I made some burger buns yesterday and I have to say they were great! I actually liked my burger even more! I admit I get sick of wrapping my burger or hotdogs in lettuce so having a gluten free burger bun is nice. I have yet to find any low carb, gluten free burger buns. I made oopsies up until now, which were ok but annoying to make..(mostly cause I hate having to seperate egg whites and whisk)
I have made these buns three times now and the first time I used coconut oil, 2nd time I used butter. I really really like the taste of butter in these more than the coconut oil.
The recipe is for one single bun but I usually make 3 or 4 depending on how many eggs I have left at the time. Either way it’s VERY easy and VERY quick to make.
Ingredients for one single bun:
• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon coconut flour
• 1 tablespoon blanched almond flour
• 1 tablespoon coconut oil (olive oil or melted butter)
• Pinch salt
• 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
• 1/4 teaspoon poppy seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add all ingredients and blend together using a hand blender or small food processor. Let the batter settle for a few minutes to thicken.
Split the mixture into two and spoon onto oiled parchment paper to make two 3-inch diameter pools of batter. Top with additional seeds if desired.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Use each piece as top and bottom of a burger bun.
While it is baking you can throw your burger on the grill. If you’re lucky the burger will be done by the time the bun is cooked!
