Paleo Herb Dinner Rolls
These paleo herb dinner rolls have been a huge hit in my house!
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!
These paleo dinner rolls are soft and slightly dense, with a little bit of sage for that savory flavor. They are perfect by themselves, but I love spreading a little vegan butter and honey on them.
You can pair them with pretty much anything, but they go perfectly with ALL of these chicken dinners, and of course any type of chili (like this one and this one.)
Paleo Herb Dinner Rolls
- 1.5 cups almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp dried sage
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any unsweetened non-dairy milk)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, sage, salt, and baking soda. Whisk to combine.
- In a smaller bowl, combine the honey, vinegar, coconut oil, and eggs. Whisk to combine, then pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
- Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, and then spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling 3/4 of the way up.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden on top. After you remove them from the oven, let them cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the pan.
Your husband cannot stop RAVING about these rolls! And I have to say… he was reluctant at first, but he did share a small piece… DELICIOUS!!
NICE JOB CANDACE! This website is awesome! Can’t wait to see what’s next!
I’ve been looking for a good paleo muffin recipe that not only goes well w/dinner but also lunches for my hubby, I’ve got the muffins in & also a whole chicken for dinner. I added more spices, crushed dried tyme, herbs de france, the muffin smell & look wonderfu 🙂
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.
Hi Linda, I calculated up all of the ingredients, and there are roughly 160 calories per roll. 162, to be exact 🙂
Can these be made not in a muffin tin? I was hoping to have rolls for thanksgiving
The batter is pretty wet, not exactly like dough. So you won’t be able to roll it out and make rolls. The muffin form is always a hit though 🙂
You mention baking this recipe in a loaf pan in another recipe (for stuffing). I like this idea. How long? Same temperature (350)? Thanks!!
It will take somewhere between 30-40 minutes (at 350) in a loaf pan, so I would check it at about 35 minutes to see it the center is done 🙂
I decided to make the Herb dinner rolls to take to our Thanksgiving family gathering. I followed your recipe to the T, however, in my mind, I did question why the recipe called for 1 1/2 tablespoons of sage. I thought that was may too much, but then, I followed the recipe. I knew as soon as I began mixing the dough that the amount of sage was wrong. The ‘rolls’ (which are more like muffins) were no where near what your photo shows.
Needless to say, the rolls were not a hit, however, being polite, they did eat them. I give this recipe a big thumbs down.
Hi Sydni, oh my gosh, I am SO sorry about that. There must have been a typo because it is supposed to be 1.5 teaspoons (not tbsp). This has been one of the most popular recipes on my site, so I guess other people didn’t catch the typo or just didn’t put as much sage. Again, I am so sorry! I am going to fix the problem right now, thank you for letting me know. I really hope you try making the recipe again so that you can see how it really is a thumbs up.
Thank you, Candace! I totally appreciate your taking the time to respond to my comment. I will try the recipe again with the correct amount.
