Best Gluten-Free Pull-Apart Soft Rolls – soft, pillowy, and most addictive rolls you will find. They are that good!

At my house, when it comes to holidays such as Thanksgiving or Easter, rolls are one thing that is a must-have on our dinner table.

easiest gluten-free and dairy-free recipe for soft rolls

In this pull-apart soft rolls recipe, there are no complicated flours, long kneading or waiting for hours for them to rise. The best part, they taste just like real rolls made with gluten.

I wish you could see my kitchen this week, it looked like a bakery. I just had to get the recipe right. I made so many batches I was running out of space. But we have a winner! I promise you that these gluten-free pull-apart soft rolls are the best!

To spruce the rolls up a tad, I added fresh rosemary, but this is optional. Another herb I will try next time I make these pull-apart rolls is thyme. I think it will add depth to these already exceptional rolls.

As with most gluten-free baked goods, these soft rolls are best when eaten the same day. But if you are lucky enough and have some leftover rolls for the next day, don’t dismay.

Slice the rolls in half and toast them – they toast beautifully. Then, fill them with an egg salad or salmon salad and some greens.

These gluten-free pull apart soft rolls make for a leisurely lunch or sandwich on the go. Sometimes I serve them toasted for Sunday brunch with an egg on top, with marmalade or some cream cheese. They are so incredibly tasty!

    Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix first 7 ingredients (dry ingredients)
  • In a medium glass bowl whisk together remaining ingredients (wet ingredients)
  • Using an electric mixer at medium speed, slowly add wet mixture into dry ingredients until a dough forms. Scraping sides as needed. About a minute
  • Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking oil. Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop a heaping scoop of dough and place in the middle of the pan. Continue with remaining dough making 9 mounds in total. Dip your fingers in warm water and smooth out the top of the rolls
  • Cover with a light dry towel and let rise at room temperature for 1 hour. Make sure there are no drafts
  • Lightly brush the rolls with oil and bake at 375 F for 23 - 25 minutes. The tops should be golden brown

      the link for your flour blend does not appear to work nor is there anything under a search. i also have to avoid rice, quinoa and millet and am wondering if amaranth, white buckwheat and sorghum flours will work.

      • Kristina October 23, 2021

        Hi Sila, the links are now working, sorry about that. I have not made these soft rolls with the flours you have suggested, so I don’t know the answer to your question. Buckwheat is a heavy flour so I would try and avoid it, sorghum would work but you will need to add a starch like tapioca flour. But unless I re-create the recipe using these flours I don’t know how the rolls will turn out…sorry

      I am making these for Easter. I made them many times and the rolls are sooo good.

      Hi,

      Is this a mistake? 16 ounces of yeast?

      • Kristina October 3, 2022

        Mark, it doesn’t say 16 ounces, it says one packet which equals 2 1/4 tsp.

      These are sumptuous! As promised, I came back to your recipe. Thank you for the edit you made in the ingredient list. Thank you, too, for not publishing one of my comments but leaving the first as it makes me look foolish. I hope someday to have the entire world see my foolishness for what it is (as this post confirms). I made a few alterations: I proofed and used instant dry yeast and compensated for the water I used in proofing. Of course this added sugar to the recipe, but it was quite complementary. I grow many herbs in my garden but rosemary is not one; I used parsley. And I don’t have sea salt; I used kosher salt. Also, I am not sure what distinguishes gluten free baking powder. I know that it is sold online but going by the ingredient list on my can of baking powder, I feel that it is gluten free.

      Again Kristina, I am grateful to you. Thanks!

      Hi again! I used fresh blueberries today, compensating for the moisture. My wife and son both took time out from their days to tell me how tasty they are! They don’t often do that, particularly my wife who does not usually enjoy my gluten-free baking. Yours has become my go-to recipe for rolls. THANK YOU.

      • Kristina October 18, 2022

        Mark, did you add a sweetener as well? So happy to hear that your family enjoyed them, K.

    • Peter W November 23, 2022

      With or without the rosemary, these rolls have become a staple in my house. If you double the recipe you can also use it to make a very tasty loaf of bread.

      • Kristina November 23, 2022

        thank you for sharing Peter.
