Dinner Rolls (Low Carb)

Sesame low carb rolls

These helped me survive the early weeks of carb cravings and bread withdrawal, and I still make a batch every week. With a crunchy crust and light and fluffy crumb, they are adapted from Maria Emmerich’s bread recipe. They are best served warm or toasted, slathered with lots of melting butter.

Note: Because of the psyllium, drink plenty of water with them, and limit yourself to one or two rolls a day. Psyllium has laxative properties, which I have found beneficial on a low carb diet, but it can block the gut if you eat too much or forget to drink.
