Sunflour Buns for Hamburgers


You'll need:

for 4 bread rolls

  • 110g sunflour
  • 40g ground golden flaxseed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 40g sunflower oil
  • 150g pure apple puree (I used blended apple pie filling)
  • 5-6g sea salt
  • 6g baking soda
  • 2g cumin powder (garlic powder or any other spice mix can be used)


  • egg wash to apply on dough before baking
  • sesame seeds for decoration


Ground flaxseed can be substituted by flaxseed flour, or 20g flaxseed flour and 20g ground chia seeds. Using different ingredients may change the texture of the dough, but will result in the same texture of baked buns. The dough made with flaxseed flour and ground chia seeds will be most firm.


  • fresh avocado, sliced or mashed with homemade mustard
  • cured salmon
  • fresh cucumber, yellow capsicum, onion
  • chicken, cauliflower and leek patties
