Making wheat/gluten free toast in a household that also makes ordinary toast can be challenging, we never use a pop-up toaster to avoid any chance of cross-contamination. Simply use your grill/broiler instead, but make sure you wash the grill pan thoroughly first.


1 loaf [1 loaf] wheat & gluten free bread
1 [1] heart shaped cookie cutter
butter, low fat spread or margarine (optional)


  1. Slice the bread into approximately 5-7mm thick slices (¼"). Use a sharp knife as this type of bread is usually very fragile, we would suggest that you avoid using the pure rice breads as they will crumble when cut thinly. Alternatively buy ready sliced gluten free bread, there are many really good breads available.
  2. Lay the slices on a cutting board, and using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut out bread shaped hearts.
  3. Toast bread hearts on both sides until lightly browned.
  4. Serve while hot.
Useful tip: if you decide to butter the toast then make sure that you don't do it too far ahead of serving as the toast will go soggy. Also putting butter (or alternatives) onto very hot toast can soften it, leave the toast 1 minute before buttering.
