Keto Bun Recipe

These keto buns are the best on the planet! Literally. When I started following the keto diet, one thing I missed on occasion was bread.  I didn't eat gluten prior, but I did eat gluten free bread on occasion.  I knew that a satisfying ketogenic bun recipe had to be in my future.

So, I tried a ton of recipes, things like cloud bread (not a fan) and other low carb buns, but they all tasted like eggs or didn't keep well in the fridge.

Then I researched and tried different recipes. After some trial and error, I created this keto bun recipe after finding some inspiration!

I make these low carb and keto buns almost every day and I haven't looked back! These incredibly tasty buns can be made in a variety of ways, but I tend to make them in bun form. The best part is that they are so hard to screw up (thankfully)!

Now, you will have to get your hands a little dirty in order to mix them properly.  Doing the final kneading with a spatula just doesn't quite cut it the way using your hands will do!  So, clean those hands and don't be afraid to get them dirty!

Can I Freeze Keto Buns?

You certainly can freeze keto buns! The best way to freeze them is to use a vacuum sealer to get all the air out, but if you don't have one - don't fret. You can still freeze them, they just don't keep as long if there is moisture in the bag.

Definitely wait until they are fully cooled before freezing them, however. That would be my "pro tip" after having frozen them so much. It will help keep moisture out of the freezer bag.

What is the Consistency of These Keto Buns?

These ketogenic buns are fluffy, tasty, and most importantly they do not taste like egg! I cannot stand egg bread or cloud bread.

The consistency of keto buns is crucial! Unlike traditional bread, which relies on gluten for its structure, keto buns require alternative ingredients to achieve a similar texture. A good keto bun should be light, fluffy, and slightly chewy, providing a satisfying bite without the dense heaviness associated with higher carb bread.

How to Make Ketogenic Buns

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, blend together all of the ingredients except for the sesame seeds until well combined. Let sit for several minutes.

Using a knife, slice an “x” shape into the top of each roll. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.

What Can I Eat These Low Carb Buns With?

I use these keto buns for pretty much everything: Sandwiches, dipping in egg yolks, burger buns, as a snack, etc... 

What I love the most is that sometimes my kids will grab a bun and just eat it plain rather than grabbing a traditional kid's snack.  That makes me happy.  

Seriously, though, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy them as a vessel for your favorite burger patties, piled high with fresh vegetables and a dollop of sugar free mayo. They also make a perfect accompaniment to savory pulled pork or grilled chicken, allowing you to create yummy sandwiches.

For breakfast, top them with avocado, bacon, and a perfectly poached egg to kickstart your day

This recipe is most definitely family approved!

Tips for Making This Keto Bun Recipe

Tip #1

Get your CLEAN hand dirty.  Once everything is in the bowl and mixed lightly, you may want to use your hands and fold the dough.  It is not necessary, but I find that it works the best! Wash your hands before you start and again at the end!

Tip #2

They don't need to look pretty when you slop them on the baking sheet.  Any shape will do!

Toppings for Keto Buns

I top these delicious low carb buns with sesame seeds or even Everything but the Bagel seasoning. My kids really enjoy the Everything but the Bagel seasoning the best!

What Are Keto Buns Made Of?

Ketogenic buns are usually made with almond flour, psyllium husk, flax, baking powder egg, and apple cider. Or some variation of that. The store bought keto buns will often have wheat and a host of other icky ingredients. My advice is to make your own with this keto bun recipe!

Kitchen Essentials To Make This Keto Buns Recipe

Nothing fancy is needed for this recipe! 

Two things that come in handy are a whisk and a ceramic baking sheet.  I mean, a baking sheet is a must, right?  I just happen to like the ceramic ones.
