Starting a Keto Diet

If you are new to the keto diet, first of all, congratulations! You are on your way to becoming the healthiest version of yourself ever. Secondly, it’s tough. Truth be told.

Starting a keto diet comes with many challenges. You are giving up your food life as you know it and embarking on a whole new journey.

If you still aren’t so sure about the health benefits of a keto diet, this blog will help you understand it a bit more.

Still not so sure how to get started on keto?

Now let’s dive into our keto hamburger buns recipe!

About the Ingredients for Keto Bread

Almond flour is used in this keto bread recipe, but you can substitute it for Sesame flour if you prefer. It is not recommended to substitute coconut flour for almond flour as it has a much higher absorbency rate and will not work.

You can get almond flour here.

You can switch up the wine for pomegranate vinegar (or any fruit vinegar you have on hand).

Chia flour is a great substitution for flaxseed meal.

Please keep in mind that it’s not easy to replace the bread we’re used to, so while these low-carb hamburger buns are awesome, they don’t taste like the hamburger buns we grew up with and are used to.

How to Make Low Carb Hamburger Buns

In a large bowl, pour the almond flour, flax meal, psyllium husk powder, salt, and baking powder. These dry ingredients will form the basis for the flawless texture of your scones. Mix everything with a dry whisk.

Heat the butter slightly in the microwave oven. Pour in the melted butter (or coconut oil) and the wine (or fruit vinegar).

Add the hot water in batches. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture becomes a dough. This is when the psyllium husk powder does its magic, binding the ingredients together and giving the dough elasticity.

Let the dough rest for 7-10 minutes under a towel. During this time, the psyllium husks will continue to absorb moisture, making it easier to work with the dough.

Cut the dough into 4 equal portions with a knife. Gently roll each portion between the palms of your hands to form a ball. Sprinkle the balls with the sesame seeds, pressing down lightly to adhere them to the dough. Flatten the balls slightly.
