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.
- 1 1⁄4 cups blanched almond flour (or 1/2 cup coconut flour)
- 5 tablespoons psyllium, husk powder (no substitutes)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 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)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- 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.
- Add in the eggs and mix until a thick dough.
- Add boiling water or soup into the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up.
- 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.
- Bake for 65 minutes (50 minutes for smaller shapes like buns). Remove from the oven and allow the bread cool completely.
- Cut open with a serrated knife. Fill with desired fillings.
