The Ultimate Guide to FatHead Dough

 

You'll see that this low carb and high fat dough is more versatile than you might think! Which is why I decided to add some baking powder to the regular mixture, and see if I could make fat head bread! I figured it would be best to start small with some rolls – and it worked!

Due to the nature of the dough, they do taste a little bit cheesier than regular bread, but it isn't overpowering and the taste and texture is really good. Let me know what you think!

 

How to Make Fathead Bread Rolls

Melt some shredded mozzarella and cream cheese together in the microwave. Next, add almond flour, baking powder and a beaten egg. Stir well to mix.

Once the dough is cool enough to handle, knead it with your hands to get it smooth. If it is too sticky add some extra almond flour, and knead again.

Divide the mixture into 8 parts, and shape each portion into a ball. Place each one on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.

Only tried this recipe once so far but will definitely make more. It's the best keto bread I've tried.

Can you use another flour instead of almond flour? I have an allergy

Hi, if you do not use a microwave, can you melt using stove top? Will it change the texture?

I haven't tried it but as long as the cheeses are full melted, I should think it would be fine. Let me know how it goes!

Hi Georgina! I found your website thru facebook. I am grain intolerant so I was so happy to find this recipe and others for rolls. I have a question for you. With this recipe, you added 2 teaspoons baking powder. With the Easter rolls recipe you did not add baking powder at all. I am wondering what the difference is, if you don't mind. Thank you!
