Yet that can feel like a fantasy when you’ve switched to a low-carb diet. </p> <p>Never fear! Keto bread rolls are totally a thing. A <i>delicious</i> thing.</p> <p>And once you get the hang of a few simple recipes and baking tricks, you’ll be whipping up such tasty breads, buns, and rolls that you’ll wonder why you ever went to the bakery in the first place.</p> </section> <section id="section1"> <h2>What Bread Is Okay on Keto?</h2> <p>Traditional bread is a no-go on keto. Loaded with processed carbs from wheat flour and sometimes sugar, it can blow your day’s macros out of the water with just a few bites. </p> <p>However, there are specialty breads designed just for the keto lifestyle that are both low-carb and delicious!</p> <h3>Cloud Bread</h3> <p>Light and airy, cloud bread is a great substitute for sandwich bread that has tons of protein and healthy fat with less than a gram of carbs. It’s also super-simple to make, with just three ingredients: eggs, cream cheese, and salt.</p> <p>Because this low-carb bread is less dense than other options, it’s best eaten on its own or with light fillings. Try it with a smear of peanut butter or with cream cheese and smoked salmon for a delicious breakfast on the go.</p> <h3>Fathead Dough</h3> <p>Another scrumptious keto bread option that’s a little heartier is fathead dough. This classic keto recipe relies on several kinds of cheese to get a denser texture than cloud bread while still staying low carb. </p> <p>It’s amazingly popular among the low-carb crowd because of how versatile it is. While cloud bread is light and airy, fathead dough has the chewier texture we associate with a great baguette or sourdough loaf. That makes it perfect for sandwiches or side dishes—you can even toast it up to make low-carb croutons.</p> <p>Plus, once you master this recipe, you can make nearly any savory baked good you can dream up, from <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/low-carb-soft-pretzel-bites" rel="noreferrer">soft pretzels</a> to <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/plain-fathead-dough-bagel" rel="noreferrer">bagels</a> to dinner rolls!</p> </section> <section id="section2"> <h2>What Is Keto Bread Made Of?</h2> <p>Most keto bread is made from a combination of <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/best-low-carb-flour-substitutes" rel="noreferrer">low-carb flour substitutes</a> and eggs.
