Substitute the butter and milk with a non-dairy, plant-based product to make dairy-free dinner rolls.

These homemade rolls would be delicious with just about everything. My husband even used one instead of a hamburger bun and was nearly drooling after every bite.

To Make Easy No Knead Homemade Dinner Rolls, You Will Need These Ingredients:

  • Dry active yeast ~ for corn-free, use Red Star packets, not in bulk.
  • Sugar

  • 1 tbsp Slightly rounded dry yeast ~ Red Star packets for corn-free
  • 2 tbsp Sugar ~ optional beet sugar if needed ~ unbleached for corn-free
  • 1/2 cup Water ~ 100-110 degrees F.
  • 4 1/2 cups All-purpose flour ~ unbleached for corn-free
  • 1 cup Milk ~ Lukewarm non-dairy if needed
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Butter ~ or non-dairy if needed
  • 2 LG Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Butter ~ melted for glazing ~ dairy-free if needed


  • Add 1 tablespoon sugar and dry yeast to a small bowl.
  • Heat water to 100-110 degrees F. and pour into the bowl with yeast stirring just to mix. Let sit 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl add the flour, salt, and remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Add yeast mixture, warm milk, melted butter, eggs into the flour mixture.
  • Mix well until completely combined using a fork or dough whisk. I used my favorite tool…Mix ‘N Masher.
  • Cover bowl with a clean dry kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours. If needed rise for 2 hours, but I've never needed to. Sometimes 1 hour is enough.
  • Remove the towel and punch the dough down.
  • Dust your work area with flour and dump the dough right on top. I use a scraper to help remove the dough, as it tends to stick to the bowl.
  • Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Dough will be very soft and somewhat sticky so lightly flour your hands as needed to shape dough into balls.
  • Place dough balls into a 9 X 13 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • The dough balls will be touching.
  • Very very lightly brush a small amount melted butter (1/2 tbsp)over the rolls to prevent plastic wrap from sticking.
  • Cover rolls with plastic wrap leaving room for the rolls to rise. Then cover with a kitchen towel and let rolls rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 390 degrees F.
  • Remove towel and plastic wrap and bake rolls for 15 minutes.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter. Let rolls sit about 5-10 minutes then remove rolls from the pan by lifting with the parchment paper.
  • Enjoy!
