Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Bread Rolls Ingredients

These rolls contain no instant yeast or active dry yeast, and also no xanthan gum. Because we are not using any fillers, yeasts, or gums in this gluten-free roll recipe these rolls are a bit more dense than standard fluffy gluten rolls. These are similar to biscuits and are made with simple, whole ingredients. This is what you will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups cashew flour
  • 5 Tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 cup boiling water

Another great thing about this gluten-free bread recipe is that you also do not need an electric mixer.

How to Prepare the Gluten-Free Flour Blend

First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Then pour the cashew flour into a large mixing bowl.

Add the psyllium husk powder to the bowl. As an added bonus, did you know that a single serving of psyllium husk powder is an easy way to get a daily dose of dietary fiber?

Then add the remaining dry ingredients to the large bowl.

​Use a wire whisk and stir to combine the dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients.

Next, add the apple cider vinegar to the mixture. We like to use the ACV with the ‘mother’. You can find it online here

Then add the warm water. You can either boil water on the stove in a saucepan or a tea kettle to get it nice and hot.

Baking Gluten Free Bread Rolls 

Line a baking pan with parchment paper and form eight balls of dough. You will see that you are working with a very sticky dough. When forming a dough ball you may want to try using an ice cream scoop or measuring cup to make it a bit easier. This is completely optional. Feel free to use clean hands if you’d like. A slight coating of olive oil on your hands will also help to make this step easier.

Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until golden brown. You can also test the rolls with a toothpick to make sure they are cooked all the way through. Simply poke a toothpick in the center of a roll and as long as the toothpick comes out clean then the rolls are done. If the toothpick is still wet then they need a few more minutes.

Remove from the oven and place in a wire rack to cool. Because there is no yeast in this recipe there will be no dough rise. The rolls will not expand in the oven the way standard gluten bread rolls do.

Any leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-5 days. They heat up easily in a toaster oven and are just as tasty the next day. You can also make a large batch and freeze these gluten-free dinner rolls in a freezer bag and save them for another day.

FAQs and Variations

You can always adjust a recipe to your own personal preference. Doing this may yield different results.

Can I add egg wash or sesame seeds to the tops of the rolls?

Of course, you can. 

Can I use different flours, like brown rice flour or whole wheat flour? 

We are going to have to say no because that would change the recipe completely and we have no idea how that would come out. You could probably find a separate gluten-free rolls recipe with those flours to try.
