Wait… What do you mean “no-bread” bread rolls Renata?
It means that these wonderful bread rolls are almost entirely made from nuts and seeds. Without the preservatives, additives, bleached flours or sugar. Just simple, whole ingredients. This makes these bread rolls completely gluten-free, vegan and paleo.
The most common thing people do when they choose to eat healthier or try dieting is cut out bread. While the processed wheat bread contains many additives and is by no means a wholesome food, there are all sorts of bread which can be a part of a whole foods diet. For example, you can enjoy these bread rolls without any guilt!
Speaking for myself, when I tried cutting out processed carbs and gluten out of my diet, I found myself craving bread… Sounds familiar? So instead of withholding yourself- try making a healthier substitution. Trust me, this recipe is equally as good, if not better than normal bread. The healthy seed bread rolls definitely have more flavor and will keep you full and fueled for longer. White wheat bread typically digest really fast, spikes your blood sugar which quickly crashes, leaving you hungry again. That’s not the case here. Your body is nurtured from all the healthy fats, minerals and vitamins.
And probably the craziest thing about this recipe- no kneading and only one bowl. That’s it. If you are feeling extra lazy you can try and find the seeds already blended but your blender should be able to handle this! Once you’ve got it blended- you’re mostly done and all you have to do is wait until it’s baked to enjoy these healthy bread rolls.

Ways to eat them?
There is an endless number of options and choices to serve these healthy bread rolls. If you need some inspiration on how to serve them, I’ve got you covered.
You’ll know from my What a healthy food blogger eats in a day post I love having tahini (sesame paste) on top of one of these bread rolls. I toast the bread roll, slather it with tahini and have it either with sliced strawberries, a drizzle of honey and cacao nibs as a sweet treat or a simple combo with cucumber and lettuce- they are hard to beat. If you can’t find tahini in your local store- try making it at home following the Kitchn’s recipe.
For me the only way to beat such a staple combo is making an epic sandwich with marinated tofu, spinach, avocado and tomato.This is a beast and, possibly, one of the best lunch to-go sandwich you could make.
Let me know which one of these sounded the best to you. I am so indecisive when it come to choosing what to have…
Most importantly, sweet or savory, these rolls are good for you, taste quite amazing (especial when toasted!) and make a guilt-free pleasure if you can’t or choose not to eat gluten and processed flours. I hope you give them a try and be sure to tell me how you liked them!
All right…I’m guessing you’re now convinced you have to try them, right? So, here’s the recipe!
