Paleo bread, buns (oven adaptation)

My sister Sherry has been eating paleo for a few months now. She started it as a challenge to eat better. She has been a great source for recipe trials for me. She made this recipe for bread. It is from primal bread 2.0. The one thing I don't like about the recipe is the fact it is cooked in a microwave. So I adapted this bread to bake in the oven.
I could have easily used my 5 inch ramekins instead I used my stand alone, paper quiche cups. I bought these at Marshall's Home Goods Store. They are approximately 4.5 to 5 inches.
I doubled the recipe and reduced the baking powder by one teaspoon. My adaptation of this recipe made 5 "buns". Which made 10 pieces of bread when you slice each bun in half width wise. 15 slices if you make thinner slices. Your choice. There are lots of ways you can use this bread. Beware! It is very filling so a small piece is super satisfying and delicious!

Paleo Bread (buns)

  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup flax meal (I used golden flax)
  • 1/4 cup salted toasted sunflower seeds 
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 Tbs maple syrup or coconut nectar(optional)
  • 3 Tbs walnut or coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease or butter ramekins or paper quiche cup
  3. Measure sunflower seeds into a Ziploc baggie and smack it with a rolling pin to break up the seeds slightly. Don't pulverize the seeds.
  4. Measure all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and whisk together.
  5. Whisk together the eggs, sweetener and oil in a small mixing bowl. 
  6. Now dump the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to incorporate everything.
  7. Divide the batter between the 5 quiche cups or ramekins.
  8. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.

This bread has the taste and texture of a multi-grain bread but without the grains!! It's simple and quick to make and keep on hand for toast or sandwich bread.
Important thing to remember...Cool completely before you slice it. It will hold together better, No worries though if you slice and butter it while it's still hot. You'll be polishing off all the crumbs that fall. This also toasts great!!
