Everyone is scrambling to find the supplies needed to feed their families right now. One of the biggest issues in my local store has been the lack of bread on the shelves. Whether it’s a lack of supply or individuals wiping it out as soon as it hits the shelf, I have decided it was time for me to learn how to whip up homemade bread for my family. The problem was, while I could find flour, I couldn’t find yeast at my local grocery store. These recipes were my solution!
Yeast Free Bread Recipes
While yeast in a bread recipe will give you the softer and often fluffier bread you are used to having for a sandwich, it isn’t necessary to have a tasty bread. Many bread options that I love don’t need any yeast at all! Most of these recipes will be denser than your normal bread, but they are a great substitute when you are in a pinch and need something easy and fast at home.
Crock Pot Irish Soda Bread
Did you know you can make bread in your slow cooker? I sure didn’t! This recipe is a classic Irish bread I see around St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s a perfect option for use at any time. Some will add fruit or spices to the bread, but as it is listed, it turns out as a beautiful bread to serve with some butter or for use with meats as a sandwich.

Low Carb Keto Bread Recipe
While this isn’t probably what most think of when they look for a bread recipe that doesn’t have yeast, it definitely hits the mark. Rather than yeast and all-purpose flour, this recipe uses almond flour and baking powder. It is definitely a dense bread, but it works beautifully for sandwiches, toast, and even French toast.

Emergency No Yeast Bread
This one is fast and easy, and in my experience, it feels a bit more like a biscuit than bread. It is easy to form into a loaf and works well with any need you would use regular bread for, but I love it especially with fresh butter and jam.

Honey Beer Bread
Beer bread has long been a favorite for many, but it can have a bit too “tangy” flavor. This recipe is excellent with the addition of honey. If you have beer in the refrigerator right now, use it for a fresh-baked loaf of bread everyone enjoys!
