  • 1 1/2  cup  blanched almond flour
  • tbsp  Baking powder
  • 2 1/2  cup  shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 3 Tbsp Butter ( reserve 1 Tablespoon for brushing the rolls when they are ready )
  • 2 Tbsp unflavored protein powder
  • Large Eggs beaten + 1 for egg wash
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast or instant ( use up to 2 tsp for more intense flavor )
  • 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 Tbsp 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.
