Here is an awesome recipe for some Paleo buns. Paleo is a way of eating that reflects what our ancestors ate. This means it’s a wheat free and dairy free diet. These two food groups are common food allergens amongst today’s population; therefore these foods could be causing you digestive discomfort.

INGREDIENTS:

  • ¾ cup cassava flour
  • 3 Tbsp. psyllium husk powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • TOPPINGS: egg wash (one egg whipped) and black sesame seeds

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor combine all the ingredients for the hamburger buns. Puree until the dough is smooth.
  3. Divide the dough into four equal parts and shape into a round ball (if the dough is sticking, coat your hands in water and then shape the dough). Pat the round buns down into a dome shape. Brush the buns with egg wash and then sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Bake on 400F for about 22-25 minutes until golden brown.
