In search of the ultimate keto cheese bread recipe? Look no further, because these keto cheese buns with rosemary will leave you speechless! I am actually not sure whether to call them breads, cookies, or buns. They seem to be a combination of all three. Most importantly is that they are super crispy, easy to prepare, and taste especially delicious fresh out of the oven with some melted butter and extra herbs. Hmmm… definitely the ultimate keto buns ;)

Tip to save time: do you have a busy week ahead? Prepare this recipe in larger amounts, and eat those breads / cookies / buns for lunch! But don’t forget to add some veggies, see the ingredient list below

Recipe for 4 medium to large sizes keto cheese breads / cookies / buns


For the Dutchies amongst us: of some products you can find a link to Body & Fitshop, where you can buy the product!

  • 300 grams shredded (mozzarella) cheese

  • 100 grams cream cheese

  • 2 eggs

  • 70 grams white almond flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • Herbs to taste: rosemary or other Italian herbs, garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Note: if you decide to eat this recipe for lunch, add 200 grams of shredded zucchini during step 6 to make sure you’ll be consuming enough veggies!

How to bake these buns

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.

  2. Warm up the cream cheese until softened.

  3. Mix the shredded mozzarella, and cream cheese in a large bowl.

  4. Separate egg yolks from egg whites, and beat the egg whites with a whisk until stiff.

  5. Add the egg whites to the mozzarella-cream cheese mix, followed by one egg yolk.

  6. Then, add the almond flour and baking powder plus herbs to taste and mix everything altogether until a smooth texture develops. The dough will become quite sticky, but this is okay!

  7. Place parchment paper on a baking tray. Form 4 balls (or more, if you prefer smaller cookies) of the dough, and place them on the baking tray, round-shaped. Don’t flatten them!

  8. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the keto cheese bread looks golden, and your kitchen smells heavenly like cheese

Variations: this is a perfect recipe for trying out new combinations of herbs. Cheese is a food product that goes well with all kinds of herbs, such as cumin, Italian herbs, and garlic. You could even add some pressed garlic, if you don’t have any important appointments following up. Seems like you are in need of some extra fiber Today? In that case, add 8 grams of Psyllium Husk to the batter!
