Vanelja’s Favorite Buns
(Vegan, gluten-free, yeast-free)
Makes about 9 rolls
2 tablespoons chia seeds + 0,5 cup of water
2 cups almond flour
0,5 cup buckwheat flour
0,5 cup potato starch
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp psyllium husk
1,5 cup oat milk (or other dairy-free milk or water)
1/2 tsp maple syrup or liquid raw organic honey honey
0,5 cup melted vegan butter or coconut oil (or 50:50)
1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 200 Celcius degrees. Mix chia seeds and water in a small bowl and let it sit for about 15 minutes until you get a gel-like mixture. Mix almond flour, buckwheat, potato starch, baking powder and psyllium husk in a bowl. Add oat milk, melted butter and/or oil, chia gel, liquid honey and salt. Allow the dough to swell for a couple of minutes. The dough should be soft, plump, like yeast dough, not dry. If necessary, add some flour or liquid.
Take pieces of dough and roll them into balls and put them on a baking tray covered with a baking sheet. Bake the buns for about 25 minutes until slightly golden. Take out from the oven, serve and enjoy!
