Okay, lets be real for a second.
I don't love these rolls because they are "Keto". I'm not even on a keto diet. Probably like many of you, I just like good food. Whether its keto, low carb, low fat, blah blah blah.
I like food.
My husband does too.
And so does my daughter. So there. We are just a family that likes food, ok?
Anyways, these dinner rolls are ah-mazing. They don't make you feel bloated or yuck afterwards either. (unless you eat like four of them) :P
So, if you are stuck at home, these are a fun addition to help complete your dinner.
Let's get to it!
1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese (can be subbed with cheddar... YUM)
2 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 large egg
3 tbsp melted butter (this is for after you pull rolls out of oven)
Garlic powder for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix almond flour, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum (or guar gum) and salt.
Heat shredded cheese and cream cheese in a microwavable bowl for 1- 1 1/2 mins until cheese is melted. Once melted, mix thoroughly and place in a mixing bowl.
Beat almond mixture into cheese mixture. Add egg and mix well.
Gather dough and form a ball. Slightly flatten and divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into small balls.
Place each ball on cookie sheet leaving 1 1/2 - 2 inches between each. Bake for 12 mins. or until golden brown.
After removing from oven, brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle a dusting of garlic powder on top.
