I hope everyone had a great weekend. If you are like me, you probably ate way too much this week. On Saturday alone, I had about a dozen meals, eating my way through San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. So now, I’m looking for something a littler lighter. Enter these low carb bread buns. You can use them for burgers or for sandwiches. I filled mine with avocado slices and a fried egg.

I’ve been experimenting a lot with low carb bread options lately and will hopefully be sharing my favorites with you. This one is a very easy one, with just a few ingredients. It really does resemble regular bread when it’s finished baking. It’s light and fluffy, though of course, it does not taste exactly the same as regular bread. But for those looking for a lighter substitute, I think these work out quite nicely.

These remind me a little bit of some low carb cloud breads I made a few years ago. However, these are much easier to make and you can eat them as soon as they are finished.

Recipe now updated with video! You can also find all my recipes on my youtube channel.

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • large egg
  • 1 tbsp low fat milk
  • 1 tbsp almond flour lightly packed
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour lightly packed
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp white sesame seeds optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.  In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients except sesame seeds. Stir with a small whisk until thoroughly combined and smooth.
  • Lightly grease a 4-inch ramekin. Pour batter into a ramekin. If the surface is uneven, smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle sesame seeds across the surface.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the surface of the bread springs back when touched rather than sinking in. Mine was done at around 17-18 minutes. Let bread cool slightly. Use a spatula to loosen the bread from the sides of the ramekin. Slice bread bun in half and fill with ingredients of your choice.

  1. This looks AMAZING! I’d like to try it, but I’m very allergic to coconut (like go to the ER allergic). What can be substituted for the coconut flour? I can’t wait to try these! Can you use them with damp foods like hamburgers? 🙂 I’m all for anything that is easier than cloud bread! BTW, thank you for providing videos along with the recipe! It’s a great help!

  2. Can I substitute HWC for milk?

  3. Love this! Put trader joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning on top instead of seasame seeds…delish!
