How to make Cheese and Green Onion Rolls?


  1. Begin by preparing the onion mixture: Cook chopped green onions with butter, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder, and garlic powder.
  3. In another bowl, microwave mozzarella and cream cheese until melted in 15-second intervals.
  4. Mix the melted cheese mixture with the dry ingredients to create a dough.
  5. Add the cooked onion mix and thoroughly combine.
  6. Shape the dough into balls, place them on a baking mat. Brush each roll with beaten egg and bake for 15-17 minutes until the rolls are firm and achieve a delightful golden brown color.

  • Gather all ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheet with silicone baking mat (parchment paper works as well).
  • Chop green onions and set aside.
  • In a small frying pan, add butter on medium-low heat until melted. Once melted, add in chopped green onions, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Cook for 2-3 minutes until tender and then remove from heat.
  • Combine Almond Flour and baking powder in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
  • In a different large microwavable bowl, add shredded mozzarella and cream cheese. Microwave for 30-45 seconds, take out and stir, then microwave for 30-45 more seconds and stir again. Continue this process until the cheese is completely melted.
  • Add the Almond Flour mixture into the cheese bowl while still warm, quickly knead with hands until dough like consistency and everything is fully combined. If dough cools too much just microwave for a few seconds, take out and knead again.
  • Combine cooked green onions with cheese roll mix. Once combined, separate into 6 equal parts, form buns and place onto a silicone baking mat. Repeat until all the mix is used.
  • Beat egg in a bowl and gently brush onto buns (egg wash).
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes, until buns are firm and slightly golden brown.

  1. Hello! I have all ingredients except cream cheese… Can I substitute it with full fat greek yogurt? Thank you!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hello! Unfortunately, the substitution won’t work. The cream cheese acts as a binder in this recipe, holding everything together. Greek yogurt wouldn’t be able to perform the same role, so the rolls would melt when baked.
