Keto Pesto Rolls

Credit and recipe goes to jeeves333:

Ingredients: 200g + 60g low moisture shredded mozzarella, divided

75g low fat cream cheese

100g ground almonds

1 tsp Italian seasoning

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp xanthum gum (not completely necessary, but will help with texture)

Salt and pepper

1 egg, beaten

100g pesto

Method: In a microwave safe bowl combine 200g mozzarella and cream cheese – heat on high for 30 seconds at a time, mixing well in between until combined

Add the almonds, seasonings, and xantum gum. Mix well – re heating if necessary

Mix through the egg – the dough may be a bit liquidy at first, but will firm up as it cools

Divide the dough in half, and roll one half of the dough between two sheets of wax paper into a long rectangle (about 1 cm thick). Spread half of the pesto, and top with 30g of the remaining mozzarella cheese. Roll long ways; I find the easiest way to roll is lift the wax paper from under the dough, and roll forward. Roll as tight as possible.

Cut the roll into 4 pieces, and place swirl side up in a baking dish lined with wax paper. Repeat step 4 with the remaining ingredients

Bake in a pre heated oven at 180C fan for 40 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Enjoy!
