Why are these the BEST keto buns? Try them and you tell me!

So what is not to love.

Only 4 ingredients. Nut free, quick to prepare and bake, less than 1g net carbs per 2 bun halves. Oh and yeah these taste amazing.

Ingredients

These super simple buns only need 4 ingredients. Here is all you need! (Read on for some substitutes and some different ways to bake them).

How to Make Them

These zero carb buns are super simple to make. You don’t need any fancy appliances and they take no time to whip up. You may know we have loads of keto bread recipes on here and low carb buns too but these are the best buns for 2 main reasons in my eyes.

  1. They are quick to make. I hate spending a lot of time in the kitchen so mixing 4 ingredients (plus seasoning) in a bowl popping into some egg rings and baking for 10-15 minutes makes these pretty amazeballs.
  2. Number 2 reason is a few actually. They taste great, hold together perfectly for a burger without crumbling or falling apart. Plus they aren’t heavy!

One thing I have learned to enjoy since starting a keto diet is that I really enjoy a burger sans bun. Buns even some low carb or keto bun recipes are still too heavy with a burger. These keto buns are the perfect way to still eat a burger in your hands and not get messy or bloated with too much “bun”.

Baking Tips

So first up let’s look at different ways to cook these bad boys.

In keeping with my love of speedy recipes I pretty much making my keto buns in the Thermomix. I give them a quick mix and then into the rings and bake them in the oven but of course there is other ways.

Low Carb Buns baked in the Air Fryer

Can these buns be cooked in an air fryer? Oh yes, they can. From our testers using an air fryer and Ninja Foodie the best results were from using silicone egg rings (or tart moulds) for 10 min/190℃. Add extra time if needed.

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

Notes

  1. I use large silicone egg rings for moulds. They stop any spread of the bun and make a perfect size for burgers or sandwiches. Alternatively use smaller egg rings or a large muffin tray for smaller buns.
  2. Buns can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days or frozen in an airtight ziplock bag.
  3. Add spices for added flavour.
  4. Hemp seeds can be substituted with sesame seeds but I really recommend using hemp seeds.
  5. Any cheese can be substituted. I like to use a triple mix of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan pre-shredded from Woolworths.
  6. Buns can be cooked in the air fryer, pie maker or toaster.
  7. Nutritional is per bun. Two “buns” will be needs per burger. For 2 halves I calculated the nutritional as 192kCal, 1g net carbs, 15g protein and 14g Fat.

    Very nice but a bit bland on their own. Granted, that’s not what they’re designed for but I added a half teaspoon of mixed herbs and it made a lovely snack 😀

    My partner on keto loved this. I cooked them in ramekins for shape. Was worried about sticking, but the fat in the cheese did its work. I swapped chia seeds in for hemp cause it’s what I already had. Worked well. Will make again!

  3. Gael C

    Absolutely love these, so quick and easy. As I’m not a big egg eater I don’t have egg rings. Decided to try my pancake maker. They came out perfectly. Will make these again and again. Perfect for lunch with some avocado. yummmmy
