These buns are super soft and fluffy, perfect for hamburgers, sandwiches, so you don’t have to skip the bun. These buns are also keto-friendly and are made with just a few ingredients.
Inspired to make these using the same recipe as my almond bread.
I added some grated cheddar cheese to the mix.
INGREDIENTS Dry ingredients
2 cups blanched almond flour.
1/4 cup flax meal (optional)
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine texture sea salt (such as Real Salt)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
To make these cheesy 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.
To begin put your oven on 350 degrees.
I used a hand mixer to whisk together the eggs, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. It’s essential to beat the eggs first for fluffy buns.
Add the wet ingredients and the beaten eggs to the dry ingredients and combine well.
With a large spoon, scoop it out onto a greased muffin/donut mold.
Place the buns in the preheated oven and bake for 25-35 minutes, depending on the size of your rolls. You know they are baked when they are beautifully golden browned.
Here are a few variations you can add to your low carb bread:
Garlic and herb: Add minced garlic and dried herbs like oregano, thyme, and rosemary to the mix for a savory flavor.
Cheesy: Mix shredded cheddar, parmesan, or other hard cheese into the mix for a cheesy keto bun.
Everything bagel seasoning: Mix in everything bagel seasoning, which usually includes sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, and salt, for a savory and slightly tangy flavor.
Cinnamon and nutmeg: Add cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix for a sweet and spicy flavor.
Jalapeño and cheddar: Mix diced jalapeños and shredded cheddar into the mix for a spicy and cheesy bun.
Bacon and chives: Add crumbled cooked bacon and chopped chives to the mix for a smoky and savory flavor.
