As a beginner keto-er, this was one of my first ever recipes.

It sounds weird, but there’s something in knowing you can make bready burger-buns and still stay low-carb that is quite empowering in a way. This particular recipe is tried and tested, they always come out fluffy and perfectly formed.

They taste like a very whole-meal bread roll and I’ve enjoyed mine as part of a juicy cheeseburger, but they’re also great toasted, slathered with homemade almond butter and jam, for breakfast.

I found this recipe in the KetoDiet Cookbook (page 26) by Martina Slajerova, but you can also find a great blog about it here.

I do recommend her book as it’s a great way to get started and inspired – as you flick through the countless recipes, it’ll make you realise you’ll still be able to enjoy delicious, filling food, whilst staying low-carb.

The Method

PREP
Pre-heat your oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4

1.
Add all of your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until well combined

2.
Whisk the six egg whites and two full eggs together in a separate bowl

3.
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well

4.
Add the boiling water and mix until you have a thick dough. I mixed mine by hand, but you can save your arm muscles and use a mixer!

5.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper

6.
Spoon equal amount of dough onto the parchment paper and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Be sure to leave some space in-between them as they rise while cooking

7.
Let the buns bake in the oven for 45 minutes

8.
Once done baking, take them out and leave to cool for a few minutes and then transfer onto a drying rack to cool to room temperature

Enjoy right away, or keep them in the fridge in an air-tight container. They keep really well for up to a week.
