Ingredients For These Keto Buns

The ingredients you will need for these fantastic keto buns with psyllium are super simple to find and a staple in most of the keto pantries. Here is a list of everything you will need:

keto bread ingredients with psyllium husks and almond flour
  • Almond Flour – I love to use this flour in all my recipes that need to be baked in the oven.
  • Psyllium Husk
  • Salt – Guys, you already know that we can’t make a recipe without salt.
  • Boiling Water – We use boiling water to activate the psyllium husk powder.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – if you don’t have apple cider vinegar, you can replace it with white vinegar. The vinegar will give the bun a bread-like texture and a hint of springiness.
  • Egg Whites – This perfectly balances the moisture content of the rolls. We don’t use egg yolks because the buns won’t rise this way.
  • Baking Powder gave the buns a light, airy texture similar to traditional hamburger buns. But you can easily replace it with baking soda.
  • Sesame Seeds are optional, but you will not regrate them if you use them.
  • Olive Oil – you can also use some coconut oil.

This recipe is perfect for you if you want to enjoy a sandwich and still burn fat for fuel. There’s no doubt that you are looking for a non-eggy keto bread recipe.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Buns

  • Before forming the buns, make sure the batter has thickened.
  • Wet your hands if the dough is too sticky to make into rolls. Wet hands will make the batter less sticky.
  • After removing the rolls from the pan, let them cool on a cooling rack.

Storing Ideas

  • Fridge: You can store these keto buns in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Freezer: You can also freeze them. All you have to do is put the buns in freezer bags and store them for up to three months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Keto Bread?

Keto bread is a loaf made from a mixture of low-carb ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, ground psyllium husks, eggs, healthy fats, and condiments.

The endpoint is to make a keto bread that resembles in texture and taste to the real bread without using wheat flour. The reason we want to cook bread without wheat flour is to reduce the carbohydrate intake.

How Many Carbs are in these Almond Flour Buns?

I divided the keto dough into 9 small buns. You can make 4 or 6 bigger buns and use them for sandwiches or delicious juicy burgers if you want.

If you use the same ingredients, the macro count depends on how many buns you make.

One of the 9 keto buns has 6g of total carbs, from which 4g is dietary fiber. So, one keto bun has only 2g net carbs.

To calculate the net carbs, you must subtract the fiber and sugar alcohols (if any) from the total carb count.

Are These Keto Buns Dairy-Free?

The good news is that this keto buns recipe is dairy-free since we don’t use any milk products in it.

What Can I Do If I Am Allergic To Almonds?

It is possible to substitute almond flour with coconut flour in keto recipes. However, you will need to add 1/2 coconut flour and increase the liquids since the coconut flour absorbs way more water than almond flour.

Making this recipe with coconut will impact the taste as it is slightly sweeter than almond flour.

How Many Calories Are In These Keto Buns?

Some recipes that use almond flour are pretty high in calories, but this one has only 123 calories for a keto bun. The results may vary if you use different ingredients, so make sure to use an app to track your macros.

Why Use Psyllium Husks In A Keto Bread?

Psyllium husk is a powder form that acts as a binder of wheat-free flour. As a result, it will make the bread hold together and not fall apart easily.

To activate the psyllium husk powder properties, we need to add hot (boiling water).

I love that when baking with psyllium powder, the keto bread tastes like multigrain bread.

Psyllium husks have great health benefits. Their high dietary fiber helps to:

  • suppress appetite
  • relieve constipation
  • improve lipids level
  • lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • cleanse your body
  • decrease acid reflux
  • prevent colon cancer

  1. Favorite keto “bread” recipe we have used so far. And we’ve tried a few! Amazing! With some kerrygold butter, omg! Love, thank you!

    1. 5 stars
      I completely agree! I wasn’t sure what to do with the egg yolks, so I made some keto friendly custard. I had the bun with butter and custard. I’m in love!! Best bread ever!

    1. It depends on the bread of the psyllium husk powder you are using. They are still good to eat if you don't mind the color. If there are any psyllium seeds in the mix, instead of husk, you will end up with a blue bread. Psyllium seeds have some (iridoid) compounds in them which turn blue when heated in the presence of protein.

  2. Have these in the oven now. The one I checked by gently touching after 40 mins collapsed. I left them in for a bit longer and won’t touch the others. Do you know what would cause this?

  3. Hi! I made the almond meal & psyllium rolls & they turned ou great! But I think a teaspoon of salt is too much and the texture was good but are they supposed to have a gritty feel & is that from the psyllium? Thank you! Janet

  4. I just made these, and it seems like the one (1) cup of water is too much. My dough is not firm at all. Is the one (1) cup of water too much? When I watched the video, it didn’t seem like you added that much water, but I couldn’t tell the measurement from that. In addition, the recipe calls for three (3) egg whites, but in the video, you only use two (2). Can you please clarify the measurement amounts?

    1. Hi there. I just rewatched the video, and I used all three egg whites, but my editing skills back then were not that awesome. So by the time I added the third egg white, you can see the egg disappears from the bowl. Just let your dough sit for a few minutes. I made this recipes ton of times, and these are the correct measurements. Maybe your eggs were larger. You can always add a tbsp more of almond flour to adjust the consistency of the dough. What kind of psyllium husk powder are you using?

      1. I’m using Milliard organic whole psyllium husk and I use large eggs for everything. I ended up adding 3/4 cup more of almond flour to get it to a consistency I could work with, but still didn’t look as thick as yours. I made the dough into buns for hamburgers, and they really seemed to come out fine, so that was good! I appreciate your answer!

  5. Every bread/bun recipe has a spongy taste when chewing and shallowing., including this recipe! The “Jury” still out on this bun because of that. No egg taste but spongy like every other Keto bread, so I am afraid to waste 7 eggs making your bread recipe. Why are all bread recipes spongy tasting? Anyone else feel the same way?

  6. 5 stars
    Wow! These are really, really good! I was worried when I was making them. The dough was a little sticky and didn’t smell great. I just went straight from the bowl to making rolls (skipped the loaf part) and they turned out great! Thank you so much for posting this one. Exactly what we were craving to stick to our keto diet.

  7. 5 stars
    I have been trying so many Keto bread/roll recipes and have been constantly disappointed. BUT, these rolls are the best I have made! They are light, not eggy and remind me of wheat rolls. So thankful for this recipe as I was getting so discouraged trying to find a replacement for bread. My new favorite for rolls and hamburger buns! Also added 1 Tablespoon of Swerve for a light sweetness. They were perfect!

  8. 5 stars
    Thank you for the grate recipe !!! I would like to ask you if i can replace ground psyllium husk , with Flaxseed!

  9. 5 stars
    I’ve tried more than a few keto bread/bun recipes. This one is my absolute favorite! The ‘no eggy’ flavor is the absolute truth! These are just good to eat with butter or make hotdog buns out of them! Thank you so much for posting the recipe
    Michelle

  10. 5 stars
    These buns are fantastic! The dough comes together very easily in just a couple of minutes. I divided the whole dough ball into equal quarters, then divided those in half for eight total buns. I flattened the balls slightly before baking. They puffed up nicely, and the texture is so much more “bread-like” than other keto breads I have tried. I’m sold on the psyllium husk for bread baking! I used the powdered form, not “ground,” because I couldn’t find it.
