For the longest, I didn’t think it was possible to make delicious bread rolls without eggs. I was so wrong. I made these easy buttery vegan rolls taste even better than traditional rolls.
Is there anyone that doesn’t love bread? I’m so glad that we as a society (well most of us) have stopped believing that myth that you can’t eat bread. For many years, people would say, oh I’m not eating bread because (insert reason here). Yet, go to any restaurant and you most certainly will see the bread basket disappear. I don’t think I’ve ever been out to eat and not eaten the free bread.
So, due to the fact I love bread so much; I wanted to make my own easy buttery vegan rolls recipe. A few months ago, I made some rolls with tapioca flour. They were delicious, but not as good as these. I am currently working on a delicious gluten free version of these rolls. I’m going to have to find some gluten free self rising flour. I’ve made dinner rolls with all purpose flour and I don’t think they taste as good as these rolls. Also, you can totally use bread flour for this recipe. I think dinner rolls made with bread flour would probably taste better than these rolls made with self rising flour.
How to make easy buttery vegan rolls:
These easy buttery vegan rolls are actually pretty easy to make. First off, add some yeast to a bowl with salt, sugar, and warm milk. Allow this mixture to foam. This begins the process of making the rolls.
Next, add in your flour! As I mentioned above, I used self rising flour. I strongly urge you to stick with using flours that are used to make bread. Don’t use flours like coconut flour, almond flour, or chickpea flour because the texture will not be bread-like.
After adding your flour, keep mixing until a dough forms. I like to use a stand mixer for making dinner rolls because I’m lazy. Although, I’ve made dinner rolls without a stand mixer before. Rather than getting your hands dirty and taking all day to make the rolls, just use the stand mixer. But, if you do not have one, then you certainly can get the job done without one.

After forming the dough, allow the dough to rise. You allow the dough to rise because the rolls need to be large and easier to handle. This step just makes your rolls so much fluffier compared to just making the dinner rolls right away.
After allowing the dough to rise, pick pieces of the risen dough a part and form into balls. I like to toss them and roll them back and forth using my hands. You actually can roll these rolls into whatever shape that you desire. Remember you’re gonna have to allow these rolls to rise again!
Lastly, you need to bake them! I bake my rolls first without any butter because I want to make sure that they’ll be soft inside. And after pre-baking them for 15 minutes, I remove them from the oven and pour melted butter on them. I proceed to bake them for another 5 minutes because I like my rolls a little crusty. Also, this step is optional and you can just pour the butter on them after they’re done baking the first time!

Easy Buttery Vegan Rolls
- 2 cups Macadamia Milk, warm
- 2 tbsp Active Dry Yeast
- 1/4 cup Monk Fruit Sugar (or white sugar)
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 6 tbsp Earth Balance Butter, softened
- 2 Egg Replacers From Bob’s Red Mill
- 6 cups Self Rising Flour
- 1/4 cup Melted Better, for pouring over the rolls
- Heat up the macadamia milk in a microwave safe cup or bowl for 1 minute. Add yeast, sugar, and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer. Prepare your egg replacers.
- After heating the milk, add the milk to the yeast, sugar, and salt mixture. Allow this mixture to sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture foams. Add the softened butter, egg replacers, and 6 cups of flour. Turn your stand mixer onto level 3 (or medium speed) and allow to mix until a dough begins to form for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, the dough should be soft and all of the ingredients should be combined. Use a spoon to scrape down any left over ingredients and then allow the stand mixer to continue mixing the dough for an additional 3 minutes.
- Spray a large (really large) bowl with cooking spray and place your dough into the bowl. Cover with a towel and place into a warm area. Allow to double in size for at least an hour.
- Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray. Punch down the dough, pull a part pieces of the dough and form into rolls (roll the dough into balls!). Place into the pan and cover with a towel. Allow to rise for an additional hour.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove from the oven and top with melted butter. Place back into the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool before serving.
- If your home is as warm as mine, it will take less than an hour to rise. You can begin to use the dough once the dough has completely doubled in size.
- Place left overs into zip lock bags and freeze. You can microwave the rolls for about a minute or place into the oven at 350 for around 3-5 minutes.
