Buckwheat Bread Rolls

Recipe from The Clean Lunchbox •

½ cup buckwheat kernels – preferably activated
½ cup flax seeds – golden or brown
½ cup chia seeds
1 ½ cups tapioca or arrowroot flour
1 teaspoon pink salt
2 heaped teaspoon psyllium husk
1 ½ cups luke warm filtered water
1 heaped teaspoon dry yeast
2 tablespoon olive oil
tapioca or arrowroot flour for dusting

Preheat oven to 100ºC and then turn off. Line an oven tray with baking paper and set aside.

Place buckwheat, flax seeds and chia in a food processor and mill until fine. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. The dough should be sticky, like a thick cake batter.

Turn out dough onto a floured surface and cut into six even portions. Dust hands with flour and form each portion into a flat roll, about 2-3cm thick. Place on prepared tray and gently score diagonal lines with a sharp knife.

Place in oven for one hour or until approximately doubled in size. Remove tray from oven and preheat to 190°C. Return tray to oven and bake rolls for 40 minutes.

Remove tray from oven and place rolls onto a rack to cool.

Note: These rolls can be made using baking powder in place of the yeast. Simply shape the dough into flat rolls and bake.
