These AIP garlic & herb bread rolls are the perfect companion to a Sunday dinner or holiday! This recipe is grain-free, egg-free, and fully AIP-compliant.

AIP Bread Rolls

Finally, I’m sharing an AIP dinner roll recipe on the blog! Honestly, I’m so excited about these. I remember the first time that I spent the holidays gluten-free, and then grain-free and I was desperate for a bread roll. Seriously, what’s a big holiday dinner without rolls?!

In the last few years I’ve been trying a few different things but nothing that I’ve been totally blown away by. I like a very specific kind of roll, that has lots of flavor and is higher in fat than most. So I decided to take matters into my own hands, and I am very, very happy that I did! These rolls are paleo, egg-free, AIP, and are just the right balance of flavorful, crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside.

How to make the AIP Dinner Roll Recipe

  1. Begin the dough: Sift the coconut flour, tapioca starch and baking soda together until well combined. Stir in the garlic and herbs. Add in the olive oil and stir well.
  2. Make the gelatin egg: use a small pot and add the water. Evenly sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Allow the mixture to sit until it hardens. Transfer the pot to the stove and set to medium-low heat. Allow the mixture to come to liquid, being careful to not let it burn. Vigorously whisk until the mixture is frothy. Immediately add the gelatin egg to the dough and stir until fully combined.
  3. Bake: Form the dough into 4-5 small, round dinner rolls and place onto the baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-17 minutes or until baked through. Top with salt flakes to taste and serve fresh.

Tips & Tricks for the AIP Dinner Rolls

Use the flakey salt!

Seriously, it makes the recipe. I highly recommend having flakey salt on hand for recipes like this.

Take a shortcut with a spice blend

I really love the garlic & herb seasoning from Primal Palate, and it’s a perfect shortcut for this recipe.

 

Can you make these ahead of time?

They really do taste best fresh, but if you’re going to a holiday dinner and need to bring them along with you, they’ll be fine! I just suggest waiting as long as possible to make them so they’re nice and fresh.

The Ingredients (& possible substitutions)

Tapioca starch

I really like using tapioca starch to create a “bready” texture that actually pulls and stretches. I have not tried subbing arrowroot, but cassava would be far too dense in this recipe.

Coconut flour 

Coconut flour helps to absorb excess moisture and give more structure. I have not tried this recipe without coconut and cannot recommend a swap that would yield the same results. 

Olive oil

You can also use avocado oil but I love the flavor of olive oil! I’m of Italian descent and ate a lot of bread dipped in olive oil as a kid, and this recipe really gives me those vibes. It’s heavy on the olive oil, but it’s really good.
