Rolls. They are the perfect addition to any meal and are one of those comfort foods that we all love to enjoy. After we started eating gluten free 7 years ago, we set out to make gluten free rolls that really tasted good. They had to be soft and fluffy and have a buttery taste.

Our first few attempts at making gluten free rolls were…er…special. They might have resembled hockey pucks more than a roll and they also  might have ended up in the trash.

We kept trying, making tweaks and adjustments over the years until finally we cracked the code. We developed our Gluten Free Crescent Rolls and used that recipe for YEARS! It’s a great recipe that we still make often and works great for recipes like cinnamon rolls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and even pizza.

But sometimes you just want a regular, tall and fluffy dinner roll. One that you can pull apart and slather with butter or make into a sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Ya know?

So we decided that this year we wanted to develop a recipe and publish for gluten free rolls before the holidays hit, so that you can enjoy these rolls too if you’re looking for the same thing. And here it is. As a base, we used Grandma’s dinner roll recipe that has been made every Thanksgiving for as long as we can remember. They are the best rolls you’ll ever eat. 

They’re absolutely perfect with a bowl of Kale and Quinoa Chili or served alongside these Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes and creamy Gluten Free Gravy.

Gluten Free Rolls are Quick and Easy to Make

We made a few tweaks to the original recipe so that we would still achieve all that fluffy and buttery goodness while using a gluten free flour. And they are GOOD. No funky taste, no grittiness, perfectly light and fluffy and buttery. The only difference, really, is that these rolls take only 1 hour to make

If you’re looking for a fun and easy variation, one reader said she adds spices and raisins, then tops with a thick cream cheese frosting to make hot cross buns. We think that’s a great idea! You can read the full comment from Suzy in the comment section below.

With gluten free yeast breads and rolls, you don’t need a second rise. So mix up the dough, shape, rise, and bake. BAM. ready in an hour flat. Be sure to read the directions closely as we include tips and tricks to help make this recipe a success. Keep in mind that we live at an altitude of about 4,000 feet, so you might need to adjust water or flour amounts a smidge based on your altitude. 

We hope that you enjoy these gluten free rolls for holidays and many other meals! If you’re making them for the holidays, they’re perfect smeared with this 15 Minute Cranberry Sauce with Cider and Orange from my friend Brianna at Flippin’ Delicious

Gluten Free Rolls (dairy free option)

Gluten Free Rolls (dairy free option)

These gluten free rolls are perfectly soft, fluffy and so easy to make! Ready in just one hour, they are the perfect addition to any meal and will be enjoyed by everyone, gluten-eaters included! Dairy free option included.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 3 cups high quality gluten free flour (see notes)
  • 1 T potato flakes (NOT potato flour)
  • 1 T gluten free instant yeast, room temperature
  • 3 T sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup powdered milk (optional, but highly suggested - omit if dairy free)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened (see notes for dairy free)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups water, just warmer than room temperature


  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer in order listed. Add the salt and sugar on opposite sides of the bowl.
  2. Mix on low until ingredients start to combine, then on medium for 3 minutes. The mixture will be thick to start and then soften after a minute or so. The dough should be sticky and softer than regular roll dough, more like a sticky cookie dough.
  3. If it is too dry (not sticky, easily handled, or crumbly), add a tablespoon or two of water.
  4. Likewise, if it is too wet (more like banana bread, not able to be formed or handled at all in the next step), add a tablespoon or two of flour.
  5. Because the dough is sticky, you'll want to coat your hands in oil so you can easily handle it. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and form into balls with oiled hands. You might need to re-apply oil a few times.
  6. Place the balls of dough in a 9X13" baking pan and cover the pan with plastic wrap or a light towel.
  7. Allow to rise in a warm location until nearly doubled in size. I heat the oven to 120 degrees, then turn it off before putting the rolls in to rise. You can also turn the oven on to 350 to preheat and set the pan of rolls on top of the stove. This rising period tends to be fairly quick with gluten free rolls, so watch them closely - checking after 15-20 minutes.
  8. When the rolls have almost doubled in size, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 17-20 minutes, until golden brown on top and done inside. If you omitted the dry milk powder, the rolls might not brown as much so check the inside if they aren't browned by 20 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter. These rolls are best served warm but we put the leftovers in a Ziploc bag and they were still soft the next day.
  10. This recipe freezes well.



This recipe was tested with Better Batter flour. This is one of our favorite blends and works very well for all types of yeast breads and rolls.

Other blends that we have tried with different roll recipes in the past (so they should work well with this recipe also) include GF Jules and our homemade flour blend. If using our homemade blend, add an extra 1 tsp of xanthan gum.


Melt is our favorite dairy free butter substitute. We like the taste and texture and recommend using the stick variety. If you have another butter substitute you like, feel free to use it:)

        My first time making these I made them with Bobs red Mill 1to1 flour mix and yeast that I’ve had in my fridge. They didn’t rise very much at all but I baked them anyway , although the texture wasn’t light and fluffy, the flavor was great and I still like them. The next time I made this recipe I followed exactly and they rose beautifully, the texture was great but once they cooled the texture changed to not fluffy and light any longer. That too me isn’t too bad of an issue it’s the flavor of them that I think needs to improve. They don’t have any flavor at all.. I think it’s missing something , the first batch since it didn’t rise at all or very much still had that yeasty flavor which was appetizing. What do you suggest to add so that they have a nice bread flavor.

          Hi Maria! I actually don’t recommend using Bob’s Red Mill for bread/roll recipes, it doesn’t rise well. I use Better Batter or GF Jules. You can try adding a little extra salt and/or butter, and be sure to butter the rolls when they come out of the oven. How long did the rolls take to rise? That might affect the “yeasty” taste.

          I was so excited to see your recipe! My grandson is GF and bread is no longer a staple for him. All the gf breads we’ve tried are dense, very dry and just plain AWFUL! I made a batch from your recipe today and they turned out beautifully!! They were so very soft and fluffy but tasteless. My husband said the same thing. But I see that you suggested that we add more butter or salt. I will try that the next time. I use Better Batter GF flour when I make anything for him as it is the best I’ve found.
          I have also found that if I add a small package of instant pudding to his gf cakes they turn out moist and very good! It really makes a difference!

    As all gluten free flours have different weights can you give the weight of your 3 cups that will help adjust to a different flour. Does your flour mix have xanthum gum in it. If my mix does not is 1 teaspoon the recommended amount?

    These sound amazing!! We’re gluten, dairy, egg, and soy free though(along with peanuts and treenuts). I know what butter we can use but do you think we could use an egg replacer or some other egg substitute? I think trying the powder coconut milk would be a good idea too!

      Absolutely Alysha. I haven’t tried any of those methods specifically, and would vote for honey or coconut sugar first. Any of the options should work though, let me know how it goes and enjoy! Celeste

    So I made them last night, I used the Premium Gold brand GF all purpose flour(flax and ancient grains).
    And used coconut sugar instead of regular.
    They didnt brown(I probably could have toasted them on top with the broiler) , but they came out tasting like wheat dinner rolls! My husband(who refuses to eat gluten free anything) absolutely loved them!
    Definitely keeping this recipe!
    Thankyou for sharing this awesome recipe!

    Is this also wheat free? What does T mean is tablespoon?

      Yes Lisa, everything on our site is gluten free, wheat free, and soy free! And you are correct, T stands for tablespoon. Hope you enjoy, let me know if you have any questions along the way. -Celeste

    It’s 10:00 pm and I just took these out of the oven!! Ohhhhhh, are they ever good! I used Jules gf flour, the best as far as I’m concerned. I’m just thrilled that they turned out so good. Thank you for a great recipe!

    I had to use more like 4 cups of flour to keep it from being sticky

      Hi Judy, the dough is supposed to be sticky, gluten free dough does better that way.

    How do you freeze this recipe? Do you freeze the rolls after you bake them or do you freeze the dough? If you freeze the dough, it is before or after it rises?
    Just made these and they were very good!!

      So glad you enjoyed them! I haven’t tried freezing before baking, I always freeze after.

    I am making these this evening and was wondering if I prepare the yeast beforehand and add to bowl?

      I don’t proof the yeast beforehand, I just add all the ingredients together and mix!

      Sorry for the confusion Geneva, T stands for tablespoon in all my recipe, tsp for teaspoon. Hope you enjoy the rolls!

    I haven’t even tried these yet as plain dinner rolls. I have simply added spices and raisins to the dough and frosted with thick cream cheese frosting to make Hot Cross Buns. I think you should suggest it as a variation. They were delicious and really simple to whip up.

    i made some of these for myself and they were so delicious! my mom is paleo so she couldn’t have them, so i decided to replace the powdered milk with coconut milk powder, coconut sugar instead of normal sugar and instead of butter i used palm shortening and they turned out amazing!! i was hesitant that it would turn out to have a coconut taste but i didn’t taste any coconut!!! thank you!!!

    Made with King Arthur’s measure for measure, and with coconut cream. All the kids loved them. Thanks!!! Been looking for a biscuit recipe for quite a while.

      This sounds great! Did you use all the original recipe ingredients and add the coconut cream? How much coconut cream did you add?

    I made these exactly as you indicated, and they actually seem to be real rolls! Two question though. One, how do you get the tops of yours so smooth looking? I oiled my hands. Mine look craggy. Two, do you think I could make these smaller to serve with Thanksgiving dinner? They seem a little too big for a bread basket with such a big dinner. I could roll them smaller, I assume, and use two smaller pans for baking, and take less time for baking. Do you think they would be as plump and bread-y? I just ate one of my most misshapened ones and they are so good! Thank you!!

      So glad you are enjoying the rolls Alene! Try to make a round ball and tuck in the edges underneath so the top is smooth – does that make sense? Feel free to make them smaller, you can still bake in the same size pan, just keep an eye on them as they will probably not need as long of a baking time.

    Hi. I made these today, and they are delicious! I have two questions. One, yours are smooth on top and mine are craggy-ish. How did you get them flat? Two, do you think that I could make the rolls smaller without a problem? I am serving them in a bread basket on Thanksgiving, and they seem a little large for such a heavy meal. Would it compromise the tenderness of the inside of the rolls? Thank you! I plan to eat this batch all by myself! Lol!

    Hi, was wondering if anyone has had success making these with an egg substitute? These look fantastic and I would love to try them out for Thanksgiving for our extended family with allergies. I have to prepare dishes to be gluten free, soy free and vegan!
