I would describe these gluten-free cheesy garlic rolls as crusty garlic bread with melted cheese in the center. Garlic bread never tasted this good. The tasty gluten-free rolls go especially well with Italian food or hearty stew


  • 2 Tbsp. GF ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. agave syrup
  • 2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour blend, plus some for dusting
  • 1 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/3 cup GF cornmeal
  • 2 tsp. pure sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced, divided
  • 12 (1-inch) cubes of cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup melted butter, divided
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Garnish: fresh chopped parsley

  • Combine flaxseed and ¼ cup of water in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes
  • In a small bowl mix 2 cups of warm water, agave and yeast. Set aside for 10 minutes
  • In a large bowl combine 2 cups of flour, tapioca starch, cornmeal and sea salt
  • Add flaxseed mixture, olive oil, vinegar, three minced garlic cloves to yeast mixture and whisk to combine. Add to dry ingredients and stir until dough forms. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside in a warm place until the dough doubles in size. About 1 hour
  • Brush a 12-cup muffin pan with melted butter. Scoop out about a ¼ cup of dough for each roll. Dust your hands with some GF flour and place the dough in your hands. Place 1 cube of cheese in the middle of the dough and then roll into a ball. Place each ball into the prepared muffin pan. Cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm place for 1 hour
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 F
  • Add remaining minced garlic to melted butter and brush the rolls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish with fresh parsley
