I had a request to make the well loved low carb Swedish Breakfast Buns egg free got right to work and the result was amazing. they are light and fluffy with wonderful pockets of holes inside. I don't know what the professional term is for those lovely holes that are so often missing in low carb breads.
I altered the ingredients a bit from the original recipe by using loose flax eggs, increasing the baking powder and decreasing the salt. Now if you don't eat eggs you can enjoy these wonderful buns.
You can leave out the sesame seeds and sunflower seeds if you like for those of you who don't like seedy breads.
