Protein buns

You are going to want to try this! See a video of it here on my Instagram of how I do it in a Ninjabullet.

This recipe has a total of 140 gr protein! To figure out an estimate of how much protein is in each bun divide 140 by the amount of buns you make. In my case each bun is about 10 gr since I made 14 buns.

And why should you prioritize protein? These are my main reasons:

  1. It decreases inflammation
  2. It helps repair and rebuild your body's tissues
  3. It promotes mental health by improving brain function


Start by turning your oven to Fan (i. blástur) and 200 C / 390 F


  • 9 egg whites from a bottle (about 1 and 1/4 cup) or 4 eggs*
  • 500 gr cottage cheese (about 2 cups)
  • 400 gr old fashioned oats (about 4 and 1/4 cups)
  • 2,5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • A little extra egg whites and sesame seeds to make them pretty before they go in the oven

Put oats into food processor and mix together until its like flour (1-2 mins) then transfer to bowl. Put egg whites and cottage cheese in the food processor and mix together for 1-2 mins. Transfer to bowl and mix everything together adding the baking powder and salt OR if you use a Ninja or Nutribullet. You'll have to do this in a Nutri/Ninjabullet in 4 parts (part 1 half of the oats until they become like flower, part 2 is the other half of the oats, part 3 is half of the cottage cheese and half of the egg whites, part 4 is the other half of the cottage cheese and egg whites). Add each part to a bowl, then add baking powder and salt and mix together.

Once everything is mixed together, should take about 1-2 minutes for each in the food processor and about 30-60 second for each part in the Ninja or Nutribullet then prep a cooking sheet and use a table spoon to make the buns.

Bake for 20-22 minutes. Let them cool down for at least 5 minutes before you cut them.

To keep them fresh cut them and freeze. Then toast them in the toaster.

This recipe is perfect if you like bread but want to feel better after and get in your protein goal of the day. Check out my food planning course if you want a simple approach to your diet! 

Put whatever you like on your bun or use it as a mini sandwich. To get 30+gr of protein as a breakfast on the go eat one bun with butter for example and drink a protein drink with it!
