Almond buns for burgers and sandwiches - Paleo buns

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.

Almond buns for burgers and sandwiches - Paleo buns

Almond buns

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.

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"

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?

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.

I have known that are some persons are allergic to almond in any type of presentation; what would you recommend as an option, to change the flour ingredient? could it be use a wheat flour?

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.

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.

Can you please post the nutritional stats

Where do you get that from? The recipe says 6 oz.

Posted by Anonymous User at Dec 27, 2014 09:43 PM
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.

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.

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!)

Absolutely delicious. Made these for the first time tonight and this one of the best tasting Paleo bread/bun recipes I have tried so far. Thanks so much!!!

Molds for these buns

Get these molds on AMAZON. 1/2 the price of the name brand used in the video but exact same product.

DELISH!

My molds came in today from Amazon and I made these buns. They came out perfect. I'm thrilled to have this recipe and I was thrilled to eat a great big ham and cheese sandwich.

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

Queries

Posted by Anonymous User at Aug 26, 2015 09:11 PM
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

Some tweaks - 1/2 recipe and less eggy flavor

Posted by Anonymous User at Jan 31, 2016 02:16 AM
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!

How can 1/2 of 3 and 1/2 oz of butter = 1 teaspoon?

Good!

Posted by Anonymous User at Apr 29, 2016 06:16 PM
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

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.
