Learn how to Make Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns
These buns start like all good FLUFFY bread recipe: with yeast! Not solely does it permit the dough to rise and forestall the buns from being dense and heavy, but it surely presents a traditional hamburger bun taste, too.
After activating the yeast in a mix of warmed dairy-free milk + cane sugar, we add in a magical fiber-filled ingredient that offers these hamburger buns somewhat gluten-like texture: psyllium husk! It provides elasticity and suppleness to the dough (a.okay.a. no crumbly buns right here).
As soon as the psyllium has created a gel-like texture, it’s time so as to add the dry components (brown rice flour, almond flour, potato starch, and sea salt) plus melted butter and apple cider vinegar.
The result’s a sticky dough able to form into buns, let rise in a heat spot, and prime with sesame seeds for a traditional bun look! Bake till calmly golden then let cool earlier than slicing for greatest texture.

Servings 8 (Buns)
Forestall your display screen from going darkish
- 1 ½ cups dairy-free milk (heated to 110 levels F // plain, unsweetened // we used almond)
- 3 Tbsp cane sugar (guarantee natural if vegan)
- 2 ¼ tsp energetic dry yeast (1 packet yields ~2 ¼ tsp or 7 g)
- 1 Tbsp psyllium husk powder* (not entire // we like Anthony’s Items)
- 1 ½ cups brown rice flour
- 2/3 cup almond flour* (we like Wellbee’s)
- 1/2 cup potato starch (NOT potato flour)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 6 Tbsp melted vegan butter (we like Miyoko’s // dairy butter would work too if not vegan/dairy-free)
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Sesame seeds (for topping // non-compulsory)
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put aside.
In a liquid measuring cup or small mixing bowl, whisk collectively heat dairy-free milk (it needs to be about 110 levels F / 43 levels C), cane sugar, and energetic dry yeast. Let bloom for 10-20 minutes till the combination appears to be like frothy. If the yeast hasn’t bloomed at this level, the water may need been too sizzling or your yeast too previous. In case your water was the right temperature and your yeast was new, it’s possible you’ll want to position the bowl into a hotter spot in your kitchen.
Subsequent, whisk within the psyllium husk powder and let it gel for one more 10 minutes.
In the meantime, to a medium mixing bowl, add the brown rice flour, almond flour, potato starch, and sea salt. Whisk to totally mix.
As soon as the yeast combination has thickened, add it to the dry components with the melted vegan butter and apple cider vinegar. Stir till the dough is blended effectively — this could take about 3 minutes. You can even use your palms to verify there are not any flour pockets remaining. The dough will probably be very sticky — that’s regular!
Flip the dough out onto a dry floor and divide it into 8 equal items. Use moist palms (to forestall sticking) to form every bit right into a ball and place each onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Attempt to keep away from including any flour. As soon as the buns are formed, sprinkle them with non-compulsory sesame seeds and canopy with a clear kitchen towel. Let rise in a heat place for half-hour or till about doubled in measurement. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 350 levels F (176 C).
Bake for 25-28 minutes till very calmly golden. Take away from the oven and let cool for five minutes earlier than transferring to a wire rack to chill utterly. These buns might be loved barely heat, however for greatest outcomes, wait till they’re cool to the contact. Slice the buns in half and serve together with your favourite burger!
Finest when loved the day of baking, however you may retailer leftovers in an hermetic container within the fridge for as much as 2 days or freeze sliced buns for 1 month.
To reheat frozen buns, we propose briefly working the still-frozen buns beneath water then toasting them till heat and fluffy.
*We advocate psyllium husk powder slightly than entire husk as a result of it soaks up the moisture higher, creating a greater texture. Some manufacturers of psyllium husk powder have a purple tint to them. If that’s the case, your buns will probably be grey/purple in coloration however nonetheless okay to eat. We favor Anthony’s Items model, which is white in coloration with a really slight pink tint.
*Almond flour sub: Cashew flour would possibly work on this recipe, however we haven’t tried it.
*Diet data is a tough estimate calculated with out non-compulsory components.
