Baobab Bread Buns
It's not easy to find gluten-free bread in the shops that doesn't contain a ton of mysterious ingredients, and besides, making your own is fun too! These baobab buns are simple to make, vegan, gluten-free and grain-free! Stuffed with your favourite fillings they make the perfect on-the-go meal.
Makes 4 small rolls
1 heaped tsp Aduna Baobab Powder
71g coconut flour
36g psyllium husk powder (no substitutes)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tbsp (28ml) apple cider vinegar
3 chia eggs (3 tbsp ground chia seeds + 9 tbsp lukewarm water)
1 cup boiling water
Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
In a large bowl, add the coconut flour, psyllium powder, baking powder and salt and mix well. Add the chia eggs and vinegar and mix until well combined. It's easier to use your hands to bring the dough together.
Add the boiling water to the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up. Divide the dough into 4 or 5 equal parts and roll them into balls. Place them on a lined baking tray, 1 inch apart, as they will slightly expand during baking, and flatten slightly.
Bake for 50 minutes, or until firm to the touch then remove from the oven and place on a tray to cool.
Cut in half horizontally and stuff with your favourite fillings. Mine are avocado, beetroot, grilled tempeh and zoodles. Sweet fillings like nut butter and bananas are also good!
