Saved by the buns: Quick and healthy (Gluten free, Vegan & Paleo) Buns

If you have followed me, you will know that I embraced a Paleo’esque way of eating almost three years ago. Why? Because I needed to put an end to the inflammation in my body.  Changing my diet like this made me feel much better. Yes, it was hard at first, but since it makes me feel amazing, I have not looked back since. If you are interested in how I did this, check out my blog post, where I talk about how I overcame the challenges associated with changing what you eat.

But I love good food. All kinds of food. Are with me on this?

And I was not going to give that up. So, to be successful with eating healthier, I needed to find a way that I could still enjoy my food. And this started me off on my paleo recipe search efforts. I’ve been collecting great recipes ever since. And once in a while, I share them on my blog. Here a couple of the other recipes I have shared: Awesome Almond Chocolate Chunk Protein Power Balls,  Quick and Delicious Best Ever Paleo Sheppard’s Pie, Healthy Antioxidant Breakfast Bowl, Scrumptious Pumpkin Quick Bread, Quick and Easy Yummy Raw Hummus, Simple Home Made Coconut Yoghurt and Crunchy Paleo Granola.

One of the hardest parts about changing your diet, I find, is that you have to abstain from foods which used to be the basis of your diet. For me, this was all things baked. For example, bread, buns and crackers.

When you have not had bread in a long time, being able to make your own is a game changer!

If you are trying this type of diet, you will know what I mean. If you have been meaning to eat this way, perhaps this recipe will help you take the leap? With this in mind, I am sharing a Paleo bun recipe this week. It is so easy to make, versatile and yummy! It will change your Paleo/Keto world.

Smear it with vegan butter, fruit spreads or honey – you’ll know what to do!

In order to qualify for my collection, a recipe needs to fit these criteria: Ingredients I can easily have on hand and/or find my neighbourhood stores. All-natural ingredients with no unhealthy additives. Really quick to make. Taste great to the point that the rest of my family will eat them too. A new work friend shared it with me. It is based on Maria Emmerich’s Keto bread recipe. No need for further introductions. Here it is!

Enjoy these guilt free buns with their crispy crust and soft, moist center.

Make it as is, or change up the nuts and seeds. Try adding different spices, like Italian seasoning, anise, Herb de Provence, to name a few. Or perhaps add some chopped olives for a change? Or walnuts? The choice is yours!

Quick and healthy (Gluten free, Vegan & Paleo) Buns

Makes 6 small buns

1 ¼ cups almond flour

5 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

1 cup water

2 tsp cider vinegar

3 egg whites (6 tbsp)

2 tbsp seeds (for example: sesame, poppy, pumpkin)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit and oil a baking sheet.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl, making a hole in the center of the mount
  3. Bring the water to a boil
  4. Add vinegar and egg whites in the center of the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Add boiling water while beating with a hand mixer for no more than 30 seconds until the dough is thick like play dough.
  6. To prevent the dough from sticking to your fingers, moisten your hands with a bit of olive oil and form 6 buns.
  7. Place them on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with your seeds of choice (optional).
  8. Bake on the lower rack of your oven for 50-60 minutes.
  9. They are done when tapping the bottom of the bun produces a hollow sound.
  10. Serve right away or wait until they have cooled off. Yummy.

Bet you are going to wish you made more!

See how easy that is!  You can serve them up with vegan butter and jam, eat them with your eggs in the morning, make sandwiches out of them or eat them alongside a nice bowl of soup.

Bon appetite,

Simone
