High protein bread (oat sandwich rolls)

There's nothing more convenient than making a sandwich when you need something portable to enjoy on the go. But to make a sandwich that really fills you up, it should be high in protein, between 15 and 30 grams, because protein is one of the most important nutrients that will keep you full longer. Ideal for breakfast or lunch!

Protein-rich oat rolls with all the bagel spices

This high protein bread recipe is a good start – the buns contain 10.5 grams of protein before you even make a sandwich! Add in eggs, turkey, tuna, salmon, or whatever you like and you will hit your protein quota quickly. Your sandwich should have a balance of protein, fiber, and healthy fats to help you stay full longer. This bread checks all boxes!

How to make oat sandwich buns

I've been counting macros and looking for ways to include more protein in my diet. This is how these healthy oat rolls were created. I took my tried and true bagel recipe and swapped the yogurt for protein-rich cottage cheese and used oatmeal instead of all-purpose. The only other three ingredients are baking soda, salt, and egg white. Then I rolled the dough into buns and baked them in the oven for 25 minutes. You turned out great!

Variations and tips

  • Use fat-free cottage cheese to get 4 points each.
  • Chill leftovers for up to 4 days, then air to roast them to heat them.

You can fill these oat rolls with almost anything – from peanut butter and jelly to turkey and cheese. Here are some of my favorite sandwich combinations for inspiration, but you're welcome to get creative!

High-protein sandwich bread (Oat Sandwich Rolls) made from oatmeal and cottage cheese is high in fiber and easy to prepare with just five ingredients!

  • 1 Cup 5 ounces of oatmeal plus more for dusting *
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder, Make sure it has not expired or is not rising
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, Use less if you are using table salt
  • 1 Cup low-fat classic cottage cheese, I like good culture drained from any whey on top
  • 1 protein, beaten (whole egg also works well)
  • All bagel spice, Sesame etc. for topping, optional
  • Preheat oven to 375F. Place parchment paper or a silicone mat on a baking sheet. If you're using parchment paper, spray oil on it to prevent it sticking.

  • In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt together and whisk well.

  • Add the cottage cheese, mix with a fork or spatula until well mixed. It looks like little sprinkles.

  • Knead in the bowl until everything is smooth and has the texture of Playdoh, about 20 turns.

  • Divide into 4 equal balls.

  • Press flat in rounds and place on the baking sheet.

  • Wash the top with the egg and season. On the bake upper rack of the oven for 22 to 25 minutes.

  • Let cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

* Check the labels for gluten free, not all oatmeal is GF. Use fat-free cottage cheese for 4-point buns.
