Paleo Herb Dinner Rolls

These rolls have been a huge hit in my house!

Paleo Herb Dinner Rolls

For roughly the last month and a half, my husband and a friend of his have been doing a cleanse of sorts. Now, it is not one of those hardcore juice cleanses. My husband would never survive on one of those, he loves food way too much. I’m not even sure if I should actually call it a cleanse, but a food challenge. It is pretty similar to the Paleo lifestyle, or even the Whole 30 challenge. They have cut out all grains, dairy, sugar, processed foods, and starchy carbs from their diet. Kenny and I both needed to cut down on our sugar consumption anyway, so I half-heartedly decided to join them in this endeavor.

Since I already don’t eat gluten or dairy, it really hasn’t been too hard. I haven’t had too many cravings for chocolate. Well, who am I kidding, I always crave chocolate. I have to admit though, I have eaten rice once or twice when I’ve gone out to eat. And we both have been more lenient about consuming honey. Whatever, call the food police.

Back to the dinner rolls. I made this recipe for the first time on Easter Sunday, when my husband so generously invited several co-workers over for an “Easter feast” without running it by me first. He knew I would be fine with it because because I love to cook for people. But feeding 5 grown men that can eat their weight in turkey is no simple task. The entire meal was gluten and dairy free, and this little roll/muffin/bread concoction was included. The very first time I made them, I followed this recipe exactly. They were really good, and everyone loved them, but I think I realized that I’m not a huge rosemary fan. So I wanted to play around with the recipe a little and maybe use a different herb in the mixture.

I’m pretty sure I’ve made about 6 batches so far in the month of April. The husband is a machine and can go through these babies so quickly. Each time I’ve tweaked the recipe a little, and I think I figured out the perfect ratio!

So, without further ado…

      I’m so glad you made them! I’m going to have to try those herbs the next time I make them :) If your hubby is anything like mine, he will love them too :)

    Well, the herb muffins was a huge hit, hubby said dinner reminded him of the holidays, chicken, sweet potatos & of course the wonderful herb muffins. Our oldest wants to know if the muffins would work for a stuffing? We’ll give it a test run. Thanks again for the good recipe :-)

      That sounds delicious! I’m so glad everyone liked them! And it does work in a stuffing. Go to my recipe page, and look under the bread category, you will find the ‘grain-free Thanksgiving stuffing’. It was a hit with my husband :)

    Hi Candace, thanks for posting so many wonderful paleo recipes! My husband hasn’t eaten any bread in almost two months, after I made your herb muffins he was walking around the house eating ’em & saying, “they taste sooooo good” & now wants to know when I’ll be making more :-)

    Can you give me the nutritional value of the Paleo Herb Dinner Rolls. I need to know how many calories. Thank you.

    You mention baking this recipe in a loaf pan in another recipe (for stuffing). I like this idea. How long? Same temperature (350)? Thanks!!
