You don't need to visit the bakery for these delicious oatmeal rolls. You only need about half an hour and a few ingredients, most of which you probably already have at home. And this includes neither flour nor yeast.

Oatmeal is not only great in porridge or as overnight oats, but it's also excellent for baking. The advantage: oats contain many healthy fats and are gluten-free – ideal for people with gluten intolerance.

Thanks to the quark or skyr and grated carrot, these small rolls turn out wonderfully moist and, due to their high protein content, are also filling for a long time. But not only the roll itself, but also what you put on it, influences when you'll feel hungry again.

Sausage, cheese, and jam are tasty but not very imaginative. There are so many ways to bring a healthy variety to your roll. Here, we've gathered some of our favorite spread recipes for you:

Quick Rolls with Oatmeal

Ingredients for 4 rolls:

  • 1 egg (size M)

  • 120 g fine oatmeal

  • 100 g grated carrot

  • 270 g skyr or low-fat quark

  • A pinch of salt

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • Optional: sesame, sunflower, or pumpkin seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit) for conventional ovens. Line a tray with parchment paper.

  2. Peel and grate the carrot (e.g., with this grater from Amazon*). Then mix with the rest of the ingredients. Note, the dough will be quite sticky. Form into 4 rolls and place on the baking tray. Slightly cut the surface with a serrated knife. Optionally, sprinkle with sesame or pumpkin seeds.

  3. Bake the oatmeal rolls for about 25–30 minutes until they have a golden brown color. Let them cool before serving.
