I have developed many bread recipes over my journey, but these little guys are The Bomb! They are also my current new favourite! They are soft, stable, full of flavour, and the recipe could not be simpler (if you use the right ingredients – see the step-by-step pics below). As a lunch or snack option, Funnyman halves one and melts cheese over the two halves with a little pesto (or a slice of tomato) and simply adds a pinch of Sea Salt Flakes or cracked Pink Himalayan Salt… Or….. my personal preference, serve it up as a side dish to mop up all the sauce from the rich, moist dishes you are creating. YUM! They store well in the fridge (wrapped or sealed) for a few days – and can then be simply unwrapped and popped in the microwave for a few seconds to ‘bring back to life’. The macros are shown as one soft dinner roll = one serving.
Deliciously soft, these keto dinner rolls are made using a combination of coconut flour, almond flour and psyllium husk powder (an essential ingredient). There is also plenty of fat incorporated, which helps keep the rolls soft and moist.
For the 'wet' mix, melt the butter in a small pan over low heat. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before adding to a bowl of whisked water, eggs and olive oil. Whisk well to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine all the 'dry' ingredients very well to ensure the baking powders are evenly distributed. Pour in the egg mix and mix well to combine.
You will notice the mixture will thicken as the seconds tick by, this is thanks to the psyllium husk powder - an essential ingredient. You may want to switch your whisk for a wooden spoon or spatula at this time.
Divide the mixture into 9 equal-sized portions.
Use clean hands to form 9 little balls. The mixture contains a lot of fat, so the balls will seem very soft. Place them into a little tray (lined with baking parchment), leaving a little space between each ball.
Use a pastry brush to brush the olive oil over the balls of dough.
Scatter over the sesame and poppy seeds.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 150°C / 300°F and bake for an additional 15 minutes. (I always rotate my tray halfway through too).
Tear apart and enjoy warm!

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 4.5g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
