The Keto Bread You've Been Dreaming Of

I've been living the ketogenic lifestyle for more than a year now and have tried many disappointing bread recipes. Finally, I found one that doesn't taste eggy, is actually soft, light and flavorful, as well as low carb. And bonus, the recipe is super easy, requiring no real baking skills.
I use these for avocado toast, as hamburger buns, for sandwiches, or whenever I'm craving bread. They're great toasted and served warm and slathered with butter or cream cheese.

Ingredients: (makes 6 rolls)
5 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder
1 1/4 cups almond flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cider vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
3 egg whites
1 cup water
Oil (I use avocado but any variety is fine)
Everything bagel seasoning (optional)
(4 tbsp sesame seeds, 4 tbsp poppy seeds, 2 tbsp dried minced onion, 2 tbsp dried garlic flakes, 2 tsp sea or pink Himalayan salt) Or just buy some everything but the bagel seasoning

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add vinegar and egg whites to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Bring the water to a boil, either on the stove or in the microwave for 90 to 120 seconds, add to other ingredients. Don't over mix, just until its doughy and well combined.
Spread everything bagel seasoning in a shallow bowl or plate.
Moisten fingers with oil, so dough doesn't stick, and shape into 6 separate ovals. Coat in bagel mix and set onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake on lower oven rack for 50-60 minutes until tapping the bottom of roll creates hollow sound.
