This dough creates bread that is the closest to regular bread that I have tasted in almost 2 years. It's quick and simple to make and doesn't use a bunch of odd ingredients. I add a tiny bit of sweetener because it give the bread that natural subtle hint of sweetness found in regular whole wheat type breads. If you are Paleo, you can use a little stevia or your favorite sweetener (equivalent in sweetness to about 2 tablespoons of sugar). It doesn't make it sweet, but simply gives it a subtle undertone. I like to use a little Swerve because that is my personal favorite low carb sweetener. I snapped a few photos as well as the easy peasy recipe. For any of you looking to make meals ahead of time and freeze, I can attest that this lasagna freezes and reheats well for up to 4 months. Here is the link to the lasagna recipe: Lasagna w/ Grain-Free Noodles. The recipe for my Perfect Dinner Rolls is below. There is nothing about my meal this evening that appears to be wheat, grain and gluten-free and nothing about it that tastes that way either. Now THAT is what I call win/win! Enjoy!
Perfect Dinner Rolls: Wheat/Grain & Gluten-Free
Makes about 1 dozen
3 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
3/4 cup blanched almond flour
3/4 cup PLUS 2 tablespoons golden ground flaxseed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
Sweetener equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar (stevia or granular Swerve)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons melted butter
Optional: coarse salt, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, for sprinkling on top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium sized bowl, mix first 7 ingredients together with a whisk to help break up any lumps.
In a small bowl, beat eggs, buttermilk, olive oil and vinegar together. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until combined and a thick dough is formed.
On a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet, use a 3-tablespoon sized retractable scoop to place individual scoops of dough on baking sheet, spacing approximately 1 inch apart. Using slightly moistened finger tips, gently smooth each scoop of dough until evenly rounded. Let dough sit about 5 to 10 minutes to rise slightly.
Bake for approximately 16 minutes or until almost done. Remove from oven; brush each roll with melted butter and if desired, lightly sprinkle with a slight pinch of coarse salt, poppy seeds or sesame seeds. Return to oven and bake an additional 2 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter, if desired.
*If desired, herbs or shredded cheese can be mixed into dough before baking.
Very easy recipe, I have just printed it and I'm going to make them for dinner. I don't have buttermilk now, but I have found out that you can make it with milk and lemon juice. Done!
I have baked them, and eaten 4 of them with butter! Very nice!! Thanks for the recipe.
Hi Sami! So glad you enjoyed them. They are so simple to make...and really taste like bread -- I enjoyed them lightly toasted with my eggs this morning (from my hot dog bun version from earlier in the week). Glad you like them. :-)
Perfect is the correct word for your recipe for these rolls! We love them. My husband eats regular bread and rolls, but is always complaining that the hamburger rolls get slimy and mushy with all of the stuff he puts on his burger. Not these! Held up perfect and stayed in place. Thanks for all of your recipes and great pictures.
Thanks so much -- so glad your "regular bread eating" husband like these, too! Same here with my hubby -- he eat the "regular stuff" as well and loved these, too! :-)
I just made these, they didn't come put as golden brown as yours,I'm going to guess its because I used regular flax seed meal rather than golden. Doe that change the taste as well? They are good though. Can't wait to try your biscuits next ! Yum :) Mindy
Hi Miranda -- Yes, using regular brown flax would definitely make your rolls turn out darker. Golden flax is very light golden colored. It is also much milder tasting too, so it would taste different as well. Some people that don't care for the taste of regular flax actually like the taste of the golden because it is so mild. It's really personal preference though. Not sure if you belong to Sam's Club or Costco -- if you do, you can find a 3-lb bag of organic flax meal there for about $6.99 which is a great price and it lasts forever. Hope you enjoy the biscuits. My favorites are my Cheddar Black Pepper as well as my Buttermilk Biscuits (improved version). :-)
Thank you GG, I do belong to Costco, I haven't seen it but will be on the look out for it. I will look forward to trying both your bisquits!
Hope you find it Miranda -- at Costco it's only $6.99 here for a 3-lb bag and I like it the best for flax. :-)
I think these are my new favorite buns. Going to replace the cheddar ones. Still need to try your buttermilk biscuit recipe though.
Hi Amber! I'm so happy you like these. Let me know what you think about the buttermilk biscuits when you get around to trying them. Thanks! :-)
Just made these for myself. We currently have company and I was planning on having these for my lunch with a salad. We have company at the moment and I fixed a regular pizza for the kids. My two year old and the 16 & 22 year old ate the entire batch! Said it was better than their pizza! Off I go to make some more. Thanks for another great recipe!
Wow...isn't it funny -- you never know what kids will latch on to and like sometimes. Too funny. So glad you are enjoying them. Thanks for letting me know! :-)
I was just wondering if you have figured out the carb count on any of your recipes?
Here's the site I use to get the carb count for the entire recipe. You just plug in the ingredients you use and divide it by the number of servings you get. http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php
Some folks like to use fatsecret.com :-)
Hi, I am new to your site, but love everything I have tried. You have made the transition easier with real recipes that appeal to kids and guys (most of the time)! So, I made these tonight and I knew right away my dough wasn't right, since it was runny and made more like pancake piles. I baked anyway, and they came out just like large pancakes! After reading more closely, it was the flax. I bought from the bulk bins, so it wasn't golden and more like meal. However, they were still very tender and tasty. My daughter and I ate almost all of them with butter smeared on top! Lesson learned, pay attention to the ingredients!
Thanks so much! I'm glad you were still able to salvage the rolls and that you and your daughter enjoyed them. This dough is quite thick when I make it (it stands up in balls of dough on its own). Hope it turns out better and thicker for you next time. I'm so glad you've enjoyed what you've made so far. Thanks for letting me know! :-)
This recipe is wonderful!!! Thank you so much for sharing.
