Flourless Flaxseed Bread Rolls
This recipe is from UK café owners, bloggers, and sister authors, Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley.
Ingredients: 5 oz ground or whole flaxseeds, 1 tsp baking soda, under a ½ tsp salt, a pinch of black pepper, 3 beaten eggs, ½ tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 3 tbsp melted coconut oil, and 3 tbsp water
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl with a fork, and then beat in the remaining ingredients. Let batter sit to thicken for about 5 minutes.
Take 4-5 tbsp of batter and shape into a bun.
Place onto baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Use wet hands to shape/smooth bun so it becomes ¼ – ½ inch thick.
Repeat and make as many rolls as the batter allows.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds, as an option.
Bake for about 21 minutes until buns spring back to touch.
Let cool and slice and add butter or use each half to fill with sandwich goodies.

In a separate bowl, whisk flour, xanthan gum, and salt.
Add the dry to the wet, and mix well.
Place the dough in an oiled, challah mold. Cover, and let it rise for @ an hour until dough doubles in size.
