Keto and Low Carb Bread Recipes
Since the start, those Low Carb Buns, one of the first recipes on our blog, have been our go-to keto rolls for years. Stored in the freezer together with our Keto Farmers Bread, they are always ready whenever needed.
Keto Burger Buns
No need to use lettuce wrap anymore. Even though Portobello Buns are a great alternative, some of you might still prefer real ketogenic buns.
But we do not have to stop there.
Since mentioning summer and BBQ, we also have a perfect dessert. You have to make the BBQ season as enjoyable as possible. Our Sugar-Free Marshmallows can be roasted over the fire into perfection, and together with Keto Smores, there is nothing else you have to think of when dessert is on the list.
The total carbs count per bun is 2 grams of carbohydrates. Considering 1 gram of fiber, the net carb count comes to a perfect 1 gram of carbs.
This recipe makes 20 smaller buns. I like them smaller as that is mostly more than enough once filled with burgers and other vegetables and condiments.
But you can form them into ten bigger buns for a hungry family.
I always freeze them. They freeze perfectly and are ready to use whenever in a hurry.
As those Keto Burger Buns are all made from fresh ingredients, they only last for about 2-3 days outside, and therefore it is excellent to place the leftovers straight into the freezer.
What goes well with Keto Hamburgers?
Once you layer all of the goodies to make a perfect hamburger, we do have quite a few recipes to serve those Low carb Hamburgers with:
What can you add-in for a perfect Keto sandwich?
Using our Buns, you can layer a sandwich with anything you can imagine.
What are those Low Carb Buns made of?
Simple ingredients but a precise measurement make those keto buns one of the best.
Extra fluffy, soft, and white from inside together with a golden brown look from inside, your sliders, burgers, or sandwiches.
The base of the recipe is almond flour or grained almonds, but additionally, I have used Protein powder unflavored and xanthan gum as well.
The wet ingredient, this time, is greek yogurt, which you can make at home with a few easy steps in our recipe Instant Pot Yogurt.
Eggs, oil, and water go in as well to get that amazing texture.
Do not try to change the ingredients because you will not get that same consistency. And then it would be a different variety of buns.
Hamburger Buns Replacement
Those Low Carb Yogurt Buns are the perfect replacement for white buns or bagels and in our Low Carb or Keto lifestyle, they are unrecognisable from the original ones. They are the first buns we love, adore, and can have any time of the day, either with something salty or also as a sweet variation.
This recipe has made it on our Top 10 Best Low Carb & Keto Recipes of 2018.
This is my first bread recipe on the website, even though for us it was the most important part of going completely low carb.
Those buns go perfectly with our famous Egg Drop Soup, which is so easy to make and it just transforms a normal broth into something extraordinary.
How do you start Low Carb or Keto lifestyle?
It does not always go from a day one. And our story is a perfect example, that sometimes it does need a bit of dedication.
Sometimes you just need time, especially if it concerns kids or your husbands, who need a bit of reconfirmation, explanation and proper plannings for their transformation into a Low Carb way of living.
Well, the story went…..
As we were going completely down with carbs, I have slowly started eliminating all the side dishes like potatoes, rice, pasta etc and either trying to replace them with low carb version or omitting them completely.
First went reducing it in portions and later followed by removing it completely. All of it worked except bread.
Bread was for us the biggest hurdle. I just could not find any type, which Sophie would like. I have tried at least 20 recipes, all of which were refused. Until a friend of mine suggested to completely remove bread for a certain period and then reintroduce the low carb version.
And guess what?
Keto Bread Competition
It did work. Well, it was not like ” Woho that is awesome”, but it was kind of accepted. And since we did not have any other (normal ) bread in the house, there was no option to go back. We used to do “Taste competitions”, where I baked 5-6 different variations and each. Then divided them into plain, toasted, buttered, oiled etc just to make it more exciting for Sophie. I then cover her eyes (as we know seeing is part of like/dislike choice) and we all try each and give points. The one with most wins and that is then baked for a while.
She still loves those competitions and this is how we find what to use for the next few months if she gets bored of old choices.
Those buns are our choice at the moment and all I do is to bake them in big batches. After they are cooled, place in the freezer and then every day take few pieces. In that way, it always stays fresh (since homemade products do not last for long as we know).
Buns types are also more popular for us because my daughter is the only one, who eats bread on a daily basis and therefore it is much easier to store them in the freezer.
Keto Farmers Bread
Since I wrote this recipe, we have found another BEST Keto Farmers Bread Recipe, which is now prioritised most of the time. So at the moment, our freezer contains both, and I alternate those all the time.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKING KETO HAMBURGER BUNS
First Step: Prepare Dry Ingredients for Keto Buns
First of all, prepare all of the dry ingredients, which are almond flour, protein powder, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt.
You can use either almond flour, blanched almonds, or an almond meal for the almonds. They all work perfectly with this recipe.
As a protein powder, I have chosen unflavoured.
At the same time heat up the oven to 150 Celsius or 300 Fahrenheits.
Second Step: Mix Dry Ingredients
In a big bowl, add all of the dry ingredients, and using a whisk, mix them all, making sure the mixture of keto flour is as smooth as possible.
Third Step: Prepare Wet Ingredients
Once your dry ingredients are mixed, prepare wet ingredients such as greek yogurt, olive oil, and water into small jars.
Fourth Step: Mix Wet Ingredients
Again using a smaller whisk, mix all of the wet ingredients, making sure they are combined.
Fifth Step: Whisk Egg Whites
Now it’s time to start with eggs.
Separate egg yolks from egg whites and place all of the egg whites into the kitchen machine for whisking.
Whisk all of the egg whites until fluffy and place the bowl on the site later.
Sixth Step: Whisk Egg Yolk
Now it’s time to whisk your egg yolks.
As you see, I have not cleaned the whisk because it does not make any difference.
Whisk your egg yolks until they are fluffy.
Seventh Step: Add Dry and wet Ingredients
Switch your kitchen machine on a medium speed and slowly start adding dry ingredients and yogurt mixture.
I usually start with 1 to 2 spoons of each until all of the ingredients are used and are inside the mixing bowl.
At the same time start adding your fluffy whisked egg whites.
Keep mixing until you get a perfect dough as you see on the video for making the best keto burger buns.
Eighth Step: Portion
Place the dough into the bowl and using a spatula, portion the dough into the same size pieces.
As you see, I have made smaller size buns, and I have managed to make 20 pieces from the whole dough.
If you would like a bigger burger bun, probably split the dough into ten pieces.
Ninth Step: Shape
Now it’s time to start shaping the buns.
You might find that the buns are sticky, and here helps either form them with your wet hands or oil your hands a little bit.
Once you make shapes, place each bun on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Tenth Step: Flatten
To get a burger like buns I have at the end flattened each bun slightly as you see in the video.
You can sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes at 150 Celsius or 300 Fahrenheits.
Tips and Tricks:
- Almonds – you can use almond flour, blanched almonds, or almond meal. To keep the burger buns white from the inside, I would suggest any type of blanched almonds.
- Shape – if you want to make Keto Hot Dog Buns, just shape them longer.
- Size – if you would like small buns, you should get approximately 20 pieces.
- Seeds – you can also sprinkle them with sesame seeds
- Video – please look at the video recipe I have prepared for you to get a visual understanding of how those Keto Burger buns are prepared.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Can Low Carb Buns be frozen?
That is what I do all the time. Always double the batch and once all the buns are cooled, I keep few out for the next 2 days and the fest goes straight into the freezer.
A perfect addition to our Bread collection is those lovely Keto Italian Breadsticks you can use for Breakfast, dinner, with your soup or as a snack during the day.
How long can you store buns?
Definitely not longer than 2 or 3 days. Since they are made fresh and without added preservatives, they will not last very long outside. I always just take 2-3 pieces from the freezer to have it for the next 2 days.
What are those low carb buns made of?
The base of the recipe is almond flour or grained almonds, but additionally, I have used Protein powder unflavored and xanthan gum as well. Do not try to change the ingredients, because you will not get that same consistency. And then it would be a different variety of buns.
