1 cup coconut flour
2 TBSP baking powder (gluten free version if you can)
4 TBSP psyllium husk powder (try to get the version that is a little flakey and less ground)
½ tsp salt or Herbamare
Other dry seasonings of your choice- see below for variations
6 large eggs
6 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 cup boiling water (more or less depending on the consistency)
- Preheat the over to 375 degrees F
- Place all of the dry ingredients into a medium bowl and stir to combine
- In a separate larger bowl whip the eggs and olive oil well
- Combine the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well with a fork
- Mix in the apple cider vinegar and stir to combine
- Now, add the hot water a little bit at a time until it is moist but not too wet, it should be fluffy and light but not soupy, kind of like moist play-dough.
- These can be formed into “buns” on a parchment lined baking sheet, placed in muffin cups, silicone shapes, or cooked as a full bread loaf.
- Place in the hot oven and REDUCE heat to 350 degrees.
- If making this in muffin cups cook for 26 to 30 minutes.
- For a whole bread loaf cook for 35 to 40 minutes, or until firmer on the inside and golden brown on the outside.
Certainly, there are a ton of possible variations to this recipe you can add flavourings that are dry to the dry mix or, alternatively you can just add them at the end, here are a couple of variation ideas for you to try:
- 1 tsp of chilli powder and some red pepper flakes for a kick
- 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, 1 tsp dehydrated chives
- 1/2 tsp onion powder, ½ tsp of garlic powder, ½ tsp dehydrated chives and topped with sesame seeds
- 1 tsp crushed rosemary and ½ cup chopped olives
In addition to the above mentioned variations, you can also experiment yourself and if you do please leave a comment here. I have always wanted to SWEETEN these buns by adding swerve and cinnamon to the recipe. I haven’t done this so you might have to experiment to find the right measurement – my guess would be 3 TBSP swerve and 1 tsp cinnamon. If I did make these sweet I would likely substitute the olive oil for butter or coconut oil to improve the flavour.
