    The last time there was a HP Rolls scare I decided to make my own and @AvocadoSevenfold gave me the recipe below. I make rolls by hand rather than a loaf in a breadmaker. I prefer my rolls to the Lidl ones and I must have made about 20 batches by now. I have tweaked the recipe but the one I have attached is the original.

    I have now found a version of the same recipe with a little more information and I have added a conversion from cups to grams in case that helps.

    I leave out the bran and the Splenda. I use normal porridge oats instead of oat flour. I have increased the water to about 320ml. I add mixed seeds sometimes. You don't have to knead the dough much, just enough so that it is combined. I divide the dough into 8 rolls and put them on a baking tray in a warm place for about an hour to rise, then without touching them bake at 190C for 20mins.

    This is the basic recipe that I use, which I found on this forum. It tastes like bread.

    I have just spoke to lidl customer services. They have been getting lots of calls from diabetics about them being discontinued. The agent thought that more feedback might help their retun to stores.

    I had a look at the Gabi recipe a while back but got put off by the Splenda. Thanks for putting it up, I will have another look and try again, with "personalisation" aka tweaks. I really want to get a bread machine recipe going as it seems so much more convenient than making your actual bake-in-the-oven loaf, even if it does deprive the spiders of a home.
    The last loaf is nearly finished - Dear Hubby is helping out as he says it is quite tasty, bearly like packing material at all!

    I take it you noticed that I don't add the Splenda, it's bread not cake. I make rolls as I freeze them and thaw one a day for my lunch.

    I’ve just spoken to someone in Lidl Customer service, I rang them on the number posted above. I asked them why the rolls aren’t on the shelves, and was told it’s a manufacturing issue. They say they are extremely popular and they have been getting LOADS of calls about them from disappointed customers. They said that they hope the disappearance of the rolls is temporary, it hasn’t been their decision to stop selling them, rather that it was out of their control as the manufacturers stopped supplying them. They are hoping to get a replacement but couldn’t give a timescale for this.
    Honestly, the more phone calls they get about this, the better, it might make them speed things up although I think they are realising just how popular they are with diabetics because nowhere else sells anything quite like them.

    I have just got hold of some Sainsbury's Hi Lo bread. It contains 15.6g of carbs and a massive 24.7 of protein. I slice has 5g of carbs and 8.1 of protein. The fat content could be higher at 8.7g per 100g - 2/8 a slice so I will be using t with a load of butter or cheese on it!! It will do as a substitute for the lidl rolls until they return @ £1.75 for a 400g loaf
