I’ve tried several keto rolls recipe and I couldn’t personally find one that I felt had the texture of bread. While most were really good in general, they were still missing the texture I was looking for. Most keto rolls recipes use almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseed, or a combination of two of them. I found the best results with combining all three.
There are only eight ingredients in these keto rolls and they are high in fiber, and low in net carbs. Each of the flours in this recipe work differently. Do not substitute one for the other.
At this time I don’t have a dairy-free option for these low carb rolls. I plan on developing a whole new recipe that’s dairy free. When it’s done I’ll link to it here.
Keto Rolls Recipe
This keto rolls recipe makes six perfect sized keto rolls. You can divide the dough in four equal portions and make larger rolls to use as keto hamburger buns. You can also shape the dough into hot dog buns, should you choose. The keto dough is a little sticky, but it’s easy to work with.
Measuring keto flours
Like most flours, keto flours need to be carefully measured to ensure you don’t add too much flour to your recipe. Always spoon flours into the measuring cup. Never scoop your measuring cup into the flours.
Working with keto dough
When you are working with keto dough, whether it’s to make keto rolls or keto pizza, you’ll want to make sure you use oiled hands or wet hands to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Also, you’ll want to bake your keto rolls on parchment paper.
How to make keto rolls
- In a medium mixing bowl, melt the mozzarella and cream cheese together in the microwave (approximately 1 minute). Stir until combined. The cheese will start to harden, but keep stirring.
- Add egg and stir until combined. The mixture won’t be smooth but don’t worry, it will come together in the end.
- Add almond flour, flaxseed, coconut flour, baking soda, and garlic powder to a large mixing bowl.
- Whisk until the flours are combined.
- Add the cheese and egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until the ingredients start to pull together.
- Using oil hands, or wet hands, knead your dough until the ingredients are combined and the cheese is well incorporated.
- Roll the dough into a ball and using a sharp knife, cut the dough into six equal pieces.
- Using oiled hands or wet hands, roll each dough piece into a ball. Place on the baking sheet and bake.

Working with almond flour
A note about using almond flour – It’s NOT a 1-to-1 for other flours, like coconut flour, so it reacts differently in recipes. It’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if you’re not going to use it up in a week or two. Always spoon your almond flour into your measuring cup, unless otherwise noted.
Always bring Almond meal or flour to room temperature before baking with it. If you use it cold, it’ll absorb more of the liquid and your batter will be thicker than it should be. And remember, because it’s made from almonds, it can go rancid, so keep track of when you opened the bag.
Working with coconut flour
Similar to almond flour, coconut flour is not a 1-to-1 for other flours. In fact, it absorbs liquids rather quickly. Coconut flour can also go rancid if not stored properly. It’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if you’re not going to use it up in a week or two. Always spoon your coconut flour into your measuring cup, unless otherwise noted.
Flaxseed meal it pretty easy to work with. It has a long shelf life and can double as an egg replacer. I don’t recommend using it as an egg replacer in this recipe as the egg plays an important roll in helping to pull the ingredients together.
Before you get started, check the expiration date on your ingredients. Also, it’s best to use room temperature ingredients, but it’s not necessary. Also, not everyone can have garlic. If you can’t have garlic, simply leave it out of this recipe.
