My favorite recipe for gluten free dinner rolls got a new flavor upgrade – Everything Bagel Seasoning.

These gluten free dinner rolls are pillowy soft and have a beautifully browned exterior. They’re buttery and so flavorful thanks to the generous sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning mix that’s sprinkled on top before baking.

What You Need To Know About Making Gluten Free Yeast Rolls

With the right blend of gluten free flour (what this recipe calls for), you can make shaped dinner rolls. Unlike most gluten free roll recipes out there, this gluten free bread dough is firm enough to handle.

It won’t resemble cake batter and you don’t have to use a scoop to scoop it into your pan. Your gluten free dough should be soft but pliable, similar to a soft playdough.

What is in Everything Bagel Seasoning?

Everything Bagel Seasoning is a spice mix blend that is made up of white sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, dehydrated onion, black sesame seeds, and salt. It’s a delicious blend that can be enjoyed on baked goods or even on meat.

I love this blend sprinkled on top of these rolls, bagels, biscuits, and baked chicken breast. Trader Joe’s makes a really popular Everything But The Bagel Blend. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, it’s available on Amazon.

Everything Bagel Seasoning is sometimes referred to as Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. If you see that, it’s the same thing.

Ingredients for Everything Bagel Rolls

  • Active Dry Yeast – be sure to use active dry yeast and not instant yeast. I prefer Fleischmann’s.
  • Granulated Sugar – just a small amount helps feed the yeast.
  • Milk – see below for dairy free
  • Gluten Free Flour – these rolls are made with a mix of White Rice Flour, Brown Rice Flour, Arrowroot, Tapioca Flour, and Sorghum Flour.
    • I buy my gluten free flours at Thrive Market on auto-ship. Both the Bob’s Red Mill and Thrive Market brand flours have yielded excellent results.
  • Xanthan Gum – a necessary binder. I only use Bob’s Red Mill Xanthan Gum.
  • Baking Powder – aluminum free
  • Fine Sea Salt
  • Honey
  • Egg
  • Avocado Oil – or neutral oil of choice
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning – I use Badia Everything Bagel Mix which is gluten free

Gluten Free Dairy Free Rolls

To make these rolls dairy free, use unsweetened coconut milk beverage or oat milk (or your favorite dairy free milk for baking) in place of the milk. Use oil or Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Vegan Butter in place of the regular butter.

Equipment Needed to Make Homemade Dinner Rolls

How to Make the Best Gluten Free Rolls Recipe

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8×4 or 9×9 loaf pan with softened butter.

Step 2. Add the yeast, granulated sugar, and warm milk to the bowl of a stand mixer. Let the yeast bloom for at least 15 minutes. While the yeast is blooming, whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

Step 3. To the yeast, add the oil, egg, and honey and mix until combined. 

Step 4. Next, add the flour mixture and mix on low until combined. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl. Then mix on medium speed for 1 minute.

Step 5. Form the dough into a ball, turn it out onto a floured surface, and divide it evenly into 8 balls. Using floured hands, shape the balls by rolling them smooth.

Step 6. Place the shaped dough into the baking pan. Cover and let the rolls rise for 1 hour. (see tips below for rising in a warm place.)

Step 7. Bake the rolls for 20-24 minutes until golden and baked through. Cool the rolls in the pan for 5 minutes then remove and cool on a wire rack or serve immediately.

Tips for Making this Gluten Free Dinner Roll Recipe

  • To help the rolls rise, preheat your oven to 170 degrees F while you prepare the dough. Once the dough is prepared, turn off the oven, cover the rolls, and proof in the warm oven.
    • You can also let the rolls rise on top of the oven while it’s preheating.
  • Use a Instant Read Thermometer to check the temperature of your milk before adding it to the yeast. Too hot and it will kill the yeast. Too cold and it won’t activate the yeast.
  • For best results, measure your dry ingredients by weight.

How to Store Gluten Free Rolls

Gluten Free Rolls are best when eaten the day they are baked. They can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for 1 night and are best if heated for a few seconds before serving.

For longer storage, these rolls are best when frozen. Wrap well in plastic wrap and then freeze in a freezer-safe bag.

Defrost at room temperature or reheat from frozen by wrapping the rolls in aluminum foil and heating in the oven at 350 degrees until warmed through.

Everything Bagel Gluten Free Rolls Recipe

Yield: 8 rolls
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 22 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 52 minutes

Classic, soft gluten free pull-apart dinner rolls get a flavor upgrade with Everything Bagel Seasoning. These rolls pair well with any holiday meal!

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 (or neutral oil of choice)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2-3 teaspoons Everything Bagel Seasoning

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x4 or 9x5 inch loaf pan with 1 tablespoon of softened butter. 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 a 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 speed for 1 minute.
    6. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and form into a ball. 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, pat it into a square, 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. Place the dough ball in the prepared baking pan and repeat with the remaining dough balls – dust your hands with flour each time to prevent sticking.
    8. Place the dough to rise in a warm spot and cover loosely with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Let rolls rise for 1 hour.
    9. After rising, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and brush the tops of the rolls with it. Sprinkle the Everything Bagel Seasoning evenly over the tops of the rolls.
    10. Bake for 20-24 minutes (depending on your oven).
    11. Let the rolls cool in the pan for 5 minutes then remove to cool on a wire rack or serve immediately.

Notes

  1. For Dairy Free, use unsweetened coconut milk in place of the milk. Brush the pan with oil instead of butter and brush the rolls with a small amount of oil instead of butter (optional but it will help them brown).
  2. To help the rolls rise, preheat your oven to 170 degrees F while you prepare the dough. Once the dough is prepared, turn off the oven, cover the rolls, and proof in the warm oven.
  3. These rolls are best eaten the day of. If baking ahead or storing leftovers, wrap the rolls tightly in plastic wrap and freeze them in a freezer bag. To reheat, remove the rolls from the plastic wrap and wrap them in aluminum foil. Heat in the oven at 400 degrees until heated through.
