Today I had a go at making a recipe from Hemsley and Hemsley’s new book Good and Simple. The flaxseed buns really intrigued me , an unusual list of ingredients but all things I can eat. Not being able to tolerate regular gluten free buns and trying to avoid grains these looked perfect for me.
I mixed the dry ingredients together then added the beaten eggs etc. Before my eyes I could see the mixture change after 5mins it had thickened up and was ready to mould into buns.
I baked them for 20mins in a fan oven and they came out looking very like little bread rolls. I have to admit I had my doubts about these. But I was very pleasantly surprised . After cooling I cut one in half and filled it with salad and grated cheese.
If I had a blind fold on, I don’t think I would have known that this was made from flaxseeds! Good bread like texture and not crumbly something that is often hard to find with gluten free bread.
I will freeze the majority of these ready sliced and they will be perfect for a quick lunch.
definitely worth giving them ago especially if like me you are intolerant to gluten and yeast and avoid grains.
Flaxseeds are not a cheap ingredient ,but if you are grain free then I feel its worth spending the money .
