Gluten Free Quick Rolls

Gluten-Free-Quick-Rolls


Getting ready for a little cross country road trip so I'm doing some baking ahead of time for the drive and for when we're there. Our gluten free, clean eating diet takes a little advanced planning sometimes, but it's worth it. I didn't want to spend all day working on food to bring though. So I just threw together these little gluten free quick rolls.

Gluten free and quick rolls together in the same title? Yes, but I'll admit these are gluten free rolls. Meaning, as much as I'd love to figure out how to inject the same pillowy light, yet chewy consistency that the protein gluten gives to wheat and rye breads into a blend of gluten free flours...I just can't mimic it perfectly.

It's kind of like eating one of those watermelon flavored candies. Sure it tastes good, but the "watermelon" flavor is seriously nothing like the flavor of actual watermelon. Sorry Jolly Ranchers fans. Likewise, however tasty and filling, these quick rolls are a little more like a biscuit - yummy nonetheless. It'll do the trick when you're in a pinch and don't have time to make a loaf of gluten free bread or you want something to put your Apple Turkey Burger Sliders on. There's really only a couple tricks to getting these simple little rolls tasty and looking good.

Trick #1    Rub some olive oil on your hands before rolling them into balls. It will keep your hands from being covered in dough and the rolls will be smooth (as opposed to those guys in the back that are looking a little rough around the edges. Note to self: re-apply oil to hands every few rolls as needed.)
