  • 3/4 cups soy flour or millet flour (if you use millet flour, the bun texture will be a little more firm than if you use soy flour.)
  • 3/4 cups potato starch
  • 3/4 cups Tapioca starch
  • 3/4 cups white rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon xanathan gum
  • 1 package rapid rise yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water (warm water should be between 110 - 130 degrees. Any cooler and you won't activate the yeast; any hotter and you'll kill the yeast and end up with delicious smelling hockey pucks!)
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal + 6 Tbs hot water
  • 3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons Salt


  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion powder


1. Preheat oven to 365 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
2. In a stand mixer, mix dry ingredients.
3. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Slowly combine into dry ingredients.
4. Increase speed on mixer to medium and beat batter 3-5 minutes.
5. Scoop batter using a greased ice cream scoop; drop into evenly spaced buns.
6. Using greased fingers or a greased cup bottom, press batter slightly so it flattens out a little into more of a "bun" look. Leave as-is if you want it to turn out more like a dinner roll.
7. bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from oven and cool.
8. I make these in advance and once they are cool, I slice in half and freeze. If using straight from freezer, cook in microwave 20-25 seconds before toasting or making sandwiches. This is a great versatile bread recipe that can be used for sandwiches, sloppy joes, burgers, etc.
