Here's what you need to make these almond flour dinner rolls
- almond flour
- tapioca flour
- baking soda
- olive oil
- garlic powder (optional)
These rolls are made with a combination of almond flour and tapioca flour, which gives them the perfect texture. Instead of using eggs in this bread roll recipe, I used dairy free yogurt (any type will work). Honey and salt are used to flavor the bread rolls, as they're quite bland without them. And lastly, olive oil is used to grease the baking pan and brush the rolls. Then they're topped with garlic powder for an extra flavor punch.
How to Make Paleo Dinner Rolls From Scratch
These paleo bread rolls are super easy to make and can be ready in 30 minutes!
First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Then, make the dough by combining the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add in the yogurt and honey and mix the dough until just combined. Note: the dough will be quite wet.
Dust the dough with more tapioca flour and flour the surface you'll be working on. Pick up the dough and roll it into a big ball, then separate the ball into 12 smaller balls. Use more tapioca flour as necessary.
After that, grab a baking dish (I used a muffin pan) and generously grease it with olive oil. Place the rolls on the greased baking dish.
Next, brush the rolls with olive oil and sprinkle them with garlic powder.
Place the almond dinner rolls in the oven and bake them at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. They should come out golden brown (darker on the bottom) with a cracked top.
Serve immediately or keep warm and serve at a later time.
These homemade paleo bread rolls are best stored in the fridge after a day. Place them in a sealed, air-tight container for up to one week.
When you're ready to eat them simply reheat the rolls; either in the microwave or pop them in the oven or air fryer at a low temperature to warm.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can these paleo dinner rolls be made nut free?
Yes! To make these nut free dinner rolls simply swap the almond flour for tigernut flour and use a nut free yogurt.
Can I use any type of yogurt?
Any type of yogurt may be used for this recipe. For example, I have tried these rolls with Kitehill unsweetened almond milk yogurt, coconut yogurt and a plain grass fed cow's milk yogurt. They all turned out fantastic!
Are these vegan dinner rolls?
These dinner rolls are vegan if you swap the honey for maple syrup.
Why are my dinner rolls not light and fluffy?
If you use too much flour, the dinner rolls will turn out hard and dense. The best way to ensure you're using the right amount of flour is to measure the almond flour and tapioca flour by weight (with a small kitchen scale). The dough is quite wet and sticky, but a dusting of tapioca flour makes it easy to work with.

I was hoping to try these rolls, but they are not vegan. Is there a substitute for yogurt that you recommend?
Hi! You can use a vegan yogurt (I did). I like Kitehill almond milk yogurt, but an unsweetened coconut or cashew yogurt should work too.
I made these amazing dinner rolls with almond flour and also I made them with the tigernut flour for my nut free family members and they turned out fantastic! I’m gluten free, egg free and dairy free and haven’t had bread in a really long time that I like and this recipe was super easy and they taste amazing! I’ve been giving them away as gifts for all my friends with dietary issues and they love them too.
Thank you Maria! Your review just made my day - thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad the tigernut flour version turned out well too 🙂

How many eggs would be used to sub the yogurt? Excited to try!
Hi! Not sure that swap will work. This recipe has only been tested with yogurt. Any type of yogurt will work though.
Wow! These were amazing!
Thank you for working so hard to create this recipe.
My boys keep saying “they were so good!”
I cooked them about 22 minutes for a dark golden brown, put cinnamon sugar on some too.
Oh I'm SO glad to hear that!! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving! We made these to go with our meal today. I had to add lots more tapioca just to get it smooth enough to make balls, but they came out great and still tasted so good!
Is pecan flour (or cassava) similar enough to substitute for the almond flour? My husband is sensitive to almond, so I wanted to try it with a different flour. Looking forward to trying your Cassava and rosemary biscuits and apple bagels! Thanks so much for publishing such healthy and delicious paleo recipes! 💕
Hi! I'm so glad you liked them! The dough is supposed to be quite wet, and they actually have a better texture if you don't use too much more tapioca flour - don't worry about them being in a perfect ball. As far as substitutions, tigernut flour should work in place of the almond flour and possibly pecan. Cassava flour will not work though. And thank you for taking the time to comment and leave a review - that means so much to me! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving 🙂
Had these at Thanksgiving dinner….they were amazing!!!
So glad you liked them!!

These are now a weekly staple in our house! Love them. thank you
I'm so happy to hear that! Thank you for leaving a review!
I've made these before and they are absolutely wonderful! My question is could these be bulk made and frozen for later?
I'm so glad you like them! I've never tried freezing them, but if you do then let me know how it turns out.
These are the BEST!! I make them with Tigernut flour and coconut yogurt because I am on an AIP diet and they still turn out amazing! I first made them for Thanksgiving 2021 and they have been requested at all special occasions ever since! Christmas, birthdays, etc. Family and friends without dietary restrictions LOVE them and are the ones requesting them! Best Paleo dinner rolls ever!
Yay!! I'm so glad you love them and that using tigernut flour works just as well! I really appreciate you leaving a review 🙂
These are the BEST! Being grain free and egg free can be such a bummer for bread-y goods but with these I don’t miss a thing. My preschool kids and husband also love them. I sub 1/4 c of flax meal into the almond flour for a little more depth in flavor and it add that grainy flavor of a whole wheat yeast roll. Seriously! Thank you for this recipe.
Adding some ground flax is a great idea! I'll have to try that next time. So glad you and your family love them 🙂 Thank you so much for leaving a review.
Yum!!! THE BEST paleo rolls! My family loved them! Texture is *chefs kiss! My son kept saying how good they were! Thanks Katie, for another delicious recipe! Please come out with a burger bun recipe 🥰
Yay! I'm so glad your family loves them! I'll put a burger bun recipe on my to-do list 🙂
