This recipe works really well for burger buns and our kids enjoy them made with cinnamon and dates and served with a bit of whipped cream and some berries. Pictured as a bread alternative for a roast lamb sandwich - Delicious!!


Ingredients:

4 eggs

1/3 cup natural yoghurt 

Pinch of salt

3 tbs psyllium seed husks or Coconut 180Superfood

1 tsp baking powder

 

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 150c
  2. Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
  3. Whisk together egg yolks, yoghurt, psyllium seed husk and baking powder, leave to sit for 5mins while you beat the egg whites.
  4. Beat the egg whites together with the salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  6. Place 6 large (10cm diameter) or 8 smaller (8cm diameter) amounts of mixture on a lined baking tray. They do spread a bit so just put bigger or smaller blobs of mixture on the tray. You can spread it a bit if you want panini size/shape etc.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven at 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.

Variations:

  • You can eat these as bread or use them as a bun for a hotdog or hamburger. You can also put different kinds of seeds on them before baking them, for instance poppy, sesame or sunflower seeds. 
  • One big bun can be used for a swiss roll: Add a generous layer of whipped cream and some berries. Make sure you roll when still warm or it will split.
  • Add 1t cinnamon, ½ t mixed spice and ¼ cup finely chopped dates or raisins to the mixture, once cooked top with cream and berries.
