Easy Gluten-Free, Paleo Friendly Hamburger Buns

Finding a good substitute for regular hamburger buns is quite hard if you ask me. At least if you don’t want the recipe to be too complex and time consuming. I made this recipe which only includes six ingredients and comes together real quick. They re soft, juicy, sugar free and oil free. I used apple sauce both to give it some sweetness and to substitute oil/fats to make it healthier.

Ingredients for the Gluten-Free, Paleo Friendly Hamburger Buns:

  • Cassava flour
  • Eggs
  • Apple sauce
  • Baking powder
