Gluten-Free Rolls Recipe

  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Yield: 7-8 rolls 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


These Easy Gluten-Free Rolls are made with simple ingredients for the softest, most delicious gluten-free dinner rolls you’ll ever taste! Dairy-Free Option. 


Units Scale
  • 1 cup warm (110F) non-dairy milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons quick-rise yeast (instant yeast)
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 330 to 335 grams (2 to 3 cups) gluten-free all-purpose flour (See notes for flour options)
  • 2 teaspoons (5 1/2 grams) xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 g) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 large egg, room temp
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Proof the yeast to ensure the yeast is alive and active. In a glass measuring cup, heat the milk to 110 F then mix in the yeast and 1 Tablespoon sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes until the yeast is active (bubbly and happy).


Gluten-Free Flour Blend Recommendations: We recommend using the homemade gluten-free blend for the softest rolls. However, the store-bought pre-made Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour (WITHOUT xanthan gum) works well too. For other flour recommendations, see blog post. 

Homemade Gluten-Free Flour Blend Ingredients makes 2 1/2 to 3 cups (335g)

  • 1 cup white rice flour (145 g)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch (60g)
  • 1/2 cup potato starch (70 g )
  • ½ cup sorghum flour (60 g)

Baking/Flour Tips – It’s best to use a baking scale to accurately measure the amount of flour in grams versus cups.

Prep Tip – If not using a stand mixer, we recommend using a hand mixer with dough hook attachments. Knead the dough for 2 to 3 minutes at medium speed. We don’t recommend mixing or kneading by hand. It does work, but the rolls will be much more dense and doughy versus fluffy.
