- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until the cheese is melted and well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 eggs.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and salt. Mix well.
- Add the melted cheese mixture and whisked eggs to the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined, forming a dough.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a ball.
- In a small bowl, beat the remaining egg to create an egg wash.
- Dip each dough ball into the egg wash, allowing any excess to drip off, and then roll it in the grated Parmesan cheese. Place the coated dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet.
- If desired, sprinkle the tops of the buns with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or additional grated Parmesan cheese.
- Bake the buns in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch.
- Remove the buns from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your keto cheese buns warm as a side dish or as a tasty snack.
