KETO BREAD ROLLS
- 75 g ground psyllium husk powder
- 300 g almond flour
- 30 g baking powder
- 10 ml of salt
- 475 ml boiling water
- 20 ml cider vinegar
- 6 XL egg whites
- 35 g sesame or poppy seeds for decorating
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
In a large bowl, mix psyllium husk, baking powder and salt with a small hand whisk and set aside.
Bring the water to a boil and set aside.
Add vinegar and egg whites to the dry ingredients. Use a large spoon and mix it halfway through.
Add boiling water as lastly the almond flour.
Keep mixing rapidly with the spoon. You should beat it until it comes together and has a frothy like consistency.
If you wish you can do it with an electric hand blender for no more than 30 seconds.
I tried both and prefer to do it by hand and not a mixer.
The first time I tried it, I used a mixer and it was a very dense and solid dough.
I will most definitely make this again and again and continue to whip it by hand as this way you also whip in some and, thus frothy as mentioned before.
Once you have a good dough consistency, apply some VOO (virgin olive oil) on your hands and shape the dough into 12 – 14 rolls.
The quantity will depend on the size of the balls you make.
Be cautious, do not over handle it, work lightly when shaping the bread rolls.
With the oil on your hands, it will help to shape the bread roll.
Place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Feel free to add some sesame or poppy seeds on the rolls for decoration. It also adds some extra crunch and both are healthy as well.
Bake on the middle rack in the oven for 50 – 60 minutes, depending on the size of your bread rolls.
They’re done when you hear a hollow sound when tapping the bottom of the bun.
Serve with a huge chunk and butter with any topping or as a side to a meal or for your lunch box.
Sesame seeds are a good source of thiamine, niacin, and vitamin B6, which are necessary for proper cellular function and metabolism.
Poppy seeds add great flavor and crunch to foods, they also provide some respectable health benefits.
One teaspoon of poppy seeds have enough calcium and phosphorus to meet 4% of your daily needs.
Poppy seeds also provide the body with 2% to 4% of the daily needs for iron in one teaspoon.
