The paleo hamburger buns are sturdy and can hold your messiest burger with ease. They also work well for sandwiches or sloppy joes.

When I was a kid, my mother would often make us the special treat of peanut butter sandwiches on white hamburger buns.

Oh mama, I can still remember the sticky sweet taste and, of course, washing it down with a large glass of ice cold milk.  

Now, it makes sense my mother would turn us loose in the backyard for hours after feeding us the equivalent of sugar in a straw.

Anyhow, we know the best part of any burger is the bun.  This bun recipe is the perfect texture and taste.  It’s not sweet but I guess you could add a little honey if you’re so inclined.  My son snatched one from the counter and happily chanted “bread, Little eat bread” before it quickly disappeared.

Update: A little shameless share. I was so excited (and tickled pink) when the amazing Boy George made this recipe!

What you’ll need for this Recipe:

How to make Paleo Hamburger Buns

Set out your nonstick hamburger pan. If your nonstick has ever been washed in a dishwasher it has lost it’s ability to stick properly so grease the pan with coconut oil, lard or sustainably raised palm shortening.

Place your cashews in your blender or food processor and grind into a flour.

Then add in the rest of the ingredients.

Blend completely until you have a batter.

Pour the batter into your nonstick hamburger bun pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool.

You can slice the buns in half if you would like.

These are really good. More starch than I would like, but really good. I love the “cheese” flavor the cashews impart in savory recipes. I am making them again today with a little onion powder for burgers. Thanks so much for this recipe!

These hamburger buns are FANTASTIC. Thank you for this recipe. I purchased the pan and followed the recipe as written and I had the best burger/bun in 3 years, since becoming gluten sensitive. I am making them on a regular basis. This bun has a pleasant taste and doesn’t crumple like other gluten free buns that I’ve purchased. I am going to try freezing them for a fast sandwich. Once again THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

Hello, I am excited to try this recipe, but have a couple of questions: 1. What if I used only coconut flour? 2. Is the non stick pan healthy? I thought that non -stick pans contain harmful chemicals... 3. Is there another healthier choice of pans? Thank you!

Coconut flour only will not work and you would have better results finding a recipe that only uses coconut flour. You can use a stainless steel plan and make hamburger bun shaped with the batter.

You can use a plat baking sheet and parchment paper and just make the shapes of the bun on them hun.
