Grain-Free Dinner Rolls (nut and coconut free)

I have been holding on to this grain-free dinner roll recipe for a very long time.  It is one of  the yummiest breads I’ve ever tried, even among the wheat breads I used to eat. I was waiting for a special occasion to share this, or maybe even for a book or an e-book, but my youngest one started kindergarten two weeks ago and since her school has a very strict nut-free policy, this bread rolls have made things much easier. I imagine that there are a lot of paleo parents going through the same dilemma, so this one if for you.

The best part about this bread recipe is that I can make several batches of it at the time and freeze them for later, when I am ready to eat them. I just pop them in the toaster oven for a few minutes and they are as tasty as when they were first baked.

For other bread or wrap recipes, check out my paleo bread, grain-free wrap, or cranberry pumpkin bread.

Grain-Free Dinner Roll
Ingredients:

1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese (use 1 cup of Daya’s cheese for a dairy-free option)
1 cup of organic tapioca flour
1 large egg, preferably room temperature
1/4 cup of softened butter or coconut oil
1/2 tsp of baking soda
salt to taste

Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Using your hand, mix and knead the dough until uniform.
  • If the dough it too dry and powdery you may add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water, if the dough is too sticky add a little bit more flour.
  • Grease or line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with unbleached parchment paper ( I use  this stainless-steel jelly roll pan).
  • Roll the dough into desired size balls. I use approximately 1/4 cup of dough for each ball
  • Place the balls on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the dinner rolls start to brown
  • Eat preferably while still warm.
  • Once baked these rolls can be frozen and thawed in a toaster oven when needed.

  1. So I read this post and immediately got to work on making some rolls of my own! I used cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella and added garlic powder to the dough. I did have to add another egg, but my eggs were a bit on the small side and I imagine my dough was drier since cheddar cheese has less moisture. They are fantastic! Thanks for the great recipe!
