Paleo (grain-free)

Cauliflower Everything Buns

 

 

These Silver and Gold Paleo (or 'grain free') buns are made with cauliflower and a whole lot of delicious seeds, to satisfy your bread cravings yet fill you up with a lot of goodness!

Try these as a replacement to the 'everything bagel' recipe, but without the high-carb content. You may replace (or omit) any of the toppings suggested. 

Makes approximately 12 buns.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded cauliflower (pulse in the processor)

  • 2 Tbsp. almond flour

  • 2 Tbsp. coconut flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt

 

TOPPING:

  • 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds

  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds

  • 1 Tbsp. dried minced onion

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

Method

Preheat oven to 400°F, and line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a food processor, pulse cauliflower until rice-consistency (about 30 seconds), then squeeze out the excess liquid – this is very important, otherwise they will turn out 'mushy'. 

 

In a bowl, combine all ingredients minus the topping ingredients and mix well with a fork. In a separate bowl, combine topping ingredients and mix well. 

Using your hands, make 12-14 balls from the cauliflower mixture and place on baking sheet, flattening with your hands ‘til about 1/2” thickness. Sprinkle with topping and press lightly into the top. 

Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and place immediately onto cooling rack.

NOTE: if you prefer crunchier or dryer buns, you may turn the oven temperature down to 350°F and bake for approximately 50-60 minutes. Do not allow to burn at the bottom!
