Low Carb Bread Bun

This low carb bread bun is a quick and easy bread solution for those looking for something low carb or gluten-free. There is no wheat flour and the bread is sturdy enough to use for sandwiches, burgers and more.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. If you are like me, you probably ate way too much this week. On Saturday alone, I had about a dozen meals, eating my way through San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. So now, I’m looking for something a littler lighter. Enter these low carb bread buns. You can use them for burgers or for sandwiches. I filled mine with avocado slices and a fried egg.

Low carb hamburger buns are fast and easy to make with fathead dough. So bread-like in texture, they make the perfect hamburger bun or sandwich roll for low carb and keto diets.

It’s been a weird Summer for us this year. Not only has it been especially hot, but we had a three week break in the middle – a vacation to see parents and grandparents and to have fun. We live in California, so our travels take us to the Midwest and the East coast. It’s hard being so far away from our families, but we’re fortunate to make the trip every few years. BTW, I packed almond flour in my suitcase and enjoyed a low carb bagel for breakfast every day. I sure did!

School starts up next week and we’ll exchange our slow Summer days for homework and hectic schedules. For us, the grill is still one of the best ways to get food on the table fast and hamburgers are a favorite! With a little planning, we enjoy the occasional low carb bun with our burgers on those days we don’t feel like having a bunless burger.

sharing my favorites with you. This one is a very easy one, with just a few ingredients. It really does resemble regular bread when it’s finished baking. It’s light and fluffy, though of course, it does not taste exactly the same as regular bread. But for those looking for a lighter substitute, I think these work out quite nicely.

How many of you have missed a proper burger in a hamburger bun? I know I have. Cheap squishy, white bread hamburger buns? Loved em. Whole wheat buns with sesame seeds on top? Double loved ‘em. Gourmet brioche buns buttered and toasted? I think I just drooled thinking about them.

I’m sure, like me, you enjoy your low carb burgers either naked or lettuce wrapped because bunless burgers are fabulous! Especially my AWESOME DELICIOUS gourmet low carb burger recipe. But I do miss the convenience of eating my hamburger on a roll.

Over the years I have tried several low carb hamburger roll recipes. Have you tried “oopsie rolls”? They aren’t too bad as far as bread substitutes go. They’re easy to prepare and make a passable low carb bun, but they tend to break apart and get sticky overnight. Psyllium buns and rolls are pretty good, but they have so much fiber! They are super filling and not everyone can handle that much fiber in their diet.


  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 5 tbsp psyllium husk powder ground
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • keto bun recipe


  1. While preheating the oven at 350°F, start combining the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Boil the cup of water and pour this into the bowl. Mix in the egg whites and vinegar as well. Beat the ingredients together with a hand mixer for around 30 seconds. Avoid overmixing. The outcome should have a Play Doh-like consistency.
  3. Moisten your hands and shape the dough into 4-8 pieces. You can mold them into hamburger or hot dog buns, depending on your preference. Lay the formed dough on a baking sheet greased with oil.
  4. Place the sheet on the lower rack of the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes. Time depends on the size of the bread you made. Check if done by tapping the base of the bun. If you hear a hollow sound, remove them from the oven.
  5. Serve together with some butter or your favorite toppings. Keep them in the fridge or freezer.
