How to Make Gluten-Free Croutons

  • Total Time: About 20 minutes
  • Yield: About 4 cups croutons 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Homemade gluten-free croutons are SO easy to make at home and taste better than anything you’ll find at a store! 



  • 6 Slices gluten-free bread, diced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (or melted butter, ghee, or vegan butter)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp pepper, 2-3 tsp. fresh herbs (like rosemary, dill, or oregano) or 1/4-1/2 tsp dried herbs (like dill, rosemary, or Italian seasoning), 1 clove garlic, finely minced, or 1/4 tsp. garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine diced bread, olive oil or butter, salt, and any herbs or seasonings you’d like to use.
  3. Stir to coat well and spread the bread out on the remaining baking sheet. Give the baking sheet a shake to distribute the bread well. (You don’t want any large clumps)
  4. Put the croutons in the oven and bake croutons 10-15 minutes, or until they’re golden. I like to stir my croutons halfway through the cooking time to allow them to cook evenly
  5. Let croutons cool slightly and enjoy!

Store cooled leftover croutons in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2-3 days.
