Gluten-free pistolet buns

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 45 minutes
  • Total time: 55 minutes
  • Serves: 6


  • 200 g almond flour
  • 60 g psyllium husk
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 300 ml boiling water
  • 3 tbsp apple vinegar
  • 3 eggs
  • pinch salt
  • 30 g pumpkin seeds
  • 30 g sunflower seeds


  • 30 g dried fruits, (e.g. cranberries, figs)
  • 30 g nuts, (e.g. walnuts, pecans)
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • olives
  • Italian herbs


  • 1)

    Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Place an oven dish with water on the bottom of the oven.

  • 2)

    Mix almond flour, psyllium husk, baking powder, pumpkin, seeds, sunflower seeds and salt in a bowl. Add the vinegar and eggs and mix well. Finally pour in the water and knead into a dough. The dough is still a bit sticky, that’s how it should be.

  • 3)

    Portion the dough into 6 pieces and form pistolet buns. Put them on a baking tray covered with baking paper.

  • 4)

    Bake the buns for about 45 minutes at 180 °C until done and golden brown.

  • 5)

    Leave to cool so that they become a little firmer.

  • 6)

    Store the buns in an airtight container outside the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months.
