Honestly before starting the keto diet. I wasn't one to go crazy over breads. But since starting this WOE. My cravings for bread has increased. Blame it on the psychology of wanting what you can't have lol. These keto dinner rolls always hit the right spot for me just like my best ever keto bread does. This is a similar recipe with some modifications.

How to make Keto dinner rolls
These Keto dinner rolls are made from our good old low carb dough aka the fathead dough but with a little twist. I swapped instead the cheese for butter. You know butter makes stuff ah-mazing right? These keto dinner rolls are to die for. O my yum!!
To make these keto dinner rolls, you will need;
- Butter ( I used my home made butter )
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Almond flour
- instant Yeast (optional)
- Erytritol (optional)
Melt the butter and mozzarella cheese. Add Almond flour then the beaten eggs. Mix, mix mix. Till it all comes together
Divide dough into 8 balls. Place in a greased 10 in skillet. Brush the top of the rolls with egg wash. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 F for 15 mins or until top is lightly golden brown
Brush top with some melted butter. Now tell me what this is, if it isn't some kind of culinary heaven ??

Keto Dinner Rolls
- 1 ½ cup blanched almond flour
- 1 tbsp Baking powder
- 2 ½ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 3 tablespoon Butter ( reserve 1 Tablespoon for brushing the rolls when they are ready )
- 2 tablespoon unflavored protein powder
- 2 Large Eggs beaten + 1 for egg wash
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast or instant ( use up to 2 teaspoon for more intense flavor )
- 1 Tbsp erythritol ( optional)
- Preheat oven to 400ºF
- Mix dry ingredients ( almond flour, protein powder, yeast, erythritol, and baking powder) together and set aside
- Put the butter, and shredded Mozzarella cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 seconds intervals until cheese is evenly melted. Remember to stir in between ( helps to distribute the heat. ) it usually takes me about 1 min 30 secs in total sometimes 2 mins.
- Pour dry ingredients into the microwaved cheese and butter mix the and mix with your hands or with a spatula then add the cold eggs. Mix till a ball of dough forms
- Grease a 10 in Skillet and line the bottom with parchment paper.
- Wet your hands and divide the dough into 8 equal balls
- Place them in the greased and lined cast iron skillet.
- Brush with egg wash then bake in the oven for 10 to 12 mins or until the top is golden brown.
- Bring out of the oven, brush some melted butter on top allow to cool and enjoy.
- These dinner rolls are soft and delicious but they are a bit flatter than regular dinner rolls.
- If you don't want to use protein powder, add 1 tablespoon of coconut flour. I do this because using butter for this recipe makes the dough more oily so addition of the protein powder or coconut flour helps mop it up and brings the dough together.
I could eat that whole pan as I am a breadaholic! I just love that browned top yummy!
I love the browned top too. Thanks Claudia ?

I can't believe you can make keto dinner rolls. These look totally delicious and nice that you don't have to deprive yourself.
Yes you can. ? keto recipes have evolved. Lots of choices available now.
These rolls look amazing, I would never have guessed that they were gluten free!
Yup. Totally ?
Sending this recipe to my sister who is GF! 🙂
Awww. Thanks Julia. That’s kind of you ❤️
Do you have a substitute for protein powder? I don’t have any on hand.
You don’t have to use the protein powder. You can sub with a Tbsp of coconut flour.

Never would have thought to make rolls like this but they look awesome!
They taste awesome too. Thanks Amy
I wish I had seen this when I was doing my Keto challenge! ?my life would have been so much better, I was so miserable!
Lol at being miserable. I hear you and I totally feel you. Thanks for stopping by Chantal. ❤️
I've never tried baking a keto recipe before. But your picture guide makes these look easy enough. They definitely look delicious!
I love the golden color of these rolls and how beautifully they rise! Gorgeous and delicious!
This looks divine! My 15-yr-old has Celiac and is therefore GF. We struggle finding breads he loves, so we'll give this one a go. Thank you!
You are welcome. I think he would love this. I have had great reviews on it. Enjoy
Hi! I want to make this today! What can I use to replace the protein powder?
Hi Mary Anne,
You can skip the protein powder either you increase the almond flour by 2 Tbsp or add 1 Tbsp of coconut flour. Let me know how it went. Thanks for stopping by. ?
These were beautiful & delicious. I'm loving my new keto cooking & eating. I used coconut flour, minus the protein powder. I rarely crave sweets or carbs at all anymore. 30lbs down in 2 months! Because of great cooks like you doll! Thank you ??
Awwww. That’s awesome. Congratulations on your journey so far. That’s amazing. Keep slaying. Thanks for your kind Words and feedback. You are the MVP. #ketoOn ??
Yes coconut flour is a great alternative to almond flour in this recipe and the protein powder is optional. Hope you get to try more recipes from the blog. Enjoy ?
I don’t have a cast iron skillet can I use something else?
You can use a 10 in round cake pan or pie dish or an 8 or or 9 inch baking pan or dish
What do we do if not adding the instant yeast? Chill for 15-20 min? Thanks!
No you don’t need to chill it. If you are not using the instant yeast, bake after mixing all the ingredients.
This is a keeper, thank u so much ❤️
I used French vanilla protein powder since I think butter smell is similar to vanilla since I don’t have unflavored and I’m not a fan of coconut flour. It turned out really great, Keep it up! ❤️
Thank you so much for letting me know you ladies enjoyed it. Always Love to hear from you all ❤️
It must have tasted delicious with the vanilla protein powder.
Hope you find more delicious recipes on the blog and that you share with your family and friends. 😉 Stay safe and well.
Hello, does taking take out the cheese make a huge difference? Is there a more affordable substitute.
Unfortunately, the mozzarella cheese is a vital part of this recipe. It adds to the stretch and texture of the bread. It would make a huge difference without it. But you can try this other bread recipe that doesn’t need mozzarella cheese. They can be made into rolls too.
Hope my response helped you. Thanks for stopping by.

I am a huge fan of your recipes I've tried so far - The keto oatmeal (I sneak in half or 1/3 small banana, especially if I'm having just a tuna salad that day), and the banana bread is to die for!
I am trying to minimise my daily net carbs, and almond flour is more dear than coconut flour price wise also. I am about to try this recipe with coconut flour instead: Substitute for roughly 1/4 cup + 2 tbs, for the 1.5 cup almond flour.
I have the new nutrition value for fats, protein and net carbs as approximately 9.35F, 8.5P, and 3NC,; using the coconut flour. Please advise if this is accurate?
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Happy new year! Glad you are a fan of my recipes cos I am a fan of all my readers! You all are the MVPs.
Of course I am happy to help. If you want to use coconut flour, I have a fathead dough recipe you can use. I would link to it below.
All you need to do is
• Add 1 Tbsp of baking powder,
• Swap out the cream cheese for butter
• Double the recipe.
I think it will make about 9- 10 rolls instead of 8.
That nutrition facts is already calculated for that recipe. Let me know it goes. Thank you for reaching out. Feel free to reach out again if you have more questions.
