I love bread, and I had to find the easiest way to replace classic white bread with a low carb version. This recipe is actually easier than my White Keto Bread, and it turns out perfect every time. If you’re a lover of super fast recipes, you might like my 90 seconds bread, too.

Ingredients

  • Almond flour
  • Psyllium husk powder
  • Hot water
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Egg whites – using only the whites significantly reduce that eggy taste in most gluten-free bread and help them to raise beautifully.
  • Baking powder
  • Sesame seeds

How to Make Keto Buns

  • To make these buns, combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Use a spatula to break any clumps. You can sift the flours to get rid of the bigger chunks of almond flour and reduce the gritty taste.
  • I am using a hand mixer whisk together the egg whites, apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of salt until soft peaks start to form. It’s essential to beat the eggs first for fluffy buns.
  • Add the hot water and the beaten eggs to the dry ingredients and combine well. Try not to over knead the dough.
  • Oil your hands and form 6 rolls. Place them on a greased baking sheet. Brush each bun with egg yolk and sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds.
  • Place the buns in the preheated oven and bake for 40-50 minutes, depending on the size of your rolls. You know they are baked when they formed a hard crust and beautifully browned.

Why are my buns purple?

If your buns have turn purple, it’s happened because of the brand of psyllium husk used. You can try using the same brand as the one used by me to make this recipe. Although they don’t look very appetizing, it’s okay to eat the purple buns.

Remember to drink plenty of water when including psyllium husk into your meals to prevent constipation.

  1. Store the buns in an airtight container, in the refrigerator, and toast in the toaster when needed. You can also heat them in the microwave if you don’t have a problem using one.

    Made these tonight, they were delicious. Waiting for them to cool before cutting open is a good idea. The one I cut warm deflated. The others had a nice middle. Definitely a staple. Thank you for the recipe!
