Almond Flour Dinner Rolls - paleo, dairy-free, low-carb roll recipe that is healthy and gluten-free

When I was a kid, a meal was not a meal without bread or rolls. In fact, when I was a kid, every meal was basically bread…or rolls.

Having eaten a whole food diet for over a decade now, it is very rare I crave bread at this point. But when I do, man oh man, IT IS ON.

These almond flour dinner rolls definitely get the job done. They have that comforting fluff, the irresistible crisp, and are even better with a slather of butter and honey.

Plus, they are CRAZY easy to make! No yeast, no waiting for dough to prove, just mix it all up, bake, and you’re on your way to roll heaven.

Ingredients for Almond Flour Dinner Rolls:

Almond Flour: Superfine almond flour is the main ingredient here! It is light and fluffy, making it an ideal grain-free flour. When combined with tapioca flour, I find the texture turns out similarly to regular all-purpose flour.

Tapioca Flour: Tapioca flour lightens the rolls, fluffs them up, and also helps hold them together. If you don’t have it on hand, you can replace it with more almond flour, although the texture will be closer to a biscuit than a roll (still very tasty!)

Baking Soda: Baking soda is the leavener here!

Sea Salt: Imperative in rolls. No one likes a bland roll!

Eggs: Holding everything together and allowing the flours to rise, we use eggs to keep it nice and roll- like. I know some of you can’t eat eggs..unfortunately I think this would be a tough recipe to make egg-less, since grain-free flours require a lot of love to hold together.

Coconut Oil: All we need is a couple tablespoons of coconut oil (or melted butter or avocado oil) to bring the perfect amount of moisture to these rolls.

Cider Vinegar: Cider vinegar reacts with the baking soda to leaven the rolls.

Lets bake them!

How to Make Almond Flour Dinner Rolls:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F

Stir together the almond flour, tapioca flour, sea salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl until well-combined.

Stir together the almond flour, tapioca flour, sea salt and baking powder

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and cider vinegar until well-beaten.

whisk the eggs, coconut oil, and cider vinegar in a bowl

Pour the almond flour mixture into the bowl with the whisked eggs and stir to combine. Add the coconut oil and stir until incorporated into the dough. Note: the dough should be very thick, but hold together easily.

Combine wet and dry ingredients

Roll the dough into a ball, then separate it into 6 equal-sized pieces.

Form a big ball of dough

Roll each piece of dough into a ball, then flatten into a disc shape with a rounded top (make it look like a dinner roll 😉

Form dinner rolls

Place the dough discs on the baking sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds (if desired).

Place balls of dough on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds

Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden-brown on top. 

Optional Step:

If desired, you can combine 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil or butter with 1 tablespoon of honey and stir it together to make a sort of glaze for the rolls. After the rolls have finished baking most of the way (say, after 12 minutes), brush this glaze onto the rolls liberally, then bake another 2 to 3 minutes, until golden-brown.

Can I sub baking soda to arrowroot starch? & coconut oil to ghee or olive oil?

Julia

Hi Ana!

You can use arrowroot instead of tapioca and ghee instead of coconut oil for sure! Enjoy! xo

Looks yummy!

What can we sub for tapioca or arrow root? Also, are there any specific instructions for baking at altitude?

Julia

Hi Denice! I haven't tested it with arrowroot yet, but I suspect the swap would work out just fine! I don't believe you'd need to make any alterations...I bake at 5,000 feet, so I think you should be able to stick with the recipe as written. xoxox
