Grain free bread rolls (nut free)

Lately I have been trying to make a gluten free, grain free bread alternative that my husband will eat for work lunches that will hold together and isn’t primarily made from almond flour because that gets expensive. After a few failed attempts I was so happy when this one worked (happy dance) and even more so when it got the big thumbs up from my husband.
bread rolls
  • 50 g psyllium husks
  • 80 g coconut flour
  • 25 g chia seeds
  • 25 g Linseeds
  • 50 g pepitas or sunflower seeds (or a mix of both)
  • 10 g Coconut sugar (optional)
  • 2 – 3 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 400 g water
  • Extra seeds for rolling dough in

Thermomix Instructions

Preheat oven to 200’C and line a baking tray with baking paper or a silicon mat.

Weigh psyllium husks into mixing bowl and mill1 min, speed 9.

Add the other dry ingredients, coconut flour, seeds (except the ‘extra seeds’), coconut sugar, baking powder and salt, into mixing bowl and mix 10 secs, speed 5.

Add the eggs, coconut oil and water (weigh into bowl). Mix together for 10 secs, speed 6.

Choose the kneading function and knead dough for 2 mins.

Tip dough out onto bench that has been dusted with coconut flour or a thermomat and roll the dough into a roll.

Sprinkle dough with the reserved extra seeds and using spatula divide mixture into 8 equal portions.

Shape the portions into rolls and place on prepared baking paper and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden.

Allow to cool before cutting and serving.

  2. So I made these today and they tasted good but are a little on the heavy side the only thing I did not use was the sugar and that should not have been an issue with the weight of the bun

    • Hi Tammy. Thanks for your comment :-). They are heavier than a normal bread roll but I think a nice alternative to paleo bread that is quite dense anyway and often contains a lot of nut flour or eggs. Depending on how well ground the seeds and psyllium husks are could determine how dense the bread is. You could try adding the seeds with the psyllium husks and milling them. I found them a lot lighter then other paleo bread I’ve tried but I can try milling the seeds and see if that makes them even lighter.
