Paleo Burger Buns





So this is an easy take on the Paleo bread recipe, turned into a bun and i use them for burgers and sandwiches. They are pretty tasty with a little jam or almond butter on them if you are craving a Paleo PB&J. The are also pretty good as a side "bread" for a stew or soup dish. The consistent is such that you could actually dip them!

Mix 3/4 cup almond butter with 4 egg yolks (whisk/whip the egg whites until semi-stiff). One the egg yolks are mixed into the almond butter, add the egg whites. This should start to look like batter. Add 1/4 cup almond flour (you can toss in some other nuts and seeds too, but the base (60%) should be almonds), 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1/4 tsp aluminum free baking powder. Pour this batter into greased muffin tins and sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. Bake in a 350 F preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when stick in the middle of a roll.

Once cooked, simply slice in half, dress with some Paleo mayo, or other Paleo condiments, and voilĂ , a burger on a bun!

Enjoy!

  1. Since we are starting the Paleo challenge from Aug 7 and this is my husband's first time doing the challenge and he is also a potato and bread person, I thought I should do this so he still have his bread. I have a question. Must you have aluminium free baking powder? You can't use the regular one? Is that not paleo?

    1. You can use regular baking powder but the aluminium is poison for our bodies. Its best just to find one made with out it (:
