There are the Magic Rolls, which have gluten in them, but tasty. Then there are the Oopsie Rolls, which are gluten and grain free! These are an easy alternative for buns. This is the recipe by Jamie of Your Lighter Side.
The nice part about this recipe? 3 ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
You need 2 mixing bowls. Separate the eggs, putting the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another. Do not get any yolks in the whites or they won’t beat up. Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites.
Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks:
In the other bowl with the egg yolks, add the cream cheese:
Now comes the folding. Kind of like a souffle, which is sort of what these are. Add 1/3 of the whites to the yolks and stir in to lighten up the mixture a bit.
Bake at 300 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Do not over bake.
Store in a single layer in the fridge. Let them come up to room temperature before you use them to keep them from sticking.
The verdict? They are a little on the bland side, but that could be cured with adding some flavor to the batter (I would add it to the yolks). I did not flavor these as I wanted some with peanut butter.
They are somewhat delicate in texture, a little foamy, if that makes sense. Very light. I have done these in the past with cocoa powder and a little stevia to make chocolate ones. I think these would be awesome to make a tiramisu or trifle dessert.
My batch made 8 rolls. Each roll has 54 calories, 4 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of carbs, 0 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein.
Basically just puffs LOL! I definitely prefer my coconut flour biscuits, but these are a much lower calorie sub.
