Revolution Rolls and a Bit More

I couldn't quite get too thrilled over the revolution rolls recipe because, to me it was too eggy, and not enough substance.  It was ok but just ok.  In a pinch, it was bread.  It was something to hold my sandwich together--sort of.  But I liked the concept and figured I could work with it a bit. I know many on the Low Carb Friends forum worked on it also.  There's probably a kazillion tweaks out there!  Well, here's another.  This one I did today.  I may still tweak away with this some more yet.  But this was pretty good.  It held together, and it tasted more bread-like and less eggy.  I like that it's light and not a heavy bread, like so often low carb breads turn out to be. It's soft, like bread should be.

                     Revolution Rolls With a Bit More

Recipe By     :Ginny
Serving Size  : 6    
Categories    : Bread

  3         eggs -- separated
  1/4      tsp  Cream of Tartar
  3         oz  Cream Cheese
             Salt -- dash
  1/4      cup  flax meal, Golden
  2         tablespoons  whey protein, Jarrow Formulas -- unflavored (use whatever brand you have)
 1/4      teaspoon  baking powder

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until it forms stiff peaks. Set aside.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Place remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and mix with an electric mixer until well incorporated and smooth.

Gradually fold in the egg whites, 1/4 of it at a time until it is all folded in well, but not broken down.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or use silicone pads, lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Plop on spoonfuls of the mixture until you have 6 blobs.

Bake for 35-55 minutes depending on altitudes, or until done and lightly browned on top.  Mine took 47 minutes.  After 30 minutes check them often.  Every oven is different.

  1. Hi Ginny. I'm trying your rolls today. I haven't made the revolution rolls yet. I am wondering was I supposed to put the yolks in this recipe? Thanks, Joanne

    1. Yes, add them with the remaining ingredients. Hope you like it! :)

    2. I should of said that I didn't add them. I looked at them in the oven and then looked at your picture and knew they were wrong. Still tasted good though. I ate one warm and it reminded me of the biscuits at the Red Lobster. I'll try again when I get more eggs! Thanks for the recipe. Joanne

  2. I'm glad they still tasted good for you! :) Thanks for sharing.
