Let’s face it – finding a good gluten-free hamburger bun is not the easiest thing you’ve done all day. But it can be!

I have found whipping up a batch of my own homemade gluten-free hamburger buns is much more gratifying than putting the fate of my burger satisfaction in the hands of the store-bought version. After making my own Paleo Everything Bagels a few weeks ago, I resolved homemade is the best when it comes to all-things gluten-free (or grain-free) bread.

Plus, making burger buns at home is super easy! I use my favorite gluten-free flour blend to keep the ingredients list small (see Recipe Adaptations section for other flour options). I go yeast-free, which not only eliminates the troubleshooting of yeast activation, but also cuts down on prep time.

How to Make Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns:

Summary: All we do is combine wet and dry forces and bake!

Add all the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, oil, cider vinegar, honey) to a mixing bowl. Also add all dry ingredients to a separate mixing bowl.

Whisk up the wet ingredients until well-combined. Stir together the dry ingredients until well-combined.

Beat vigorously by hand (or with an electric hand mixer) for two minutes.

Spoon the hamburger bun dough into a burger bun pan (also known as a muffin top pan or a cinnamon roll pan) or English muffin rings.

I like to sprinkle my gluten-free hamburger buns with minced onion and sesame seeds before baking. This is optional!

After baking, allow the buns to rest at least 10 minutes before slicing and using.

Use your burger buns as the fluffy carby caravan for all your delicious burgers.

Recipe Adaptations:

If you’d like to make your own flour blend, replace the gluten-free flour blend with 1 cup rice flour, ⅔ cup potato starch, and ⅓ cup tapioca flour. You can also use arrowroot flour instead of tapioca. Use ½ cup millet and ½ cup rice flour instead of 1 cup rice flour. You have options!

Double the batch to make more buns in one go. This recipe makes 4 large buns, but doubling the recipe requires no additional effort and then you have buns for days.

How to Store Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns:

If you end up with leftover buns, simply place them in a zip lock bag and freeze them for up to 1 month. Thaw for 20 minutes at room temperature, then slice, toast and use!

Stay tuned for an epic burger recipe that features these buns! In the meantime, get your bun on!

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and bring out your hamburger bun (or muffin top) pan or English muffin rings. As long as the pan is non-stick, you won't need to spray it with oil.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients (gluten-free flour through sea salt).
  • Whisk together the remaining (wet) ingredients in a separate mixing bowl (non-dairy milk through honey).
  • Pour the wet mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry mixture and stir well to combine. Beat vigorously for 2 minutes by hand or with a hand mixer.
  • Spoon the hamburger bun dough into the mold. Sprinkle with minced garlic and sesame seeds. Bake on the center rack of the oven 20 to 24 minutes, or until buns are baked through and golden-brown.
  • Allow buns to sit 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Slice buns in half and use for your favorite burgers!

These are so good!

Question: can these be made as a loaf of bread in a 9x5 dish?

Thank you

Made them tonight. Very surprised by how fast it was to put them together. For me 350 in the oven worked best for about 15/17 minutes. They were really soft too. There was a mild baking powder taste though. But maybe I’ll add a little less next time.

Also is the honey necessary? I was wondering if I could omitt it the next time I made it?

Thanks again for the great recipe

I'm thrilled you enjoy the hamburger buns, Sophia! I love how they turn out too. You should be fine omitting the honey. The function it serves is to make the buns appear golden-brown but it isn't enough to bring much sweetness. In this sense, if you're okay with the buns being more of a cream color versus golden, skip away! xoxo

Do you think this would work with just egg whites?


Monday 7th of August 2023

Hi Kelli! I think they would probably work with just egg whites but I haven't tested it myself. If you try it, use 1/2 cup of egg whites to be sure you're getting the right amount of liquid. Hope you enjoy!

Great recipe! My only issues is that I think they’re way too big, so I made them into 6 buns and it was perfect! Great lift!

I'm thrilled to hear they turned out well for you when they were made smaller! Thank you for sharing, Vicki! xoxo

Love this recipe! I bought the recommended pan and I love it too! Since I have a yeast allergy this was perfect for me. I can have a sandwich now. Thank you.

@Debbie, do you use distilled vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar? What oil do you use?

I ask because I have a yeast allergy too and ACV contains yeast, as does avocado oil.

I typically use sunflower oil instead of avocado, and the only safe vinegar is distilled. ❤️

@Julia, 'Easy' and 'fluffy', key words, along with 'quick'! thanks so much, these are a super handy option, great to have in the freezer.
