Recipe by Anna SmallingCourse: Keto, Side Dish


Prep time


Cooking time






  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey, to feed the yeast

  • 120 ml water lukewarm, between 105-110°F

  • 168 g almond flour

  • 83 g golden flaxseed meal, finely ground

  • 15 g whey protein isolate

  • 18 g psyllium husk, finely ground

  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 egg at room temperature

  • 3 egg whites, at room temperature

  • 56 g grass-fed butter or ghee, melted and cooled

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 58 g sour cream or coconut cream + 2 tsp apple cider vinegar, at room temperature


  • Line a baking tray with a baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine yeast and maple syrup. Pour water over yeast mixture; stir to well combined. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 7 minutes.
  • In another bowl, add almond flour, flaxseed meal, whey protein powder, psyllium husk, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar and ginger. Whisk until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
  • Once your yeast is proofed, add in egg, egg whites, lightly cooled melted butter and vinegar. Mix with an electric mixer for a couple minutes until light and frothy.
  • Add the flour mixture in two batches, alternating with sour cream, and mixing until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Divide dough into 6-8, shaping them into rounds using lightly wet hands. Cover with lightly oiled cling film (saran wrap), cover with a kitchen towel and place in a warm draft-free space for 40-60 minutes until the buns have substantially increased in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C while the dough is proofing. Once the dough is ready, bake for 25-30 minutes until deep golden, covering with a lose foil dome at minute 10-15 (just as it begins to brown).
  • Remove and let it cool for 15-20 minutes before serving.


  • For the leftovers, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days and toast them lightly before serving. Stuff with favorite steak. Enjoy!
