Keto Rolls And Sliders
Following a keto diet can sometimes feel extremely hard. We all like to eat some carbs here and there. However, with this keto rolls and sliders recipe, you can once again enjoy that bread-like feeling without destroying all of the efforts you have achieved during your keto diet journey.
This recipe is great for any occasion. Whether you want to enjoy the big game nights cheering for your favorite team while you munch down on some tasty food, or you want to prepare a simple and healthy dinner alternative, this recipe is what you are looking for.
In order to keep the carbs under a certain limit, regular wheat flour will be substituted with almond flour. Furthermore, with the addition of eggs, cream cheese, and mozzarella the protein and fat is not something to worry about. Additionally, the spices and herbs used in this recipe will provide that feeling of freshly baked bread that we all know and love. On that note, experimenting with different herbs and spices is most definitely encouraged. Find something that works for you and modify it as much as you can to your own taste.
On top of everything, you will not have to spend a lot of time in order to prepare this recipe. It takes less than an hour from start to finish. With a quick prep time of 10 minutes and a baking time of 30 minutes, you can enjoy these rolls right away.
This is also a great way to do meal prep. You can choose to make a couple of bigger rolls that you will eat on the same day, or make them smaller to enjoy during the week. No matter what, this recipe is an amazing way to get that bread fix without consuming too many carbs.
WHAT YOU’LL LOVE ABOUT THIS KETO ROLLS RECIPE…
To begin with, you can adjust this recipe to make 4 large rolls, or several bite-sized keto rolls that you can enjoy throughout the week. And you can customize it even more by incorporating your favorite spices, herbs, and seasonings. In this recipe, I use rosemary and chives in order to get a classic, fresh-baked bread roll smell and taste that complements the thyme in the sliders, but you should feel free to experiment according to your own tastes.
This AWESOME keto bread recipe is easy to follow and hardly takes any time at all. The prep time is just 10 minutes, and it only takes 30 minutes to bake, so you can be in and out of the kitchen in under an hour.

KETO LOW-CARB ROLLS
Ingredients for 4 extra-large rolls
You can also make 8 small rolls for parties
- 4.5oz almond flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon dried chives
- 4oz cream cheese
- 168g shredded mozzarella cheese (part skim, low moisture)
- 1 egg
Set oven to 350F.
Mix together the dry ingredients and be sure to fluff out any chunks. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, add cream cheese and mozzarella and microwave for about 1 minute. When it’s melted, mix it up until smooth. Add the egg and mix again until smooth.
Add in the almond flour, then mix and mash it up until it forms a dough. Since the dough is sticky, wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer or refrigerator for 20 minutes to cool. Remove it from the freezer and place it on a lightly dusted surface (with almond flour) so it doesn’t stick.
Cut the dough into fourths for large rolls, or even eighths for party size. Spray your hands with olive oil, then roll the dough into equal size balls. TIP: I like to let the dough sit for 15 more minutes in the fridge so it doesn’t lose shape when baking.
Place the rolls on a baking tray lined with parchment or silpat, then bake for about 20 minutes at 350F, or until golden brown. Let the rolls cool after baking, about 10 – 15 minutes before enjoying! For best results, place them on a cooling rack.
Thyme Burger Sliders
Mix together the ground meat and seasonings. Form small patties, about 2 – 3 oz in size. TIP: make a thumb print in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t rise when cooking.
Spray a nonstick skillet with olive oil and set on medium heat. Add the patties and cook on each side until your desired readiness.
