INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. xanthan gum, leave out if your flour already has it in it
  • 1 ¾ tsp. rapid yeast/instant yeast
  • 1 ¼ cups warm milk (110°F-115°F), dairy-free - use almond, cashew or coconut milk made with the NutraMilk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened, regular or dairy-free
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsps. unsalted butter, melted (regular or dairy free)

For almond milk

  • 1 cup (150g) almonds
  • 1 quart (946ml) water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

For almond Milk

  • Start by making fresh almond milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense, open spigot and fill your container with almond milk.
  • In a large bowl add the gluten-free all-purpose flour, buckwheat flour, salt, and xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it).
  • Add the yeast to the gluten-free flour mix by making a little hole with your finger in the flour and pour the yeast into the hole.
  • Warm the milk to 110°F-115°F. If your milk is too hot it will kill the yeast. Pour warm milk over the yeast.
  • Add the softened butter, eggs, apple cider vinegar, and honey to the bowl and mix until fully combined. (2-3 minutes). The dough will be sticky.
  • Spray two 9 inch cake/pie pans with gluten-free cooking spray. You can use metal pans or a glass pan.
  • Using an ice cream scoop place the dough balls into the pans. Spray your ice cream scoop with gluten-free cooking spray to help the dough not stick.
  • Take a small spatula and smooth out the tops of the dough.

  • You should have 8 dough balls around each pan and 1 dough ball in the center. This recipe makes 18 rolls.
  • Cover the pans with a kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

  • Pre-heat your oven to 400°F.
  • Bake the rolls on the middle rack for 14-16 minutes. They will turn a nice golden light brown. Please watch your oven because all ovens are different. The temperature of the rolls, it should measure 200°F internally.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush the tops of the rolls before serving. Alternatively you can brush with egg yolk before cooking. Enjoy!
  • The rolls are best when eaten warm. If you have any left-overs store in an air-tight container and reheat before eating.
