Sometimes you just need a warm, crusty piece of bread to make a meal feel complete. These rolls will amaze you with how much they taste like regular bread! They are chewy, crusty, full of superfoods and EASY to make.

If you need a good gluten-free roll recipe to have some crusty bread for dipping in soups or olive oil – this is the recipe you need!

Gluten-free bread dough has a very different texture than regular bread dough. So don’t be alarmed when this roll dough looks more like cookie dough. (See the video to get a look at the texture.)

I bake these rolls in a muffin pan for two reasons.
1. The dough won’t hold it’s shape on it’s own so the muffin pan helps these rolls turn out the right size/shape.
2. Baking the rolls in a muffin pan makes them extra crusty on the outside!

These rolls are full of healthy fats and fiber. The rolls get their chewy texture from a flaxseed/chia seed slurry. These 2 ingredients have elastic properties which bind the roll together and give that good chew bread needs.

I always use highly active or instant yeast when I make gluten-free bread. If you’re familiar with traditional bread-making you’ll know that most breads require 2 rises. However, gluten-free bread doesn’t need an extra rise and one quick rise will do the trick!

For the chia seeds, I usually grind 1 cup of chia seeds into a fine flour in my high-speed blender. Then I keep the ground seeds in a jar in my fridge and use them for recipes like this or for topping oatmeal.

Ingredients

    For the seeds:
  • (Any mixture of seeds to equal 5 tablespoons will work)
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 2 cups warm water, 110F
  • 1 packet highly active or instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing

Instructions

  1. Mix together the seeds in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the dry ingredients until evenly mixed.
  3. In a large measuring cup or bowl, mix together the water, highly active yeast, and maple syrup. Let sit for 3-4 minutes, then add in the ground flaxseed, ground chia seeds, and olive oil. Mix with a fork or whisk to thoroughly combine. Let sit for 1-2 (no more than 2) minutes to form a slurry.
  4. With the mixer running on low, slowly add the wet mixture to the dry. Add 2 tablespoons of the seed mixture. Mix on medium speed for 3-4 minutes. The dough will look like thick cookie dough.
  5. Grease a nonstick metal cupcake pan with cooking spray. Using wet hands or a wet kitchen scoop, fill each muffin cup 3/4 of the way full (see video). Brush the tops with olive oil and sprinkle with the seed mixture. Let rise for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375F. Once the rolls have risen, bake for 35-40 minutes, until they sound hallow when you tap them. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
