  • 98 grams coconut flour (14 TBS)
  • 10 grams baking powder (2 tsp)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 44 grams whey protein powder or protein powder of choice (1/2 cup) can also use almond flour instead
  • 3 grams xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder (1 tsp) keeps dough flexible

  • 2 large room temperature eggs
  • 1/2 cup very soft room temperature butter

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl until there are no lumps.

  • Form dough into a ball and massage for 1 minute. test the dough buy placing a large portion of dough between hands and roll the portion into a log. The dough should be lightly sticky and hold its shape. Divide the dough into 5 equal portions. Line a clean worksurface with parchment paper. Place 1 portion of dough onto the paper.

  • Continue the shaping process until all the portions of dough are shaped and placed on the prepared baking sheet. Leave space between each bun for even cooking. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven.

  • Whisk all the glaze ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Place parchment paper under a cooling rack. Transfer the warm buns onto the cooling rack. Immediately brush the glaze evenly over the warm buns. Let sit 3 to 5 minutes so the glaze can set in.
