One of the best things about these breakfast rolls is the fat content. Each roll has about 9 grams of healthy fats. As you likely know, fats are essential on a keto diet as they are your body’s main source of energy. When you eliminate carbohydrates from your diet, you need to increase your consumption of fats so that your body can make ketones. Ketones are then burned as fuel, giving you the energy you need to start the day. Our recipe for ham and cheese breakfast rolls has fat in the form of cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, and also ham.

The almond flour used in this recipe also adds some healthy fats to the rolls in addition to having other nutritional benefits. Almonds are high in vitamin E, plant-based proteins, fiber, and unsaturated fats. When you bake using almond flour as the main dry ingredient, you may notice that the baked good is a little more dense than normal. Due to all those healthy fats found in almonds, baked goods will be more dense than usual but that is a good thing! It actually makes the roll more filling and hearty. And isn’t a filling and satisfying breakfast what you want?
Our recipe calls for pre-cooked ham which you can easily find in any grocery store. You will usually find ham in a large, thick slice that you can then chop yourself into small cubes before mixing it into your dough. If you cannot find a thick slab of ham already packaged, check the deli counter and ask for it to be cut for you. You can always use thinner, deli-sliced ham as well. One thing you should definitely be aware of as you shop for ham is to avoid honey baked ham, maple glazed ham, or any other ham that may have hidden carbs. Opt for a low sodium ham that is dry roasted or simply baked with no seasonings to ensure that it is low carb.
It only takes about ten minutes to put these rolls together and, once you take one bite, you will be hooked! Bake a big batch and store some of the rolls in an airtight container in the freezer- you can defrost them anytime you need a quick, delicious, keto-approved breakfast. Enjoy!
