I’m always incredibly pleased when I can find a really good breakfast alternative. Because despite of the fact that I truly love eating gluten-free oatmeal, crispy waffles or my gluten-free and vegan buns, but the truth is that I get too easily bored when it comes to flavors […]
Crispy, gluten-free and vegan waffle recipe? Yes, it’s possible! I’ve always been a huge fan of waffles, so it was out of question to exclude the gluten-free and vegan version from my recipe to-do list (or my life). I really enjoyed the journey from the […]
This gluten-free, vegan and whole grain buns recipe is the quickest and easiest one you can imagine. No need to spend hours in the kitchen or pray for the dough to rise, because these beauties don’t require special treatment. You’ll only need 10 minutes to prepare them and the rest is done, almost by itself. In this heat it’s not so likely anyone would want to spend some time in the kitchen – especially if the oven is invited to the cooking party. But trust me, this recipe is worth it.
These buns will be crispy on the outside, while soft and fluffy in the inside. After so many years now I can enjoy again the heartwarming scent of real buns, which won’t get dry after like 10 minutes. You can put them in the freezer and microwave them before eating – this way you won’t need to worry about how to manage to eat a healthy and quick breakfast anymore.
This recipe is one you’ll find yourself making over and over again. It’s fun to try variations. Add seeds. Or spices, whatever you like, just go for it! Last time I experimented with some dried tomatoes and thyme and it tasted incredible. 😉
Gluten-free and whole grain buns?
Yes, it’s true!
The recipe includes only whole grain flours, so you can eat it with a clear conscience. The whole dough contains 168 g carbohydrates, which means that one bun has only 28 g carbohydrates in it! So they are not only gluten-free, milk-free, egg-free and corn-free, but those who suffer from insulin resistance or diabetes, can enjoy them too.
So here it comes. 🙂 You can save and/or print it, and if you try this recipe, let me know! I would highly appreciate if you could leave a comment and rate it.

I spent some time in Sweden a few years ago and cinnamon rolls made a glorious debut in my life. I wasn’t surprised at all when I found out that they even have a Cinnamon Roll Day which is celebrated in October. (Now some of […]
One of my favorite places on Earth is the area where Austria meets Germany: Salzburg, Bavaria, Tyrol – I love them all. Just can’t get enough of those magnificent mountains, peaceful forests and friendly people. Many say that Germans are cold, but every time I […]
I’ve been in love with tapioca pudding since I started eating gluten-free. It was just so uplifting that i wasn’t forced to stand in the kitchen for hours or cry over my ridiculously mutant cookies. Because gluten-free baking is difficult as hell. At least in the beginning.
But tapioca pudding is different. It’s easy to make, milk- and gluten-free and can be ready in just a few minutes. However it’s not the most perfect food for a bikini body, because it is basically pure starch. I recommend therefore to accompany it with chia seeds and to eat them in the afternoon, because it’s easier for our bodies to tolerate sugar at that time. Or after a workout session.
When I have to make something sweet really quick – something which also looks good on the table – I usually choose this recipe. It has never betrayed me 🙂
- 0,1 l water
- 0,5 cup small pearl tapioca (do not use instant tapioca)
- 0,6 l coconut milk
- 7 tbsp xylitol (or another sweetener)
- vanilla extract
- chia seeds
- dried fruit
- jam (optional)
- Pour water on tapioca and let them soak it all in.
- Combine soaked tapioca, coconut milk, xylitol, salt and vanilla extract in a pan on medium high heat.
- Stir while bringing to a bare simmer. Lower the heat and cook uncovered until the tapioca pearls have plumped up and thickened.
- Check it whether it’s sweet enough or not. Add more sweetener if needed.
- Serve warm or chilled in cute little bowls, with chia seeds, almonds, (dried) fruit or jam.
You can play around with the topping as much as you like. Tapioca pudding tastes great with any kind of fruit, cream, cinnamon or nuts. Be creative and find your favorite combination!
Hope you’ll like it. 😉
