Keto buns, except for being very tasty, are extremely quick and easy to make. You don't need to be able to knead or wait for them to rise several times.
The buns are also suitable for consumption by people who are on the recently known keto diet. It is a very low-carb, high-fat diet.
The main ingredients of these healthy buns are almond flour, whites and husk.
Almond flour is gluten -free flour and is finely ground almonds – you can buy ready-made or grind almonds yourself. Even if they are not finely ground, they make great buns.
Husk is husks extracted from the white plantain plant. It is mainly composed of fiber and has a beneficial effect on the digestive system. It is often used in similar gluten-free baked goods as it is the binding ingredient that holds the dough together.
Here is the recipe.
- 140 g almond flour
- 3 tbsp. (12 g) husk
- 3 whites
- 1 1/2 tsp (5 g) baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp savory
- 1 tsp vinegar
- For sprinkling: salt, sunflower, chia or other nuts/seeds as desired
Method of preparation:
Mix the dry ingredients - almond flour, husk, baking powder, salt, and savory. Mix them and add vinegar and egg whites. Leave the mixture for 5-10 minutes, then shape the buns with wet hands (this way you can make them much easier and faster).
Mix in a bowl salt, chia, sunflower, or nuts/seeds to use. Roll the balls in your mix and arrange them in a tray covered with baking paper. Squeeze the balls lightly with your fingers. I made 4 buns.
Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 175 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes or until done.
Once they are ready, you can grease them with oil and sprinkle them with Bulgarian colorful salt /dried savoury, paprika, and salt/.
