Sugar! Most of us know we need to avoid sugar to regain optimal health, but did you know starches like bread and potatoes can have the same effect on your body as sugar? I know, bread is a difficult one to stay away from and the gluten free alternatives taste like rubbish! I've tried quite a few recipes now and this is one I am pleased to say tastes good without being too eggy. Placed in rounds on a baking tray they make a pretty good burger buns too.
Grain Free Bread Rolls
1 cup Ground almonds (almond flour)
3 Tbsp coconut flour
5 Tbsp psyllium husks
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt or himalayan salt
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup boiling water
3 egg whites
Preheat your oven to 170C and prepare grease a baking sheet. Mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl using a whisk. Make a well in the centre and add the egg whites and the apple cider vinegar.
Gently but quickly to avoid splashing yourself whisk in the hot water. This needs to be done quickly so the egg whites don't cook. Alternatively you could use a hand mixer and gently pour in the hot water while mixing. Mix long enough for the mixture to come together into a moist dough.
Wet hands and divide the dough into six pieces and form into balls and space out evenly on your baking tray. I have baked the same mixture in greased mini loaf tins.
Optional - sprinkle with sesame seeds and press lightly onto the dough Bake for 50-60 minutes. They are done when the rolls sound hollow when tapped on the base.
I like to use the left over egg yolks to make mayo or hollandaise sauce, Yum!
