These Paleo Bread Rolls are the perfect alternative to normal bread buns but they are actually packed full of nutrients! They are crusty on the outside, with the nicest soft, 'bread' texture on the inside. Straight from the oven and smothered in butter....ah so amazing!! 😋
You'll find that one of these bread buns will keep you feeling satisfied and full a lot longer compared to a normal grain based bread bun. That is because they are high in healthy fats and protein compared to a normal bun that is just carbohydrate. Healthy fats and protein help to stabilise blood sugar levels, reduce hunger hormones and sweet cravings. Add one of these bread buns to your lunch and get rid of that 4pm energy slump 😁
- The recipe makes 4 medium sized buns and can be doubled if you wanted to make more.
- If your mixture seems too dry, add a Tbsp of boiling water and more if needed.
- You may be wondering why my buns have a tinge of green to them, this is because I make my own ground almonds by blending whole almonds. This lot that I used in the video was a mixture of almonds and sunflower seeds (I forgot I used sunflower seeds!). Sunflower seeds turn green when baked because of the chlorophyll (acidic) which reacts with the baking soda and heat and turns green 😁
Paleo Bread Buns
- 1 cup ground almonds
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour

- In a medium sized bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients using a whisk to remove any lumps.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine.
- Place a large spoonful of the bread dough onto a lined baking tray. Shape into a round bun and try not to flatten them too much.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds as an option (or grated cheese yum!).
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and they bounce back when pressed.
