Sunflower seed bread or buns

My main objection with keto breads, has always been that they are too cake-y. This one tastes like bread. It’s not wet, not hard but keeps its form and is soft inside with no moisture. Tastes like whole meal bread. {lease note that the sunflower flour gives the bread a green colour.

  • 180 gr butter melted or 160 gr coconut oil melted plus 20 gr water
  • 280 gr eggs
  • 160 g sunflower flour ground seeds to flour - pulse in a kitchen blender-type machine or coffee grinder)
  • 40 g sunflower seeds whole
  • 60 g psyllium husk powder
  • 40 g flaxseed flour
  • 16 g baking powder
  • 55 g water
  • 5 g salt

For outside

  • 1 eggwhite
  • 15 g sunflower seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 170oC.

  2. Place everything in a bowl (except the yolk and 15gr seeds), and stir well with a spoon. 

  3. Form into a loaf (it will be easy to do so by hand as it keeps its form). Brush with the yolk and sprinkle with the seeds. 

    Alternatively, place the dough in a bread tin or form 9-10 buns.

  4. Bake for 35 mins for a loaf, whether on parchment paper or in a bread tin. 

    Reduce baking time to 20 mins if you have made the 9-10 buns.

  5. This recipe makes one loaf, or 9-10 buns. If you wish to make sandwiches with it , baking the dough in a bread tin, will yield a better slice size for doing so.
