Breads/ Gluten Free/ Low Carb

Coconut Flour Bread Rolls

After my delight with the flaxseed bread rolls, I thought that I would have a play with another low carb bread roll and used coconut flour.  The key to these is the psyllium husk powder as they make the rolls more “bread like” and is almost essential in low carb and gluten free baking now!

I was asked if they tasted “coconutty” which I don’t think that they do too much.   I think the addition of the flax-seed flour takes the edge off.  I added it to give the roll an added texture as the mixture seemed to be a bit too wet for my liking. Coconut flour can sometimes have an acquired taste but I’ve made a batch with onion powder and herbs which were delicious.  Perhaps try them plain, then see how you go and add some other herbs and flavours.

Don’t worry if the mixture looks a bit wet, just fashion some rolls the best you can and they will bake fine.  I find using wet hands to do this helps.

These rolls freeze well too!  I’ve started making a weekly batch and pop some in the freezer.  That way I have some on hand if I am having soup or fancy a snack.  Or take out the freezer the night before so I can have one toasted with my morning eggs.

    Hi,
    Jut wondering if you could post some pics of the process of making these rolls. Despite my best efforts my buns don’t rise or end up fluffy like other rolls-they are still delicious but very dense/doughy & more of a dinner roll than a sandwich roll. ??
    Thankyou!

      No problem. I just need to purchase some more psyllium husk powder this week and I’ll put something together. Have you tried the flaxseed bread roll recipe. It’s similar to this and perhaps easier than coconut flour?

          Once you get the hang of baking with coconut flour, there will be no stopping you! I had many a disaster when I first used it. Now, it’s my go to flour. Am happy to answer any queries you have with it!

    These are amazing! I prefer the almond ones, but as our school is nut-free, I make these far more regularly. They taste like proper bread, not just like coconut or eggs, as other breads do. Very yummy. Thank you!

    Loved these coconut flour, psyllium & flax bread rolls! I substituted butter for the coconut oil as I find it a bit ‘sweet’. So quick & easy, Thx Angela.
