Keto Protein Bread for Carnivore and BBBE

Keto Protein Bread is adapted from the famous Egg White Bread (Maria Emmerich recipe) but it is higher in fat and has a secret ingredient  giving it a soft and fluffy texture.

What’s more this version of the bread is perfect for Carnivore as well as BBBE (Beef Butter Bacon and Egg protocol) because it contains only animal ingredients.

The response to this bread has been phenomenal!  Be sure to watch it on the video for best results.  If you don’t have a stand mixer, don’t worry it will work with a hand held electric mixer!

How to Make Keto Protein Buns

My favorite way to use this recipe to make buns is to use either the silicone mesh bun pans for burgers and sandwiches or for hot dogs use the silicone mesh baguette pans.

The little holes in the bottom ensure you get a crust both at the top and bottom of the bun! For best results, place the bun pans on a rack and then on a baking sheet. I do find that I also need to spray the bun pans.

However you have to be sure to not overbake them or the buns will be hard and dry.  Every oven is different so you might have to test your oven.

In my oven I bake them for 15 minutes at 325, then brush the tops with an egg wash, then bake another 10 minutes, then I take them out.

UPDATED BBBE Buns (September 20, 2022)

You can take this bread or these buns to a whole new level thanks to a technique that I have been calling Indigo Nili’s Frozen Butter Trick! Grate 1/2 stick of frozen butter and put it in the bowl on low speed at the very end of mixing the batter. To see how I did it, watch my latest BBBE Bun video here!

This soft and fluffy Keto Protein Bread is perfect for sandwiches, french toast and dippy eggs! Only 1.2 total carbs per 2 slices!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 Egg Whites
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 42 grams (1.5 oz) Egg White Powder
  • 30 grams Beef Bone Broth Powder (or 22 grams Beef Keto Chow) or 2 tbsp beef gelatin or 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen
  • 1/4 tsp Redmonds salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar (only needed if high humidity keeps egg whites from getting stiff)
  • Optional: 1/2 stick frozen butter, grated
  • 1 Egg beaten (reserved)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Separate 6 egg whites into a mixing bowl, keep 3 yolks for later in the recipe and save 3 yolks for something else!
  3. Add salt, egg white powder and bone broth powder into mixing bowl. Mix on high for 3 to 5 minutes until mixture has stiff peaks.
  4. Turn mixer down to lowest speed and add 3 egg yolks one at a time, allowing a couple spins for each one to become incorporated into mixture.
  5. If using the frozen grated butter, dump that into the bowl while the mixer is on lowest speed. Stir until combined.
  6. Press mixture into a silicone loaf pan (8 x 4). If using glass or metal pan be sure to line with parchment paper.
  7. If making buns use a mesh bun pan on a rack on a large baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes for buns or 25 minutes for bread. Remove from oven and brush top with egg wash and sprinkle with Redmonds seasoning salt.
  9. Bake for an additional 10 minutes for buns and 5-10 minutes for bread.
  10. Turn oven off and leave in oven for an additional 15-20 minutes for bread, but do not leave in for Buns.
  11. Allow to cool completely then remove from pan and slice in 12 slices.
  12. Enjoy!

Notes

NOTE 1: If using Keto Chow or any other protein powder that contains fat, be sure to add it in when adding in the egg yolks at the end. The fat could cause your batter to collapse.

NOTE 2: You can also add 1 tbsp beef gelatin for even softer fluffier bread!

NOTE 3: To make buns, bake at 325 for approximately 15 minutes, brush with egg wash and then bake another 10 minutes, then remove from oven.

NOTE 4: adding frozen grated butter takes these buns to a whole new texture! This idea came from Indigo Nili's Youtube Channel!

  1. Hi, is the egg white powder also egg white protein powder?
    I have seen both, so then I wasn’t sure. and what brand is your go to?

    1. Yes, they are one and the same thing! There is normally only egg white powder and sometimes lecithin as an ingredient and that’s it. I used to get the NOW Brand in the big orange can from iherb but now they won’t ship that one to Canada anymore so honestly my go to is what I can buy and not pay a small fortune!

  2. Please help me convert 42 grams (1.5 oz) Egg White Powder to Tablespoons ! Thank you, i have no gram or ounce scale.

  3. I love this version of the bread. Thanks for all your hard work in developing it. I am kind of looking for a sweet version of the bread. Wondered if you had used any of the sweet versions of the Keto Chow instead of the beef bone broth, and how it came out and if you had to make any other alterations.

    1. I haven’t yet and I’m just finishing up a sweets free month! I think I’ll try it out once September arrives. I’ve used the savory flavors but haven’t tried this yet! I would imagine that it might need a little extra sweetener and maybe some flavor enhancement depending on what you are going for.

  4. HI there; from Comox BC!
    Before I mess up, I have a question on the dry ingredients. In your youtube videos you use a combo of beef gelitin and beef bone broth powder. In the recipe above it has them listed as OR’s.
    ’30 grams Beef Bone Broth Powder (or 22 grams Beef Keto Chow) or 2 tbsp beef gelatin or 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen’

    Should I do all of them or just one of them or two of them or?
    thx

    1. Hi Connie from Comox! I do a lot of experimenting on youtube! I most often here at home use the 30 grams of bone broth powder. Sometimes I put in collagen OR gelatin. The bone broth powder is a must, the others are options to play with the texture.

    Amazing! I’ve disliked most egg white bread recipes I’ve tried. I was going to give up (and feel guilty about all of the ingredients I’ve purchased for the various breads). This recipe was so simple, and I am doing BBBE, so I decided to give it a try (before throwing in the towel once and for all. ). They came out great!! I really enjoyed them (I made buns in mesh pan and sprinkled Maldon’s sea salt flakes on top after the egg wash). I ate them all over the next few days, including making sandwiches, and the egg salad triple decker from your channel (open faced since it was my last bun). Will make another ther batch of buns today. So simple. Thank you.

    1. I am so happy to hear this! I was growing tired of the all egg white breads, some having as many as 15 ingredients on the list! This one is also 100% BBBE compliant so bonus! THanks for trying it and letting me know! Oh and the egg salad sandwich? This morning I fried the bread pieces in a pan with butter and wow that was so good!

  6. I have just found you! So happy to have Instructions and tips from someone. Very excited to try this bread. I need to round up the ingredients. I’m a little leary about them. I’m afraid I won’t like them and then I’ve spent all this money on these products. Wish there was a place to sample some of these foods. Wouldnt that be great? I tried to go keto in the past and fell off of it. Didn’t like many of the things I tried. But I’m more determined this time. Crossings fingers. Thanks so much for your videos! Really liked the ones I’ve watched. :)

    1. awww, I know how you feel. The first time I tried the egg white protein breads they were so dry like styrofoam and I was tempted to just throw out the bag. WHich was $42 here in Canada for a 1 lb bag! I’m glad I kept plugging away and figured out this version of the buns and bread because I think they are so good!
      Just know that they won’t taste like your favorite breads and buns but they taste good they just are different and with this you can have a hot dog, you can have a hamburger on a bun and you can make a soft crust pizza! And I’ve even used it for pie crusts. So to me they are worth it!

  7. Made buns tonight. First time using this recipe. Used a scoop and made them like the “Hawaiian Rolls” that are s popular. Brushed with butter instead of egg. They were great. I wanted to eat them all. Thanks Anita for all you do. Love your videos, recipes and dogs.

    1. Yeah I do love those Hawaiian Rolls too! Trying to keep my ingredients plain these days though. Glad you like the buns!

      1. The limited ingredients is what I like about this recipe. No fuss and so much cleaner. I just don’t have a mesh pan yet. So I tried using the scoop.
        Thanks again for all your hard work.

    1. It is the egg white powder that gives it structure, it sort of acts like the ‘flour’. Try using google to find a keto bread that uses lupin flour or some other low carb flour. I cannot use those flours so that is why I use the egg white powder.

      1. Would whey protein work (in place of the egg white powder)? I know it isn’t ideal, but I already have 7lbs of it. I know Maria’s original angel cake recipe uses it.

        1. I am not 100% sure it will work with this particular recipe but if you have 7lbs of it, it could be worth a shot to try it. I AM working on another simple bun recipe like this that does use whey instead of the egg white powder, so keep a watch for that one coming soon!

    1. Sorry for the delay in answering but the information you seek is right at the bottom of the recipe card! Amount Per Serving: CALORIES: 54TOTAL FAT: 2.1gCARBOHYDRATES: 0.6gNET CARBOHYDRATES: 0.6gFIBER: 0gPROTEIN: 7.6g

    1. It’s one of the options. This is from the list of ingredients: Beef Bone Broth Powder (or Beef Keto Chow) or Beef Gelatin or Beef Collagen.
      So use any one of those 4 items!

  8. Feel so lucky to have found your recipe, in the UK we do not have allulose, also its production is not very environmentally freindly. Thank you.

  9. May I ask the measured amount that is in one scoop of collagen? I watched the video of you making the egg white poke cake today, and you used a scoop of collagen there too, but I can’t estimate how much that would be using tablespoons, and I have a different brand of collagen that I would like to use if possible.
    Thanks for your help, and I hope that you have a stress free move!

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    1. In this case, the collagen used was Vital Proteins and the scoop equates to 10 grams and was very close to 1 tbsp so I think for this recipe the scoop can be interchanged with tbsp. For the Poke cake, I’m pretty sure it was also the same but I don’t have that can anymore as I used it up. The collagen’s only purpose is to soften the end result and so it’s ok if it’s not exact! I hope that helps!

  10. I have tried several versions of this bread. Why do I continue to have a problem with the inside consistency of the bread? It almost feels wet? I followed this recipe today and I toasted it to overcome the wetness. It was then so very dry. I so want to find a way to make protein keto bread that is good!

    1. If it’s too wet that could mean that it just needs a few more minutes baking. Don’t forget that we all have different ovens and even the pans can make a difference. They all conduct heat differently. I hope you find that sweet spot!

  11. As a fellow Canadian, I appreciate the Keto Chow alternative. After buying the egg white powder, the egg yolk powder, and the Alluose , to have to buy another product is disheartening. I love your recipes, thanks for all your work and experimentation. Happy house hunting!

    1. Marie Blomberg

      I’ve tried this recipe twice. After beating with electric beaters for 15 minutes my egg white was still only slightly thickened!! What’s the problem??

      1. You probably know most, if not all of these, but I wanted to cover all bases: if you live in a humid place like me, make this recipe on a day with lower humidity (i.e. no rain, preferably sunny) and keep the temp in your kitchen a little cooler. Don’t forget to add some cream of tartar to the egg whites. Make sure the mixing bowl is completely dry and NO part of the yolk got in. Also, I place my eggs in a bowl of warm water to quickly bring them to room temperature before mixing. Hopefully you find success! I know how frustrating it can be! My mom lives in Florida and neither one of us has been able to successfully whip egg whites in Florida:(

  12. I made it using 2 T of pork gelatin in place of the bone broth powder. I did not use cream of tartar. It worked perfectly, and is soft! Loving this version, Anita!

  13. OMG!!! Finally! An egg white bread that I didn’t choke on. And it didn’t turn to sawdust in my mouth either. This is it – this is the ONE!

    I used 3 eggs – separated and then made up the difference with carton egg whites – about 3/4 cup. Let them come close to room temp (around 60F). I also used the 22g of Keto Chow Beef soup plus a TBS of gelatin but I added these at the end after the egg whites (plus egg white powder & salt) and then lastly added the egg yolks one at a time. I added the butter during the baking as well.

    1. I really love this bread and have made it several times now with a few variations. You are making it exactly the same way as I’ve been doing it (with the tbsp gelatin and using 3 fresh eggs plus carton eggwhites!) I made this recipe for BBBE but I will use it for everything now!
