This Seeded Keto Rolls recipe is sponsored by our friends at Bob's Red Mill, thank you for supporting the brands that make CIK recipes EPIC!
Seeded bread was never a go-to for either of us, but we've grown to love that chewy texture. For this recipe, we're using sunflower seeds, Bob's Red Mill Hemp Seed Hearts, and their Organic Brown Flaxseed Meal as well. The result is an incredible flavor roll that not only is delicious but provides a nutritional punch as well.
The base of the rolls is obviously the same as the OG recipe, almond flour. We use Bob's Red Mill Superfine Almond Flour exclusively in our baking as it's light and doesn't make Keto baked goods dense like some coarser ground varieties.

Glo Latta says
I don't like the flavor of hemp seeds. Can I just leave those out, or should I substitute a nut/seed that I do like? They look so good and I need some sort of bread replacement to stay keto. Thanks!

Hi Glo, you can just use extra flax or sunflower seeds!

So happy to find these. Excellent taste and great to serve to anyone. Always hesitant to try new recipes due to cost of ingredients but these are worth it. Love the texture the hemp and fiber the hemp adds. I through hemp in a lot of my recipes. My husband has been raving , even to our non low carber people.
