From Linda Simon, RD, of Kitchen Therapy

Makes one 3 1/2-inch bun


  • 1 large egg     Gluten-Free Sandwich bun
  • ¾ teaspoon molasses     
  • 2 tablespoons sorghum flour     
  • 1 tablespoon almond meal     
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed     
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder     
  • ½ teaspoon cocoa powder     
  • a pinch of salt, optional     
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


1. In a small bowl, beat the egg and molasses with a fork, for about a minute.

2. In another small bowl, add the sorghum flour, almond meal, ground flax seed, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Add a pinch of salt if you like. Make sure everything is thoroughly mixed so you do not see little balls of cocoa or bitter baking soda.

3. Add the eggs to the dry ingredients, stir until smooth.

4. Oil a 10 oz Pyrex custard cup and sprinkle sesame seeds on the bottom and sides.

5. Pour the batter into the cup. Top with more sesame seeds.

6. Microwave for 90 seconds.That's it! A ready to eat, tasty bun.
