Becky's Notes | The Backstory
Best EVER Sandwich Buns
When our autistic kids were in junior high we learned some information about gut health that caused us to put the whole family on a starch-free diet. This was difficult with lunches for school and just in general because little did we realize it, but we relied heavily on breads, tortillas and wraps to make their lunches! What to make now? What will they eat? We knew nothing else but to make them lettuce wraps and you know those went straight into the bin at lunch time, saving embarrassment and stares…that diet lasted only 6 months for us because at that time, there were just no good alternatives for starch free ingredients or products out there. Sadly it was too hard to sustain long-term for us.
This is the story for many people wanting better health for their family, but seeing no alternatives.
Fast forward to those kiddos now out of school but battling autism, diabetes, ADHD, gut issues and now epilepsy. Time for starch-free again. But this time we needed bread.
I wanted bread that tasted like REAL BREAD. I tried so many recipes with unearthly amounts of psyllium (acts like gluten) - think gastric distress...and that psyllium taste? Cardboard is better. It got super old, super fast.
So I set to work developing a recipe that we wouldn’t get tired of, something that could hold up well for a burger or saucy meatball sandwich. Something that looks NORMAL to take to work or school! A bread that could be toasted and taste divine, but didn’t need toasting to be delicious. It couldn’t be purple. (some of you know what I’m talking about, lol) that would never do!
Guys, this keto baking science is a whole different animal! It’s not what we grew up with! So tricky!
After studying many of the emerging great keto bakers out there online and buying ALL of their cookbooks, trial upon trial, and studying these special ingredients’ behavior - we finally got it!
A fluffy gluten-free, light on the inside, golden on the outside, yeasty delicious, low-carb bread! I’m super proud of our product - so far I have not seen anything like it anywhere else. We hope to produce them as finished bread products eventually for commercial outlets. They’re that good. You can make any shape! Sub buns, hot dog buns, baguettes, dinner rolls - just vary the baking times according to size.
And even better, they don’t require kneading or raising time! I’ve developed this mix to be added to the most simple 3 ingredients: water, vinegar and egg whites (from a carton is fine! Who wants to crack and separate eggs?) The simpler the better - so we can get on with what matters in our day.
