Sandwich Rounds - Au Naturale!
A couple years ago, sandwich rounds became all the rage. I think they're definitely here to stay. Because everyone likes a good sandwich (even us "health nuts" and gluten-free peeps), I have a great recipe here for you, too. They're not made like store-bought sandwich rounds with refined flour that will spike blood sugar and cause inflammation, nor toxic preservatives. Just good whole foods here! Mostly flax meal, coconut flour, and eggs.
This is a great option for your kids, so they can bring a sandwich to school, and still look like the other kiddos (but be much healthier). Word has it that grown-ups like them too. ;-)
Muffin Top Pans are needed to make the rounds. The recipe makes 6, but I have 2 pans, so I double the recipe to make 12. (Most muffin recipes make a dozen, which is why I have 2 muffin top pans.) Plus, when I take the time to bake something from scratch, I make a lot (usually a double or triple batch), and freeze some for later.
The Muffin Top Pans hold the same volume of batter as a regular muffin. So, you can use the pans later to make any of my other muffin recipes, like blueberry, lemon, or strawberry. My cornbread recipe (with no actual corn involved) is also out of this world!!
Sandwich Rounds Recipe (Makes 6)
This delicious recipe is gluten and grain free. Low-carb, too!
They are yummy as-is or even better when toasted.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
One serving has approx 7g carbs with 4 g fiber, for a net carb count of 3 carbs.

Just the kind of recipe I have been looking for. I have been making sandwich buns for the last six months, but sometimes almond flour just feels too heavy in my stomach. Now I have a great alternative. I will break out my muffin top pans and make these this week. Thank you for so many recipes that sound so good.

Can you tell me the carb count on these? They sound great?
7/26/2014 07:24:43 am
According to the recipe creator on MyFitnessPal, one serving has 7 carbs with 4 fibers for a net carb count of 3 carbs. Can't wait to try this.

Wow! Thank you for doing the calculations for me, Paula!

Thanks, Mari! I hope you'll come back to tell me how you liked them.

Is the muffin top split in half, or does the sandwich consist of two muffin tops?
9/16/2014 06:00:34 am
I cut the muffin top in half. ;-)

Thank you so much!

Thank you. We are new to the "Gluten free" world and I am not impressed with a lot of the bread-like recipes. I like this one and it is perfect for breakfast muffins or sliders. I didn't use golden flax so mine are darker than your picture but I still love these so much!

You're very welcome! I'm so glad you like the sandwich rounds, Karen, and have found versatile uses for them, YAY! I often simply put them in the toaster and spread them with ghee. Thanks for letting me know you enjoy them & reading my blog. God bless!

Just made a batch of these.... Great consistency, and color, but I think the seasoning salt is way over powering. I think i would add 1/4 of what it calls for, maybe even none since there is ranch in there. Other than that these are excellent.

Just wondering what the actual carb count is? They look delish!!

HI Teresa, another reader calculated the carbs:

These are so great - I've made them several times now and liking them more and more. Thanks.

Thank you, Suzanne! I'm so happy you like them enough to make them a regular at your house. I appreciate your comment!

Is there an alternative to golden flax meal?
3/10/2015 09:21:42 am
hi Summer, I like the flax in this recipe because of the nice fiber in it. You can try other grain free flours (like almond flour) but may get a different result. Good luck & thanks for reading!

Does anyone know if ground chia seeds can be used in place of flax meal? Flax makes me run to the bathroom if you know what I mean.
4/14/2015 03:38:03 am
I think ground chis seeds may be an excellent substitute for flax! Great suggestion, Angel. Please let me know how they turn out!

Hi Lux, I just saw this question. Sorry for the slow response. Regular flax seed is dark brown with a strong flavor. Golden flax is much lighter in color and flavor. So, unless it says "golden", it probably isn't. Good luck!

I'll try these and prepare for kids snack and pack lunch. It really looks delicious.
12/14/2015 06:47:10 am
Excellent post. These is worth a try.
12/16/2015 07:38:56 pm
I know you & your kids will love 'em! Thanks!

loved it and the consistency!!!!

I'm so glad, Andrea! Thanks for trying the recipe!
