The Best Low Carb Bread for Buns and Rolls

Do you love bread? It’s probably the #1 food that people miss the most when it comes to following a low carb diet.

There are many keto bread recipes but in our opinion, this is probably the best keto bread substitute ever.

Here’s why: This one is simply amazing, delicious and it doesn’t taste so eggy like other bread recipes. It is light and fluffy and tastes almost flavorless. You can top with sesame seeds. It can absorb egg yolk and not gritty. This is probably the closest to a normal bread you can get.

You can use this recipe to make normal bread or subway bread with ham, bacon or meat balls as filling like this:

You can sprinkle some seeds and topping such as some salt flakes and herbs on the bread before you take it into the oven. If you make this recipe into 6 pieces of bread, they each contain about 3 g of net carbs. Now you can have room for creative filling ideas such as chicken pate, smoked chicken, salt and pepper grilled chicken, Tuna or meat balls, ham and bacon like a subway sandwich.

You can also use this recipe to make the perfect Keto Hamburger Buns like what our friend Hannah from did here. You definitely want to follow Hannah on Instagram @healyeatsreal for more amazing original real food recipes as well as healthy living tips.

Our friend Emma from @lowcarbmalta just shared with us her version of Home Made Gluten Free Hamburger Buns.

Her recipe is slightly different from our recipe below. However, we’d love to share her version here so you can also give it a try:

Ingredients for 6 buns:

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


  • Mix all ingredients and divide into 6 pieces and shape each into a ball. Flatten the ball so it’s about 1 centimeter thick.
  • Glaze with egg yolk and sprinkle sesame seeds on top of the bun.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes on 175C (350F) degrees. Enjoy!

If you follow Emma’s recipe, the result will look like this:

Home Made Low Carb Keto Gluten Free Hamburger Buns


Note: Some psyllium husk powder brands might make the dough turn purple when baked. It also depends on the order and method you use to combine the ingredients. However, it doesn’t affect the taste.

If you don’t want to use psyllium husk, you can try xanthan gum instead, like these Keto Hamburgers.

Make this bread in the weekend, get a cup of coffee, sit outside in the sun and enjoy your morning. What a lovely way to relax!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and add it, the vinegar and egg whites to the bowl, while beating with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds. Don’t over mix the dough, the consistency should resemble Play-Doh.
  3. Moisten hands and form dough into 4 or 8 pieces of bread. You can also make hot dog or hamburger buns. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake on lower rack in oven for 50–60 minutes, depending on the size of your bread. They’re done when you hear a hollow sound when tapping the bottom of the bun.
  5. Serve with butter and toppings of your choice. Store the bread in the fridge or freezer.
