Paleo Buns - Baked In Pyrex

Paleo Buns Baked in Pyrex

Paleo bread can seem like an elusive dream.  But following a Paleo diet doesn’t have to mean that burgers and sandwiches are gone for good.  As you've probably read in previous posts my oldest so recently went "paleo" so I've been struggling a bit trying to figure out what to feed him when he comes to visit.  When I saw this recipe on the KvaliFood YouTube channel I was ecstatic.  Then I realized that I didn’t have the proper silicone molds that he used in the video. 

But I did have pyrex bowls that seemed to be the right size and shape to make an adequate bun.  (see notes).  Thus began the paleo pyrex bun experiment.  And even though I greased the molds I did have some problems with the buns sticking so in the future if I use the pyrex bowls, I intend to place rounds of greased parchment into the bottom before pouring the batter.

Paleo Buns – Baked in Pyrex Bowls
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 22-24 min
Makes 6 Buns

  • 6 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • 100 g (just under ½ cup) melted butter or another fat of your choice
  • 150 g (just under 1 ½ cups) almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt (not in the original recipe)
 Video Tutorial

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (or 175 °C) oven.
  2. In a medium bowl beat the eggs and melted butter together until well combined.    
  3. Add the almond meal then sprinkle over the baking powder and salt and whisk until well combined.
  4. Evenly divide the batter among 6 nonstick, well-greased (or silicone) 4-5 inch molds. 
  5. Bake them for 22-24 minutes.

  • The original recipe from Kvali Food used 6 round silicone molds (Measuring 120 mm or 4.72 inches in diameter) and suggested a shorter bake time of 20 minutes in a convection oven.  To view the original video from KvaliFood click HERE.
  • I didn’t have those molds so I used four 2 cup Pyrex bowls with a 5 diameter and two 1 cup bowls with a 3 ½ in diameter. 
  • Although I greased the bowls I still had some trouble removing them an lost a small piece from the bottom of two of the buns. 
  • If using a Pyrex bowl as your mold I’d suggest placing greased rounds of parchment into the bottom of the bowls.

  2. Awesome recipe! The buns came out light and moist unlike some other gf bun recipes I've tried. I'm in love :D and can hardly wait to try out different sandwich fixings for them. Thank you so much for making the gf life easier to bear. Your recipes and simple directions are greatly appreciated.

  3. I just made these. I couldn't wait for the rings to come in the mail so I used the rings from my canning jars. They leaked a little but that was ok as it allowed me to taste without having to cut into a bun. I was expecting it to be eggy, but was pleasantly surprised. Not eggy at all. Great flavor. Can't wait to try them as sandwiches, hamburgers and breakfast sandwiches! I hope they hold up. Thank you.
