It is very rare that I eat bread at all. I’m totally gluten-free, but I’m also naturally gluten-free. What do I mean by that?? Well I do not buy gluten-free products. I eat the Paleo diet and there are no flour or grains in that lifestyle. Gluten-free products are usually prepared with corn or rice flour. Corn is one of our most genetically modified products so therefor no corn products. Rice and corn flour also means a lot of carbohydrates and starch, which is then converted in the liver to Glucose and then transformed into sugar so it’s no good. The paleo diet use instead nut flour or coconut flour when baking. There are times when I appreciate having bread with me, for example, when I play golf. Then you walk for 4 hours so it is important to keep the focus on top. Or when you are traveling, it is a must for survival to have something with you from home. Flights tend to be hopelessly, the only thing that is gluten-free seems to be potato chips.
I love to cook and be creative in the kitchen, but when it comes to baking of different kinds I don´t feel so secure. There are others who are good at it and the other day I saw on Instagram such beautiful bread buns made with almond flour. It was on the blog www.undervarttak.se I found the recipe. They were very easy to do, I followed the recipe exactly and they became super good! They stayed fresh for the next day also in a glass jar with a lid.
This is also a great recipe to make when you get egg white over. I usually save the egg white when I make mayonnaise. A little tip, store them in a jar and a piece of tape where you fill in how many egg whites the jar contains. You can store them in the fridge for at least 10 days and it is fine to freeze egg whites.
Ingredients for 6 buns.
- 300 ml ( 1 1/4 Cup) Almond flour
- 5 Tbsp. Psyllium Husk powder
- 2 tsp. Baking powder
- 1 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
- 3 Egg whites
- 250ml Boiling water
- 1 tsp. anis seed (or other bread spice).
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Mix the almond flour, baking powder, Psyllium husk powder, and salt in a bowl. Separate three eggs and pour the egg whites in the bowl. Whisk together using an handmixer. Pour in the boiling water and mix together with the handmixer into a dough. Divide the dough into 6 portions and shape buns. Put them on a plate with baking paper. Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes. Remove and let cool completely before cutting them.
