Really, this bread is soft and chewy and makes a FANTASTIC sandwich bread.

1 1/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup teff flour
2/3 cup potato starch
2/3 cup tapioca starch
1/3 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon guar gum
2 teaspoons (1 pkg) gelatin
2 egg whites
In a small bowl mix together water, yeast, honey, oil, and vinegar. Let sit for 3-5 minutes or until yeast is dissolved and beginning to proof.
In a mixing bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until combined. Add in the egg whites. Once combined, mix on high speed for 3-5 minutes.
Grease a medium loaf pan. Spoon the batter into the pan, smooth the top with wet fingers or a wet spatula. Cover and let rise in a warm, humid environment for 20 minutes. (If you are like me and live in a dry, cold environment, do the following: heat a very wet tea towel in the microwave until it is piping hot. Quickly open the microwave, place the loaf of bread inside and place the hot towel on top and shut the microwave again. It should stay warm and moist in there for 20 minutes.
As the bread is rising, preheat the oven to 400F.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, covering with aluminum foil after the first 10 minutes. After 50 minutes, check the internal temperature of the bread. It is done when it reaches 205F.
The bread will last a couple of days on the counter/in the fridge. If you don't plan on eating it that fast, slice it and freeze it.
