Sticky Buns... 1 Carb per bun... Half was gone before I had a chance to try it. My very opinionated teens approved it. Amazingly it’s keto and hard to believe it actually is.
I also made some glaze by mixing inulin and water. I know not many people have that as an ingredient so I didn’t include it in the recipe and it’s not necessary.
If you happened to have it, mix 3 tbs of inulin with 1 cup of water.
Inulin is a prebiotic, full of fiber, and slightly sweet and mine is made from Chicory Roots.
I use it in my chocolates as well.
Prebiotics help with your gut bacteria. Promote building a healthy flora. And not having a healthy flora down there is correlated with obesity.
TOOLS and GADGETS
- 9 inch Round oven-safe pan, iron cast skillet works well
- Mixing Bowls and Measuring Cups
- Rolling Pin, You can use just your hands if you don't have one, but it won't be as even
- Small pot to caramelize allulose
- Kitchen Mixer, optional
WHERE TO BUY ALLULOSE
TIPS and SUBSTITUTIONS
- Caramelizing allulose works quite fine. Don’t worry when it gets hardened, it will melt again in the oven and will stay soft after baking it.
- One important thing when caramelizing allulose is that it goes from yellowish color to black very quickly. So after it starts to turn the color, stay with it. I burnt it on my first try 😊
- It’s easier to make this dough with a kitchen mixer, if you have a bread machine it works too. You can knead it by hand of course, it will take time but it’s like therapy 😂
- Erythritol can be substituted for allulose. It also caramelizes like sugar. Stevia will not work, it won't caramelize, and neither does monk fruit.
