Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 cup almond meal/flour (5 oz)
    5 tbsp psyllium husk powder (45 g)
    2 tsp low-sodium baking powder
    1 tsp sea salt
    2 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (1 oz)
    3 large egg whites
    1 cup BOILING water


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, psyllium powder (no substitutes: flaxseed meal won't work), baking powder and salt. Mix until dry ingredients are well combined. Add in the eggs & vinegar and mix until a thick dough. Add boiling water or marinara into the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up.

Form into 4 to 5 mini subs (the dough will rise about 2 to 3 times so I start mine as a 1 inch disk, see picture below) or one large sub/loaf and place onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 65 minutes (50 minutes for smaller shapes like buns). Remove from the oven and allow the bread cool completely. Cut open with a serrated knife. Fill with desired fillings. Makes 5 servings.

NOTE! If you get a hollow bread, try lowering the oven temperature to 300 degrees F. It will rise less (maybe 2X instead of 3X at 350) but it will be less likely to get an air bubble. :)

Serving Size: makes 4 mini-subs

    I make this recipe into six rolls. I have made it many times and it turns out great every time. I usually cook the rolls about 45 minutes. What a keeper this is! - 2/15/20

  • The rolls sound great. Have you tried making a loaf of bread with this recipe? If so, I'd love to have the recipe.

    It's the same recipe, just form the whole thing into a flatish loaf. If you don't smush it down a little, you end up with a totally hollow loaf. :)
