Protein Sparing Orange Sweet Rolls

Protein Sparing Orange Sweet Rolls

I recently had a phone client named Amy mention on one of our calls how she remembers Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls. Amy and I have had many phone consults and she is even joining me on my Keto Italy trip of a lifetime next June (click HERE to learn more!)

As we were talking, I said, “Amy, I am going to create a Protein Sparing Bread Orange Sweet Roll just for you!” Amy loves my protein sparing bread so I know she will love these!

  • 2 tablespoons butter flavored coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons powdered allulose
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger


  • 8 ounces cream cheese (or Kite Hill dairy free cream cheese), softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered allulose or erythritol
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract


  • 2/3 cup powdered Allulose or Swerve
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract


  • Orange zest


  • To make the protein sparing bread orange rolls, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place a piece of parchment onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Spray parchment with Avocado oil spray and set aside.
  • Separate the eggs (save the yolks for another recipe like my keto ice cream, hollandaise, mayo or lemon curd), and place the whites into a large bowl or stand mixer. Add the allulose, salt and cream of tartar if using and whip the whites for a few minutes until VERY stiff.
  • Turn the mixer to low and gently mix the egg white protein powder into the whites. Do not over mix or the orange rolls will end up like styrofoam. Gently stir in the orange extract.
  • Spread the protein sparing bread orange roll mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until just cooked through (NOT browned at all).'
  • Meanwhile make the filling mixture by placing all the ingredients into a small bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Remove pan from the oven and use a knife to spread with the filling mixture. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 6 strips (cutting from the longer end of the baking sheet). Roll each strip into a roll. Set the rolls into a greased 9 inch pie pan.
  • Place back into the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile make the orange glaze. To make the glaze, place all the ingredients into a small bowl and use a fork to combine well.
  • Remove the orange rolls from oven and allow to cool a bit before topping with the orange glaze. Garnish with orange zest if desired.
  • Store extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

“I have had life-threatening terrible asthma since I was 11 years old and I also got hypothyroidism at the same time.  This should have tipped off doctors-endocrinologists-specialists I have been to over the years that the asthma was the result of an autoimmune related disease.  No one had ever brought up that I could be Celiac.  I had been hospitalized multiple times for asthma and would routinely get asthma related pneumonia 3-4 times per year which would keep me very sick and out of breath for 6-8 weeks each time.
After I eliminated grains/gluten in 14 months,  I knew my asthma had disappeared but the test I took yesterday showed that my lungs now have returned to normal!  Doctors don’t know ANYTHING about autoimmune diseases!  But Maria Emmerich does! 
If you have any autoimmune diseases in the family at all, try eating keto—check out Maria Emmerich.  I’m still losing inflammation in my body—I can see it in the pics I take (which I’m not posting on here🤣).  14 months later, I’m still losing inflammation…so grains are not something you can eat occasionally and still have the same results.  You have to cut it out completely.  It’s absolutely worth it, my joints are no longer sore, I have tons of energy, I can breathe again—there is no food worth eating to trade for the health benefits I’m getting.“ Jamie

Most people I consult are doing keto totally wrong. Get fast results with the my Mind-blowing Keto School!
