    I make this bread every couple of weeks. My three and four year old love them. The psyllium husk powder I use has a purple hue so they always turn out purple hued but taste great. I've lost 18lbs since late November going from 172lbs to 154lbs and my boyfriend has lost likely 30 or more lbs. We feel good. The recipes are awesome.

    I have been using this recipe about 5 months, and FINALLY tweaked it enough to make it turn out the way I want it! The TASTE is great. The texture isn't wonderful, but it is very filling, and I guess the Psyllium has laxative properties, because it has worked wonders for my colon! Like Jessica (above) I have lost 18 lbs (154 to 136) and hubby has lost 30! We are feeling great!

    The changes I made:
    * doubled the recipe to make a LOAF, instead of rolls
    * added 1/2 cup of coconut flour
    * increased the psyllium a bit to 3/4 cup
    * used 5 whole eggs (which also increased the liquid a bit to help with the coconut flour)
    and, the most important change.... I added to the WARM water (NOT boiling):
    1 tablespoon of dry yeast and a pinch of real sugar
    2 tablespoons of coconut oil

    I doubt the yeast helped much with the lightness, because it didn't give it time to rise, but the AROMA is amazing! And we all know that the smell contributes a lot to the taste! Just be sure to let it bake about 90 minutes. I messed up a few batches in the early days because I didn't let it bake long enough. In my oven 60 minutes is NOT enough! It still comes out too sticky, but I usually slice the whole loaf (after sampling a slice or two) and then lay the slices on a cooling rack for at least 30 minutes to "air out". That also helps reduce the stickiness. A couple of minutes in the toaster helps a lot, too

    I don't know how much these changes affect nutritional content, but whatever it is, I'm pretty sure it's worth it.

    Try it! You're going to love this.

    This bread is delicious! My only issue was that I added a little over a 1/4 cup of hot water to the dry ingredients and it was enough. If I had added all the water it would have been a disaster...

    Anyone have any info about the amount of lead in the Psyillum powder? I've read that there may be trace amounts in it.

    I found one cup of water to be way too much so added some coconut flour to thicken it. It's in the oven now; we'll see...

    My purple buns are resting on a wire rack. What a superb way to have your bread and eat it too. Everything went well with the recipe as outlined on the web. Once I run through the purple psyllium, I'll change over to the recommended brand, but makes no real difference to me. Next up: pizza crust. Thanks!

    WOW! This recipe is amazing. Looks, feels and tastes as good as any bread. My husband and I have just started eating Keto. I’m coeliac so these buns are perfect for me. What’s more exciting though is that my hubby thinks they’re great too. I followed the recipe as is. We have friends for lunch today so it’s Keto hamburgers and salad for everyone. Initially it was going to be a naked burger but having made this super easy recipe x 2 this morning there’s no need to go naked!
    Thanks for the great recipes.

    I love this bread! I made hamburger buns with this recipe for an outdoor bbq I was going to! They were fantastic... and I looked like a partaker like everyone else instead of having a lettuce bun... thank you.

    I made these just tonight with coconut flour (didn’t have any almond) and my 13yr old loved them! OMG what happened there? Low carb just got a whole lot easier!

    I bake these in a large muffin or popover tin as the dough is too moist with 1 cup of water. Will try the modifications above.

    I made these last night for the first time and they did not rise. I followed recipe exactly, looked good going into oven. Tasted great but turned out flat. I like them they are like healthy cookies. My husband said, tastes like Jesus bread. Great warm and with butter. :)

    This recipe has been a life changer for me. I have made a few changes to the recipe so that my buns are lighter and fluffy and they rise higher. Instead of eight little buns I have four big ones for breakfast sandwiches and hamburger buns.
    Thanks for this recipe
