Faux Bread Quest: Holy Grail! Almond Buns!!!

Faux Bread Quest: Holy Grail! Almond Buns!!!

Update: This recipe is now on the Caveman Keto YouTube Channel.  Check out how to make Almond Buns!

I’ve done it.  I’ve found the holy grail, the perfect bun. This has been a long journey.  First we tried Oopsies and we knew it was possible.  We tried peanut butter bread and we were closer. The minute muffin hinted that something better was possible.  The flax bun was really close.  I now present to you, the Almond Bun!

Almond BunHere is the finished product in breakfast sandwich form.  I took all of the feedback from the flax bun and made some improvements in the recipe.

Dry IngredientsMix all of the dry ingredients together.

Dry and wet ingredients on Almond BunAdd the wet ingredients and whisk.

Almond Buns ready to bake

Distribute the batter equally into the muffin top pan. This pan is one of  the secrets to making really good buns.  It makes sure that the buns are all of a very even and flat so that it is easy to use for breakfast sandwiches, burgers, etc.  If you just make 6 piles this size the edges will be weaker and the form of the bread will be closer to a cookie than a muffin and it will not hold.  The dough for this recipe is more dense so it takes some effort to spread it evenly.

Finished Almond BunsHere are the completed buns.  You want to cook them until the edges just start turning brown.  This will vary from oven to oven considering these are pretty flat.  I would keep an eye on them the first time and then remember the amount of time it takes.

Open Faced Almond Bun SandwichHere is the final product again, this time served as an open sandwich.


In the end, I think all of these different faux breads have different advantages and disadvantages. They are all useful to have in your cookbook.  The Almond Buns are my favorite in terms of taste and texture.  However, there are some advantages to the Flax Buns as well.  First, Almond Meal is expensive, coming in at around $9.63 per pound compared to Flax Meal at $3.61 per pound. Also, the almond buns come in at 373 calories and 4 net carbs per bun where the flax meal version was 251 calories and 1 net carb.  Both would be really healthy if used as an open sandwich.  Neither of these are too high for calorie intake or net carbs but I tried to minimize the calories in the flax buns because my wife was trying to stay under 400 calories for breakfast.  Personally, I would use these buns as a treat, maybe for weekend breakfasts or to bring to a restaurant as a bun replacement when eating out with friends.

Chicago Metallic Muffin Top Pan
Ahh, the muffin top pan. It took me weeks to find this beloved device but after I had it in my grasps, the most amazing thing happened, I created the Holy Grail Almond Buns! This is far and away the most popular recipe on the website. The curved yet right angled slop and flat bottom of this pan create the perfect keto bun.
Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour
Almond flour is the go to flour on keto. Its the base for stuff like almond buns and I use it as a filler anytime I want a flour substitute. I’d check your local grocery store first, but if you can’t find it locally, buy it online. By me, it varies between $8-$12 per lb.
EZ-Sweetz is liquid sucralose. In case you weren’t aware, powdered splenda contains carbs as binding agents to get it to look and act like sugar. If you’re making something like a chocolate mousse or a Low Carb Cheesecake, this stuff is perfect. I’ve never seen it in a store before so I stock up on it online. You can get liquid stevia or truvia at somewhere like Whole Paycheck but I like this stuff better.


  1. These look really quite nice! Only need to get a muffin top bun and i will be able to give it a try!

    Upvotes !:P

  2. Woah this weblog is great i love studying your articles. Keep up the great work! You know, lots of individuals are hunting round for this info, you could help them greatly.

  3. I just made these almond buns and they are the best low carb bread I have ever had. I love how buttery the buns are. They kind of remind me of biscuits. I like that you provided step by step pictures on how to do it otherwise I’d be doing it wrong like my flat oopsie bread. Thank you for the recipe.

  4. I just made these using generic store brand egg rings (I had a hard time finding a muffin top tray) and they came out perfect. They were quite thick, yet not too dense, did not crumble when held and most importantly they cooked evenly.

    To anyone using egg rings ensure you grease them well, you may need to wait until they’re cool then run a blunt knife around the edge to coax them loose.

    I may distribute the batter between 8 rings next time, opposed to 6, as the difference in thickness between your buns and mine (heh) is quite significant.

    Oh, almost forgot, I used a 60/40 ratio of almond meal/ flax meal but other than this I did not alter the recipe.

    Thank you for the recipe!

    • what did you think of the texture, flavor etc by adding the flax meal? I am thinking of doing the same thing….

      • I did a 50/50 mix of flax and almond meal, but otherwise did not modify the recipe. The almond buns with just almond meal were quite a bit like cornbread. Splitting the mix to 1/2 almond and 1/2 flax, it came out more like whole grain bread. I’ve also made the caveman keto flax buns and the 1/2 and 1/2 buns came out as a happy medium texture and flavor-wise. You only save 10 calories but you do gain some fiber. I think now I’d like to see experiment with swapping some of the butter for olive oil or just reduce the overall oil/butter content. Also interested in trying the 1/2 and 1/2 mix with less butter but add a hard grated cheese and some seasonings.

  5. These are the best bun-substitutes I have found, but they’re a bit too buttery for me. When I pick the buns up, they leave a sheen on my fingers! :P

    I’m all for fat, but the butter taste is a little too pronounced. Do you have any ideas for substitutions for at least some of the butter? I’m not very experienced experimenting with baking. Could you use more egg and some coconut milk or something to that effect?

    • You could use a mix of water and oil instead of butter. Or some combination of all three. The flax buns are made with just water and oil to reduce the calories, the same principle would also reduce the butteryness. Another thing is I always use unsalted butter, are you using regular?

      • Maybe I’ll experiment with all three :P I’m fine with some butter, I’ve just never been a huge fan of butter (I know, I’m super weird). Do you have suggestions for types of oil? I wonder if coconut oil would make it taste too coconutty. Olive oil?

        I used salted the first time I made them because I didn’t have unsalted butter (and reduced the salt). I bought unsalted afterwards just to make these again a couple times and it definitely improves the taste :)

        • I made the flax buns with coconut oil and they were delicious and not too coconutty, but they stuck to the pan a lot more than they did with butter, so be sure to grease the pan!

  6. I was a bit tired of Oopsies and didn’t find a good replacement for them so far. I am soooooo looking forward to try these almond buns as soon as my muffin form arrives. They look incredibly tasty!

  7. I made these with the exact directions but they seemed a bit salty for me. Next time I think I’ll leave out the salt.

    • Also if you used salted butter, try using unsalted butter!

    • I agree that they’re too salty and I did use unsalted butter. I will use 0.5 tsp of salt next time, which coincidentally matches the amount in Caveman_Keto’s flax bun recipe.

      Not complaining though, this is a fantastic recipe and I loved my cheeseburger.

      • I noticed that since yesterday, he has removed the salt from the base recipe. I used salt yesterday, and found it too salty, so today I reduced that to 0.5 TSP salt and added 0.5 TSP onion powder as a substitute. It definitely changed it up some, reduced the salt taste dramatically, and gave it a light oniony taste which was awesome for my breakfast muffin. I put bacon, cheese and egg on it.

  8. This recipe calls for WAY too much salt. Use 1/2 tsp instead.

    • Yeah, I think I should change it, the last couple times, I’ve omitted the salt entirely.

      • Could you change it in the recipe? I made it using the recipe last night without reading all the way down in the comments and they’re tasty but so salty I can’t eat them. Hoping to save the next person from making that mistake. Almond meal’s expensive. :)

  9. There was a post on reddit with a bun made out of pork rinds called Meat Bread. I think you should play around with it!

    Here it is: http://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/ss51v/recipe_meat_bread/

  10. Hi, I just made these – haven’t tried them yet, but they look quite different than yours. The batter was much wetter than yours is. I tried searching around r/keto and your comments to see if it addressed that and couldn’t find anything. I used Trader Joe’s Almond Meal, and I noticed mine looked a lot more… almond-piecey. Did you grind your meal up into a fine flour first? I didn’t see anything that said that, so I wasn’t sure. Thanks! :)

    • The Trader Joe’s almond meal I think is quite a bit coarser than Bob’s Red Mill. The Bob’s is already really small like flour. Maybe try Bob’s or grind in a seed mixer?

      • How did it taste with Trader Joe’s Almond Meal? It’ s A LOT cheaper than Bob’s, but it is much more corse.

        • The problem with Trader Joe’s is that it is a much coarser grain than with Bob’s. You could probably refine Trader Joe’s yourself in a food processor though.

          • Trader Joe’s almond flour is made from unblanched almonds, and is less finely ground. It’s a great product, but you should probably grind it up a little more and expect a darker end result (because of the almond skins.)

  11. I placed an order for a cast iron muffin top pan after seeing this, and I plan to make these very soon! Thank you for the idea.

  12. Discovered your site yesterday and these almond buns are now cooling on the counter! I have also been on a quest and made many faux breads. I can tell these are going to rock! Looking forward to making the stuffed bacon wrapped shrimp next. Also- if you order almond flour from Honeyville website (5 lb bag) it brings the price down to about $7 per pound. That is the cheapest I have found it. Thanks for your inspiring recipes!

  13. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe. My hubby is on the keto diet (mostly for weight loss) but my son is on the spectrum and therefore, like many, intolerant to gluten, casein, and so much more and trying to limit carbs as they feed the yeast in his bowels. So this recipe is just perfect for us! For a casein free and maybe lower calorie version, I use a mild tasting olive oil instead of the butter and they turn out great! Thanks again, can’t wait until tomorrow’s breakfast!

  14. I’m still waiting for my muffin top pan to come in – but I found one with 12 smaller “wells” at the local Wally – made my first batch to sample. Awesome!

    Gears are grinding now…I’m thinking cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract, a bit more sweetener to taste and voila! Faux snicker-doodles!

  15. I love these things but does anyone have trouble getting them in the muffin top tray? I find they’re so sticky I can’t use my hands because they stick to me rather than the tray, same with a spoon.

  16. I just whipped these up for the first time. I used a mini-muffin tray and got about 18 mini-biscuits. This is my first experience with fake bread so I can’t compare against anything else, but it’s delicious and satiated my craving for bread.

    Test successful, will go find a muffin top tray this week. Thanks!

  17. First–re. “buttery” substitute? If you really want them savory, why not use olive oil and even add garlic salt instead of regular salt? They’d be more “mediterranean” in that way. Secondly, virtually everything I’ve cooked using almond flour is too salty–I think salt is accentuated with that ingredient somehow and have learned to use less. Third, the “Bob’s Old Mill” Almond flour is great–and if you want it to stay that way, put what you do not use in a ziplock bag and keep it in the freezer–otherwise the natural oils in the almond flour will go rancid fairly quickly once exposed to air. I make my own almond flour with a VitaMix now, and remember–almond flour is heavier than wheat flour so making it FINE helps the eggs and baking powder lift it and make it light–otherwise it can wind up more “clay-like” in use, so yes, finer is better always, but its natural oils make it “clump” a bit so you have to mix it more thoroughly. That’s why so many of the recipes out there like the “oopsies” have you separate the eggs and fold in beaten egg whites separately (though with this recipe that isn’t necessary because oopsies don’t use baking powder which creates bubbles that give the bread its lift–they rely entirely on the egg white foam to do it.) IF you have never baked much before, the best way to think about baking is this: Cooking is art, but Baking is art by way of SCIENCE. The chemical reactions, the air mixture that gives breads and rolls their “crumb”, and all of the interactions of ingredients and proportions matter much more than in other cooking, and just “putting in a bit more” or less of something may have major results, good or bad. Thank people like this who’ve done the spadework for you, and when in doubt stick to the recipe.

    • Loads of good info – thanks! Will have to google Vita mix diy almond flour, we LOVE our VitaMix! I’m just worried that all the meat will 1- cause cancer or 2- give us high cholesterol :/

  18. LOL What ?!? :
    “Prep Time: 5 months, 5 minutes

    Cook Time: 15 months, 15 minutes

    Total Time: 20 months, 20 minutes”

    • Oh man, I thought I fixed that! Must be some sort of bug in the recipe SEO plugin I use. Hopefully yours only took 20 minutes :)

  19. Have you tried coconut flour for a bun like this? May be the next iteration for these? It’s cheaper than almond flour and should provide a good taste as well.

  20. I was looking for a substitute for the muffin top pans and found that you could use cleaned tuna cans. Just cut off the top and bottom with a can opener and place on a baking sheet and voila, you have rings. Never tried it and may not seem appetizing, but I’m sure it would work. Just a thought… ;)

    • How on earth do you cut the bottom of a tuna can off? Nowadays the cans have rounded bottoms that I can’t open with my can opener.

  21. About the expensive almond flour:

    If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, they sell a pound of almond flour for 4.99. They also sell almonds by the pound for 4.99 if you want to grind your own. My local TJ’s was out of the flour, so I made my own. It’s grainy but the buns come out great.

  22. I’ve been making these for about a month now and every single time I can not help but be amazed at how well they turn out. These are almost impossible to screw up. They are FAST to bake, and require very little effort to prepare. A fork, a whisk, and your ingredients. I made these for thanksgiving and they were a huge hit with my non-keto family! My grandfather, who is over 80 years old, asked me for the recipe so he could make it himself. It’s very rare I can convince him to try something new. My only suggestion, as someone else said, is to try to come up with a coconut flour bun! (So I can use my 2lbs of it!) Thanks so much CMK!

  23. I was about to complain about how bitter these were when I re-read the recipe and noticed I mistakenly used baking soda instead of powder.

    Rookie mistake.

    I’ll give this another shot tomorrow.

  24. Ok, made these for the first time tonight! Went great with our meal of keto friendly chicken fried steak, gravy, and green beans, as a side. I’m so inspired now! Can’t wait to play around with these. May try them in a muffin tin to make more of a roll? Maybe adding some garlic powder, etc. to make them more savory. Also, thinking about adding a little cream to the batter thin it out, add some cinnamon and sweetener and make pancakes! Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!

  25. I don’t have access to a muffin top pan, would you say that the batter is thick enough to be portioned out and shaped by hand? I don’t mind them being a little mishapen, more concerned with the batter running.

    • I actually decided to give it a shot anyhow, I added a little more almond meal to make it a little stiffer so that I could heap it on to a baking sheet with a ladle. It came out great! It’s a little crumbier than I’d like, but I am using homemade almond meal rather than storebought flour (it’s crazy pricey in Toronto, if you can even find it) so that probably accounts for it.

      I wanted to test out the flavour so I made a little sandwich out of one bun cut in half, with just some cheddar and spinach, and it’s fantastic. Definitely gonna have to make some more.

  26. I bought a muffin top pan just to make this recipe!

  27. I made this in a pie pan and it reminded me a lot of corn bread. It was very tasty.

  28. Made breakfast sandwiches with these if you use the muffin top pan and scramble 4 eggs with sausage crumbles you make perfectly sized egg and sausage patties just thrown them in 350 for 12 minutes top with a slice of cheddar and you’re good to go, Make sure you grease the pan.

  29. I made this recipe this weekend, one thing I noticed is that my ‘batter’ was not anywhere near as thick as what you have pictured. Mine was basically a liquid that poured into the pan, whereas yours (and what I’ve read in some other comments) is more like a cookie dough. Any idea what I could have done wrong? My only thought is that 5 TBsp of butter seems like way too much maybe? Either that or my TBsp is way too big? lol

    • Mine are in the oven as I type this (Feb. 16, 2013) and I had the same experience, i.e. my batter was more of a batter (think “Pancakes”) instead of a thicker dough (such as gluten-free bread mix).

      I believe I should have mixed the wet ingredients into the dry, then let the batter sit for, say, 15 minutes.

      • For anyone else searching through this like I did. I had the same runny/thin/liquid batter and they turned out perfectly fine so don’t worry.

        • Oh, phew! Yeah, mine are totally liquidy. I thought I’d mixed up tsps and tbsps with the batter, but nope! Might be a location difference, maybe our tablespoons are bigger in the UK…

  30. This recipe is brilliant! I doubled it and made six larger buns which I then sliced horizontally through to make each burger. The only thing I didn’t double was the butter – I used 4 tbspns butter and 2 tbspns coconut oil instead and the flavour was delicious. I didn’t have any muffin pans so I used individual pie tins instead – worked a treat!

  31. I just made these, but after reading some of the comments used 4tbsp butter and 1tbsp water, they are GREAT, really excited to have found your page, thank you!

  32. Thanks, this was great! Tasted a lot like cornbread. I used Stevia In The Raw instead of Splenda.

  33. OMG we need a PRINT function for this stuff!!!! can you add it to your list of little icons with “share/FB/pinterest/etc”??

  34. To throw another post on the pile: I made these as stated and they are very good. A touch flaky, like cornbread, but still delicious. Thanks for posting it!

  35. Just made these and they’re awesome! Used a tsp of truvia and baked in a silicone muffin mold. Turned out golden and yummy – kids love them too. Just need to triple the recipe next time. :D

  36. I’m about to give these a go. Cheeseburgers maybe? Have you ever tried “Farinata?” I made pizza last night and used Farinata as the crust. It was excellent! Farinata is so easy and delicious! I’m just getting started with keto and wondering your thoughts on Farinata. It’s made with garbanzo flour. I’d like to know if it meets keto requirements. I tried to paste the Nutrition Facts here but it went nuts. http://www.bobsredmill.com/garbanzo-bean-flour.html. Thanks!

  37. Did them on parchment paper, and they came out great. I did add a quarter cup of extra flour (1cup total in reference to this recipe) to thicken them up because of the lack of a muffin pan on my part.

  38. Great recipe! I buy my almond flour (as well as most of my food) from Azure Standard. It’s roughly $4.50 per pound. Very good stuff. Check out their website to see if they have a drop in your area. I get my coconut flour through them too for roughly the same price.

    If you don’t have Azure Standard where you live, Honeyville Grains has almond flour for roughly $7/lb after shipping. They have discount codes all the time if you sign up for their emails.

  39. Possibly stupid question regarding the nutrition information: is it 7G carbs per muffin, or for the whole recipe?


  40. Hey Caveman, first I love your blog and the recipes you create are awesome.
    I had a thought about the carb count and cost comparison of the flax vs almond buns. Have you tried using a mix of the two products to produce an almond/flax hybrid?
    Anyways thanks for the blog again, and keto on!

  41. Hopefully this helps someone–Here in Utah (~4800′ elevation) it took 25 minutes in the gas oven @ 350.

  42. I made this and my base mixture before cooking seemed a little dryer than it looks in the picture, why would that be? I used 6Tbsp of butter instead of 5Tbsp also. Having said that they came out delicious!

    • Hmm, it could be the size of the eggs or the type of almond flour. If your eggs have less volume then that could be the issue!

  43. I love your recipes!. I tried to sign up for your newsletter, but nothing happen. Will you please sign me up.

  44. Just a quick question. I noticed that on the bag of Almond Flour at the store’s site says that it’s 6carbs/serving with each serving being 1/4 cup. This recipe calls for 3/4 cup (3 servings). How is it possible for the total carb count to be at only 7?

    • ..Stupid question.. I need to refrain from communicating past 2am..

      If anyone else makes this silly mistake, it’s because the carb count is for the serving size, not the whole recipe.

  45. Much sturdier than oopsies. Thanks yet again.

  46. I’ve made these several times and absolutely love them! Tonight, I decided to add 6 strips of crispy bacon, 6 tablespoons of cheddar and two diced green onions before I baked them. They are the perfect little breakfast muffins for when I get tired of eggs. Caveman, thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes!!

  47. Mine turned out amazing: http://bit.ly/18QYi9S I love you cavemanketo. This is my new favorite keto site!

  48. Amazing! Taste just like corn bread. I can not wait to eat this with chili.

  49. I double this recipe and use almond meal to make an almond bread loaf and then fry as one would make french toast and it is absolutely amazing and full of flavor! Thank you for sharing this!!

  50. Just made these! I used half butter half coconut oil (because I had fat bombs in freexer) and made them in a yorkshire pudding tray.
    I got 4 large ones.
    I actually asked for the tray for my xmas present!!

    Thanks SO much for this recipe.

    I’m just wondering how to store the left overs

    Freeze? In an air tight container or a paper bag in the bin?

    • yay! I just picked up a Yorkshire pudding tray @ Marshall’s today to use for a almond flour biscuit, I was hoping I could use it for this recipe as well, so glad they didn’t turn out too big!

  51. I didn’t have any almond flour, so tried this with soy flour. Tasted the batter (blech), but made them anyway and figured I would give the result to the dog. Cooked in my Hamilton Beach Sandwich maker. The first one was undercooked, and the dog was glad to get it. The 2nd one I left for 5 minutes, and it came out perfect. Tasted with trepidation, but to my surprise it was wonderful! Both flavor and texture were great — added some cream cheese and could only finish the one (very very full!).

    I only got 3 out of the batch, and the batter needed to be spread rather than poured, but I will experiment some more with it!

    Thanks for finally giving me a bread substitute that is tasty!

  52. I am blown away by how easy and satisfying these are. I’m not a wizard in the kitchen by any means, but these came out goldeny delicious and completely satisfied my cravings for something kind of bread/biscuit-y on my first try. I also like that they’re insanely fast to prepare. I can’t wait to make a breakfast sandwich with one of these buns, a couple over-easy eggs, bacon, and some aged cheddar cheese tomorrow morning. YES!!!!

  53. Thanks for the recipe and to everyone for the instructions in the comments. These are delicious and really look like buns too. Best of all, they held my sloppy joe and coleslaw without falling apart. So, for the next reader, I’ll give some tips… I didn’t have the muffin top pan. I used 2-cup ramekins. First time around I greased them well but the buns were hard to remove and I lost one of them to crumbs. Second time I still greased the ramekins but also put a round of parchment paper on the bottom. Perfect! I also did use Trader Joe’s almond meal but followed the advice to grind it more finely first. I subbed some refined coconut oil for part of the butter. Thanks again!

  54. I was wondering if you think these would work as hotdog buns if you baked them in a square and folded them around the dog? Are they flexible enough? I have yet to try…

  55. I finally got around to trying these, and I really like them! I went ahead and used salted butter an no added salt, and that was fine for me, but I think it’s just a matter of personal taste. In my second and third batches (because, yes, they are so good I keep making more!), I have come to completely omit any sweetener and reduced the baking powder to 1 tsp so they wouldn’t puff up as much in the middle. I use Bob’s Red Mill almond meal/flour, and my batter is much thinner than in the photos here, but I bake mine at 350 for 14 minutes, and they are perfect!

  56. Just made these tonight for the first time. They are AMAZING! Tasty and perfect as an open face sandwich with some bacon and a runny egg on top!

  57. I’ve been missing bread lately, and had bought almond and coconut flour but didn’t know where to start. As soon as I found your recipe yesterday, I made these and they’re lovely! They remind me of my “fat” cornbread (fat as in butter, or bacon grease, or duck fat to be fancy) that I’ve not made for 6 months since starting to eat LCHF. These really hit the spot, and fulfilled my most important qualification, that they are not just “faux” but tasty all on their ownsome.

    I made these with salted butter and without sweetener, and my brain’s dancing with possible future variations. Probably because of the butter, they were just as tender and good today as they were yesterday. Thank you and bless you for your ingenuity!

  58. THANK YOU Cavemenketo! I just made these for the 1st time, right now, and I used 4TB butter and 1TB expeller pressed organic coconut oil (Jarrow Brand which does NOT taste like coconut) – and they turned out great! I used them for open face breakfast sandwiches and I used crispy bacon as the “top bun”. I’m not a big fan of eggs so I split 1 egg between 2 sandwiches and it was so good. My husband is not doing keto, but he loved the sandwich I make him as well, however I used 2 buns for his sandwich and he asked me to put a little maple syrup on the bottom bun. He was raving about it.
    NOTE: There is a big difference between almond meal and almond flour. This recipe calls for almond FLOUR.

  59. For the Almond Buns, would a 50/50 mixture of flax seeds & almond flour/meal work, or would a mixture of 75/25 work better (25% being the flax meal)? This is just a suggestion for those that feel 100% almond flour is too much.

  60. I just made these and love them. How is the best way to store them for a week.


  61. Hi! I made these tonight, and although they turned out fairly alright, there’s a slight bitter aftertaste. Is that just the almond flour? It’s the first time I’ve used it. What could I have done wrong? Thank you!

  62. Love this recipe, Thanks,Caveman. I like the Splenda in the recipe. I do, however, add a large pinch of salt. I sometimes add chopped jalapeños and shredded cheese. Delish.

    I also start with melted oil of choice, and then beat in room temp eggs. Next, I beat in combined dry ingredients. This eliminates scary lumpy stage.

    Sometimes, instead of baking in muffin top pan, I fry on a hot griddle and make Johnny cakes. I bet you could probably pour them into a waffle iron. That’s my next experiment.


  63. Thank you so much for this recipe, the well written directions, and the great photos. I used a 80/20 mix of almond flour and flax meal, 3 egg whites, and 4 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil and these came out terrific. (I also used 1/2 ts of stevia.) I could gobble them down straight out of the oven. I haven’t had a good hamburger since I started my low carb diet and now they are going back on the menu!!! Thank you for the time you put into this and for sharing, it is greatly appreciated!

  64. Found your recipe in the nick of time as my boyfriend and I both woke up jonesing for “something on a bun.” The only change I made was out of necessity – I used almond meal since that’s what I had on hand. Perhaps it was due to this change, but the texture was a bit like cornbread, which was the perfect compliment to our melted ham and cheese sandwiches. This one’s definitely a keeper!

  65. Are these safe to leave out, or would you say to refrigerate them?

  66. I like to split one muffin in half instead of using two. This way I don’t have to have an open faced sandwich.

    One muffing sliced around the perimeter holds together nicely. The muffin pan leaves an impression around the outer edge of the muffin. I use this to score it with a butter knife and then slowly slice it in half.

  67. I used 4 Mason jar rings, well greased, to hold these as they baked instead of using the muffin top pan. I placed the Mason jar rings on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and baked for 15 minutes at 350.
    They turned out AWESOME and 4 seemed to be perfect – that size allowed me to cut each one in half to make a sandwich.

  68. Used these as a garlic cheese bread by toasting in a pan, and sprinkling with garlic salt and havarti. Winner. Took the last one, and used it as a ‘shortcake base’, and topped with a bit of french vanilla whipped cream, and a couple fresh blackberries. Evrn bigger win. Thank you!! Any idea how long they keep if making a double batch?

  69. These tasted like a delicate cornbread but sturdy enough to hold a sandwich together, even when cut in half. I made a few modifications to suit what I had on hand and my personal preferences:

    Used Trader Joe’s almond meal (the batter looked a little runny, so I added an extra 1/4 c of meal)
    Used 4 T of oil and 1 T of water (like some posters who didn’t want an overly buttery flavor or oily residue)
    I had a weird Wilton cookie pop pan that had only 4 divets, so I made 4 larger buns instead of 6. It was the perfect size to slice in half for a breakfast sandwich!

    BRAVO! 5 STARS! A+! Thank you so much for this recipe :)

  70. thanks for the recipe. they were very tasty and kinda sweet… i think i will use with stevia chocolate chips and make big cookies :).
