  • 1¼ cups 300 ml (150 g) almond flour
  • 5 tbsp 5 tbsp (40 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp (10 g) baking powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup 225 ml boiling water
  • 3 3 egg whiteegg whites
Garlic butter
  • 4 oz. 110 g butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1 garlic clove, mincedgarlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp salt


Instructions are for 20 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix the dry ingredients for the bread in a bowl.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and add this, the vinegar and egg whites to the bowl, while whisking with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds. Don't overmix the dough, the consistency should resemble Play-Doh.
  3. Form with moist hands into 10 pieces and roll into hot dog buns. Make sure to leave enough space between them on the baking sheet to double in size.
  4. Bake on lower rack in oven for 40-50 minutes, they're done when you can hear a hollow sound when tapping the bottom of the bun.
  5. Make the garlic butter while the bread is baking. Mix all the ingredients together and put in the fridge.
  6. Take the buns out of the oven when they're done and leave to let cool. Take the garlic butter out of the fridge. When the buns are cooled, cut them in halves, using a serrated knife, and spread garlic butter on each half.
  7. Turn your oven up to 425°F (225°C) and bake the garlic bread for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.

The keto bread


If you don't like almond flour or if you have an allergy, you can make this recipe with coconut flour instead. Substitute the amount of almond flour for a third as much of coconut flour and double the number of egg whites.

What do you do with the three leftover egg yolks? Béarnaise sauce, of course! Check out our recipes for Béarnaise sauce and chili-flavored Béarnaise sauce.


Do your breads end up with a slightly purple color? That can happen with some brands of psyllium husk. Try with another brand, like this one.1 For more information, check out our low-carb baking guide.


This recipe is adapted from an earlier bread recipe by Maria Emmerich.

Keto: Spring is in the air #1

Longer days with more light; the warmth of the sun coaxing everything into bloom. Yes, spring is in the air.  And while we all love cheesy casseroles and hearty stews, in spring our fancy turns to lighter, fresher meals with vibrant young veggies, cold plates, fresh herbs and tart bright flavors like the refreshing burst of lemon.

With this spring-inspired meal plan starts off the week with a breakfast of vegetarian keto scramble and grilled pork skewers with ribbon zoodles for dinner. (Eat leftovers for lunch, or skip it.) Other fare during the week includes a keto salad Niçoise, a seared salmon with asparagus and a lemon-flavored chicken soup.

    Hello I am allergic to nuts what is the best flour to use instead of almond flour. Also instead of nuts as snacks whats the best to have.

    You can read our guide to almond flour here, including substitutions.

    We recommend avoiding snacking. If you are hungry between meals, try making sure you're getting enough food and enough fat at each meal.

    Not trying to be a toss but can get almond meal? If so you just blend or blitz it until its fine making it flour. Thats what I do and its heaps cheaper.
  5. Molly mitten
    Wish I had read comments before I started, now have a soupy mixture that I can’t form into anything bun like! I’ll add more almond flour & let you know what happens. My favorite recipe is way better-FLUFFY PALEO BREAD from PALEO EFFECTS. Lots of protein, I sub walnut oil for melted butter, still turns out great! No almond or coconut flour, no psyllium...
  6. Molly Mitten
    I said that backwards in my comment above about another recipe that calls for Walnut Oil. I SUB anything cheaper like butter, olive oil, etc. it still turns out great.
  7. Mabelyn
    Not sure if you meant to say blanched not bleach. But blanch is fine and most common almond flour. That's the one I use. Blanched just means the skin was taking off the almond.
  8. Lyn Payne
    Oh what a joy to find this recipe. Couldn’t get almond flour so used ground almonds. No problem. Scrumptious. Delicious. (I couldn’t stop myself. I ate three). Didn’t have a auto whisk. So mixed gently by hand, not for very long. I did whisk the egg whites though. Cannot wait until to see how well they store. Thank you.

    Walmart now stocks both almond flour and coconut flour, for those who can't find it locally.

    From Canada. Bulk Barn here sells ground almonds and ground unsweetened coconut (this is what we use), or make your own. Cheaper and more convenient. Keto friendly products aren't as widely available here (yet) as in other countries and if you do find them they tend to be very expensive.
  11. Raven Nevermore
    Made these for the first time, followed the recipe exactly despite reading everyone's comment, they turned out great, although they didn't really at any bigger throughout the cooking process. I found if you leave the dough for a few minutes once all mixed, the pyshlium husk soak up some of the moisture which make it easier to handle. Massive garlic fans so we added more then the recommended amount of cloves. Will definelty make again
  12. Barbara Ankney
    Is the bread good without the garlic butter? Wondering if it would be good for dipping in cheese fondue.
  13. Janni
    3/4 grams of egg white is that 30 grams of egg whites ?
  14. Craig Bell
    I don't want to eat Hay or Sawdust.
  15. Melissa
    Do they freeze well? Anyone tried?
  16. Jeana Kaskie
    this recipe didn't work for me. Not sure what I was doing wrong. I ended up with a runny mess - nothing like play doh. I even tried it twice. Nothing but a waste for me. I thought about adding additional flour but it seemed like it would take a lot to get to the play doh stage. I'm out of almond flour so I give up
  17. Krista
    Why is there more water in this recipe than the regular keto bun recipe? Nothing else seems to change, only the amount of boiling water used.
  18. S Byrd
    Tried several times to make this -- making adjustments - never worked. Horrible recipe! Not worth the effort!
  19. Rosy
    I made this all according to the recipe and they came great 👍 I added a little bit of Italian seasoning to the butter for more flavor and they are perfect. Much better than the cloud bread that for me had too much of an eggy flavor. Will do this next time putting vanilla and sugar (Monk fruit ) on the butter. Just an idea!
  20. Janis
    This is a great recipe but I had to add substantially more almond flour. I add enough to get the right consistency but I would say it's around 2 cups.
  21. Penny
    Ended up with a runny mess. Added 3/4 cups more almond flour so I could somewhat form into pieces.
  22. Pete
    Recipe is way off. I wound up with a runny, grainy mess and had to add more than a cup of almond flour (additional) to get it into a dough. It wasn't bad after baking, but after putting back in oven to brown (as per instructions) it became a brick. Terrible.
  23. donna
    What a disaster! Doesn't anyone test these recipes first?
  24. Gemma
    They worked beautifully, tasted delicious. Before keto, garlic bread was a favourite, so I loved these!
  25. Rae
    I made these tonight. They turned out perfect. No one could believe it wasn’t real bread made with flour. I did make the 20 servings.
  26. Dawn
    Made these to go with soup and they turned out great. I only had to bake them for 20 minutes though. Added a little garlic powder, onion powder and dried parsley to the dry ingredients. Thanks for the recipe! Think I'll try the leftover buns with hot dogs for lunch.
  27. DMarie
    Made for garlic toast, exactly as directed, other than once garlic butter was on, only toasted for 5 minutes. Soft and oh so deelish!! My hubby loved these, as did I and I'm not on keto. This will probably be both of our new go to for bread from now on. I'm going to attempt to double the recipe and make a regular size french loaf. Hopefully, it will be just as good. Thanks for sharing!!
  28. Meagan Cassar
    This turned out perfect but I added a handful of parmesan cheese, a handful of shredded tasty cheese and a teaspoon of xantham gum and it was absolutely amazing
