This recipe for dinner rolls is so quick and easy, that you will never go for a store-bought one again. And the best thing about them – they are done in 30 minutes. They are so soft and fluffy and taste amazing. Sometimes, when I have time, I make them for breakfast and they are great while still warm and you spread them with butter. Y-U-M!
I like making my dinner rolls a little ”healthier” by substituting wheat flour with spelt flour, because spelt is much easier to digest, and has a higher content of nutrients than regular wheat flour. But, of course, if you want you can use regular wheat flour, and your dinner rolls will be delicious as well.
In one of my previous posts, Spelt flour No-knead Bread to be exact, I wrote about the benefits of spelt flour for our bodies and digestion. Spelt is a great substitute for wheat if you want to make your baked goods a little bit healthier, but it does contain gluten, so it is not suitable for people with gluten-related disorders.
Because this is a yeast-free recipe, that means that I am using baking powder as a lifting agent. That also means that this recipe is suitable for handling the bigger amount of heavier flours, like rye, barley or even buckwheat flour. When I say heavier, I mean that you can’t use big amounts of these flours in recipes with yeast, because the dough will not rise the way you want, and you will end up with a chewy texture which no one likes.

These Dinner Rolls are No-Fail
In this recipe, I used the same amounts of spelt and rye flour. Actually, that is the way that I make my dinner rolls most often. Sometimes I use barley flour, and sometimes buckwheat flour, and the other times I will use just spelt flour. No matter what I do, this recipe is definitely no-fail, and that makes it worth having in your repertoire.
To make this recipe I use a regular muffin tray with 12 muffin cups. You can find it in almost all supermarkets that sell some of the kitchen stuff. If you don’t already have one, you can buy it on Amazon.
This recipe for dinner rolls calls for 1 cup of milk, but if you want to make it dairy-free you are welcome to use any kind of milk substitute that you want, or even a plain water. I tried all the versions (because I make my dinner rolls on a regular basis) and they turn out fluffy and delicious every time. Sometimes I even use whey, the leftover from making my homemade Greek yogurt. That is the great way to reduce food waste and save some money. Using whey also makes your dinner rolls a bit higher in protein content.
Did you know that making your own Greek yogurt is sooo simple, that once you’ve made it you will never go for store-bought one again? Here is the post with some explanations and recipe for my Homemade Greek Yogurt, so give it a try, and tell me what you think in the comments.
