Almond Flour Rolls

A few weeks ago I found this company that makes "Paleo" bread. I looked up the ingredients and it seemed pretty simple... so I tried to figure it out on my own. It worked out wonderfully!

Here are the results!

Recipe -

1 1/4 cup almond flour
5 tbsp psyllium husk powder (flax won't work)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
2 whole eggs
1 cup warm water

1. Pre-heat oven to 300 and line sheet with parchment.

2. Mix dry ingredients together until well combined.

3. Add eggs to form thick mix.

4. Add water and mix until thick again. This step may take a few minutes, but it will thicken!

5. Quickly form into small, flat discs and bake! Don't be tempted to make them too big... they rise a lot!

6. Bake for 90 minutes.

The raw mix texture is very similar to cornbread, but shockingly it rises into these beautiful bread rolls!

I think these would be great for sandwiches/burgers! I have a batch of bacon that I am going to use for BLTs tonight... we'll see how it goes! I will post pictures of the results! :-)


  1. These look beautiful.

    I wonder if you can tell me where you learned that psyllium husk powder is GAPS-legal. I know it is illegal on SCD, and I haven't seen anything to the contrary in the GAPS book or FAQs!

  2. Hey Nikki! They are gorgeous aren't they? I actually took a chance on the psyllium husk. It's pure fiber, which is a no no when you're first starting out on GAPS. BUT, since most of these recipes are not something that you would have one the intro diet I thought I might as well include it.

    I tried it with no ill effect and many others have as well while still doing GAPS.

    I think it's a judgement call though. I haven't seen that it is forbidden on GAPS, but I haven't seen that it is specifically allowed either!

    So there you go... I suppose that's fairly vague, but that's all I have at the moment. It is the one and only thing on this blog that it's specifically GAPS, so well spotted! :-) Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any other questions!
