Gluten Free Seed buns

Yes these originally are a mistake…. trying to make buns and then having them flat. Gluten free baking is difficult. But still delicious! It worked well in the end because they are absolutely perfect for toast or sandwiches since there is not much bread yet very wholesome and tasty. I had them for lunch today cut in half with tinned sardines and cumin on one piece, and salmon, avocado and tomato on the other.


Gluten Free Buns/ flat sandwich bread

Makes 10-12

  • 4 tbsp psyllium seeds husks
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey
  • a pinch of salt
  • 25 g active yeast
  • 3 3/4 cups (9 dl) lukewarm water
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups  brown rice flour
  • 1 1/2 cup Buckwheat Flour (you can really use any gluten free flour you want for this recipe! Same goes for the brown rice flour
  • 1 cup of coarsely chopped seeds and nuts (I used pumpkin seed, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts)
  • 35 g dried coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp ground spice cardamom
  • blue poppy seeds, to sprinkle

Combine psyllium, salt and yeast in bowl, add honey to the lukewarm water, stir to dissolve and then add to the bowl with yeast. Mix an bit then leave until you get a gel like consistency and the yeast is all frothy. Measure all flours, seeds, coconut and cardamon and mix well. Add the yeast mix to the flours and stir around with a spoon for a couple of minutes, add more flour if needed. Get palm sized clumps and roll them with flour on your hands into rough balls then place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle with the poppy seeds. Let them rise for 30 minutes and bake them for 1 hour at 350°F/175°C. When done, eat fresh from the oven with butter and honey… or save for later.

I made a sandwich out of this bread to take with me to the folk festival in Wellington last weekend. Not only was the sandwich great, but also the whole day there that I spent with my friend Kate. There were many amazing hidden gems among the performers at the folk festival! It was sunny and in a beautiful camping ground surrounded by nature. Kate and I are most definitely going next year.


The band playing is called John the baptist, thats me playing the mandolin with the daisy crown, and Kate down the bottom right, looking beautiful (as always).
