Holding keto buttery dinner roll

Buttery rolls that are low-carb? Yes, please!

Who doesn’t love that perfect savory-sweet dinner roll just like the ones you’re served at a restaurant or those King’s Hawaiian rolls you buy at the store? 😋 Now you can make them at home and it’s actually easier than you’d think. The best part? These dinner rolls are keto and have just 2g net carbs per roll!

If you’re missing bread, you’ve got to make these!

You may see the words “homemade keto dinner rolls” and think this recipe will be confusing and complicated, but I have eliminated a lot of the typical steps. As long as you can mix and knead, you can make these delicious dinner rolls for your next gathering, and wow your guests in under 30 minutes.

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • After several attempts making these using pineapple oil, I realized that the flavor of cheese and pineapple wasn’t the greatest combination. I decided to sweeten the rolls up with 2 teaspoons of monk fruit instead and some good ol’ butter.
    • There’s no rise time required for these rolls, so as soon as you mix the ingredients together you can pop them directly into the oven. So easy!
    • We recommend using pre-shredded mozzarella cheese or shredding a firmer cheese brick, rather than using fresh. The moisture in the fresh mozzarella can cause excess stickiness in the dough.
    • During holidays or larger gatherings, I often find that all my baking sheets are being used, so I use cupcake pans as my go-to for rolls. Perfect portions and easy to pop right out.

    Smells sooo good…can’t wait…just another minute or so…

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Did you love them, Colleen?

  2. Darlene

    I’m in the middle of making these and you do not mention when to add the parm cheese? is that considered part of the dry ingredients?
    Thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That is included in the dry ingredients. 😊

    • Belinda

      It’s in step 3

      • Diney

        Hi, these were really great flavored rolls. Thank you! Ours seemed to be a little on the dry side. We used everything as per the recipe. Can you give any suggestions as how to make them a bit moister? Thanks again!

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          You could reduce the almond flour by one or two teaspoons.

  3. Vanessa

    Do we use shredded parm or the powder crumb?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Vanessa! For this recipe, we used grated Parmesan.

  4. Alicia K.

    I am allergic to nuts… can I sub anything for the almond flour? THANKS! they look amazing!

  5. Chrissy

    Can I use Swerve instead of the monk fruit if so in what measurment please?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, you would use the same about of Swerve as monk fruit sweetener!

  6. Susan A.

    I was just wondering because I haven’t researched this myself, but is yeast permitted on the Keto diet and would it work in the breads? Just curious.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Yeast can be used on Keto. Our recipes don’t contain yeast as they are more quick and easy to make. Hope this helps!

      • Susan A

        Thanks Amber! I may have to experiment. If I do, I’ll let you know how things go!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          GREAT! You’re so welcome! 😊

  7. Pat R.

    Is there another cheese that can be used besides mozzarella? It doesn’t agree with me! 🙁

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Although we haven’t personally tried this, you could try shredded provolone. Please let us know how it works for you, Pat R.!

  8. Lynn Suan

    Oh wow… it’s really fluffy, smells so good and it really is yummy. I will make garlic bread, burger buns, cinnamon buns etc.. using this recipe.
    I send it to my friends too who’s searching for easy and fluffy bread recipes.
    Love this recipe !😁
    Thanks Susan👍

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Lynn! So glad that you love this versatile recipe enough to share with friends❤ Thank you for your sweet feedback!

  9. Reen

    Do you have to use the cheese? If not, do you need to add more flour?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Reen! Great question! Unfortunately, this recipe would not work without the cheese.

  10. Susan

    Really good. Husband approved! Thank you!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Susan! I’m so glad you enjoyed them! We love them too!

  11. Dan

    Hi, this sounds really good. I generally do not care for the flavor that coconut flour brings to dishes. I read the ‘flour’ page (also good stuff!). What I didn’t find is if/how I would use all almond flour, substituting it for the coconut flour in this recipe? And, once subbed to all almond flour, would the recipe still work? Thanks in advance for a reply.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Dan! You could sub almond flour but this would change the flavor & texture and possibly would not be close to the original recipe. The coconut is added not for flavor but for texture in this recipe. It is such a trivial amount that you may not notice it. I have personally made this recipe and could not taste any coconut. If you omit the coconut it would be more of an almond flavor & a different texture. We do have a bagel recipe that could be made into rolls that you may want to try too! Hope this helps❤

  12. Rae Ann Woodrow

    I made the recipe exactly as written, but didn’t get anything similar to “Hawaiian bread.” Mine taste like cheesy egg biscuits. My husband likes them, but they are not even close to what I would call a sweet bread.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m sorry these weren’t as good as you were hoping. We do have more bread recipes you can try here.

  13. Sally Forcey

    Can these be made ahead to say take camping?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I would! But remember without preservatives these will go bad fast. I would keep them on ice and only for a few days.

  14. Connie J Horil

    Do I refrigerate the leftovers?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Connie! I always refrigerate my homemade keto goods to give them a longer shelf life. Since they are preservative free they tend to go bad quicker. ❤

  15. Kelly

    Hi there! Can you use grated parmesan in the green can or should you use the fresh stuff in the refrigerator foods?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there Kelly! You will need the fresh stuff for this recipe.❤

    • Beth

      What can I use instead of monk fruit

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        You can find some other sweetener alternatives here.

  16. Tiffani

    Hi. If I want to make these tomorrow and do prep ahead would you suggest just making the dough ahead and cooking tomorrow? Or completely making the rolls and just warm them up tomorrow ?

    • Mark

      I was hoping to know also

    • Jen

      Same question!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You could make these tonight and store them in the refrigerator until tomorrow. Tomorrow I would pop them in the oven with some fresh melted butter over them to get warm then serve.
