Substituting breadcrumbs on a keto diet seems easy. You can use almond flour or flax meal but let’s face it – they are not the same as proper breadcrumbs.
These are the best low-carb and grain-free breadcrumbs – just like the real deal! You won’t even know they are keto. You can use them just like regular breadcrumbs: in meatballs, chicken nuggets or breaded cauliflower. They do take time to prepare but it’s totally worth it!

Ingredients (makes 4 3/4 cups/ 14.1 oz)
6 large egg whites (reserve yolks for another recipe)
2 large whole eggs
2 cups water, boiling water (480 ml/ 16 fl oz)
Note: Don’t waste the egg yolks – use them for making Home-made Mayo, Easy Hollandaise Sauce or Lemon Curd. For nut-free and flax-free options, read the tips in my Ultimate Keto Buns recipe.
Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F. Prepare the Ultimate Keto Buns. Mix all the dry ingredients. Add the egg whites and eggs and process well using a mixer until the dough is thick. Add boiling water and process until well combined.
Using a spoon, make 8-10 buns and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Remove from the oven, let the tray cool down and place the buns on a rack to cool down for a few minutes.
Top each of the buns with sesame seeds (or any other seeds) and press them into the dough, so they don’t fall out. Place in the oven and cook for 45-50 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 100 °C/ 210 °F. Dice the bread. Place on a tray and dehydrate for 45-60 minutes.
When done, remove from the oven and set aside for 5-10 minutes. Place in a food processor and process until fine.
Place in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for up to 6 months.
