Sandwich Rounds – The Verdict Is In

This morning I quickly took care of a few things here in the office (still looks like a mess) because it is a cool morning I am being drawn into the kitchen.  As promised, I tried the sandwich rounds from Comfy Belly.  I made a half recipe to test them out and because if I am the only one eating them, I don’t need that many at a time.

The recipe calls for

2 1/2 Cups blanched almond flour (I used 1 1/4 Cups)

1 tsp. baking soda (1/2 tsp.)

1 Cup yogurt (or coconut milk, or other milk) (I used coconut milk but I bet yogurt would be great – I just didn’t have any)

1/4 Cup unsalted butter, melted (or ghee, coconut oil, or palm shortening) (I used butter this go round but may try with coconut oil next time)

3 large eggs (1 1/2 – or as close as I could get to that)

2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (I used 1 tbs. honey but think I might try coconut syrup next time for a little less sweet taste)

1 tablespoon of toppings such as poppy seeds, sesame seeds – optional (I used a sprinkling of roasted sesame seeds)

Bake for 15 minutes (I baked mine for about 17 minutes for a little more golden color)

Now my verdict – They were extremely easy to make.  The rounds are light and fluffy and would work great for sandwiches or as a bun for a burger.  For me they were a little sweet so as I suggested I might substitute coconut syrup or use a little less honey.  I am even toying with the idea of adding some chia seeds or flax seeds to the batter.  I am going to make a sandwich using these rounds at lunch time.  Here are mine, what do you think?

Okay – back in the kitchen.  I need to make some scones and then I am going to try sunflower butter cookies if I have enough sunflower butter or another recipe I have.  I want to serve foods at my book launch party that reflect how I have had to eat and bake since becoming ill.  Cookies and bar cookies are the easiest and can serve many without slaving in the kitchen too long and require only a simple napkin.

  1. I just had a sandwich using the sandwich rounds and was impressed.

  2. One of the only times I am sorry I live in Branson, Mo. & I can’t come over & knock on your back door & say— Hi ya sis– I’m here to taste what ya have been making!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 love ya– they look good– thanks for sharing!!!!

  3. These sound good. I don’t generally keep most of the ingredients on my shelf, but I’m getting there. My husband keeps getting hives and we’re working on narrowing down the cause. He thought it was the inoculate on the soy beans that he mixed with his hands. I made Brunswick stew using lima beans and he developed hives again. I’ve been trying to go more natural with my cooking to eliminate so many preservatives and additives. This is more work than I ever imagined! I don’t know how you manage.

  4. Reblogged this on quirkywritingcorner and commented:
    This looks simple enough. I plan to try it.

  5. Question – are you on pinterest?

  6. I make these weekly. Love them. I put no sweetener at all when I make for bread. I also make cookies with this recipe by adding honey, coconut (unsweetened, shredded), and nuts.
