Low Carb Almond Meal Hotdog Buns ~ Gluten Free

I used a Digital scale for accurate measurements

In the scale measure:
208 Grams Natural Almond Meal (I used Bob's Red Mill)

Pour the Almond Meal into a Medium bowl and add:
5 TBL. Psyllium Husk (Used the Powdered Husk and check the label for Gluten Free)
2 TBL. Ground Flaxseed Meal
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
Mix with a Wooden Spoon

In the Scale measure:
300 Grams Greek Yogurt

Add the Yogurt to the dry ingredients along with:
4 TBL. Vegetable Oil (I have used Coconut oil as well)
4 Eggs slightly beaten with a fork

Mix with a Spatula making sure all the ingredients are combined.
Rest for 5 minutes.
This gives the Psyllium Husk time to absorb some of the Liquid.

Use your Rubber Spatula to sstir/fold down the dough.

To make the Hotdog buns take Mini aluminum disposable Pie/Tart Tins and shape them into
the shape of a hotdog. In my video I show how to make them. Spray each tin with Cookie Spray. Place a cookie sheet lined with Silpat Liners. I use the liners so the bottoms of the rolls do not get to dark.

Fill each Tin with the batter. I used a Cookie Scoop size 40 and place 4 scoops in each tin.
Use a small rubber spatula to spread out the batter.

Makes 7 Rolls

Bake in a preheated 350*
For 20-25 Minutes or until golden brown and done.

Remove for the tins and cool on a wire rack.

I sliced the buns on one side and put in a Hotdog and fillings of choice.
These buns are also great filled with Chicken or Tuna Salad.

They freeze wonderfully. Let them completely cool then wrap individually in plastic wrap then place in a ziplock bag.

The Tins can be re-used. I soak them in soapy water, rinse and air dry and stack them together.

  1. These were great! Thank you so much for this recipe! :D

  2. No carb count posted?

  3. Thank you for this recipe! I made hamburger buns and they were terrific. Even on the third day,they were soft and pliable...a miracle in the gluten free world. I did not use flax because i didn't have any. Didn't seem to matter. I did add a tablespoon of sugar to help with browning. I'm buying hot dog pans for this dough!

    1. Im happy to hear you liked the recipe. Nice idea about the sugar for browning!! I too have been eyeballing the hotdog pans!! :)
