  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temp
  • 8 tbsp butter, room temp 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup whey powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Whisk together eggs and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until frothy.
  • Add cream cheese and butter and whisk until well combined and smooth.
  • Add flour, whey, arrowroot, baking powder, Xanthan gum, and sea salt. Whisk until it becomes like wet dough.
  • Using a spatula fold in mozzarella cheese (the recipe works best and tastes best with a good quality organic mozzarella cheese)
  • With oiled hands gather up dough and shape into a ball. You will want it to fit cupped in the palm of your hand. Slightly bigger than a ping pong ball. Ours makes 12 even dough balls pressed down into a silicon pan that is made especially for hamburger buns (click to view the one we used).
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
