A naturally grain-free alternative to traditional burger buns that you can pick up with your hands! They're packed with nutritious cauliflower, immune-boosting beets and are perfect to use with hamburgers, sandwiches and more.

These burger buns are not just gluten-free, they’re 100% Paleo-friendly. This recipe replaces traditional gluten-free flour for riced cauliflower and almond meal.  The result is a less calorie-dense fluffy bun that is chock-full with fiber and nutrients. Overall, eating less grains (even if you’re not a Celiac) will definitely benefit your health. Fewer grains means fewer calories, fewer blood-sugar-spikes and less inflammation. Win win!

A naturally grain-free alternative to traditional burger buns that you can pick up with your hands!

  • Author: Zoe
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 55 mins
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 3 cups raw riced cauliflower*
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 2 Tbsp organic beetroot powder
  • ½ t sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F). Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients and combine well with a spoon.
  3. Transfer mixture to the lined baking tray. Form 6-8 evenly sized balls and lay onto baking sheet. Press down slightly.
  4. Bake at 175°C for 35 minutes, or until golden.
  5. Once baked, let cool completely (before slicing).
  6. Use 2 buns to create a traditional burger or slice them in half for a sandwich-style bread.

Tip: Rice/grate the cauliflower using a food processor, and process cauliflower florets until very finely chopped.

Note: These buns freeze well if you want to make a double batch and save some for later.
