  1. Just did this in 15 min flat (I cut mine thinner than recommended) and they were perfect! Thanks for this recipe! ?

  2. This buns are just great!! I like mixing flavors a lot, so the sweetish flavor in there is even better than bread. I just tryed them today with miniburgers. With this type of ideas staying paleo is so easy. Thanks.

  3. How thin do your’s end up being and soft? Mine were still kinda had the feeling of a baked sweet potato after cooked for 25 minutes. They were really good though
