Keto Two Minute Burger Bun

The Keto Two Minute Burger Bun is a simple, quick and easy, low carb replacement for regular buns.
This Keto bread is also pretty delicious and it will hold up to your juicy burger.
The best part is that it only takes two minutes! Two minutes! It will take you longer to read this recipe!
You could sub in coconut flour if you need to but only use 1 tbsp.
👨🏽🍳 How to make the bun:
- In a small cereal bowl, thoroughly mix the baking powder and almond flour ensuring that there are no clumps.
See the photos further down below in the post for the bowls that we use to get the nice bun shape. This goes a long way in making your bun feel like “real” bread.
- Add the oil and egg.
- Beat it like you’re making an omelet.
Use a fork to make sure you get all of the clumps out and whip it with the fork to get maximum fluff out of your bread.
- Microwave on high for 90 seconds.
- At the end of 90 seconds you will have a bun in the shape of the bottom of the bowl.
The bun will slightly pull away from the sides of the bowl when it’s done.
Once you remove the bun from the bowl, let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. You don’t have to wait if you don’t want to. But you’ll get a better result.
Slice through the midsection with a bread knife so that you have a top and bottom.
📋 Tips and FAQ’s:
- If you like seeds on your bun sprinkle some in the bottom of the bowl before adding batter.
Or, brush the top with olive oil and butter then sprinkle them on before toasting in the toaster oven
- You can use this low carb bun for any kind of sandwich you want but it will definitely stand up to your juiciest burger IF…you let it cool before you slice it.
It is very soft when it is still warm.
- It’ll hold up even better if you toast it before you start adding a bunch of wet ingredients like the burger, mayonnaise and tomatoes, etc.
My favorite way to toast this bun is in a cast iron pan with butter.
- Burgers are always an easy Keto Meal but you can’t live on burgers alone…
Try one of these with your burger…
🥣 Which bowl should you use?
This Burger Bun Recipe is fairly simple but I have been getting some comments about the shape of the bun so I decided to post what we use to make them…
We use these three bowls just depending on what shape we would like (and what is clean lol).
On the left is a deep cereal bowl, in the middle is a soup mug and on the left is a large ramekin.
For burgers, the cereal bowl works well because it is a little wider and can accommodate a reasonable sized burger. The bowls with a smaller circumference will result in a “thicker” bun with a smaller circumference.
I made the sandwich in the photo below in the cereal bowl on the left…
I didn’t toast it or add seeds to this one or even try to make it pretty for the photo…it was just a quickie meal.
This Low Carb Burger Bun recipe never disappoints. I made three buns in in about ten minutes total including prep time.
If you need a little help making the best damn patty in the world learn from the expert right here…
That’s it for the Keto Two Minute Burger Buns!
I would love to hear from you in the comment section if you have any awesome additions or questions.

The nutrition info for the two minute Keto Burger Bun is provided as a courtesy.
We do our best to be accurate but we will never be offended if you want to do you own calculations.
I always recommend this site to my students. I am a Keto Coach and the recipes here are what Keto should look like. Thanks!
Tried for the first time today and how easy is it, bit of work to do to get my right shape right for my burgers, but now I have this recipe, I can see me having plenty of these buns, can’t wait to have a bit of a play around using some other flavours as well. Really pleased and will definitely be my go to from here.
I am delighted that you’ll be making this delicious bun. I “think” my microwave is 1000 watts so you could try 80 seconds and see if you need to go longer or not. And, as far as egg whites, I generally follow 2 egg whites = one egg rule.
I hope this helps! Cheers! B
I’m going to try this shortly. Two questions, though.
1. What power microwave did you use? Mine is a higher watt (1200) and many times I need to adjust the cooking time listed in recipes. If you used a lower-power microwave, what would you suggest as a cooking time for 1200W?
2. One of the commenters mentioned using only egg whites but didn’t include how many. What would you suggest for someone wanting to use only egg whites?
Thanks! I just discovered your recipe today and am looking forward to exploring more. ♥
I love this recipe and decided to experiment with it. I quadrupled the recipe, put it in a bigger microwaveable bowl, cooked it for 4 minutes and 30 seconds. Then I cut it into crouton sizes, crisped it up in the oven for about 10 minutes at 400 degree F and then used them to make a keto stuffing, it worked perfectly! I realized if I seasoned them before I put them in the oven they would make just really good croutons for a salad. Thank you for creating a quick, simple bread like substitute that could be used in so many ways.
I can’t stop thinking about this bun. I make one almost everyday and I don’t think I could have lost the weight without you guys. Thank you
I am obsessed with this bun. I use it for everything and have been experimenting a lot. Thanks for sharing your talent.
Just made a bun this evening to go with my veggie burger, it turned out great love the taste of it. So nice to be about to have a bunch with my burgers finally without having to worry about a bunch of carbs. Thank you so much for this recipe.
Made one this morning as I just wanted something to put my scrambled egg on! Followed the recipe exact and it was so good! It puffed up nicely and then toasted great, and held up to my egg! Thank you!
Made the hamburger buns tonight. They we so good. Definitely will be making again. So easy!!!
This is the best recipe I have ever found for Keto! Thank you! I was so sick of eating my burgers naked.
Hi Tina!!!! Thanks for commenting. I agree with your sentiment about just making it into a salad without a bun lol. Merry Christmas!!!
This bun has made my month! I added the pinch of nutritional yeast suggested and its delicious. I am so happy to stop eating my burgers with “lettuce leaves” as the bun. What a stupid suggestion…might as well cut it up and make your burger into a salad if you’re going to do that. Thanks again! You guys are all right.
I was super impressed with this. I substituted 1 Tbsp of Flax meal and it had a darker color and a little more of a “bread” bite to it. Sooo glad I found this recipe! I’m thinking about trying this out for a pizza crust.
Oh my goodness. I am so happy. Super quick to make (faster than chaffles) and then followed the toasted option, added my veggie burger with all the fixin’s and…voila…dinner! Will make again and again and again.
This was so good!! Tasted just like a regular burger bun. And looked so good – wish I could add the picture. Love this recipe.
Sharon…I feel you. We are all skeptical if it seems too good to be true. This recipe has been a solid hit at our house for a couple of years so I really can truly recommend it to our new Keto Friends.
New to keto and I was skeptical of this because it’s so easy. But it’s really good! I put some of Trader Joe’s everything bagel seasoning at the bottom of the bowl, and also toasted the bun before eating. It created a great seeded, crunch. I’ll definitely make this again!!
Thank you! I have been craving bread and this is perfect for sandwiches.
I made these for our hamburgers and they did really well.
I made this tonight and used 1 T. of coconut flour instead of 3 T. almond. It worked great and made my burger taste much more like what I was hoping for. Thanks for the recipe!
Hi Lee! These do not work in the oven. Try these or these rolls if you would like to make burger buns in the oven. Cheers!
I don’t use a microwave. Can you tell me the baking time and what temp this recipe would be in an oven?
easy and taste great
Turned out perfect, I might add a pinch of salt.
Thanks Phillip! Awesome idea!
Greeting from Malta (EU)
thank you for this super Recipe…. really works… I like to share something… it also works very good with just egg whites and will not have any Eggy taste to it.
once again, thanks and regards
This was delicious! I don’t own a microwave, so I used a toaster oven, on convection mode set at 350 F. Cooked for 15 minutes, and it came out perfectly. I did add 1t chia seeds and 1t nutritional yeast to the dry ingredients, so I don’t know if that made a lot of difference, but we all loved them!
You can toast the bun or eat it as is. This is a simple and quick recipe. If you like buns than you should also take a look at these sandwich rolls and the burger buns for six too. Cheers to you and your good health!
Question for your two minute buns. The picture that appears associated with this recipe shows a lovely brown top on the bun. How can they have a brown top like that it made in the microwave? Just curious I can’t wait to try them but I don’t want to be disappointed.
Hey Susan…yep, much higher in calories than a slice of Wonder-bread but only three carbs ( instead of the 15 per slice that the regular bread sports). I suppose we all have to choose how we “spend” our calories and carbs because BOTH matter. Thanks for bringing up the calorie thing! I have been seeing a lot of misleading info about that lately and they are important no matter what diet you follow. Keto is not a free for all nor is it “the bacon and cheese” diet. Cheers!
Holy sh*t this is insanely high calorie
Hi! This recipe is a such a nice treat! I just made some and added some cheddar cheese! Yummy!!!
Never in a million years would I have thought my husband would like a microwave bread recipe! I added salt and pepper and it was so easy and delicious and didn’t stick to the bowl! My new go to keto bread!
Awesome! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and I am so happy that you like these. They are a go to around here for sure. Cheers to your good health!
I am not sure about an egg substitute. The Keto Diet uses a lot of eggs and I have not tried any substitutions. If you have an allergy and try it please let us know what happens. Cheers!
Would any kind of egg substitute work in this recipe? If so, what would you suggest? Thank you!
I was so genuinely surprised by how these tuerned out! I was quite sceptical because of the egg and the microwaving (mostly due to my inexperience in such cooking) but they turned out wonderfully! Such a good alternative for someone like me who is Gluten intolerant but loves bread! I can’t wait to use this recipe for more than just burgers, darn right I’m going to use this quick easy and tasty recipe for all my bread needs!
This was pretty neat. Since giving up carbs, I’d been eating burgers bunless. This is a quick way to whip up a bun whenever I need one instead of making a bunch at a time. I added an extra 30 seconds to the cooking time because it seemed a little too moist, and it turned out great. Thanks for taking the time to share this recipe!
That sounds delicious! We also have a shortcake recipe if you want to give it a whirl sometime! Thanks for taking the time to comment!
Great, easy recipe. We used it for burger buns yesterday and the results were very satisfying. We added 2 tbls of cheese as one commenter suggested. We’re going to try the recipe using 1/4 the amount by volume of coconut flour to make a low-carb strawberry shortcake — may add some vanilla extract and orange zest to the batter. We’ll see how it goes!
Thanks for sharing this.
The recipe the way it is could not work with coconut flour because of the way the two flours absorb moisture. I haven’t tried it but you could start experimenting with 1/3 of the amount of coconut flour and go from there. Cheers Brenna
Would this work with coconut flour?
I love the experimentation! Keto On!
I have been doing these for a few months and they are priceless (as I LOVE hamburgers). 2 tweeks I have made that make these even better for me:
1-2 Tbsp of finely grated mozzarella – really improves the strength of the bun to resist crumbles (and I like cheese a lot too)
1 tsp granulated garlic, because garlic!
I think that it could work ( I have never tried) but if you are going to make buns ahead of time and freeze them the best burger buns or sandwich rolls would be a better choice. You will spend a lot more time making these one at a time in the microwave than just making a batch of the others in the oven. Cheers! Brenna

Can these buns be made up in advance and frozen for future use.
Question: Do these buns freeze well? I use this bun recipe for toast (just cooked in square, food container) and for my breakfast egg, bacon and cheese sandwich. It would be convenient on busy days to grab the frozen bread and pop in the toaster.
We used these yesterday and then grilled them on our outdoor griddle and they were amazing! Everyone loved them as our guests are also in the Keto lifestyle!
Tried the buns tonite and was pleasantly surprised. Tasty and didn’t fall apart when used as a hamburger bun. We toasted it on the grill for a nice crisp. It will be our new go to for burgers and sandwiches. Thanks
Came out pretty good just wish I’d remembered to put flaxseed in. Gives it more texture. It DOES work in a toaster too!! Forgot the sesame seed too love those on buns or bread!
I am so glad you liked it Mrs. Gelb!
There was no reason for the omission of salt other than we liked it with just the baking powder. Feel free to add as much as you like. This one is versatile and can handle any seasonings that you want. Cheers!
Thank you very much this recipe worked a charm- very bread-like the texture is lovely and SO quick to make! I added a pinch of salt- is there a reason it wasn’t in the ingredients? Thanks!
Nope. They can’t be made in the oven. You’ll end up with a hockey puck. Try these oven baked burger buns or these rolls. Both are fantastic!
What about baking in oven? We don’t own a microwave
I am wondering if you skipped mixing the dry ingredients together first? If the baking powder is not mixed in evenly this can happen. I know it’s easier to just dump it all into the bowl together ( and I have been guilty of this too). But you wont get an even result if you do it this way.
The bottom had 2 huge bubble shapes, not flat at all.
Awesome! I love it! Sounds like a tasty burger! Have you checked out the sandwich rolls? They are pretty dang delicious.
This turned out great! I threw in 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast and a pinch of salt for flavor/B vitamin spectrum, threw it in the toaster after cooling and slicing until lightly browned and it held together like a champ! Very springy, definitely like a bread, and the nutritional yeast gave it a yellow tint (as some hamburger buns have) and a ‘cheesy’ flavor, which turned out awesome with the burger I put on it.
Hi Amy. No, the oven wont work for this one. Try these…
If you don’t have a microwave than you can check out the oven baked buns or sandwich rolls. They are both fantastic Keto Bread options.
Can I use Oven to bake for this recipe.
Please NO microwave….. !!!
I am so glad you liked it! If you ever want to make more than one bun at a time both the “best burger buns” and the “sandwich rolls” work great for burgers. Thanks for commenting and your sloppy joes and onion rings sound fantastic!
Wow! I gave been struggling to find anything close to a hamburger bun with lo carbs. made lo carb sloppy joe sauce today and wanted a bun to have with it.Ran across this recipe and as it was close to lunch time did a trial run! OMG it was fabulous. I made one in a large soup mug. It easily made a bun you can slice which I did then put the two pieces into the toaster on “bagel” setting. It was a super hit! can now throw away the recipes that make hockey pucks. So tonight’s dinner, lo carb onion rings, sloppy joes and your recipe for the bun! My husband is thrilled as am I. Thanks!!!
Thanks! I’m glad you liked it. The beauty of this bread is that altitude won’t affect it whether you are at sea level or up here in the clouds.(Cookies are still a struggle at altitude sometimes lol). Also, check out the oven baked burger buns. They won’t fall flat on you and they are freaking fantastic.
Cheers My Fellow Colorado Keto Friend!
This was amazing. I’ve tried a couple of these types of breads before but this is the first one that really worked for me. I don’t know if it’s because you developed it here in the “mile high” or what, but I was despairing of finding a decent high altitude keto bread recipe. Thank you so much. I also can’t wait to try your almond cracker recipe
Yum! That sounds fantastic. I can’t wait to have fresh veggies from the garden. Our winters are very long here and we are expecting 15″-25″ inches of snow today! As for the bowls…I have been getting a lot of comments about this lately so I am going to post some photos of what we use to make these “bun” shape. Also, the oven baked buns are my favorite…they are worth the little bit of extra time.
Hi Karen…you could try cooking the tomatoes down into a paste and then following the recipe.
I have never done this but I think it will work. I found a couple of methods here.
It looks like a process but if you are into canning you could make your own for later.
Or, suagr free ketchup has become available since we originally posted the recipe. You could check that out here. It’s pricey though.
Thanks! There was a glitch in our recipe card widget for a minute but we fixed it thanks to you. I went through each ingredient on the USDA Food Composition base and to make sure and came up with this…
3 tablespoons Almond Flour-127
.5 teaspoons Baking Powder-1.93
1.5 tablespoons oil I like to use this olive oil -180
1 large egg-70
Total : 378.93
Thanks so much for the comment. I appreciate it.
Cheers and Keto On!
Uh, sounds great but your calories are way off
1 1/2 tbsp oil – 180 kcal
1 egg – 75 kcal
3 tbsp almond flour 160 kcal
for a total of approx. 415 kcal.
Did you maybe forget to add the calories for the almond flour?
Re: the ketchup recipe
it is difficult and very expensive to find tomato paste here. but I can get tons of tomatoes, cheap, any thoughts on using whole tomatoes- how many, cooking them up first???????
AND the type for my comments is so feint and tiny even my glasses cant catch all my typing mistakes.
first, this bread is really delicious.
Second, I guess i used too big a bowl. it came out too flat an soft to slice, BUT, I pilled on my fresh from the garden romaine with eggs salad made in my kitchen with wonderful all natural ingredients and the whole thing was fab. will be trying out the oven baked buns as well.
thanks so much
I love that you got creative with the recipe! Thanks so much for commenting & Keto on!
This bun is fantastic. The recipe as written creates a perfect bun that really satisfies my need for bread.
My first time – as written – perfect bun for a ham sandwich.
Second time – doubled it and cooked in a larger bowl for 2 minutes. – still perfect – for a bratwurst sandwich.
Third time (moments ago) – small bowl again, added 1/2 tsp vermont cheese powder, a pinch of salt and reduced the olive oil – served with a poached egg and sausage gravy.
What a great, versatile recipe. It really is a perfect addition to my keto menu.
I haven’t toasted it yet. It doesn’t last long enough to try that.
Three years is amazing! I love hearing about people making this lifestyle a part of their long term plan for health. And, wow! It sounds like a whole new recipe but I am glad it turned out so well. Experimentation is key!
It’s been almost 3yrs since I .began the ketogenic lifestyle. Being ketogenic is part of my seizures control along with prescription medication. This recipe is a good one. I did experiment and made a few changes (psyllium husk, yeast, salt, stevia, cider vinager, and cream. I chose coconut oil over the olive due to the medium chain triglycerides and used a mixed nut blend of flour). It changes the nutrition values and added a bit more time for prep but it was worth it.. it came out as close to bread as I’ve had in a long time. I toasted it and had a real hamburger on a bun! I can’t waitto have it as toast to eat with my sunny side eggs, yum. I’m looking forward to trying the pizza bites recipe next.
Thanks for stopping in and saying hi! Four years is amazing! Good for you and thanks for proving that Keto can be sustainable. That is the number one “discussion” I always have with a doctor friend of mine. Great job!
I’m so glad I stumbled on to this website. My husband and I have been keto for almost 4 years. It’s the only way to go for us. I’m always looking for new recipes to try, and y’all’s look great. Thanks for taking the time to experiment and post your recipes.
I understand. But, this recipe will turn into a hockey puck in the oven. Try these burger buns that were developed for the oven. The prep time is only a few minutes more and they are fantastic!
I would like to try this, but we don’t do microwaves. They only kill the nutrition in your food and all you have is calories. I suppose I could do it in the oven, but of course it would take longer.
I think it will work & I don’t think using vegetable once will kill you, but would not recommend using vegetable oil for lots of reasons.
The main reason is that vegetable oil is produced by using high heat and unnatural solvents.
You can see all about healthy fats by clicking here.
Can you use vegetable oil if you don’t have olive oil
The carb count is for the whole bun. Good question!
I feel your pain. Thoms weight just fell off (initially) too. I believe it’s a guy thing. But, just keep going and you will see a difference. Don’t push yourself too much in the exercise department until you are comfortable. Do track your macros/calories and try to stay off the scale except for a once a week weigh in. You will feel it when you start losing the weight and see it in how your clothes fit…numbers in the beginning can be so daunting. Try not to compare yourself to anyone else’s progress. We’re all different and you can do it. If you need help with your nutritional needs check out our free macros calculator.

Yes, but you need to use a deep (bun shaped) bowl because it will turn out just like whatever shape bowl you use. We toast ours and add seeds to make it more like a regular bun. It might take a couple of tries to get your groove. Also, it will never be like the cheap, squishy (delicious) buns you bought pre-low-carb-lifestyle so remember that too. I actually prefer these oven baked buns to the microwave style. They don’t take much prep time but you do need to wait for them to bake….check them out!
Sooo good. Important thing is to let sit for a bit to cool down after microwave. I was way skeptical, as I have tried other recipes before, but this is a hit! Or toaster broke but now I am getting one. This is really good. Thx!
Is the picture shown the actual bun made in the microwave? I want to try it but not if it really doesn’t approximate a bun.
I’ve never rated before, but this recipe is genius. It’s so quick and easy and cheap to make. You don’t need a zillion ingredients either. You can make just 1 hamburger bun if that’s all you need. Oh my. And it tastes great!
Hi I’m really trying to lose weight and also is my husband to he seems to be losing more weight than me but I’ve also lost a little weight but it’s better than nothing I suppose. But just wish it was just falling off me but I suppose everyone is different and then I suppose everyone’s body is different but 6lbs is good I suppose.but as I go along I might drop more but at the moment I’m seeing my whole weight that I have to lose as I’m quite heavy really and I’m trying to exercise to but finding it’s a little difficult at times to do some exercises that I’m trying to do.but I’ll have to try and stick with the exercises that I’ve been trying to do and see how I get on with it thank you bye.
This looks amazing! Just to clarify, is the carb count for each bun (top and bottom) once sliced? Or is the carb count for the whole thing. Thanks in advance!
I think they will store well in the fridge for a couple of days as long as you keep as much air out of the bag as possible to keep them from drying out.
Thanks for reading!
This bread has saved me from more than one bread binge! I am so glad you like it!
Can these be made and then stored in the refrigerator? I’m going to the cottage this weekend and would like to have it ready to take with me instead of making up there! Thanks!
Good gravy! Thanks for catching this. You are right, of course. I need to edit more carefully. Sheesh. I appreciate it and hope you like the bun.
You need to change the wording at the end of this… You do not subtract carbs from fiber… You subtract fiber from carbs.
Example.. Is a recipe has 10 carbs and 3 fiber… There will be 7 net carbs.
I do plan to try this recipe.
Just finishing a bun in a ham sandwich. Added a bit of seasoning – thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Yum – thanks so much!! I have been doing without or eating 1 slice of bread. This really expands my options- so appreciated 🙂
I can’t wait to eat it. I made in in a small square pyrex casserole dish. Can get two bread slices out of it. Can’t wait to eat toast!!@
So sorry that you had trouble. The bowl you use will determine the shape of your bun. We use a deep narrow bowl to get the shape just right.
As for the dryness, I am thinking that maybe it got overdone. Some microwaves are more powerful than others. The bun should be slightly pulled away from the bowl but not cooked until hard. Sometimes it takes some experimentation to get used to “baking” in a microwave. Maybe try a little less time if you try it again or try the oven baked burger buns.
So glad you like it!
This Keto Bun is very good, I made it and turned mine into a type of English egg/cheese muffin. Tastes just like an English muffin to me. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Hi. I followed your recipe and they didn’t look like buns, it needed a pinch of salt, and
when toasted, the bread was too dry.
I am so glad you like it. It’ is a lifesaver when the need for a sandwich strikes.It saves my macros all the time.
I’m in HEAVEN! This is amazing. I have been Keto for a short while and giving up the bread has been a strain on my sanity. This recipe is easy and tasty. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this was and how perfectly the bun turned out. Thank you so much for the recipe!
I wonder if it got overdone? We also toast ours before using them. I totally understand wanting something other than “eggy” bread on Keto. Try these burger buns.. They are made in the oven and don’t take much more prep time than the two minute style. They need to bake for longer but they aren’t eggy. They are made with cheese but have a great “chewy bread” texture. You make six at a time and they keep for a couple of days.
Hope that helps!
The taste isn’t terrible but it just is too eggy for me and the texture is spongy on the outside but hard in the middle. Mine does not look like the picture.
Agreed! My cravings come and go but sometimes I just can’t wait an hour to make a whole loaf. Keto on!
I have fixed it several times. I have tried it in the microwave oven I like the way it turns out when baked in oven better. But you can make grill cheese sandwiches or toast to go with your eggs. It sure taste good when you gone so long without bread.
I have never tried that, but I am sure it would probably work fine if you kept it in the fridge over night. How I would suggest if you wanted to be quick in the morning is to put all the dry ingredients in the mug, and then mix in the oil and egg in the morning and nuke. Then you could have a fresh bun in the time it would take to make toast.
We also have an English Muffin Egg Sandwich recipe. You should try – it’s awesome.
Cheers and Keto On,
I usually use olive oil, but you can use coconut oil or even butter, but you will have to melt it to get is to mix right.
Cheers and Keto on,
Can you use coconut oil for the oil? If not, what kind of oil did you use? TIA
Made these buns for hamburgers for supper tonight. They were a hit!!! Just wondering how to store them if I want to make them one night to use in the morning as English muffins. Thanks!
That is strange and I haven’t had it happen to me but I wonder if there were just a couple of air bubbles in the batter?
That’s the only thing I can think of???
I love this recipe. I did have a problem……
the inside had two big holes in the middle. I followed the recipe exactly. Do you have any idea what might have happened?
I completely understand. This recipe won’t work in the oven. It will turn into a crunchy, dense hockey puck. But, these Burger Buns can be made in the oven and keep pretty well for a couple of days. The prep time is not much longer either.
It was great.
I made it like the recepie and after microwave just toastet it.
Would like to see a “bake at” option, I’m not big on microwave. Thanks
The microwave wont brown them unless you burn them. They can be eaten straight out of the microwave but if you want it browned, slice and pop it in the toaster or toaster oven. The shape of the bowl is important too. I use a deep cereal bowl to get the bun shape going on (if that part is important to you). Thanks for checking in.
A question, my burger bun turned out looking more like sponge cake. What did I do wrong? I really want to be
able to make these.
I am glad they worked out for you. It’s one of our very favorites for sure. So easy!
I am sure your husband will get on board eventually. Especially if you keep experimenting.
It actually took me a while to believe that we could recreate “bread” recipes that would do the trick.
If you like sandwiches for breakfast you should check out the Egg McMuffin post. Pretty dang good and super easy too!
Thanks so much for sharing and Keto On!
First – super easy recipe. We are just trying to cut down on carbs and eat healthier. I could not believe how easy this recipe was and how “bun like” it was actually going to be. I can literally make a bun in less than 2 minutes. We had burgers tonight and used this recipe. Fantastic. I’m trying to get my husband on board with our new eating habits and he was impressed with my new recipe 🙂 I made extra to use for breakfast as a muffin with eggs, sausage and cheese. I am not missing my bread with this at all. Great recipe.
This particular recipe won’t work in the oven. It will dry out and result in a nice little hockey puck. But if you are looking for an oven version try these Burger Buns. They are excellent and keep for a couple of days in the fridge.
I am not sure how well these keep in the fridge. I would try these burger buns instead if you want to keep some around.They are made in the oven and only take about five minutes of prep. They can be stored in a Ziploc in the fridge for a couple of days.
The browning comes from the toaster. You can eat this bun straight out of the microwave or brown it in the toaster so that it will stand up to your juiciest burger. Thanks for commenting!
Thank you, Brenna, for this recipe. My daughter is on Keto, and i am excited to surprise her with some bread she can enjoy without guilt. I am not a fan of the microwave. Would this work in the oven? If so, what temp and how long? Thank you again!
Just curious what type of microwave you have that browns the bun on top.
I loved it but would like to know if I can make extra and keep in frig? Thank you♥️
I wanted something to use to soak up some easy eggs I was making and have been missing bread lately. Thank goodness I had saved the hamburger bun recipe. I make it while the eggs cooked and it was delicious and hit the spot. Thank you so very much for sharing this and the other recipes. It sure makes Keto doable. Miriam
This recipe will not work in a regular oven. It will get hard and dry as dirt. But, I saw your comment and and developed a new version just for the oven! Check out these burger buns.
The recipe is developed to make six hamburger buns but you can use the “servings slider” to adjust it for how ever many you would like to make. They are fantastic and hold up very well.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS GREAT.HELPS WHEN YOU HAVE A CRAVING FOR BREAD.
I don’t have a microwave. Can this be put in a toaster oven?
The salt is a great idea. This recipe is super versatile too.It makes a great hamburger bun but can be used for sandwiches and in place of English muffins for breakfast. I made it instead of cheese biscuits in the Biscuits & Gravy recipe and it made the perfect serving size for one. It tasted great too. Thanks for commenting!
This bread is really good, the only changes I made was I add just a pinch of salt.
It’s fast to make and taste good too?
My daughter andI started keto in January and we love it. We have tried other diets and have done ok but to us this is a new life style . She is into crossFit and I just joined the YMCA. I have been a diabetic for 15 years with a shadow day. And since I started this lifestyle I haven’t had a shot in two weeks because my sugar is under control .
You can substitute coconut flour for almond flour, but you need to use about 1/4 as much coconut flour because it will absorb much more of the moisture.
Let us know how that goes for you.
That is an interesting modification. I will have to try that.
Cheers and Keto on,
My daughter is alergic to almonds. Can I substitute coconut flour ? I haven’t tried the recipie yet.
So good!!!! I added 1/4 teaspoon of swerve granulated sugar substitute and toasted the final product in my toaster. It’s amazing!!
I agree, the 2 minute burger bun is a god send when you want a burger or a sandwich.
Super easy to make! Excellent bun substitute that held up well to my beefy burger.
I don’t want to toot my own horn too much, but I have tried a lot of Keto “bread” recipes and the our Keto Almond Yeast Bread is by far the best. There are also some other really good ones in 10 Best Keto Bread Recipes..
Maria Zayas, We are very proud of this recipe. It really makes a burger worthy bun in unter 2 minutes. Also check out other breads and crackers here.
Cheers and Keto On,
Tried your Almond flour recipe & was nicely surprised that it really tastes like bread, although mine did not look like a bun in color as yours did in the picture. Sorry, I didn’t take a picture.
Awesome, the best i tried so far
Danielle, I think you will be pleased. If you want the really bready bread you should also try the Almond Flour Yeast Bread
Thanks, Thom Collins
Chad, You won’t be disappointed. This really makes for a delicious burger.
Let us know how it works for you.
The reason that I started this a blog because I have had such great results with Keto and I want to share it with the world. This is the most satisfying lifestyle, and I am like you, I don’t have any problem sticking to it.
Thanks for catching that. There are 371 calories and 3 net carbs. I added that back into the post.
Cheers & Happy Keto-ing.
Thanks Susie, I love Ketchup too. It makes me feel like a kid again
I also miss bread and buns!! I’m excited to try this recipe out- it looks easy, and also very adaptable. Thanks!!
Love this! Can’t wait to try it!
I think the keto diet is the only way to go these days.
My husband and I both like the foods in the lists and find it easy to implement.
Your Blog has great ideas especially the hamburger bun recipe and the ketchup recipe.
Keep up the good Blogging!
Hi Brenna, I just tried the bun, and its pretty good for being low carb! It kind of reminded me of unsweetened cornbread. I just ate it with butter….didn’t even wait for the burger. What’s the carb and calorie count on this? Thanks!
THANK YOU FOR THE KETCHUP RECIPE!!!! I AM A KETCHUP LOVER—I used to PUT KETCHUP ON EVERYTHING,then started measuring it by the drops. NOW I CAN HAVE IT AGAIN! AND YOUR KETO BURGERS! YIPPEEEEEE! ?
Nice catch Kelly! I guess this part didn’t transfer from the old page…I combined them for convenience but left out an important instruction. Sorry, and thanks so much for commenting!
Your ketchup recipe mentions cooking it up in a saucepan so as not to burn but your recipe doesn’t mention the part of cooking on the stove. Did I miss something?
