  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese grated (I used Cabot Vermont Cheddar)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup unflavored whey protein powder or egg white protein powder
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white

Garlic Butter

  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line an 8-inch round baking pan with parchment paper. 

  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the grated cheese and the butter. Melt on high in 30 second increments until the cheese and butter can be stirred together and is almost liquid.

  3. Add the coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt. Stir in the  eggs and egg white and use a rubber spatula to "knead" together in the bowl until uniform. 

  4. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. The dough will be quite sticky so lightly oil your hands and roll into 8 ball. Place in the prepared baking pan.

  5. Whisk together the ingredients for the garlic butter and brush about half of it over the rolls in the pan.

  6. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until puffed, golden brown, and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool  about15 minutes before removing from the pan and breaking apart. Brush with the remaining garlic butter. Serve warm.
