How to Make Keto Air Fryer Rolls
We are using superfine almond flour as an alternative to flour – which is a bit of a specialty item – but widely available in all grocery stores.
Opt for superfine blanched almond flour for the best texture with these rolls.
- Air Fryer, Ninja Foodi, or Instant Pot with Broiler lid
- Parchment paper
- Superfine Almond Flour
- Basting brush
- Silicone stirring spoon
We have tried to swap out more of our kitchen tools to be silicone as we continue to make more keto recipes – especially when making keto desserts – because it makes cleanup and even cooking easier. A lot of keto recipes rely on cheese and egg, making them a bit stickier than dishes with flour – so opting for nonstick tools helps quite a bit.
Tips For Perfect Keto Air Fryer Rolls
While these rolls are as easy as mix and bake, there are a couple tips and tricks to make perfect rolls – every single time.
Use Superfine Almond Flour. For this recipe, we’re using superfine almond flour to mimic flour – a course flour will be heavier and not give a bread-like lift and crumb.
Use Cold Cream Cheese. To help retain a round shape, we recommend using chilled dough with cold cream cheese.
If you need to let your cream cheese come to room temperature to incorporate when stirring, pop dough in refrigerator for 20-25 minutes to let it chill a bit before baking.
Preheat Air Fryer. For perfect rolls, it really is crucial to have a preheated air fryer. If your air fryer isn’t hot enough when rolls go in, they will melt and spread out, making them more dense.
For the absolute best results: preheat air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and place rolls in. Reduce to 350 degrees to bake.
Use Parchment. Lay down a small sheet of parchment paper in your instant pot to keep rolls from sticking to the air fryer basket.
How To Store Keto Rolls. These keto rolls can be saved in the refrigerator for up to five days in an airtight container. To serve, pop in oven or toaster oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until piping hot. Rolls can be microwaved, but we find the texture best when baked to hot – microwaving to reheat can make texture a bit gummy. Rolls can be frozen after baking – pop in oven from frozen to reheat! You can also slice these rolls in half and pop into the toaster for a tasty breakfast with cream cheese or lox, like our keto salmon toast or keto avocado toast instead of using the sandwich bread!
This recipe can be cooked in an Instant Pot with broiler lid and air fryer basket – or a Ninja Foodi with the broiler lid.
Set Instant Pot at 400 degrees to broil (unfortunately Instant Pot doesn’t go to 450 which we prefer, but it still works great).

Keto rolls brown beautifully in the air fryer, and will get browned around the edges when done.
When rolls aren’t fully cooked in the middle, it will appear a bit jiggly and unset – and will have a dense feeling if you tap the side gently. Rolls will feel a bit hollow, and will not jiggle, when fully baked.
