Paleo Dough for Bread, Buns, and Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by heatherhopecs

Adapted from a recipe on Maria's Health blog... I have seen photos of this bread and it actually looks like... bread! Dying to try it for my hamburgers. Others cooks report this recipe makes great hamburger/hot dog buns and ciabatta-style sandwich rolls.

One of the easiest bread recipes ever! Tasty with texture of multi-grain. Will make again. Really wonder about the calories: 11 ??? Happy to be able to have a sandwich again.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups blanched almond flour (or 1/2 cup coconut flour)
  • 5 tablespoons psyllium, husk powder (no substitutes)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 12 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 egg whites (8 egg whites if using coconut flour)
  • 1 cup boiling water (or very hot tomato-basil soup for Italian bread)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, psyllium powder (no substitutes: flaxseed meal won't work), baking powder and salt. Mix until dry ingredients are well combined.
  3. Add in the eggs and mix until a thick dough.
  4. Add boiling water or soup into the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up.
  5. Form into 4 to 5 mini hoagie rolls or buns (the dough will rise about 2 to 3 times) or one large sub/loaf and place onto a greased baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 65 minutes (50 minutes for smaller shapes like buns). Remove from the oven and allow the bread cool completely.
  7. Cut open with a serrated knife. Fill with desired fillings.
