Sometimes the best inventions happen by accident. Take the Post-It for instance – it completely came up by accident.
That was the case with these dinner rolls. I was trying to make a puff for some low carb cream puffs, but I accidentally added an extra egg to the recipe. I knew that I was not going to the puff that I wanted, but I did not know that I would get this fantastically delicious dinner roll with the perfect consistency. The edges were crispy from the pan and the insides were soft and had give. Everything a dinner roll should be!
I’ve started thinking of so many different variations, and I will be bringing those to you soon, but for now, I will leave you with the basic recipe.
If you try these, please post a picture on any of my social media outlets (twitter, instagram, facebook). I love to hear from you and see your recipe recreations.
- 3/4 C Quest Multi-Purpose protein powder. I like this one because it's unflavored and has a great consistency
- 1/4 C butter, mostly melted
- 1/4 C Vegetable shortening, mostly melted
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 granulated Stevia
- 10 drops liquid Stevia
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, mix together everything except the protein powder, baking powder and salt.
- Once all of your wet ingredients are combined, add in your dry ingredients. Give everything a good stir until it's all well combined.
- Spoon the batter evenly into your muffin tin. You should get 7 muffins out of this batter.
- Bake for 10 minutes in the oven. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. The edges should be golden brown and the top should be set.
