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. Please note that the sunflower flour gives the bread a green colour.

  • 180 g butter melted or 160 g coconut oil melted plus 20 g water
  • 280 g 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 egg white 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.
