bread like cinnamon raisin.
  2. You can bake to dry your bread, or let it sit out for a day until the bread is hardened.
  3. If you don't have a food processor, when the bread is hard you can put it into a sealed bag and smash, roll, grind it with a rolling pin.
  4. These bread crumbs will keep up to 1 ½ weeks in the pantry or 4 weeks in the refrigerator if stored in an air-tight container.
