Keto Bread Roll Recipe

Eating bread was one of the hardest things to give up when I switched to Keto, so I was on a mission to find a keto bread recipe.

Sandwiches and salad had been a lunchtime staple and I am a girl who likes her routine, and  

after some epic fails with a few bread recipes, I finally found this recipe courtesy of the Diet Doctor and it won me over big time!  

So far I’ve tried this recipe as cinnamon toast, a grilled cheese sandwich, panini’s, BLT’s, and sliders.  Next, I need to see if it will work as a bread crumb substitute in meatloaf.  


Something to keep in mind is there are a few different brands of psyllium husk powders out there and they can affect the color of your bread.  If you use Yerba Prima the inside of your bread will have a slight purple hue to it.  Now that isn’t wrong but sometimes for my photography, it might not be the look I’m going for so I use the Now brand.  

Because we eat bread frequently I like to double the recipe which gives me about 18 smaller size buns.

  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes



5 tbsp psyllium husk

1 ¼ cup almond flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup of water

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

½ cup liquid egg whites (or egg whites from 3 eggs)

2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl

Bring the cup of water to a boil

Add vinegar and egg whites to dry ingredients and combine well

Add boiling water and while liquidy beat with a hand mixer for 30 seconds (should resemble play doh)

Moisten hands with olive oil or coconut oil and shape into 6 rolls

Place on a greased baking sheet

Top with sesame seeds

Bake on the lower rack for 60 minutes


I find the rolls cut easier if you let them cool a bit.  

Another option, add some minced garlic and you can enjoy it as garlic bread.
