These low carb cheesy bread rolls are inspired by Weight Watchers’ 2-ingredient dough recipe. Their 2-ingredient recipe is one that I have seen countless times on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a shot this week! This recipe starts with equal parts of plain Greek yogurt and self-rising flour. I first saw this recipe being made for bagels in the air fryer! And later this week, I found out that this recipe is actually incredibly versatile. You can use this dough foundation to make pizza crust, bagels, sandwiches! If any of you follow WW recipes, one post said that this was a 3 point recipe….

How are these Bread Rolls Low Carb?

Because my recipe is made with Kirkland Greek yogurt, there are 18 g of protein per 2/3 cup serving. 1 cup of Greek yogurt is 1.5 x that amount = 27 g of carbs total. 8 bread rolls come out of this recipe which means 4 g protein. As you can read below in the full nutrition label, there are 13 g of carbs per 1 roll!

Ways they can end up not “Low Carb”

Like with any bread recipe, you might end up using more flour than the recipe you find. If you use 1 cup and have to add more flour because the dough is still sticky- then that of course increases the carbs…. If you add cheese or ay other seasoning with carbs, then carb count goes up! But that is okay- you can make these as plain or as zingy as you want! See the possible ingredients to add zing to these rolls. BONUS- you can’t tell when you make them super plain! EXTRA BONUS- With the 1:1 cup ration for the ingredients, these are only 74 calories!
