Typically keto bread items are tougher and have more chew but these are easy to pull-apart are are so so soft. They are great served with a little butter. 

I originally made these soft keto dinner rolls. They weren't bad at all. They were quite tasty.

But since then I've developed a Keto Bread and Pastry Flour that's now available for purchase on my website. The flour is a blend that I worked on for probably a year or more! 

It involved a ton of testing different ingredient ratios and finding what combination could produce the best texture and flavour closest to that of traditional bread and pastry items.

This flour is my pride and joy. It's amazing for making keto alternatives to all your favourite things like bread, buns, pizza crust, pie crust, croissants, turnovers, cinnamon rolls and so much more. 

The best keto dinner rolls are actually super easy to make. The flour does most of the work for you. All you need to do is add a few extra ingredients and follow the simple directions. 

The best part is that this keto dinner roll dough doesn't require much kneading so you can make it easily without a stand mixer/it's great if you are new to bread making or baking with yeast.

These keto dinner rolls pair well with both sweet or savoury toppings. Sometimes I'll even melt a little bit of cheese on the tops of them or mix some in with parmesan and other italian spices for a fun twist. 

In the video and recipe below I make 6 rolls. I just whisk an egg and use 2 tbsp or 30g of it instead of a whole egg. But if you'd like to keep it simple, just double the recipe and use a whole egg!

Ingredients In The Best Keto Dinner Rolls 2021

  • Mouthwatering Motivation Keto Bread & Pastry Flour – A keto flour I developed to be used in place of white flour in most keto bread and pastry items. It gives baked goods the taste and texture most similar to that of white flour. It also keeps keto baking simple. Just one flour for every recipe!
  • Almond Milk – You can really use any milk here. Light coconut milk or almond milk are both great options. My favourite is Silk's Almond + Cashew Protein Milk because it has the most similar profile to that of whole milk, which is traditionally used in bread rolls. For the yeast, make sure your milk is heated to around 110* if you have a thermometer. Other-wise, just make sure it's not too hot to the touch. 
  • Dry Active Yeast – Make sure your yeast is fresh. If it does't bubble or froth up a bit in the warm milk, it may be expired. I store mine in the freezer to keep it fresh for much longer. 
  • White Sugar – This is required for the yeast to activate. The yeast consumes it and it's converted to CO2 and alcohol so please don't be afraid of adding it to your keto recipes. You can even use 1 tbsp inulin instead if you'd prefer.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener – This is my favourite keto sweetener, but any sweetener will work in this recipe.
  • Egg – Make sure your egg is room temperature for best results.
  • Butter – I used salted for this recipe but unsalted also works just fine. 
  • Salt

Tools I Used To Make The Best Keto Dinner Rolls

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Spatula or Spoon
  • Baking Dish
  • Plastic Wrap or Dish Towel

Tips For Making The Best Keto Dinner Rolls

  • Make sure to use almond milk around 110*F for your yeast o activate best. This is typically quite warm but not too hot that you couldn't put your finger in the water comfortably.
  • This keto dinner roll dough doesn't need a lot of kneading so if you are using a stand mixer for the recipe, use a low setting and be careful not to over-knead the dough. It should feel elastic and spring back when you lightly press a finger into it once it's done being kneaded. 
  • I like to use salted butter for the melted butter portion of this recipe. If using unsalted butter, these can be really tasty with a tiny sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top after you've brushed them with butter.

How To Store The Best Keto Dinner Rolls 

  • Store these dinner rolls in a ziplock bag at room temperature for up to 3 days OR freeze and thaw as desired. You can microwave them to re-heat them or just let them thaw on the counter.
