Easy Gluten-Free Dinner Rolls
Easy, Soft & Fluffy and Delish!
December 2020: These Easy Gluten-Free Dinner Rolls are perfect for the holidays! And so easy make! Watch me make the on a cooking video on this page!
So excited for you to try these Easy Gluten-Free Dinner Rolls!
My son has been asking me to make a dinner roll for a while now and we perfected it a few weeks ago and have been making them on repeat ever since!
They are soft, fluffy and bread-y— like a real dinner roll should be.
And they are amazing straight out of the oven, but still taste great hours later and can be microwaved just a few seconds for that just out of the oven feel even a day later!
Best part? They are super EASY to make!
We have been making them on repeat!
And I’ve added a cooking video here to this page for you to see how easy they are!
All you need is:
Gluten-free all purpose flour (we used GF Jules, affiliate link)
Gluten-Free Rapid Rise Yeast
apple cider vinegar
As an aside, you may have noticed that we are affiliate for GFJules. To learn more about why we love GFJules flour and why we have used it for 10 years, click here. Bonus: at the bottom of that post is a one-time use affiliate Discount Code.
And importantly, purchasing through an affiliate link does not change your cost at all. It generates a small percentage of the sale for me, and purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!
Back to the Gluten-Free Dinner Rolls...
And they are remarkably easy to make!
First you mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Meanwhile heat over low heat, the water, milk and melted butter until 110 degrees F with a kitchen thermometer. It’s not too hot and it heats up quickly! If it heats up significantly more than that, remove from heat and let cool a moment.
Then add apple cider vinegar to the warm mix.
Then add warm wet ingredients and egg to the dry ingredients, and mix to combine. At this point, I’m using the paddle attachment of the Kitchen Aid (Amazon affiliate link).
Then once well combined, switch to the bread or hook attachment and mix for 6 minutes! Set the timer!
Then the dough is ready to be formed into balls, placed in a well oiled pie pan and rise!
The dough will be a bit sticky but pliable.
The dough rises best when warm (hence the warmed milk/ water) and moist, so I like to oil my hands to shape the rolls and then cover then with an oiled plastic wrap as well as a clean towel.
After 30 minutes, they will double in size and fill out the pie pan.
And all that’s left to do it bake them!
After 30 minutes, they’ll be golden on the top, soft & fluffy on the inside!
Optional, but I like to lightly brush the with melted butter after they come out of the oven for an extra golden look.
You could also add an egg wash prior to baking them.
After a few minutes, you can pull them apart and serve them straight out of the pan or break them into individual rolls in a bread basket!
How amazing is it to have a bread basket of real gluten-free bread rolls?!
Hope you love them as much as we do!

Generously coat a 9 inch pie pan with oil of choice (we used olive oil)
In a large mixing bowl, add 2¾ cups gluten free flour, rapid rise yeast, baking powder, salt and sugar, and mix to combine.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, add water, milk and melted butter. Heat until 110 degrees F with a kitchen thermometer. Remove from heat.
Add apple cider vinegar to warmed water/ milk mix and stir to combine.
Add warmed wet ingredient and egg to the flour mix. Using a paddle attachment, mix to combine, about 30-60 seconds.
Switch to a bread or hook attachment and on medium speed mix the dough for 6 minutes (set your timer!). NOTE: At 4 minutes, while dough is still mixing, add extra 1 tablespoon of flour. Dough will be sticky but pliable.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop batter into 9 balls and place each ball into the well oiled pie pan with one in the center and 8 around the edges, forming balls with your hands. Pro tip: put a little oil on your hands to keep dough from sticking to you while forming shape, and lightly spread oil on each ball of dough.
Cover dough with well oiled plastic wrap, then cover with a clean towel and place in a cupboard for 30 minutes to rise.
Near end of the 30 minutes, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
After 30 minutes, dough should rise and double, filling the pie pan. Remove towel and plastic wrap and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden on top (center will be about 200 degrees if you want to check with your kitchen thermometer).
Remove from oven and brush lightly with melted butter.
Let cool a few minutes and enjoy!
Can be reheated the next day in the microwave for a few seconds for that just out of the oven feel. Or can be frozen after baking, then dethawed and reheated in microwave.
