Keto Buns:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. Add the melted butter and eggs into a blender. Then add “EBTB” seasoning, rosemary and almond flour. Pulse until all of the batter is completely mixed together.
  3. Pour the batter equally into a metal non-stick 6-ct jumbo muffin mold. Optional – sprinkle more “EBTB” over each bun). Place in the oven and bake for 17-18 minutes. (If you use silicone mold you will need to bake them longer, 25 to 26 minutes).
  4. Remove muffins from the oven and allow to cool before slicing.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands.
  3. Form into 16-18 golf ball-sized meatballs and place on the baking sheet. I used a melon ball scooper to make sure they were even in size.
  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and insides are no longer pink.
  5. When ready to serve, warm marinara in a sauce pan and roll the meatballs in the sauce.



To shave off some calories and fat, simply remove the top bun and enjoy this open-faced!

Leftover buns: simply store the sliced buns in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
