Instructions

Instructions are for 20 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients for the bread, in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Bring the water to a boil and remove from heat. Add the hot water, vinegar and egg whites to the dry ingredients, while whisking with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds. Don't overmix the dough (the consistency should resemble Play-Doh).
  4. Moisten hands and form the dough into 10 pieces, and then roll into hot dog buns. Place on the baking sheet, leaving space between them, as they will double in size.
  5. Bake on lower rack for 40-50 minutes, remove from oven, and set aside to cool (they are done when you tap on the bottom of the bun, and hear a hollow sound). While the bread is baking, prepare the garlic butter.
  6. Mix all of the garlic butter ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover, and refrigerate.
  7. Remove the garlic butter from the fridge. Using a serrated knife, cut the cooled buns in half, and then spread the garlic butter on each half.
  8. Increase the oven temperature to 425°F (225°C). Bake the garlic bread on the middle rack for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Troubleshooting

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.

    I made these and they are perfect for a lunchtime snack!! I did add a little more almond flour/meal although as the consistency was runnier then playdough, but it still turned out great. They are good with some shredded cheese! The recipe, however, does not say how to store them and for how long..?

    They should store well in the refrigerator for several days.

    One of our favorite recipes! The first time I made it, it didn’t come out well, however, I figured out the water was not hot enough. The dough should foam up when pouring the BOILING water in. Now this bread is a staple in our house. It is great for egg salad sammies.

    Have use this recipe to make dinner rolls and have always had the problem of the rolls coming out Hollow on top. Reduce the amount of water to just one cup, add the apple cider vinegar to the water and instead of using a hand mixer just gently hand mix it with a spatula and now they come out perfect every time!

    This is a common issue depending on the brand of psyllium husk powder you use. Please see the Troubleshooting section above for tips on brand selection.

    Try adding more of the wine vinegar - or add in some lemon juice. Acid usually neutralises the psyllium flour, so it doesn't turn purple.

    Hello again - I just had a look at the original recipe that you credit, and um, your measurement for the vinegar is maybe incorrect. You note 2 x tspn - and the original recipe is for 2 TBSN. 2.5 tbsn in fact. for essentially the same recipe. I wonder if this is causing the buns not to rise for some people, as there is not enough acid to activate the baking soda? Also, as per my earlier post, there may not be enough acid to neutralise the purple effect in some psyllium brands. Also, the original recipe indeed calls for less water, and when I made my more successful batch tonight, I only added water until I got the Playdoh texture. I hope this is helpful... tx

    Thank you for your suggestion. Our recipe team has taken this through the Test Kitchen and adjusted the amount of vinegar based on what's produced the most consistent results.

    This is delicious. I ate one before the garlic butter with peanut butter and pimento cheese (separately). Very good! could use as hot dog or hamburger bun in different shape. With the garlic butter added, yummy! We ate it with peel and eat shrimp and mussels in wine butter sauce. So good for dipping! Will make again!
