Liz's Gluten Free Microwave "Buns"

I got this recipe from the gluten free forum on celiac.com; Liz (aka lonewolf) posted it. I know it sounds weird, but trust me, these rolls are FANTASTIC!


1 large egg
2 Tbs. brown rice flour or sorghum flour
1 Tbs. almond meal
1 Tbs. golden flax meal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. sugar (or one packet Splenda)
1/2 tsp. cocoa powder
shake of salt


Spray a custard dish (or any baking dish that will yield a hamburger bun sized "loaf") with non-stick spray. Crack egg into dish and stir with a fork until it's well mixed. Add all other ingredients and stir well. Cook in microwave on high for 90 seconds. You may have to loosen around the edges with a butter knife. The result is dense but reminds me a little of whole wheat bread. It is fairly low carb, especially made with sorghum flour.

NOTE: best dish to cook in is a 6-inch cereal bowl or soup mug with fairly straight sides. If you mix up about 8 servings worth or more of the mix in a Ziploc bag, you can make this quickly with one egg and 1/4 C of bun mix per bun. Makes a good sandwich roll!


  1. I'm looking for a GF bun recipe for our pulled pork sandwich dinner on Saturday. This just might do the trick!

  2. We use these for hamburgers and hot pastrami sandwiches....just about any sandwich! They're amazingly good!
