Bread Rolls

Now that Paleo Bread Rolls are an option while following a Paleo lifestyle, I started thinking about all the other breads out there:

  • English Muffins
  • Pretzels
  • Kolaches – Sausage and Fruit
  • Indian Naan
  • Hamburger Rolls
  • Flatbreads

The list could go on…

All breads are now possible with this versatile roll recipe.

I was so reluctant to place a label on them because of the versatility of this recipe.  It truly is the starting point for all Paleo breads.  

Recipe Origins

I started out making Coconut Flour Biscuits all the time.

Maybe it was my excuse to eat my Sugar-Free Jam, but either way, it was a great weekend breakfast.

After being introduced to Tapioca Flour, I started experimenting with my  Paleo Bread recipes and documenting the results from adding it to my recipes.

I replaced some of the Coconut Flour with Tapioca Flour, which altered the texture of the mixture.  Coconut Flour can be very dry and will soak up a lot of the liquid in recipes.

Since I didn’t need the extra liquid since I reduced the amount of coconut flour, I also decided to remove one egg from the recipe.

There you have it…the birth of the Paleo Bread Roll.

Makes 12 Bread Rolls


  • 1.5 cups tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 egg


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the tapioca flour, coconut flour, starch, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add the melted ghee, coconut milk and egg to the dry ingredients.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, mix the ingredients together until it forms a cohesive dough.  If mixture seems too dry, add more coconut milk 1 tablespoon at a time until dough forms a ball.
  5. Dust your hands with tapioca flour, take small pieces of the dough and form small rolls.
  6. Place each roll on a flat baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Repeat for the rest of the rolls, dusting your hands with tapioca flour as needed to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Use Bread Rolls to Make Kolaches

Sausage Kolaches

This might be a Texas thing, but I had to make Sausage Kolaches.

Simply, wrap the bread roll dough around homemade Sausage and bake following the same temperature and time as above.

Simple Biscuits and Jam

Enjoy a simple breakfast with this completely Sugar-Free Jam.  

My favorite is blueberry and a mixture I made with peach and raspberries.
