30 MINUTE ROLLS RECIPE

Makes: 6 rolls

30ml (2 tbsp)  cream cheese

250ml (1 cup)  mozzarella cheese, grated

1 egg

250ml (1 cup) almond flour

60ml (¼ cup)  ground golden flax seed (rather grind fresh because flax goes rancid very quickly. You can use your coffee grinder.)

2.5ml (½ tsp) baking powder

¼ tsp salt

Method:

  1. Combine the cheeses and melt in the microwave for about 1½ minutes on high.
  2. Stir them together until smooth.
  3. Add the egg, making sure it is incorporated  into the cheese.
  4. Add the rest of ingredients and knead into a dough.
  5. Shape the dough into six small balls.
  6. Bake at 200°C in the oven for 20 minutes.
