Gluten-Free Hamburger Bun Recipe





  1. Stir together the water and sugar. Add yeast, and set aside to proof.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, sprinkle gelatin over water.
  3. In a larger bowl, mix flour, guar gum, and salt together.
  4. Once the gelatin is softened in the water, add in the egg, egg white, oil, and vinegar.
  5. Beat together well.
  6. Pour over dry ingredients.
  7. Add yeast mixture.
  8. Stir together until wet and dry ingredients are incorporated.
  9. Beat for 2-3 minutes at medium speed.
  10. Grease two cookie sheets, and divide dough/batter into six, evenly spaced piles on the sheets.
  11. With a wet spatula, smooth “piles” into rounds, about ¾ inch in height.
  12. I actually only made five, but they were absolutely huge, so I recommend six.
  13. Let rise for 30-45 minutes (depending on your kitchen temperature).
  14. Note that because these buns don’t have any “stops” they will spread out wider as they rise. So if you have bun-shaped pans, or care to make foil forms, go for it!
  15. Preheat oven to 350º
  16. Bake hamburger buns for 15-25 minutes until golden brown on bottom.
  17. Let cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet.
  18. Slice when cool enough to handle.
