Low carb hamburger buns that aren’t stinking lettuce!

Next up in our low carb summer series is low carb hamburger buns because what is a summer cookout without hamburgers? And, I’m sick of eating “just the patty, please.” Thank you, Keto King, for saving my summer cookouts!

I bet I know what you’re thinking: Man alive, that is a long ingredient list. You’d be correct. There are a ton of ingredients in this recipe, but I found the whole recipe so easy, I decided the long ingredients list was worth it. So, if you’re tired of lettuce wraps and eating just a big plate of meat, try these. These low carb hamburger buns are well worth it.

Ingredients List

  • 3/4 cup Almond Flour or Almond Meal (75g / 2.7oz)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour (30g / 1.05oz)
  • 1/4 cup Flaxseed Meal (37g / 1.3oz)
  • 1/6 cup Psyllium Husk Powder (20g / 0.7oz)
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder (5g / 0.18oz)
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder (2.5g / 0.09oz)
  • Salt to taste (or 1/2 teaspoon)
  • Untoasted Sesame seeds to sprinkle on Buns
  • 3 Egg Whites (do not substitute with liquid egg whites in a carton)
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (5ml / 0.18oz)
  • 1 Cup Lukewarm Water (235ml / 8oz)

Did you notice the lack of yeast? Yay! I can always tell if I have eaten too much yeast as my stomach bloats and cramps. Trust me, it’s not a pretty picture, so I am thrilled this recipe doesn’t call for yeast.

Bring your low carb hamburger bun to the next level by sprinkling with Everything Bagel Spice rather than just sesame seeds.

Tip Time:

Tip #1: A good electric mixer makes this bread super easy to make. My first hand mixer cost $10 and burnt up pretty quickly. Instead of the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through my house, I got the smell of a charred wires and burnt rubber. So, I bought this one, and plan on it working until I am no longer interested in making my own bread, which won’t happen any time soon. Oh, and the storage component is awesome.

Tip #2: The first time I made these buns, I was too excited to try them and didn’t let them cool completely then grabbed the first knife I could, one without a serrated blade. My beautiful buns were mangled. Never again! Now, I cool these low carb hamburger buns completely and only use a serrated knife to slice them.

Next up on the low carb summer series: let’s fill those low carb buns!

Happy eating, my friends!
