    3/4 cup water
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp yeast for flavor if desired
    4 whole eggs
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    2 TBS psyllium husk
    45 grams coconut oil or butter or desired fat
    Divide into 6 rolls

    Great job on the videos! They keep getting better! A suggestion: Use the right or left margin to show the ingredient list or full recipe (if short enough). That will allow us to watch and make along at the same time.

    Where can you find the complete nutritional information, like fiber and calories for this roll? Could only see percentages and Carb count of 2g.

    Wonderful - thank you! Can we add yeast instead of cider vinegar+baking powder and still maintain its keto-ness?

    Ours came out purple & firm, not fluffy like in video, will try again

    Great recipe! In my country it's not easy to find psyllium husk, do you know if there's some sort of replacement?? Thanks in advance :)

    I bought mine from Amazon

    Can we mix it all in a “normal” blender like vitamix and still get the same texture?

    Question:
    What is it that all these so called MIRACLE diets have in common?
    They all cost quite a lot of money, are ridiculous to maintain and always have people who testify to their effectiveness.
    You may lose pounds, but more form your wallet than from your gut!

    I tried the two week challenge and just felt confused, fed up of eating eggs. Missed eating bread and my shopping bill went up exponentially!!!

    I've been living a Keto lifestyle for 3 months now and experiencing weight loss and diabetes management success, plus enjoying great tasting, satisfying food! But I do miss bread.... Over indulging in bread certainly packed the pounds on. I'm going to try this recipe and see if it is something I want to add to my menus. I've recently experimented with baked cauliflower cheese and it was surprisingly good. BTW, my doctor was impressed at my progress and very supportive of my Keto decision.

    This recipe is the best! I have tried many different kinds, but this is perfect! I won't tamper with the ingredients. Made it with (2) whole eggs and it turned out good, but buns did not rise as much. I will be making these buns often! Thank you Dietdoctor, you ROCK!

    I made this bread and the crust was nice but the inside was rubbery. Any suggestions on how to make it have more of a bread texture?
  21. Constance Cameron
    Ive just made these first time, absolutely delicious. They are really tasty, just like proper bread.
  22. Mike
    Eric, I agree did you try it and how did it turn out?
  23. Joel
    Actually I found the opposite. Since I’m only eating real food my body gets its nutritional requirements from much less food. I have resolved some health issues that were costing money and quality of life. And I lost 55+ lbs and have kept it off for a year with no effort. You don’t need to buy the special ingredients if you just don’t bother with a constant intake of baked goods.
    I feel years younger, am constantly told I look 10 years younger and maintain my ideal weight with no counting. Just real, whole, unprocessed foods when I have my delicious meal each evening.
    Now if I can just find the time to start exercising.
    But good luck finding something that works for you.

    I’m new doing the keto diet when will I begin loosing weigh? And at what rate is normal? I’m diabetic and my glucose is under control finally in 26 years! I’m done with the yo-yo diet this works! ... but i have questions.
  25. Lorna
    I find that it only costs a lot if you attempt to maintain the type of eating you had before by making replacements. If you want to buy the flours, sweeteners, and other expensive extras it will be expensive, but I find that if I stick to the unprocessed real foods I spend a great deal less and I'm gradually saving money I don't need to shop every week, especially if you start fasting too.

    Love Love Love this recipe, the flavor is fantastic, my only down fall is I wish it made more!

    How about post it in the metric-system?

    I followed the receipe and made as per the video but the bread still smells et tastes amoniac so I throw the bread into the carbbage can. Would I use magic powder instead of baking soda?

    Wow! This was the best low-carb baking product I've ever made. Merci mille foies ! To the poster who said their buns turned purple -- It's your brand of psyllium that's doing that. I'm using Bob's Red Mill Brand and it turned out lovely. For the first time in a long time, I'm looking forward to having a hamburger + bun tonight.

    Unfortunately Diet Doctor seems to think that converting to metric is just a simple conversion but they forget or don't know that the metric system uses weight not volume for dry ingredients.

    To save on the high cost of Almond Flour I use 3/4 C Almond Flour, 1/4 Cup Ground Sunflower and 1/4 Hemp Seed all the rest the same. Comes out perfect! And just a word if you are looking for a Diet none of them work including this one. If you are struggling with your weight and your health what you need is a lifestyle change and in that case this plan is PERFECT! It all comes down to commitment and how far you are willing to go!
  33. Adrian
    Nathalie, there's no baking soda in this recipe it's baking powder. They're two different things.
  34. Elizabeth
    I agree with Adrian. My bread did not turn out and I think I used to much Almond flour. 300 ml, what is that in weight? And tablespoon measure in America and some other countries is 15 mls, but in Australia it is 20 mls.
  35. Sally
    Did that work for you ?
  36. Cira
    This bread was my first recipe trying a low carb diet. It is easy and so delicious. It was a very good surprise, I love bread and I was thinking it would be very difficult not having some bread occasionally. :)
  37. Packy
    Very good recipe. I can't wait to try making pizza with it.

    Have made this bread 3 times now. Love it. I did make a small alteration, reduced the almond flour to 1 cup and added 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds, reduced the salt and omitted the sesame seeds.
    I use Australian metric which works out at
    100g almond flour (1 cup)
    35g flaxseed (1/4 cup)
    45g psyllium (I weighed this but approx 3.25 Australian metric tablespoons)
    2 teaspoon baking powder
    3g salt (approx 1/2 teaspoon)
    2 teaspoons cider vinegar
    1 cup boiling water
    3 large egg whites (approx 100g)

    It's perfect for making a salad roll to take to my computer class.

    Mine is in the oven now. The dough smelled awful...I hope the end product tastes better than it smells. Fingers crossed! I did make an error...I added the vinegar before I mixed the dry ingredients. I then had to mix the dry ingredients with the vinegar and then add the egg whites and water after. I hope that wasn't too egregious of an error.
  40. Tina
    Disgusting! Not good at all. Blah! So sad....very disappointed.
  41. samantha
    I made these, nothing wrong with them at all they were fabulous. only thing is I substituted with half coconut flour and almond because i ran out of almond, a little dry. I will try again because i know where i went wrong. Maybe Tina you should give it another try if you didnt follow the recipe to the letter.
