Many months ago I ran across this keto bread recipe, and tried it out. It was fabulous, and made a great sandwich bread. However, it used a lot of almond flour, which made it an S fuel. I was looking at it again this week and wondered if I could make it into a Fuel Pull by using the Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend in place of the almond flour. I also made a few other adjustments, but please do check out the original recipe for keto bread.
Using the Baking Blend in place of the almond flour also cut way down on the calories – these rolls only have 68 calories each! And only 1 net carb.
I like to use them for sandwiches, but they also make great garlic bread. Simply slice the rolls in half, slather with butter and garlic, then toast in the oven. (Adding butter, of course, would make it an S fuel.) You can even add spices or herbs to the dough itself if you want a more savory roll.
If you don’t mind changing the fuel type from a Fuel Pull to an S, you can brush melted butter on the tops of the rolls as soon as you remove them from the oven, then sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesan. So good!
I know people will ask, “Do these taste just like bread?” And the answer to that is no, they do not taste “just like bread.” But, they are close enough for me, and I especially love the fact that they are a FP! I sometimes eat my sandwiches on sprouted bread, but I miss being able to have cheese and mayonnaise. Now I can have it all!
These low carb sandwich rolls have a crisp crust, with a soft interior. They are chewy, like real bread. My very picky 8 year old daughter gobbled one up and declared it was very good! (I was shocked – she usually doesn’t like such things.) I should also add that bread is one of her favorite foods! Even my husband thought these tasted great!
I cannot wait for you guys to try them and let me know what you think! The ideas for these are endless – open face meatball sandwiches, pizza sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, well, . . . you get the idea!

Preheat oven to 350.
In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients.
While mixing with a hand mixer, add apple cider vinegar, boiling water, and egg whites.
Mix for about 15-20 seconds, or just until ingredients are combined and begin to clump together.
Dough will be a bit goopy, almost like oatmeal. (Don't worry, that is normal!)
With wet hands, shape dough into eight rolls and place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 60-65 minutes, or until bread sounds hollow when tapping the bottom.
For best results, allow bread to cool completely before slicing.
I know it is tempting to cut into your bread as soon as it comes out of the oven, but I've found that the texture is much better after they cool completely.
Also, another note - I do not like to eat these by themselves as dinner rolls, but they make a great sandwich bread or garlic bread!
