Cost to make The Best Gluten Free Vegan Bread

Have you ever wondered how much the Best Gluten Free Vegan Bread recipe costs to make?

While my kids were at school, I did a little math of my own to figure it out.  The exact cost will vary depending upon how much you pay for each ingredient but I will break down the cost according to prices I have found this fall, 2013.  Online prices tend to fluctuate often so like I said, this cost will vary.

NetGrocer.com has a sale right now of $20 off $50 with the code NETGROCER (which basically pays for shipping) and Bob's Red Mill is on sale for 50% off. (Please note these ingredients may be made in a facility with one of your allergens.  Please contact the manufacturer as always to make sure the products you use are safe for your needs!)

Millet flour (Netgrocer) $1.93/651g =$0.55 for amount used in recipe
Sorghum flour (Netgrocer) $2.25/623g = $0.62 for recipe
Potato Starch (Netgrocer) $2.43/680g = $0.51 for recipe
Tapioca Flour (Netgrocer) $2.13/567g = $0.45 for recipe
Arrowroot Flour (Vitacost) $6.55/567g = $1.35 for recipe
Xanthan Gum (Netgrocer) $6.40/226g = $0.20 for recipe
Salt (Amazon) $6.92/737g = $0.03 for recipe
Sugar (local store) $2.99/1814g = $0.07 for recipe
Red Star Yeast (Costco approx cost) $5/908g = $0.02 for recipe
Coconut Oil (Costco approx cost $16/1531g = $0.08 for recipe

$3.88 per loaf

Vitacost.com is the other place online that I tend to shop.  Both of these online stores tend to be a better price than my local natural foods store so I try to shop ahead and have these on hand.  If you go through my link, I will get $10 off my next purchase through their refer a friend program.  The same will apply to you if you refer friends, you can get $10 off your following purchases as well.  (Please note, other than the refer a friend Vitacost program, I am NOT being paid by either of these companies to write this post, it is strictly for your benefit to know where I like to shop and the prices I found there.)
