Gluten Free Burger Buns (dairy free, corn free, soy free)

(My baked goods are darker like wheat because I have been using the brown teff flour and not ivory,they cook identically just different color)

Making gf breads and rolls my preference has been "batter". I seem to get the best results and it is the easiest method. A friend from a group needed to go rice flour free and gum free on a her breads recently and as I thought about it, I realized that maybe we could avoid guar gum(soy based which she is soy lite but we haven't noted reactions,however anything to keep her bucket empty)and reduce allergens even if I am not quite ready to give up rice flour. We have been using ground chia seed(grinds in a coffee grinder or the single serve container with your ninja). It has worked "okay" for various recipes. We have avoided gelatin as it seems no matter what brand I use Abby has reacted, not as much as she reacts to soy though. So I figured odds are a teaspoon of gelatin might be less of an irritant then a teaspoon of guar gum. We will see. The buns turned out fluffy and tender and springy. They held together well. Toasted and slathered with no-tomato ketchup(search the blog for that recipe) and chicken boob I gotta say I did not miss the wheat at all.


1 3/4 cups gf all purpose flour(depending on humidity you may need an additional 1/4 cup flour)
1/4 cup glutenous rice flour
2 teaspoons ground chia seed(could substitute 1 teaspoon guar)
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder(hains)
1/2 teaspoon salt(pink himalayan)
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar(domino's)
1 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (red star )

1 teaspoon braggs vinegar
1 egg
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

Preheat oven 375

Add 1-2 teaspoons of the sugar to the warm water and sprinkle on the yeast. Set aside to foam slightly.(proof)

Place 6 english muffin rings on a cookie sheet and grease with grapeseed or coconut oil.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, ground chia seed, gelatin, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, blend together the remaining sugar, vinegar, eggs, and vegetable oil. Add the yeast mixture. Mix in the dry ingredients until smooth. This is thicker then a cake batter but not a dough. As you can see in the pictures, a tiny bit might ooze out the bottom of the english muffin form, obviously if it pours out it is too thin, you need to add more flour. Mine turned out a bit flat on top because they probably could have stood to be a bit thicker of a batter to get a rounded top- however I lean toward thinner batter for a softer bun.

(I know my pans are in sorrowful condition! I have nicer ones, but I have a cheap oven and found that two heavy duty cookie sheets layered offer more even baking,since they get a fresh cover of tin or parchment with each use I just ignore their sorrowful look!)

Spoon the batter into the prepared english muffin rings.

Cover lightly and let rise in a warm place until double.

Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes.
