Low-Carb Grain-Free Gluten-Free Bread Rolls

Posted Nov 10 2012 2:04am

I know I’ve kept you guys in suspense here and on Facebook . I even teased you with a pic earlier today on my Facebook wall. So without further ado, let’s get to it!

I can’t take credit for this recipe . It’s the creation of Maria’s Nutritious and Delicious Journal: Toasted Sub Sandwich and Panini !

I made four batches since last week, and only one didn’t turn out well due to omitting the salt . But the other batches were AMAZING!

The latest batch I added in dried onion + dried chives to boost the flavor a little. So good!

I was blown away when I took them out of the oven. The texture is SO.CLOSE to wheat bread that even I found it hard to believe that they’re grain-free AND low-carb.

You can tear a hunk off like a chewy baguette!

Crazy, right?! NO grains! NO gluten! 6 ingredients. Disappointed smile

You will need:

That’s all. Simple, right? Get the recipe here !

I use sodium-free baking powder in these, otherwise they become little sodium bombs when using regular.

You know what surprised me the most? They rose perfectly! And they didn’t drop when removed from the hot oven. I couldn’t believe it!

The batch with chives + onions didn’t rise as much as the plain batches, but still fluffy as can be. I am impressed!

I made hot dog and hamburger buns out of a batch by splitting them in 10 equal portions which came out to just 105 calories and 1.5g NET carb each. WOW!

See how these are a bit puffier than the onion + chive ones? They stay like that!

Look at those gorgeous air pockets. That’s hard to get with gluten-free, yeast-free, much less NO grains.

I knew the recipe by heart after the first batch; It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. The dough feels just like wheat dough, too! It’s stretchy and super easy to work with.

The steps I took to make it:

1. Preheated the oven
2. Added all dry ingredients to my KitchenAid Artisan mixer ; using the paddle, mixed on low until all the ingredients were well-incorporated
3. Added in the egg whites and mixed slowly until a thick dough formed
4. Then, I added in the boiling water and the dough really came to life!
5. Rolled out various bread roll shapes and sizes; placed them on baking sheets lined with Silpat mats and baked as directed

Notes:

  • Follow her instructions! Don’t deviate from the recipe except to maybe add herbs and spices
  • They don’t taste very good without salt added. To reduce the sodium content, definitely use sodium-free baking powder
  • I use liquid egg whites to make life easier. Follow the package instructions for the whole egg white equivalent
  • They taste best hot from the oven or toasted before eating
  • Make a double batch and freeze. You’ll be glad you did.

Whether you’re low-carb, Paleo, gluten-free, all of the above or none of the above, you can enjoy a sandwich again on bread that actually tastes like bread!
