This is a simple gluten-free bread crumb recipe that’s also vegan and paleo. It’s a great substitute for traditional bread crumbs that not only have gluten, but other unwanted ingredients.

How To Make Gluten-Free Bread Crumbs

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste


  • 1/2 cup organic almond flour
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic garlic powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan salt


  1. Add all ingredients into a small bowl and stir well to combine.
  2. For a finer texture: grind the nutritional yeast in a coffee grinder.
  3. Seasonings: adjust the cayenne pepper and pink himalayan salt to your preference.
  4. Use with any recipe that calls for traditional bread crumbs.
  5. Store in an air-tight glass container.
  6. Enjoy!


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.

    1. Thank you for posting this! I\’m vegan and had to go mostly AIP/low histamine for health reasons last year. This is a recipe that actually fits in my diet!!! (well except the pepper, but that\’s easy to omit!) I\’m also going to add some Italian seasoning and use them to make vegan black bean, mushroom, and walnut meatballs to eat with spaghetti squash and roasted veggies! I\’m super, super excited because this will add some variety to my diet that has been hard to come by and sadly lacking. Plus, I love me some nutritional yeast! Thank you again!
