Watching your carbs but can’t resist bread? On a LCHF or Keto diet and miss that bun on your burger? Sick of just eating meat without a starch to accompany it? Here’s the solution. Oopsie Rolls / Bread. Of course it’s not the same as bread, but I find it a reasonable and quick substitute. These rolls/bread was created (not by me) by accident, hence the name of it. Use it as a replacement for foods that you would normally have with bread such as, hotdogs, burgers, sandwiches or wraps. You can even use it as a dessert like swiss rolls, pancakes or crepes. However, there are better keto friendly dessert recipes other than this.
The texture of these rolls/bread is like an overly fluffed up scramble egg. Very soft, spongy, delicate and tear very easily. It’s best to eat the rolls/bread the day you make it.
This is a very simple recipe and you probably already have the ingredients on hand. Psyllium husk is optional but it is a good edition as it is a source of soluble dietary fiber and it gives you a full feeling. It also does not affect the taste of the rolls/bread. Be sure to drink lots of fluids when using psyllium husk. Also, if you do not know about psyllium husk, research it well before using it. It can be bought in any health stores, reformhaus, or amazon.
