It’s burger night and a bun-less, lettuce-wrapped burger just doesn’t cut it for you. You’re tired of eating your burgers with a knife and fork and wish to take the matter – literally – into your own hands. What to do? Make paleo hamburger buns, of course! These buns are quick and easy to make, and the recipe is as straight-forward and uncomplicated as can be. Made with a mixture of coconut and almond flours, the buns have a slightly coco-nutty flavor. You can add honey into the batter for a slightly sweeter bun, or you can add garlic if you want to taste less coconut. Topped off with a sprinkle of sesame or poppy seeds, these buns are great for every occasion, from a family dinner to the neighborhood BBQ!
