You guys, I am SO, SO, SO excited about this gluten free dinner rolls recipe today. SO excited! Why? Because it’s freakin-amazing!

They are soft. So, so soft. (Are you sick of “so” yet? I just can’t help it, these rolls have me doing a happy dance.) They also pull apart really nicely, no crumbling, no tearing, no ripping involved.

These gluten free dinner rolls also have a really nice “chew” to them. They remind me so much of my grandmother’s Parker House Rolls, which are a staple at every holiday meal. My husband absolutely loved her rolls and has severely missed them since going gluten free.

He said that these are “just like hers but gluten free!”. Guys, that’s like the highest compliment someone could give right? Some girls like to be told their hair looks nice. I like to be told my baked goods don’t taste gluten free 😉🤣

Gluten Free Dinner Rolls


Two things that I think work really well in this recipe and make it as good as it is: arrowroot and “sweet white” sorghum flour.

Arrowroot is a bit starchier than other gluten free starches (like corn or potato) and I’ve noticed that it can potentially make gluten free baked goods a bit gummier if you use too much in conjunction with xanthan gum. However, it’s perfect in this recipe because it gives these rolls that chew-factor that everyone loves about bread.

The sorghum flour gives lends these rolls a wheat-like taste. My grandmother uses some whole wheat flour in her rolls and I was trying to mimic that flavor. The sorghum flour really does the job well!

This gluten free dinner roll recipe is adapted the same dough that I used for my Gluten Free Blueberry Sweet Rolls. The difference is the sorghum flour but it really goes to show just how versatile the dough is. It’s similar to my Gluten Free Cinnamon Sticks dough too!

By popular demand, I’ve also made gluten free cinnamon rolls using this same dough!

Having a delicious, workable gluten free dough is going to change your lives, guys!

I’m really excited that you guys can add these gluten free dinner rolls to your family meals, they’re a great alternative when you don’t feel like gluten free biscuits. Some meals just need a nice, yeasty roll! And for a nice flavor twist, try my gluten free rolls with garlic and herbs – holy cow they’re good!

Enjoy!

Recipe for Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

Yield: 8 rolls
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

These Gluten Free Dinner Rolls are soft, yeasty rolls that you've been missing. They've got a wonderful doughy texture like Parker House Rolls and are much easier to make than you'd think!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk (heated to 105-110 degrees) - see notes for dairy free
  • 55 grams white rice flour (about 1/3 cup)
  • 50 grams brown rice flour (about 1/3 cup)
  • 65 grams Arrowroot (about 1/2 cup)
  • 30 grams tapioca flour (about 1/4 cup)
  • 16 grams sweet white sorghum flour (2 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons avocado oil
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8x4 inch loaf pan with 1 tablespoon butter (or spray well with non-stick spray). Set aside.
  2. Add the yeast and granulated sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Slowly pour in the milk, making sure the yeast is moistened. Let sit for at least 15 minutes to "bloom" as you prepare the other ingredients.
  3. Add the white rice flour, brown rice flour, Arrowroot, tapioca flour, sorghum flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt to medium bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  4. When the yeast has bloomed (is super foamy), add the honey, egg, and avocado oil. Use the paddle attachment to mix on medium low speed until combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture and mix on low until combined. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl. Then mix on medium (6 on my KitchenAid Stand Mixer) for 1 minute. 
  6. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and form into a ball (dough should easily do this) and turn the dough ball out onto a well floured surface (I usually just flour some plastic wrap). Sprinkle the top of the dough with additional gluten free flour and use a knife to cut the dough into 8 equal pieces.
  7. Use well-floured hands to roll each piece of dough into a ball (best results if you squish/flatten the dough in your hands first THEN roll into a ball). Place the dough ball in the prepared baking pan and repeat with the remaining dough balls - DUST YOUR HANDS WITH FLOUR EACH TIME.
  8. Place the dough to rise in a warm spot (I like mine to rise on top of my preheated oven) and cover loosely with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Let rolls rise for 1 hour.
  9. After rising, brush the tops of the rolls with 1 tablespoon of melted butter before baking. Then bake for 20-24 minutes (depending on your oven). Mine bake in 20 minutes. After baking, brush with 1 more tablespoon of melted butter and then remove from the pan and serve hot or warm.  

Notes

  • For Dairy Free, use unsweetened coconut milk in place of the milk. Brush the pan with oil instead of using butter and brush the rolls with a small amount of oil instead of butter (optional).

These look amazing!!! Is there by chance a good sub for the brown rice flour? We handle white rice well, but sadly my little girl and I have a reaction to brown rice similar to that of gluten and corn.

Omg!! This is the recipe I have been searching for! These roles blew my mind, they do not seem like gluten-free one bit, they totally just seem like a regular wheat flour roll, I absolutely love them and felt like I was not deprived. I was wondering if I could use the same recipe to make it into a loaf of bread rather than individual rolls? Thank you so much! You are a genius! Xo

After taking a bit of these rolls on Christmas, a tear rolled down my face. Since finding out I had a gluten intollerance, I haven't had good, yummy bread. Most bread I've tried falls severely short of the mark. These were amazing and no one else suspected they were gluten free. A total win and a recipe I plan to keep/make again. P.S. I doubled the recipe with no problem.

Absolutely love this recipe! I use all white rice flour in place of white and brown mixed because I didn’t have any brown rice flour. I also used unsweetened flax milk in place of milk and it turned out beautifully!
