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 will really fill you up, it should be high in protein, anywhere from 15 to 30 grams, because protein is one of the key nutrients that keeps you fuller for longer. Great for breakfast or lunch!

This high protein bread recipe is a great place to start – the rolls contain 10.5 grams of protein before you even make a sandwich! Add eggs, turkey, tuna, lox, or whatever your go-to is, and you’ll quickly meet your protein quota. Your sandwich should contain a balance of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, which will keep you satiated for longer. This bread checks off all the boxes!

How to Make Oat Sandwich Rolls

I’ve been counting macros and looking for ways to get more protein in my diet, which is how these healthy oat rolls happened. I took my trusted bagel recipe and swapped the yogurt for higher-protein cottage cheese and used oat flour instead of all-purpose. The only other three ingredients are baking powder, salt, and egg white. I then rolled the dough into buns and baked them in the oven for 25 minutes. They turned out great!

Variations and Tips

  • Use fat free cottage cheese to make them 4 points each.
  • Refrigerate the leftovers for up to 4 days, then toast or air fry to heat up.

You can stuff these oat rolls with just about anything – from peanut butter and jelly to turkey and cheese. Here are some of my favorite sandwich combos for inspiration, but feel free to get creative!

High Protein Sandwich Bread (Oat Sandwich Rolls) made with oat flour and cottage cheese are high in fiber and easy to make with just five ingredients!

  • 1 cup 5 oz oat flour, plus more for dusting*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder, make sure it’s not expired or it won’t rise
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, use less if using table salt
  • 1 cup low-fat classic cottage cheese, I like Good Culture drained of any whey at the top
  • 1 egg white, beaten (whole egg works fine too)
  • Everything bagel seasoning, sesame, etc for topping, optional
  • Preheat oven to 375F. Place parchment paper or a silicone mat on a baking sheet. If using parchment paper, spray with oil to avoid sticking.

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

  • Add the cottage cheese, mix with a fork or spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles.

  • Knead in the bowl turning until completely smooth and has the texture of playdoh, about 20 turns.

  • Divide into 4 equal balls.

  • Flatten into rounds and transfer to the baking sheet.

  • Top with egg wash and seasoning. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 22 to 25 minutes.

  • Let cool at least 15 minutes before slicing open.

*Check labels for gluten-free, not all oat flours are GF. Use fat free cottage cheese for 4 point rolls.
