This recipe uses a combination of only water, yeast, sweetener and Carbquik Baking Mix to make low carb and Keto yeast bread dinner rolls with only 34 calories and 1g net carb each.
I got up early this morning and I’ve been baking up a storm ever since. I decided to try my hand at making some real yeast bread dinner rolls. Low carb, obviously.
I decided to go with the Carbquik Baking Mix for these rolls because it’s the closest thing to real flour that I’ve found so far.
Carbquik is made from wheat, so it makes sense that it would behave the way that real flour does. I am not sure what kind of voodoo they work on the flour to make it low carb, but each 1/3 cup serving has only 2g net carb. Pretty impressive.
Now, I like a sweet dinner roll, so I added in some sugar-free sweetener.
And it worked out really well. The rolls have just a hint of sweetness. I should warn you though, you’ll see real sugar on the ingredient list, but don’t flip out. It’s something that the yeast needs in order for it to ferment properly. But all of the carbohydrate is consumed during the process. And at the end of the day, you’ll have a batch of tasty low carb dinner rolls with only 34 calories and 1g net carb each.
Yep, these dinner rolls are real beauties.
