Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls (egg white, keto)

These make great slider buns!

  • 442ml water (1 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp)
  • 1 ½ tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 150g egg white protein powder
  • 2 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 tsp Redmond real salt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (54g) allulose
  • 3 tbsp (24g) arrowroot powder (optional)
To add after whipping:
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (36g) butter powder
  • 3 tbsp whole egg powder
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Prepare a half sheet size cookie sheet by lining with a silicone liner or parchment paper and spraying with cooking spray.

  3. Prepare an ice cream scoop by greasing with coconut oil and placing in the refrigerator until it is time to scoop the batter.

  4. Add the water to the bowl of your stand mixer and sprinkle the gelatin over the top.
  5. Add in the egg white powder, cream of tartar, salt, allulose and arrowroot, if using.

  6. Start the mixer with the whisk attachment on low speed. Gradually increase the speed until full. Mix on full speed for 3-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form.
  7. In a small bowl mix together the butter powder and the whole egg powder.
  8. Reduce speed to low and stir in the butter powder mixture just until combined and no lumps are left.
  9. Using your ice cream scoop, portion the batter onto the pan, making 24 rolls.

  10. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

  11. Remove the rolls from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before diving in!

Arrowroot adds a nice texture and flavor but can be reduced or eliminated for a lower carb count.

Butter powder can be substituted with mct oil powder for a dairy-free version.

3 tbsp of whole egg powder can be substituted with 1 tbsp of yolk powder

Note: I do not count allulose in the carb count since it does not get absorbed by the body like regular carbs do.


The brilliant idea of using an ice cream scoop to portion out these rolls came from Amy: Carnivore’s Angel and her fabulous hawaiian roll recipe: https://youtu.be/eocS8_b2j-o
