Hello friends! For our next culinary contradiction, I give you bread without carbs! Well, next to no carbs; just 4 net carbs per roll Though this recipe looks like some kind of devilry, this vegan keto bread tastes like heaven!
These plant-based low carb buns have a wonderful toasty aroma from oat fiber, ALA from golden flax seeds, plus lots of protein from vital wheat gluten. Plus they have that authentic yeasty flavour because they are made with the same process as traditional wheat bread.
I almost named titled this “It tastes like bread because it’s made from bread!” But only those who experienced the heyday of Splenda would get it.
But why vegan keto sandwich rolls at all?
For purely selfish reasons, of course! I have to stay keto in order to keep my chronic tendonitis symptoms away. But I still want to have homemade sandwich rolls occasionally! And if you have your own reasons for keeping it low carb, then I’m happy to help.
By the way, my inspiration for this recipe were the keto buns from my local Save-On-Foods bakery! They are great but expensive so I took the ingredient list, kept the stuff I could buy easily and skipped the ingredients that I couldn’t. Then it was months of adjusting ratios and the baking method until I came out with buns that were even more delicious than the original!
Please keep in mind that while I love to have these buns sometimes, they are still a highly processed food. And as mentioned in the video, please drink LOTS of water when indulging in food like this that isn’t water-rich while being very high in fiber.

IMPORTANT INGREDIENT NOTE: that I particularly like the Anthony’s brand of Vital Wheat Gluten. I find it has less of the gluten-y aroma compared to Bob’s Red Mill. Also, Anthony’s Oat Fiber has zero net carbs but other brands may have more. Please keep this in mind when sourcing ingredients.
Some people have inquired to the cost and based on the cost of ingredients in Canadian Dollars for me, each batch cost me $5.66, working out to 71 cents per roll. For me, this is about the same or a little more than the cost of regular store-bought rolls but significantly less than buying store-bought KETO rolls.
NUTRITION INFO (according to cronometer) per roll which is 1/8th of the total recipe:
3.7g net carbs (17.7g total carbohydrates, of which 14g is from fiber, 0.7g from sugar)
1% DV Calcium, 12% DV Iron
IS IT REALLY KETO?
There’s a lot of misinformation about what keto is or isn’t. Here’s a simple explanation. The keto diet helps the body get into ketosis (the state in which the body primarily is burning fat for fuel) and stay in that state with the minimization of net carbs. This bread can easily be a part of a balanced keto diet with its super low carb count.
I think the confusion is when some “gurus” on YouTube claim that their grain-free/lectin-free/legume-free/plant-free way is the only way to do keto right. Only YOU can tell what helps put your body in ketosis in a healthy way. NOT these strangers!
