- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter, melted
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon almond meal, packed
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour, packed
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- Sesame seeds for topping, optional
Blend oil or melted butter, egg, milk, almond meal, coconut flour, and baking soda.
Pour batter into a greased 4″ cake pan. Smooth top with a dampened spatula. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 18-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Or, cook bun in the microwave. Grease a 4″ round microwave safe ramekin. Cook at full power for 55 – 60 seconds (in a 1500 watt oven). Cook time will vary depending on how powerful your microwave is.
Make two rolls by dividing batter between 2 smaller ramekins. Cook for about 45 seconds in microwave.
