Everybody loves burgers. Making this popular comfort food compatible with a keto diet starts with the buns. It took me several attempts to finally make a bun that is fluffy and tastes just like bread. Feel free to use any fillings to re-create your favourite burger recipe. I used a simple slaw to serve with mine.

Here are some of my favourite burger fillings:

  • ham & cheese
  • crunchy BLT
  • tuna with mayo and onion
  • slow-cooked meat with mayo / soured cream dressing
  • crispy bacon & avocado

Note: Due to the psyllium (high fibre content), make sure you drink plenty of water with these keto burger buns!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

What is the keto bread? Where can I find it? How many carbs?

It is listed in the "Serve with" option (see the link) - the nutrition facts include the bread buns. I hope this helps!

Hi, just starting Keto and this website is great !  Is it okay to make extra burgers, cook them, freeze them, then quickly reheat / recook in a frying pan ?  If yes - would you know how long they are okay in freezer (a couple of weeks ?)
Thanks again
Adam 😊

Hi Adam, yes I think that's fine - you can keep them frozen for up to 3 months 😊

Is the slaw inculded in the macros?

Yes it is (buns, meat + slaw) 😊

Does the carb / pro / fat count include the buns? I plan to make just the burgers alone.

Hi Martin, yes it does. Unless it says "Optional", it's included in the nutrition facts.

I always see Psyllium Husk in recipes. I never heard about it (before keto) and, after some online research, I think it will be very hard to find in Brazil. Is there any substitute?

Hi Bruno, I'm afraid there is no good substitute for psyllium husks / psyllium husk powder. Most low-carb "flours" (almond, coconut, etc.) can be substituted but not psyllium. I did some Google search and found a few suppliers in Brazil so I think you will be able to find some online 😊

Just made the buns & hamburgers for our dinner - everyone loved them and they were requested for dinner again tomorrow

Awesome!! 😊

"I thrive in cold, gray, rainy weather. Spring and summer are miserable for me. I have terrible allergies and absolutely hate being hot and sweaty. I get heat rashes and sun poisoning if I’m outside for too long thanks to super-sensitive skin. I’m miserable once it heats up outside and can’t wait for all of the rain fall brings with it. My husband is the same way, so we love the mountains and big cities for vacations—loathe the beach.
I can’t wait to try this recipe this weekend!"

Looks delicious! I made your keto bund with coleslaw and pulled pork (one of you suggestions in the app) and loved it! Love your app and all the work on your blog!! Please, keep up the good work - huge fan here! 😊

Thanks Sam! Yes, loving it with pulled pork too 😊

Never thought to put roasted tomatoes into a salad, but of course it goes so well with the roasted squash. I added roasted beets since I had some. Don’t have pine nuts; subbed pecans. For the dressing, I didn’t have orange/juice and the stores don’t yet have frozen or fresh cranberries, so I reconstituted dried with hot water. Made my own balsamic dressing with a bit of Dijon mustard. Added strips of grilled tempeh (I’m really not obsessed with protein, but just wanted to use it up).

Love your keto buns! Have to try this recipe. I've been following keto and your blog for more than a year and I'm loving all the effort you put in your app! Thanks for all your work 😊

Thank you Elena! New update is coming 😉
