Homemade Bread Rolls


There is nothing like a crunchy bread roll to go with your winter soup or a decent homemade burger! Here is my simple bread roll recipe that can also been slightly altered to make burgers buns. 

They are gluten, nut and dairy free.

If you follow me on FACEBOOK you will know by now that I like to keep recipes as simple as possible. Like most of you, I am a busy Mum and I simply don't always have time to make EVERYTHING that my family consumes from scratch. You may also notice that whilst most of my recipes are "Paleo" - I don't like labels because I'm not 100% hardcore about sticking to rules. That makes life way to hard. And as such, this recipe is probably one of those times because it contains a good amount of tapioca starch in it, so therefore isn't ideal for those with blood sugar issues or trying to lose weight. When you need a decent tasting bread roll that taste good and meets most of my families needs - this recipe is excellent.

Ingredients:
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons tapioca starch/flour
7 tablespoons coconut flour
3 tablespoons psyllium husks
3/4 teaspoon salt, and more for on top if you wish
2 eggs
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 175c.
2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
3. Add in the eggs, water and oil.
4. Mix well and allow to sit for a few minutes.
5. Line a tray with baking paper and then rolls 9 small balls out of the dough.
6. Bake for 35 minutes until golden brown.
Homemade Burger Buns - makes 4 large buns

Ingredients:
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons tapioca starch/flour
6 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons psyllium husks
3/4 teaspoon salt, and more for on top if you wish
2 eggs
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 175c.
2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
3. Add in the eggs, water and oil.
4. Mix well and allow to sit for a few minutes.
5. Line a tray with baking paper and then spoon them onto the tray in 4 bun shaped blobs. They will hold their form but won't roll into a dough like the bread rolls above.
6. Bake for 35 minutes until lightly brown and allow to cool before serving.

Cut in half and fill with your favourite burger filling. 
Each bun has approximately 33g carb, 32g fat and 5g protein.

Yummo burgers for dinner - a big family hit!
