What’s good about it?

Almond flour is popular paleo and keto alternative to regular flour. Almond flour is incredibly nutritious. It’s particularly rich in vitamin E and magnesium and provides fibre and protein.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4. Lightly grease a baking tray.
  2. Place the almond flour, psyllium husks, baking powder, salt in a food processor or large bowl and mix to combine.
  3. With the food processor running add the egg whites and apple cider vinegar.
  4. Pour in the boiling water and poppy seeds and process to form a soft dough. You can do this in a bowl as well but you will need to knead the mixture for a couple of minutes so it comes together to form a springy dough.
  5. Divide the dough into four pieces. Roll each piece into a small ball.
  6. Place on the baking tray and brush the tops with the leftover egg yolks.
  7. Scatter with poppy seeds.
  8. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes until cooked through and golden brown.
