Keto Rolls

I saw a picture of some perfectly fluffy dinner rolls the other night while scrolling Pinterest. And I knew right then and there that I had to create my own keto version. So I spent the week playing around with recipes and what to eat them with!

Fathead dough is so versatile and is used for a great many things. But one thing is for sure and that is it isn't always easy to get it to rise and STAY risen! Often times it will rise in the oven and then shrink back down when you take it out.

That is not the case with these lovely keto buns!

These rise up, get crisp on the outside and stay that way.

What Can I Eat Keto Bread Rolls With?

Well...... Butter! Do you need anything else?

Ok, but seriously, I eat them with a variety of things.

I make sandwiches with keto chicken salad for lunches and it is perfect. I make a batch of keto rolls and a batch of chicken salad and my lunches are set for a few days.

Which is GREAT because lunch is always the wildcard for me.

Another fun idea is to make mini pizza rolls. I wish I had a picture to share, but basically you just cut the low carb rolls in half, layer it with keto pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni and you have little pizza rolls! You can even bake them if you want, but you don't need to.

Can I Freeze Keto Buns?

You sure can! Wait until they are fully cooled before freezing them. You can warm them up in the oven or microwave, your choice!

How Do I Store These Keto Dinner Rolls?

You can leave them on the counter for a short bit. But for extended storage (more than a few hours), make sure to store them in the fridge.

Additionally, use an airtight container to help maintain the freshness.

What do Low Carb Buns Taste Like?

These don't taste like simple, traditional fathead dough for two reasons:

  1. They are baked in a way to harden the outside which provides the roll feel.
  2. The spices used really allow the flavor to pop.

Now, the undertone will always be fathead dough. You can't make dough with cheese and expect to not taste the cheese. BUT, these keto rolls really do have the look, feel and taste of more traditional buns!

How to Make Keto Rolls

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. That's the first step.

In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder and beaten egg. It will be a wet, crumbly consistency. Set aside.

In a small microwave safe bowl, combine Mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Heat for 60 seconds, stir and heat for about 30 more seconds. Add cheese mixture to egg mixture.

Keto Single Serve Pizza

Using your hands (be mindful that it is hot and do not burn your hands), squeeze the dough through your fingers to combine. It will feel like it won't combine, but eventually it will.

Put in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool.

Separate the dough into 6 even chunks and roll into nice balls. Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Increase temperature to 400 and bake for 6-8 more minutes until lightly golden brown.

  1. May be a silly question but instead of kneading the mixture by hand, can I use my KitchenAid mixer? I have Arthritis in my hands so doing it by hand isn’t possible but I realize the mixer may introduce too much air.

    1. Not a silly question at all! You *should* be able to do this. It doesn’t require hand mixing, but I just find it is the easiest way. So, if your kitchenaid mixer can do the job, then it should come out the same!

  2. I’m astounded this recipe does not have more loves! They are a perfect dinner roll. An actual roll! A crusty roll! I’ve made fathead dough countless ways, and this will be the only way I make rolls from now on! I always pulse my dry ingredients in my food processor, add the beaten eggs and pulse until crumbly, then add the melted cheeses and pulse to combine. Easy peasy, and I think the oat flour makes it much less sticky than other recipes. My oven must be hotter, because after 6 min at 400 they were dark golden so I may reduce the temp a bit next time. Perfection! Thank you so much! Cheers!

  3. Hi Trina! I’m gathering new recipes to try on the Keep it Keto for Life program ya’ll are doing now. I’ve put some yeast in recipes before just to give them even more of a real bread flavor. Is that alright? I’m going to try this recipe as soon as I can get some oat fiber!
