Today I’m going to share with you How To Make Gluten-Free Bread Crumbs and it’s so simple it takes only a few minutes to make.
Not only is it made with ony 5 clean ingredients, but it’s also raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo-friendly.
It’s a great substitute for traditional bread crumbs that not only have gluten, but other unwanted ingredients.
Here is the horrible 50 ingredient list for a popular store-bought brand:

Where to Buy: If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door!
Tip #1: If you have the large flake nutritional yeast and you want it in a finer texture (like a Parmesan cheese consistency), you can grind it up in a coffee grinder.
Tip #2: I store my extra bread crumbs in an air-tight glass container.
Tip #3: You can adjust the seasonings to your preference…I like mine a little spicy so I use 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper instead of 1/4 teaspoon.
