Keto Popovers

Breads, Recipes


• 2 tsp Xanthan Gum
• 1¼ cups almond flour
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 cup water
• 2 tsp cider vinegar
• 3 egg whites
• 2 tbsp Butter softened for greasing the pan


Preheat the oven to 350°F
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Bring the water to a boil.

Add vinegar and egg whites to the dry ingredients, and combine well. Add boiling water, while beating with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds. Don’t over mix the dough, the consistency should resemble loose Play-Doh.

Spoon equal amounts of batter into a well greased popover pan or muffin tin.

Bake on lower rack in the oven for 50–60 minutes. They should be a deep golden brown when done.

Makes 6 Popovers

I discovered this recipe through a happy accident. I was trying to make keto bread but wanted to change some ingredients from the common keto breads I found online.

Instead of rolls the bread puffed up inside and was hollow. So, I thought, this would make a great popover if it puffed up enough when using a popover pan.

It worked! and the result is something that is very close to a standard regular flour popover. It’s almost as tall and has a wonderfully nutty flavor from the almond flour.

To top it off each popover has only 3 grams of net carbs.

I hope you give it a try.
