The temptation to use those store-bought, unhealthy rolls happens because baking fresh bread can seem like such a daunting task. But these gluten-free dinner rolls are worth the effort!


  • 4 cups Paleo flour (1½ cup almond flour, 1 cup arrowroot flour, 1 cup coconut flour, ½ cup tapioca flour)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons rapid yeast/instant yeast
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the Paleo flour and salt.
  3. In the middle of the flour mixture, poke a hole and add the yeast into the center.
  4. Warm the nut milk a little bit (too hot and it will kill the yeast) and pour over the yeast.
  5. Add in the softened butter, avocado oil, eggs, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar all at once and continue stirring. Stir until the mixture becomes dough-like, around 3 minutes. It should be sticky. Use a scraper to ensure all the flour is mixed properly.
  6. 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.
  7. Cover the rolls with a clean kitchen towel and in a warm place. Allow rolls to rise for about 1 hour.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 F when that hour is almost up.
  9. Place rolls in oven and bake for 30 minutes. All ovens are different so don’t remove from oven until golden brown.
  10. Brush the rolls with melted butter, remove from the pan and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  11. Store leftovers in an airtight container store in an air-tight container. Reheat before serving.
