Keto Vegemite Scrollsare a favorite snack in Australia. They are simple enough to make in under 30 mins and taste delicious. This vegemite recipe replica has been on my mind for the past few weeks, but finally, I perfected the recipe during the week, and I’m happy to share with you this fantastic snack that could easily be made into a quick meal for on the go lunches.

Keto Vegemite Scrolls - Australian Ketogenic Recipe (1)

These cheese and vegemite scrolls are so delicious, that I ate the entire batch within the same day I made it, so caution if you’re making these just for one person. Divvy them out into portions so that you are not tempted to devour the entire batch all at once, and have vegemite scroll regret.

Vegemite is a black spread that is very popular in Australia. Most countries have a certain product that they are proud to show travellers, but Australia has vegemite… It’s seriously cringe-worthy if you have never tried it before, but much like all good things, the love for vegemite comes with an acquired taste.

Vegemite scrolls are usually made from puff pastry, so a simple replacement for puff pastry on the ketogenic diet is what is called a “fathead” base. This is a mixture of mozzarella cheese, egg and almond flour. It’s used mostly as a pizza base, but I’ve used it for cinnamon scrolls as well!

If you really wanted to, you might even be able to create a pie top with this style of fathead cheese base, but beware it’s much higher in calories compared to a regular sheet of puff pastry, so I’d make the pies smaller.

Australians love vegemite, and Australians love food. It happens to be a very good source of both B vitamins and sodium chloride, both important on the ketogenic diet.

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Maybe I’m just a vegemite freak, but I’m okay with that!

  • 2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp Almond Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Vegemite
  • 2 Tbsp Cream Cheese


  • Place 1 cup of mozzarella cheese into the microwave safe bowl and heat for 90 seconds.

  • Add the egg and almond flour, and mix with a fork. Roll out between two sheets of baking paper to make a slightly thick square sheet of cheese

  • Cook for 10 mins at 180c (355f)

  • Remove from oven and allow to cool (I cooled it quickly by putting the baking paper back on top and rubbing the surface with ice blocks)

  • Mix the vegemite with the cream cheese until it becomes a consistent paste. Spread over the cooled cheese from the oven, and sprinkle with the remiaining mozzarella cheese

  • Lift one edge of the cheese base and roll up. Slice into 6 peices and place them horizontally on the baking pan. Cook for another 2-5 mins in the oven just so that the cheese melts inside, but the base remains structually intact.

  • Serve and enjoy!

    Doing this with a Mayo Tuna O-O Looks so good my mouth is watering (I don’t have vegemite on hand and never will sorry :p … ) but just this idea is pure genius!! so versatile to wrap anything


  2. Eliza Hartin says

    If I’m only cooking for myself, could I leave some uncooked in the fridge and freezer for cooking on the day I eat them.


  3. Olivia says

    These are really delicious ? Maybe even better than the real thing…Thanks for sharing!


  4. Elizabeth Wilson says

    Hi can it be made in a microwave because I don’t have an oven. I need to know how this can be adapted to microwave.


    • FatForWeightLoss says

      Hi Elizabeth, to be honest, I haven’t tried sorry.


  5. Jacque says

    Wow, I just made these and yep – ate the whole batch. Oops. They are fantastic! Thank you


  6. Elizabeth says

    Just a note. Iactual vegemite is not gluten free. There are other brands that are OK, but none as good as the real thing. Mmmmm


    • FatForWeightLoss says

      You are correct. Vegemite is made from yeast extract, which is usually from barley (which contains the protein gluten). Get the gluten free version if this is important to you 🙂


  7. Linda says

    Can you please add the macros as missing.


  8. Kathleen Bray says

    I found Vegemite on Amazon and see that it’s a yeast extract. These look like cinnamon rolls, but apparently are savory and not sweet. What other uses are there for Vegemite, since I’d have to buy a whole jar of it to try this recipe.


    • Chloe says

      Vegimite is a popular savoury spread in Australia, traditionally used on toast with lots of butter-
      use sparingly!! Don’t spread thick as is quite a strong flavour. goes well with cheese and avocado
