Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup warm water about 110F
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup butter melted


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the dry ingredients. Mix on low until combined.
  • In a measuring cup, mix together the wet ingredients.
  • With the mixer running on low, slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high then mix for 6 minutes. This allows air to incorporate into the dough. The dough will have the consistency of cookie dough.
  • Lightly spray a 9-inch pie or cake pan with cooking spray. Spray a #14 (4 tablespoon measure) cookie scoop with cooking spray. Scoop 8 balls of dough into the pan. You may need to spray the cookie scoop in-between each scoop.
  • Use wet hands to smooth out the tops of the rolls. Let rise for 1 hour. During the last few minutes of rising, preheat the oven to 400F. Bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes. The top should be golden brown. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving. Brush the rolls with melted butter. Serve and enjoy!
  • Store leftover rolls in a bag at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat for 15-20 seconds in the microwave before serving.



  • Use a high-quality gluten-free 1:1 baking flour for best results. 
  • A large scoop (#14 or a 4 tablespoon amount) works great to shape these rolls
  • There is no substitute that works quite the same as psyllium husk powder in this recipe. It’s a great binder in gluten-free breads and adds structure. 
  • MAKE IT EGG-FREE: Omit the egg, add 2 tablespoons ground golden flaxseed to the dry ingredients. Increase the water by 2 tablespoons. 
  • MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use vegan butter instead of regular butter.
