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.

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 4 tablespoons flax seed flour
  • 2 eggs medium
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup boiling water more may be required


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F degrees
  • Place the coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husk powder, flax-seed flour and salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the coconut oil and eggs and blend well until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar and mix well.
  • Gently add the water, a bit at time and stir into the mixture (you may not need it all).
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Using your hands, make a ball of the dough (I find keeping my hands wet helps with the sticky dough).
  • Place the balls on the parchment paper lined baking tray.
  • Make for 30 minutes until golden and firm.

    Hi Angela, we tried but the rolls turned out bitter. Do you have any idea why? Thanks!

      Was your flour fresh? If not stored correctly or has expired, some coconut flour can turn rancid?

    Hi, just made these – they didn’t rise and they were very dense. Do you think that I should have added more water? They were relatively easy to form into rolls so I’m thinking that my coconut flour absorbed more than yours? They taste OK by the way.

      Coconut flour can vary from brand to brand. They should have rose though. Perhaps add more water and an extra dash of baking powder the next time!

    Sorry Angela,

    It should be I can not take flexseed, so am looking for another ingredient in place of it.

    Hi can I ask when the recipe says 2xEGGS and then 2xEGG WHITES, does this mean four eggs in total?

      4 eggs in total, but only the whites for 2 of the eggs (make a mayonnaise with the left over egg yolks!)

      I’ve never tried it without the eggs. Perhaps an egg replacer?

    I wonder if anyone has tried this with almond flour and butter. I have a coconut allergy and can’t coconut oil or flour.

      I haven’t tried egg replacement so not sure how it bakes. Perhaps add some more apple cider vinegar to the mixture to give it a bit more lift?

    Hi Angela,
    I presume the water is boiling when you are pouring it into to mixture, right?

      Yes it is. I add a bit at a time too, in case the mixture gets too sticky and fluid.

    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. ??

      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.
