Almond buns for burgers and sandwiches - Paleo buns

Almond buns - Max M Rasmussen
Video recipe - When browsing paleo sites I have often seen recipes for almond buns and oopsies. I found that the almond buns looked interesting. So I have been experimenting with those a lot. This is the recipe I have developed. They are a lot easier to make than regular buns and they taste better too. So I make them often now.

Ingredients

yields 6

  • 6 eggs (M/L)
  • 100 g (3½ oz) butter (or any other type of fat)
  • 150 g (6 oz) almond flour - (3 dl (1½ cup))
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Directions

Melt the fat at as low a temperature as possible. It has to be mixed in with the eggs, and there is no reason to scramble them by adding burning grease.

Put the eggs into a bowl and mix them loosely together.

Add the fat. Mix it in.

Put the almond flour on top.

Spread the baking powder as evenly as possible over the almond flour.

Mix it all into a batter that is mostly free of lumps.

Pour it into the molds. About 1 dl (½ cup) in each.

Bake at 175°C (350°F) convection for 15-20 minutes. In my molds and oven I have to bake them for 20 minutes.

Let them cool. Split them in half when serving.

Store in the refrigerator. They can be toasted.

They are soft to chew. Making them suitable for burgers. The crumb looks like this. - Max M Rasmussen

Notes

You must use molds for this recipe. Mine are 120 mm (5 inches) in diameter. you can find them in online stores. Without the the molds they will flatten completely.

My molds are called "Disco Per Biscuit - Pavoni Formaflex Molds" - Pavoni being the brand.

I found a set here:
http://www.rakuten.com/prod/silicone-bakeware-sponge-base-4-7-oz-4-05-diam-x-0-79-high-3-cavities/225748396.html

You can use butter, chicken fat, lard (pig fat), coconut oil or other types of oil as the fat. Even rendered bacon fat is fin. But the bacon flavor can become overwhelming if you use just that.

If you make your own almond flour, you don't need to deskin the almonds. The buns taste the same. And it is A LOT easier not to do it.

If you want to go completely paleo and avoid the baking powder, you can just whip the egg whites stiff and fold them in at the end. Just before baking.

These buns are also good as "gluten free french bread slices"

Thank you for this recipe! I put mine in regular muffin tins with chopped ham and shredded cheddar cheese and they were delicious. So much so that I next tried adding blueberries, almond and vanilla extract, tblsp. of maple syrup, applesauce and cinnamon. Also excellent! A real keeper.

Good!

I did make these, we loved them. Mine came out grainy, like cornbread. We put them under chili and were thrilled. I used english muffin rings. Now I am going to try to figure out how to use them to make tamales. All of the low carb tamale recipes use baby corn, and come out about 8g carb each. Too much for me. Thanks for a great recipe

Hi, Is there any fibre that can be deducted from the 6.4g carbs? - or has this already been deducted? Thanks!

- so I just posted above and by my calculations each bun should be under 3g carb net for those ketogenic dieters out there.

Queries

Can i use oatmeal instead? And add almond extract for the almond flavour?

Queries

If you use oatmeal, then they are not Paleo. Make more sense to just make a regular wheat bun, if you do not want a Paleo bun.

No. Oatmel will suck up a lot more of the moisture. it will not work with this recipe. - max

pretty good

I made these and they have a very nice texture, but I would call them egg buns-- egg is by far the dominant flavor. Mine are very yellow from the yolks as well. Thanks for the recipe.

Almond Buns

You have me very curious about these buns. They sound great! I'm having trouble finding the the bun molds, the largest I've seen is 3 1/2" Diameter. Do you have a recommended source?

Almond Buns

And they ARE worth being curious about ;-) I have spend an hour trying to find a non danish dealer. no such luck. Plenty of places sell "Pavoni Formaflex Molds" - you could probably ask one of them to get you these. but any 4-5 inch round baking mold will do. There are several non-stick aluminum pans available.

My new fav bread

What I like the most about these buns is that they held together extremely well! I made these using a muffin top pan, not a silicon mold and they came out perfect. I measured out 6oz almond meal using my food scale and added onion powder because I was afraid these would be too eggy but they tasted great. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and they tasted like storenbought wheat buns, so good. Using leftovers for a breakfast sandwich.

Some tweaks - 1/2 recipe and less eggy flavor

Got to this recipe from r/keto. This is such a great recipe - so simple and quick I can make them while the grill is heating up for my burgers. Way easier than any other keto bun or bread recipe I've found. I have a couple of tweaks. I only bought one mold so I make a 1/2 recipe. I melt 1 tsp butter in the bowl first - no need to dirty another dish - then add 3 eggs, whisk, then add 3/4 cup almond flour and 1 tsp baking powder then mix again. So folks say they have too much egg flavor. That's easily solved. I've made this recipe with 1 whole egg plus three egg whites. It comes out perfectly. BTW, never waste egg yolks. I fry them gently and top my burgers with them - yum!

From the recipe - 150 g (6 oz) almond flour - (3 dl (1½ cup)), 1 1/2 cups =12 oz. It would be nice to know if its 6 or 12 ounces.

almond buns

I assume that the 1.5 cup = 12 oz is a conversion you have found somewhere online, as it is not in my recipe. A US cup is 2.5 dl. So 1.5 cup is 3.5 dl. And 3 dl weigh 150 g. I have both meassured and weighed before writing the recipe. I rounded up to 1.5 cup which weigh 175 g or 6.1 oz. - max

Just an FYI: the mix-up is probably because in US/UK measurement systems, the ounce (oz) can be either for volume (fluid ounces) or weight. It's trickier than using the metric system because almost all recipes never state which ounce they mean, relying on everybody just "knowing" which is meant. Happy New Year! (Love your site, recipes, and especially your videos!)
