Save this so you have low carb rolls for Special Occassions!
1 1/2 cups part-skim low moisture shredded mozzarella cheese
2 oz full-fat cream cheese
1 1/3 cups superfine almond flour*
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 1/2 tbsp aluminum-free double-acting baking powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 large eggs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic minced
1 ½ tbsp olive oil
1 ½ tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8 inch round baking pan or similar sized oven-safe skillet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, and baking powder.
Add mozzarella and cream cheese to a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover the cream cheese with mozzarella (this will prevent the cream cheese from overheating). Melt in the microwave at 30-second intervals. After every 30 seconds, stir cheese until cheese is completely melted and uniform and resembles a dough in appearance (see photo for reference). This should only take around 1 minute total cooking time. Do not try to microwave the full time at once because some of the cheese will overcook.
Add cheese, eggs, and flour mixture into a food processor with the dough blade attachment. Pulse on high speed until the dough is uniform. The dough will be quite sticky.
Scoop out dough with a spatula and place onto a large sheet of plastic wrap. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and knead a few times with the dough inside the plastic wrap until you have a uniform dough ball. Lightly coat your hands with oil and divide the dough into 8 equal parts. Roll each dough between your palms until it forms a smooth round ball.
Roll each dough ball in parmesan cheese. Place dough balls onto a baking pan, spaced 1 inch apart. I placed 1 ball in the center and the remaining 7 balls circling the pan.
Bake rolls for about 25-30 minutes in the middle rack of your oven, or until rolls are golden brown.
While rolls are baking, make the garlic topping. - Add garlic, butter, and oil in a small saucepan. Bring to simmer for about 30 seconds or until butter is melted and garlic flavor is infused into the oil. Stir in parsley. When rolls are finished, brush tops generously with garlic topping. Rolls are best eaten hot.
