Keto Dinner Rolls Recipe
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it got me thinking about turkey dinner and of course, all of the trimmings. Now, being on the Keto diet normally doesn’t bother me around this time of year. I don’t need the heavy mashed potatoes, and stuffing is kind of a strange concept to me. But, the only thing I get jealous of is the soft buttery dinner rolls.
So, in preparation of the big dinner, I thought I should come up with a replacement so that I don’t have to watch everybody else enjoy their bread. This Keto dinner roll recipes came out better than I could have expected and I will probably use it all year round.
The Wonderful World of Keto Baking
Before I started the Keto diet baking was one of my favorite things to do. Like most people, I have fond memories of helping out in the kitchen, licking the spoon after making cookie dough, and the amazing treats that would follow. So, when I started the Keto diet, learning how to bake all over again was daunting, but important to me.
I have a secret for you. It’s not that difficult. Baking with Keto-friendly ingredients is as easy, and as hard, as regular baking. The only difference is sourcing all of the special flours and it usually requires finding a balance between them all. Other than that, follow the formula and everything should work out fine.
The Many Uses of Dinner Rolls
As if I need to tell you this, but having a bread around is always a great bonus. Having a loaf of sliced bread is one thing, another is having soft dinner rolls to clean up your plate after a great meal.
Dinner rolls go even further than being an accompaniment for a nice dinner. These little buns make the best sandwiches, especially if you have lots of leftover proteins. And, having a bun to snack on is one of the most exquisite treats after being on the Keto diet for a significant amount of time
These little rolls are packed with flavor and the perfect accompaniment to your dinner.

- Combine the coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, olive oil and water together. Once the melted ghee has cooled a little, whisk this in too. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and combine well. Leave to settle for 5 minutes until the mixture firms up a little.
