Honestly I am totally in love with these low carb rolls. They are super simple to make as well. Absolutely perfect for a low carb burger or a low carb salad roll. 

With only a few changes from our Low Carb Bread Recipe these rolls are so perfect. Amazing just with butter, a salad roll or crazy good burgers.

low carb bread roll ingredients

Yes these rolls do use some specialty ingredients. For most Aussie’s Oat Fiber is only available from Elite Health Supplements or iHerb. These two places are at least the most affordable at least. 

Oat Fiber is NOT Oat Flour. No matter what your local health food shop tells you. Oat Fiber is made with the husk of the oat (the groat). It contains no carbohydrate and helps keep this keto bread recipe super low in carbs.

Vital Wheat Gluten flour contains wheat. This recipe is certainly not for those low carb or keto followers who do not consume grains. Gluten Flour is a low protein flour that is much lower carb than wheat flour. 

Flax meal. I use golden flax meal. Golden flaxseeds are best freshly milled for any low carb baking. Always store in the fridge or freezer after opening as flax can quickly go rancid.

Inulin is used as a sugar substitute for activating the yeast. Sugar or honey can be used in its place to activate the yeast. It should be noted that yeast will consume the carbs from sugar or honey if used. Inulin is prebiotic insoluble fibre sourced from plants. It has sweet properties naturally occurring and can be used to feed and activate yeast as well as be used in baking and sweets. Other sweeteners like xylitol and erythritol will not activate yeast. 

The yeast I use is just your standard dried yeast from most supermarkets.

tips on how to make the best rolls

  1. Activating the yeast. The water must be warm to activate yeast. Add the inulin or sugar/honey to help activate. Cover the bowl with cling film and/or a silicone mat and leave somewhere warm to activate. You will kknow when it is ready as the top will be thick and foamy.
  2. When combining ingredients never add the yeast and salt together. Salt kills yeast. If you follow the list of ingredients in order of the recipe you will be safe.
  3. Knead for a minimum of 5 minutes. The dough should be soft but not sticky. If the dough is too wet add a little more flaxmeal to help absorb the moisture. 
  4. The mix makes roughly 700g total mass. Cut into 10 x 70 g pieces and roll. Watch the video within the recipe for a simple rolling technique.
  5. Cover and place in a warm place to allow buns to double in size. Leave plenty of room on the baking tray for them to rise.
  6. Season. I season with a mix of nigella seeds, sesame seeds, celery salt and onion granules.
  7. Bake and cool on wire rack before slicing and serving.

These buns could be hollowed out and used for mini low carb cob loaves or soup in a bun. Use the soft dough in the centre for dipping. How yum does that sound?

Flavour with garlic and cheese for tasty garlic bread.

Make into hot dog buns for a tasty hotdog

Top with cheese and bacon for a tasty variation.

There are endless possibilities to enjoy these low carb keto buns to suit your own ketogenic or low carb lifestyle.

  • 2 teaspoons inulin

  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup oat fiber click for supplier
  • 1 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten click for supplier
  • 70 g butter cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum


  • Mix inulin and yeast into water and cover with cling film and a silicone mat and leave in a warm place until yeast activates. This can take 20-40 minutes. It should be thick and foamy on top


  • Add all ingredients (in recipe order) to mixer, including activated yeast. Using dough hook attachment knead dough for 5 minutes on a slow speed.
  • Transfer to bench top and knead for one minute until dough comes together. Cut into 10 x 70g pieces. With a slightly wet hand, cup each ball of dough and roll gently into a bun. (See video for quick demonstration)
  • Place each bun on a large baking tray lined with baking paper. Ensure there is plenty of space allowed for the bun to rise without touching others.
  • Cover buns with silicone mat and clean towel. Leave in warm place for approximately 1 hour until buns have doubled in size.
  • Sprinkle bread rolls with sesame seeds.
  • Preheat oven to 170℃.

4. Use a mixture of seasonings in the dough or sprinkled on top for different variations.

  • Lizel Schwartz says:

    In stead of activated yeast could you try instant yeast?

    • Megan says:

      Hi Lizel, the yeast used is instant dried yeast that has been activated to get the loaf rising quicker. Is this the yeast you are mentioning or fresh yeast?

  • Kirstyn says:

    Hi Megan, Can you make this recipe in a bread machine? So activate the yeast first and then pop everything in the bread machine, let it do its thing so knead, rise, knead and then take the dough out, roll into rolls, rise and then bake in the oven? Trying to think of ways to have bread rolls for Christmas. Thanks

    I made a batch and divided the dough. I used half for the most soft and lush cinnamon buns and the other half for a pizza. I used a pizza stone and it was fabulous!

    I love bread! I went on the keto diet and went through withdrawals, until: I found your recipe. It is so good! Great for hamburgers, sandwiches, dinner rolls. Can I use it to make pizza? Any changes? I am still losing weight and I have 1 each day. I also cheated a little bit and only rolled 8 rolls. 3 net carbs rather than 2. Superior Rolls Thank You.

  • Veronica says:

    Can I just need with my hands if I don’t have a mixer with a bread attachment?

  • Eileen says:

    I love the look of this recipe, apart from the 1 1/4 cups vital wheat gluten. I need to be gluten-free, otherwise my knees get extremely painful and I can’t walk.
    So Megan – what can I use instead of the vital wheat gluten, please? “Dr Google” suggested Orgran, who have a product called “OrgraN Gluten Substitute”, but I’m having trouble finding somewhere that stocks it in Australia. IF I am able to find it, how much of this would I need to use in this recipe? Surely not the whole 1 1/4 cups! I do hope you can help.

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Eileen, I am sorry I have not heard of the ingredient you mentioned. I will say that after creating more than 100 other gluten free breads that nothing mimics gluten that is gluten free in a loaf.

  • Corine says:

    Is this recipe asking for one pack of active yeast?

  • Lindsey says:

    What can I sub the almond with?

  • Dale Olstinske says:

    I love this recipe, the bread and buns come out great. I’d like to make cinnamon rolls with a yeast dough. With the addition of more sweetener, do you think this would work?

  • Bec says:

    Hi Megan. With this recipe, can I sub flaxseed meal for almond flour? My son and I don’t like the grainy texture from any type of meal.
