“Bread” Just look at these rolls – Keto Recipe

I’m an avid cook and and over the years I have tried just about every low carb technique for making bread substitutes. This one is astoundingly good: Light and fluffy, can absorb egg yolk, tastes almost flavorless and not gritty so it can handle simply being buttered.

Be sure to drink lots of water as psyllium husk is pure fiber.

I modified the recipe below by not using a mixer and making balls instead of hot dog bun shapes.


1¼ cups almond flour

5 tablespoons ground psyllium husk powder

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar

1¼ cups boiling water

3 egg whites


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 tbsp black cocoa
  • 2 tbsp regular cocoa
  • 1/4 cup water (59ML)
  • 100g melted butter
  • 1/3 (75g) cup sugar substitute
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (192g) almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda (or powder if using non-Dutch processed cocoa)
  • 2 tsp vinegar


  • 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 5 tbsp sugar substitute
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup(67g) peanut butter

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.

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.

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.

Serve with butter and toppings of your choice. Store the bread in the fridge or freezer.


Sprinkle seeds on the bread before you pop it into the oven – poppy seeds, sesame seeds or why not some salt flakes and herbs?

If you make this recipe into 6 pieces of bread they each contain about 2 grams of carbs.

What do you do with the three leftover egg yolks? Béarnaise sauce, of course!

  1. Already have great sandwich style keto bread. These look like a great Italian style dinner roll however the directions end with mixing the dry ingred. together! I guess the egg whites are beaten then blended in after the boiling water has been beaten into the dough????
    The receipe gives directions for a never before mentioned cake-sounds interesting yet I can’t see it on the breads!!??

    1. Yvonne, please share your keto bread recipe. I have been looking and most seem to never look like the photos shown and/or incomplete instructions.
