Sharing is caring!

These keto burger buns are quick and easy and only have a few ingredients.  Don’t skip the buns with your burger.  Enjoy your keto burger with a bun!  These are gluten free, grain free and paleo too.

This low carb bread is soft like a burger bun and toasts well too!  Made in the microwave it has a few simple ingredients and takes minutes to prepare and cook. With it’s dome shaped top, it’s perfect to slice and use wrapped around your burger.

Sliced and toasted


I usually make a grilled cheese sandwich with low carb bread and use a bread slice shaped container.  To make a low carb burger bun shape I used a large teacup. The shape was perfect and sprinkled with a few sesame seeds it looks just like a bun.

I will melt the butter, add the beaten egg, almond flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl to the cup or container I am microwaving.  Purely to give me a bit more space to beat the mixture. You could do it all in the same cup to save on the washing up if you wanted!

Water is included in the ingredients as I find that even just a teaspoon makes the burger bun lighter.  Quality of ingredients can vary and my medium sized egg may be smaller than the one you use.  So, add a bit of water if the mixture is too thick.

For the cup, make sure it is microwaveable and has no metal pattern on it.  If you don’t have a large teacup, a small dessert bowl will still give you the burger bun shape.

Cooking times MAY vary slighter between different microwaves.  I have no idea what strength mine is, all I know is that it cooks quick!  We don’t have the lastest, all singing, talks back to you and makes you a cup of coffee microwave so if your keto burger bun is too dry after 2 minutes, I would recommend your next one cooks for 90 seconds.

Yes, it can but you would need to only use one tablespoon of coconut flour.  Additionally, water may be needed as coconut flour loves to soak up the liquid like an Uncle at a wedding!


I found that rolling the top of the burger bun in sesame seeds got a better coverage.  Add some chia or poppy seeds for a contrast of colour.

You could add some grated cheese, onion powder or herbs for extra flavour.

    Loved the taste and fluffiness of this bun, I have a friend who has syliac and I was hoping to make these for her when we have dinner. She also has an allergy to egg unless its cooked at a high temperature. My question is… can I cook these in the oven and what temp would you recommend and for how long I was planning to make 6 and cook them in a silicone muffin pan that’s larger in diameter than the usual ones.

      Thanks! I swear it’s the addition of the water that keeps this light. To bake in an oven, preheat the oven to 375F and bake for 10-12 minutes.
