Gluten Free Rice Free Multigrain Dinner Rolls

These Gluten Free Rice Free Multigrain Dinner Rolls remind me of what I remember wheat bread tasting like. They are hearty rolls made from gluten free whole grains, yet fluffy and soft. Perfect for sopping up all of that gravy-goodness on your holiday plates!  


Prior to going gluten free, I was a wheat bread girl. I loved the heartiness of it, as well as the flavor. When I finally went gluten free, it took me a while to figure out a bread recipe I really, really loved, but when I did, it was the loaf variation of this Gluten Free Rice Free Dinner Roll recipe: my Gluten & Rice Free Multigrain Bread.

Many readers love that bread recipe, so I knew I needed to covert it to a dinner roll recipe. 


These Gluten Free Rice Free Multigrain Rolls are hearty rolls made from gluten free whole grains, yet fluffy and soft. The whole grains and flax add a nuttiness, while the molasses give it a rich, full bodied flavor. If you aren’t a molasses fan, simply replace it with more honey.  

I think you will be pleasantly surprised how much of a “wheat bread-like” taste these rolls have. 😉

What are your Thanksgiving Day plans? We are having a house full. My brother and his family are coming out, along with some good friends. I’m making a prime rib instead of a turkey, and am looking forward to eating lots of PIE. 😉 I’m making both my Gluten Free Dairy Free Maple Pumpkin Pie, and my Gluten Free Pecan Pie (Refined Sugar-Free, Corn Syrup-Free).

Whatever your plans are, I’d like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. May God bless you and your family over the upcoming year. I pray all of you are surrounded by love and laughter! 
All my love,

And if you aren’t a “wheat bread-like” fan, try my Gluten Free Dairy Free Dinner Rolls that come in 3 flavors: Plain, Rosemary & Garlic, or Onion. These have more of a “white bread-like” taste.

These Gluten Free Rice Free Multigrain Dinner Rolls remind me of what I remember wheat bread tasting like. They are hearty rolls made from gluten free whole grains, yet fluffy and soft


Yeast Ingredients:

  • 1 cup + 3 tablespoons hot water (105-110 degrees F)
  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1 teaspoon organic cane sugar

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup teff flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons molasses (or more honey)
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the organic cane sugar and hot water. Sprinkle in the yeast and give it a quick stir to combine. Allow to proof for 7 minutes (set a timer!) – NO more, NO less time. Make sure to have the other wet and dry ingredients mixed and ready to go when the 7 minutes are up!
  2. Using a heavy-duty mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the sorghum flour, millet flour, teff flour, tapioca starch, flax meal, xanthan gum, and sea salt.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, honey, molasses, and vinegar.
  4. When the yeast is done proofing, add the wet ingredients to the dry. Stir until it’s a little paste-like and then slowly add the yeast mixture. Using the mixer’s low speed setting, mix for about 30 seconds. Scrape the sides of the bowl and then mix on medium for 2-3 minutes or until the dough is smooth. Make sure to stop the mixer and scrape the sides of the bowl if necessary.
  5. Drop the dough using an ice cream scoop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. There is just enough dough for 12 separate rolls, so divide the dough up equally between the 12.
  6. Wet your fingers and use them to shape the dough into circles or fix the minor imperfections (they don’t have to be perfect). Flatten each ball of dough so that it’s approximately 3/4 -1 inch thick (keep wetting your fingers as you go along so that the dough does not stick to them).
  7. Allow the rolls to rise in a warm spot for about 40 minutes.
  8. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). When the oven is fully preheated, bake the rolls for approximately 14 - 17 minutes. They will be slightly golden brown when finished baking, so will the bottom of the rolls.
  9. Remove the rolls from pan and allow them to cool on a wire rack. Cool for at least 15 - 20 minutes before serving.

Would it be possible to make these with a breadmaker as I am unable to stand for any length of time?

Hi Marie, I've never had any luck making gluten-free bread in a breadmaker - so I'm not sure. You might have to experiment with it.

Is there any substitute for the flax?

More sorghum flour, or more tapioca starch. ;)

Your recipes always catch my attention. Seems like they are tried, tested and true everyday favourites that become keepers. Thanksgiving is long over here in Canada, but Christmas is coming up fast and I am thinking both kinds of those rolls and the maple pumpkin pie will make it to the feast. Thanks so much for sharing :)

I am not GF but these sure look like wheat ones. YUM!! I do cook some for the family members that are DF, GF. In fact I got some of the ingredients out to make your apple pie. NO BROWN RICE flour. I was so ticked off. I have been going to try that for a long time.
