This healthy casein free, gluten free rolls recipe is compliments of Dr. Claudia Pillow. It compliments her article on how to heal a leaky gut.
Below is a bread recipe free of common allergens but high in flavor. Each roll contains more than 3 grams of fiber (10% recommended daily intake) and almost 600 milligrams (50% of the minimum recommended daily intake) of anti-inflammatory omega-3 oils due to the chia seeds, oats and whole grain gluten-free flours. Chia seeds are a nutritional bonanza in a tiny package. Each tablespoon contains 65 calories, 2.5 grams protein, 4 grams of fiber and 1755 milligrams of omega-3 oils, plus they are chock full of antioxidants and alkalizing minerals such as phosphorous and manganese. Good health can be delicious and gluten-free. These rolls have a crispy crust, a delicate inside and a wonderful wholegrain flavor. I love them toasted and of course fresh from the oven. Enjoy!
Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Egg Free Rolls with lots of fiber!
- 1 cup gluten free oat flour
- 1/2 cup teff flour
- 1/2 cup sorghum flour
- 1/2 cup potato starch
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 4 Tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 packet (1/4 oz. each) dry yeast granules (not quick rise)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons water (110°F)
- Spray a 12-cupcake baking pan with baking spray and sprinkle with corn meal.
- Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl of electric mixer. Pour warm water (110°F) and olive oil into mixing bowl; mix until just blended. Scrape bowl and beaters, and then beat at high speed for 2 minutes.
- Scoop dough for rolls into prepared cupcake pan with an ice cream scoop. Cover with a light cloth and let rise in a warm place (about 80°F) for 40-50 minutes, until dough has slightly more than doubled in size.
- Place shelf in center of oven. Preheat oven to 400°F while gluten free rolls are rising (do not use a convection oven).
- Bake in center of preheated oven for 15-25 minutes. Rolls should have a hollow sound when tapped on the sides and be light golden in color. Instant read thermometer should register about 200°F. You can bake them longer to make a thicker crust; the color will deepen, and the internal temperature will continue to rise. Remove rolls from pan and cool on a rack. Rolls can be stored in refrigerator for up to two days or freezer for up to three weeks; wrap well in plastic wrap and then foil. Refresh rolls with a sprinkle of water and rewarm in 350°F preheated oven; wrap in foil if you do not want a crisp crust (but open the foil for the last five minutes). Or microwave gluten free rolls for 15 seconds and then lightly toast.
