Hamburgers are one of my weak points. And because I can’t eat flour I decided to experiment and finally have a burger. Here is my recipe for gluten-free buns that you can easily adjust to your own needs. Check your kitchen drawers and see what nuts you have in there and experiment using those for flours. The taste will be equally enjoyable.

Hamburger Buns

  • Author: Nina Jesih
  • Yield: 4 1x


One regular hamburger bun has around 244kCal, the one with nuts has around 300kCal. But don’t worry, they are much healthier and filling, so you can eat just one, instead of two regular ones.


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp apple vinegar
  • 4 spoons melted butter (you can use ghee)
  • ½ cup almond milk (regular one will do, too)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  1. Blend egg yolks and add them almond and coconut flour with some vinegar, milk and butter. Mixed it all together and add flax seeds and salt.
  2. Whisk egg whites in a different dish and add baking soda. Join it with the other mixture (use a wooden spoon, not a blender).
  3. Leave the batch in a dish for 5 minutes. Soak your hands and make 4 round buns.
  4. Put them on a wax paper and bake for 35 minutes on 320°. Baking time depends of how wet your mixture is. Use a toothpick to check if the buns are done. Just don’t open the oven too much, because there is a chance bread will not rise.
  5. When you take the bread out of the oven, leave them to cool down. Now you have time to cook a burger patty and prepare every spread that you want in your hamburger. You can of course use the buns for something else, just eat it in a few days, so they won’t get old.
