I’m a huge fan of Simple Mills line of mixes and products. Pancake Mix, Muffins/Cupcakes Mix, their almond cracker, cookies and now, their Artisan Break mix. The mixes are generally just a handful of simple ingredients that I would characterize and higher quality, better choice ingredients.
In this post, I adapt Simple Mills excellent gluten free bread mix for use as buns.
I used Norpro’s Puffy Muffin Top Pan to make the buns. I liked the size (4″ wide by 1/2″) deep and the 6 wells ended up working perfectly for one complete box of mix.

Ingredients and Nutrition Facts. Six ingredients that you can read and pronounce.
This mix can be made in at least three different ways – Flatbread, Dinner Rolls and Loaf. I had tried the dinner rolls for a holiday meal and was very impressed. That encouraged me to give buns a try.
The buns/muffin tops – I used the dinner roll recipe for this batch
Prior to try the dinner roll variation, I tried the flat bread variation. The flat bread recipe is on the right. Far too dense to be considered a bun, in my opinion. The flat bread attempt turned out well but really a lot more like a biscuit than a bun.
I sliced the buns while they were still warm
Toasting two buns on my Little Griddle (on my electric stovetop). I love my Little Griddle!
The finish toasted buns!
A gluten free sloppy joe!
These turned out really, really well. I have never found a store bought, ready made gluten free bun that I like. They fall apart, they’re mealy, they don’t taste good and they’re expensive. I’ve had good GF buns in restaurants, but nothing that I could use at home. Really glad to have a fresh baked option with quality ingredients. Thank you to Simple Mills for making awesome products!
