Finally, tasty nutritious gluten free buns that rise well and taste delicious. I often add spice to the mix that would contribute to the taste of the final sandwich such as a teaspoon of garlic or onion powder or Mrs Dash etc. If you don't have chia add another egg but they rise better and are better for you with the Chia. I got sick of all of my tasty, nutritious sesame seeds falling on my plate so now I toss them in.
