Keto Burger Buns

You can still enjoy a classic hamburger with these keto burger buns.  At only 4g net carbs a bun you can enjoy another!

These keto burger buns are made from three low carb flours.  Almond flour, coconut flour and ground flaxseed to make buns that are light and soft in texture, without being too “eggy”.  Sprinkled with sesame seeds for an authentic burger bun flourish too.

The trick to making these keto burger buns light is separating the eggs and whisking the egg whites.  The egg yolk is then folded into the egg whites.  I also used psyllium husk powder and xanthan gum to help bind the bun and give it a more “bread” texture. The tops split a bit but that made them look more realistic.

I have a few low carb bun recipes that use psyllium husk powder for the binder in place of yeast, but thought I’d try adding a dash of xanthan gum this time.  Did it make a difference?  To be honest I think it did a little but would have to try the recipe again without it to be sure.  The texture of these keto buns is lighter than my other ones so it might the missing factor.

We both enjoyed these buns with my halloumi burger.  The next time I’ll spoil the Chief Taster and make him a chicken burger!  I kept the remaining buns in the fridge and we had them for breakfast with eggs and cheese.  As well as being delicious they are filling too which is always a great way to start the day.  Although the Chief Taster would not say no to starting the day with a chicken burger.  Maybe on his birthday!

    I have made this twice. Both times are good, light but not fluffy though. Have tried other recipes esp. with egg white.. never succeed… Delivered to Me. Bin.
    What do I miss for unable to get those bubbly spongy result as in your bread? And the color of my bread is dull dark light black and slightly brown in color.. not vibrant and bread-look as yours.
    I will make again 😀

      I wonder if it is the pysllium husk powder that you are using that changes the colour? I’ve used brands that have yielded purple bread too.

    The buns look fantastic, I always love your recipes! Before I make them, can you tell me when do you put in the 1/2 cup of hot water as it’s not in the method? Perhaps at the same time as the oil? Thank you again for all your inspirational recipes 💕

      I’ve updated the recipe as it should be added after the egg mixture. I made a batch today for breakfast and hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

    I would like to make these but is there anything I could use instead of the almond flour. Would ordinary gf flour be ok? I know this wouldn’t make them Keto but I don’t mind that occasionally.

    Can you recommend a replacement for the flaxseed? Allergic to it!

      Another tablespoon of psyllium husk powder should work.
