Craving a juicy burger but holding off on the bread? Ditch the lettuce wraps and say hello to fluffy, delicious keto hamburger buns that are low in carbs and big on flavor! These buns are so good, you won’t believe they’re keto-friendly.

Why You’ll Love These Buns:

  • Soft and Fluffy: No dry, crumbly messes here! These buns are light and airy, just like the real deal.
  • Only 5 Ingredients: You won’t believe how easy it is to whip up these buns with simple ingredients you probably already have on hand.
  • Ready in Minutes: Skip the long, complicated recipes. These buns come together in just 25 minutes, perfect for a quick weeknight meal.
  • Versatile: Use them for classic hamburgers, sliders, or even fancy sandwiches.

Secret Ingredients? Nope, Just Cheese!

The magic of these buns lies in the melted cheese and almond flour base. It creates a unique dough that’s perfectly tender and flavorful. Plus, you can customize the cheese to your liking – mozzarella for mild, cheddar for a kick, or even provolone for a creamy twist.

Ready to Bake? Here’s How:

  1. Melt the cheese: Shredded cheese and cream cheese come together in a microwaveable bowl for a quick melt.
  2. Mix it up: Almond flour, baking powder, and eggs join the cheese party in a food processor.
  3. Shape and bake: Form the dough into buns, brush with egg wash, sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional!), and bake until golden brown.

Tips for Bun Perfection:

  • Warm cheese is key: Don’t overheat it, though, or you’ll cook the eggs!
  • Bake in batches: If your oven is crowded, bake one tray at a time.
  • Serve ’em warm: These buns are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven.
  • Slider time? Make smaller buns and reduce the baking time.

Storage and Reheating:

Leftover buns stay fresh in the fridge for a week, or freeze them for up to 6 months. Reheat in the microwave or pan for a quick warm-up.

So ditch the lettuce wraps and grab your burger fix with these amazing keto hamburger buns! You deserve a delicious, low-carb treat.

Ingredients

  • Shredded cheese (Mozzarella recommended for its mild flavor; however, cheddar or provolone can be used for a more pronounced taste)

  • Cream cheese

  • Almond flour (for dusting and in the dough)

  • Eggs (2 for the dough and 1 for brushing)

  • Sesame seeds (for topping)

Directions

  • Preheat and Prepare: Heat your oven to 200°C (400°F) and prepare a baking tray by lining it with parchment paper.
  • Melt Cheese: Combine shredded cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20-second intervals, stirring until mostly melted and smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Make Dough: Transfer the cheese mixture to a food processor. Add the dry ingredients and eggs, pulsing until you have a thick dough.
  • Shape Buns: Dust a surface with almond flour. Knead the dough slightly with wet hands, then divide into 6 (or 12 for sliders) portions. Shape into balls, place on the tray, and flatten into buns. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  • Bake: Cook for 14-17 minutes or until golden. Let them cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • Tips for Storage:
    • Refrigeration: Store in a covered container for up to 1 week.
