How to Make Gluten-Free Dinner Rolls

Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the Paleo flour and salt. What is Paleo flour? Well, our own mix is 1½ cup almond flour, 1 cup arrowroot flour, 1 cup coconut flour and ½ cup tapioca flour. It’s a natural gluten-free flour mix, can work for a Paleo diet and has some good natural fats. It also performs like an all-purpose flour.

In the middle of that flour mixture, poke a hole and add the yeast into the center. Warm the nut milk a little bit (too hot and it will kill the yeast) and pour over the yeast.

Next, add in the softened butter, avocado oil, eggs, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar and stir until the mixture becomes dough-like, around 3 minutes. Use a scraper to ensure all the flour is mixed properly. At this point it should be pretty sticky.

Using a large spoon or even an ice cream scooper, scoop out the dough two tablespoons at a time and roll into balls. Place the balls of dough on the prepared baking sheets. Use a solid spatula to flatten the top a bit.

Cover the rolls with a clean kitchen towel and in a warm place. Allow rolls to rise for about 1 hour.

When that hour is almost up, preheat oven to 350 F. Place rolls in oven and bake for 30 minutes. All ovens are different so don’t remove from oven until golden brown.

Brush the rolls with melted butter, remove from the pan and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container store in an air-tight container. Reheat before serving.

These gluten-free dinner rolls are a delicious addition to any meal. You can serve them at different times, too. These would be delicious with turkey breakfast sausage and eggs for breakfast or alongside a lunchtime salad. Enjoy!
