  • 226 grams cottage cheese (1 cup) I use small curd 4% cottage cheese
  • 2 large room temperature eggs
  • 9 grams instant dry yeast (1 TBS) optional for flavor
  • 15 grams baking powder (1 TBS)
  • 12 grams granulated sweetener (1 TBS) optional I use granulated monkfruit sweetener
  • optional dry seasonings for flavor
  • 56 grams coconut flour (1/2 cup)

For Sweet Dessert Rolls

  • 3 TBS granulated sweetener, adjust to desired sweetness
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or extract of choice


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 6 four-inch diameter silicone burger molds. If no molds line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Place the cottage cheese and eggs in a large food processor. Pulse a few times then process until completely smooth.
  • Add the yeast (if using), baking powder, sweetener (if using), and dry seasonings (if using). If making dessert rolls add the dessert roll ingredients also. Pulse everything together until fully combined. Use a wooden spoon and gradually fold in the coconut flour just until the dough is smooth and lightly sticky.
  • Press dough into a ball and massage in hands to test the texture. The dough should be lightly moist and sticky but should not be sticking to fingers. If too sticky add very small amounts of coconut flour just until the dough no longers stick to fingers.
  • Divide dough into 6 portions. Roll each portion into a smooth ball and place in the center of the prepared molds or onto prepared baking sheet. Press dough evenly and smoothly throughout the molds. If using baking sheet press each ball out to a 4 inch diameter circle.
  • Whisk 1 egg in a small bowl until fully beaten. Lightly brush the egg over the top of each bun. Place in the preheated oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops are golden. remove from the oven. Cool in the molds or on the baking sheet 15 to 20 minutes or until firm.
  • Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before using. This recipe creates 3 tops and 3 bottom buns for a total of 3 full sandwich/burger buns. Once cooled use as desired. If desired thinly slice the brown bottom part of the buns off for a softer center.
