Paleo Grain Free Everything Rolls

paleo everything dinner rolls Let’s face it, I don’t care who you are, when you go grain free or gluten free you seriously miss bread. Some of us more than others. I, personally, miss warm – straight from the oven  – While my hubby misses sandwiches and burgers on bread/buns. It’s nearly Thanksgiving and I wanted to come up with a grain free bread I can serve with dinner, even to our grain eating guests, that is really yummy. The biggest obstacle when trying to make a grain free “bread” is making sure it’s not too dense or wet in the middle – yet the outsides are not over done. By making dinner rolls, instead of a loaf of bread, you get a more consistently baked end result. I also wanted to make these with coconut flour as opposed to almond flour. The feedback I received from my recent recipe for Grain Free Buttermilk Biscuits, many people asked for a replacement for almond flour. And Feel free to omit the “everything” if you just want a plain roll, they are equally excellent!

    I’m obsessed with everything “everything” yet rarely can find it in any form I can eat!

    THIS IS BRILLIANT – I can’t wait to get my hands on some tapioca starch to make these.

    Thank you, thank you! Sharing on my FB page this week. XO SHERRIE

    I used melted butter because I thought maybe the coconut oil would leave too much smell of coconut.

    I am only half way through the baking but they are pretty flat?

    Update soon

      Kiley – they are the shape you make them. These aren’t a yeast roll that will rise. I make nice balls of dough and they puff slightly but the shape doesn’t change while baking/

    These look amazing! In my gluten eating days, I used to love having an everything bagel for breakfast (and I had the belly to prove it!). Can’t wait to give these a try, think I’ll make them tonight.

    Could you sub something for the tapioca starch? I want to make these, but it’s a little last minute and don’t think I can find that in my local stores.

    • Hayley Ryczek says

      Hi Susan – Did you roll/form the dough into balls? They will hold their shape very well.
      I haven’t heard that anyone has problems with this recipe – just compliments. Let me know if you try making them again.

      • Susan says

        thank you…….the mixture was very loose from the start, so i’ll try again and see what happens….I’m sure i could’ve mixed it wrong. they tasted great even though they were flat! we’ve LOVED the GF flat bread recipe as well!

        • Hayley Ryczek says

          Awesome Susan – when You roll them (they will be sticky) make the nice high balls -they may flatten slightly but not much. Let me know how they turn out!!

  5. Dave says

    Measurements for dry ingredients has to be incorrect, made twice and the consistancy was really runny.
    Had to double the amounts of Tapioca, Arrowroot etc in order to form into dough type balls.

    • Hayley Ryczek says

      Dave, I’ve made these over 100 times.. I’m certain the recipe is correct. Are you using coconut FLOUR and tapioca STARCH? what brands of flours are you using?
      coconut flour is like a sponge and will soak up liquids, perhaps you need to let your dough set a few minutes? are you at a high altitude?

    Hi Hayley,

    I’ve recently switched to eating Paleo, and never found a recipe for bread this simple (and with everything in my kitchen cupboards already), so I’m excited to give this a try. One clarification, though – is tapioca starch same as tapioca flour? I’m in the Netherlands, and I’ve only seen tapioca flour in the stores. Wanted to be sure before I try this. Thanks!
