Carb Free Buns

carb free buns

 

Ingredients:

3 Large Eggs (separated)
3 Tbs. Low-Fat Cottage Cheese (or Fat-Free Cream Cheese)
.25 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1 tsp. Splenda Granules (or preferred sweetener)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (or 175 Celcius)

Separate your eggs making sure there is absolutely no yolk in the white mixture.

In a small bowl, mix together egg yolks, cottage cheese, and sweetener until creamy.

In a larger bowl, add egg whites and cream of tartar and beat the whites with an electric mixer on high until fluffy. You want this mixture to be well whipped and quite stiff – under mixing will result in a very runny mixture.

Carefully fold egg yolk mixture into the egg whites with a large spatula, until evenly mixed. Try not to over-mix, you don’t want to loose the ‘fluffiness’ of the egg whites mixture.

Spray two cookie sheets with Pam (or fat-free cooking spray).

With a large spoon “scoop” the mixture into 10 even rounds on the sheets (about the size of the top-half of the McDonalds hamburger bun; roughly 3/4 inch thick and 4 to 5 inches across).

Place cookie sheet the middle rack and set timer for 20 minutes. Now you will need to watch them, because the cooking time may vary on any two batches. Basically, you want them to bake until they become nice and golden brown color (the color of a McDonalds bun).

Remove from the pans and cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
