  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Combine the almond flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, egg white protein powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • In another bowl combine 1 egg with apple cider vinegar, cream cheese and warm water. Whisky until frothy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and combine using a wooden spoon or spatula until well combined and doughy.
  • Form the dough with your hands into a ball and then divide into 4
  • Form into a ball and then flatten with your hands to shape into a hamburger bun. About ¾ inch thick.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the 1 egg with the 1 tablespoon of water
  • Brush the egg wash onto each bun and top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds
  • Using a sharp knife score a cross into the top of the buns. Do not score too deep. This will help the buns rise a bit.
  • Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden. Do not over bake.
  • Allow to completely cool before slicing into the buns.

Don't overbake the buns as they will be too crusty. You want to remove them from the oven once they are lightly golden. Do not slice into them until they are completely cooled.
