Keto cheese buns are a delightful low-carb and gluten-free alternative to traditional bread rolls. These buns are made primarily with cheese and almond flour, resulting in a deliciously cheesy and satisfying texture. They are perfect for those following a ketogenic or low-carb diet, as they are packed with healthy fats and have minimal carbohydrates. Here’s a simple and scrumptious recipe for keto cheese buns along with their nutrition facts and servings.
Keto Cheese Buns Recipe:
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Optional toppings: sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried herbs
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the cheeses are melted and well combined. Be careful not to overheat the cheese.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten. Add the eggs to the melted cheese mixture and mix until smooth.
- In another bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the cheese and egg mixture until a dough forms. You may need to use your hands to thoroughly incorporate the ingredients.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
- If desired, sprinkle the tops of the buns with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or dried herbs for added flavor and texture.
- Bake the buns in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
- Remove the buns from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving.
