Low-Carb Bread for Buns and Rolls Recipe

Recipe inspired by Maria Emmerich.


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 5 tbsp. psyllium husk
  • 300ml hot water
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • Sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp. salt


Mix all ingredients. Then, divide the batter into six pieces and shape them into balls. Make sure you flatten each ball so it’s one centimeter thick. Use the egg yolks to glaze the buns and sprinkle sesame seeds on top of them.

Put them in the oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes on 350F.

Have in mind that your batter might turn purple when baking because of the psyllium husk powder. Whether it turns or not, the color doesn’t change the taste.

You can use xanthan gum as an alternative to psyllium husk.

Here’s a slightly different recipe from the one above.

Keto Buns

Preparation time – 15 minutes

Cooking time – one hour

Serves – 6


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 ¼ cups almond flour
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 5 tbsp. psyllium husk powder


Preheat the oven at 350F.

Mix the dry ingredients into a bowl and pour the boiling water. Add the vinegar and whites. Use a hand mixer to beat the ingredients for around half a minute. Just don’t overmix it. The dough should have a Play-Doh-like consistency.

Shape the dough with moist hands into four to eight pieces. You can shape them into hot dog or hamburger buns. Grease a baking sheet with some oil and lay the buns. Place the baking sheets with the buns on the lower rack of the oven.

Bake for around an hour, or until you hear a hollow sound when tapping the base of the bun. Serve and enjoy! You can store them in the fridge.
