Low-Carb Hot Dog Buns Ingredients
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup unflavored whey protein powder
- 2 tablespoons whole psyllium husk flakes
- 2 tablespoons golden flax seed meal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/4 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
Low-Carb Hot Dog Buns Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients
In a medium bowl, whisk or sift together dry ingredients. Sifting ingredients is preferred to get a finer texture.
Add eggs, melted butter and sour cream to dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
Form into hot dog buns
Wet your hands with some water or oil in order to handle the dough. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Grab a handful of dough, form it into an oblong hot dog shape and place on a parchment lined baking tray. Continue with remaining dough. You can form your desired size. I can make about 5 normal sized hot dog buns with this recipe. Evenly place dough balls on the tray spacing about 1 inch apart.
Bake the buns
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-13 minutes or until slightly hardened on the outside and spongy to the touch. Let cool for 3-5 minutes before slicing.
i don’t have flax seed meal – can I leave it out entirely or is there a sub for it? I have SO much keto stuff in the pantry, I don’t want to buy more unless I have to
I haven’t tried it without it so I’m not sure how it will turn out. If you make it without, let me know!
Annie, I just made these tonight. While I enjoyed the flavor and firmness of them, they broke apart once the hotdog was added and handled. The only substitute I did was the 1 tsp psyllium powder. You mention both baking powder and baking soda but I only see powder in the ingredient list. Could that be what is causing thrm to crumble? Maybe I should try the ice cubes?
Your nutrition facts listed – are they per bun, or for the whole recipe? I didn’t see any explanation on the whole page
It’s per bun
I don’t have unflavored protein powder, what can I substitute?
I haven’t experimented with any substitutes yet, unfortunately.
Can I sub or leave out the protein powder?
Unfortunately, I haven’t experimented with any other substitutes yet.
I don’t know what I did wrong. Mine did not rise much and they were hard. :/
Sometimes it might vary based on the ingredients, substitutions made or oven.
i have tried commercial keto buns bread and except unbuns they all spike my blood sugar…..sola hamburger bun my blood sugar went from 108 to 126
Just wanted to make sure if why protein is gluten free.
Check the bag or brand you are going to us. I believe Isopure is gluten free.
No rise. Should there be baking soda in this recipe? This was already asked but not answered.
No baking soda is needed. The baking powder helps to raise the dough by creating air bubbles the protein powder forms a stable protein matrix to hold the bubbles in place.
