Thanksgiving Challenge: Paleo Yeast Rolls

I case you forgot, I posed a little Thanksgiving challenge for myself and for you all–I asked you guys to tell me what favorite recipes you had for Thanksgiving that are decidedly NOT Paleo, and I’d do my darndest to Paleo-ify them in time for Turkey Day.

I was really excited to see yeast rolls come up because I really do miss fluffy-sweet-yeasty bread loaded with butter.  This was an interesting experiment because the weight of the coconut flour and flax seemed to overwhelm the batter a bit, so next time I might try it without flax and an extra 1/4 c of coconut flour.  But DAMN these had exactly the lightly sweet, yeastiness I was looking for.  They’re incredibly airy and chewy…perfect for soaking up gravy or dipping into morning coffee.  Make sure to have one hot out of the oven with fresh butter!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 c Coconut Flour

1/2 c Ground Flax

1 t Salt

1 t Baking Soda

6 Eggs

1/2 c Butter

1/3 c Full Fat Coconut Milk

3 T Honey

1 pkg Active Dry Yeast

INSTRUCTIONS

In a microwave safe bowl, heat the coconut milk and honey…just make sure it’s not too hot, think warm like bathwater (ewww).  Add the yeast and whisk together, then set aside to allow the yeast to activate.

Combine all other ingredients until well blended.  Add the yeast mixture.

Keeping the batter in the mixing bowl, cover with a most towel and set in a warm place for 1-2 hours (I put mine on a sunny windowsill).  When the batter has risen, stir it up really well so that it returns to its original volume.

Divide the batter between greased muffin tins.  Cover and let rise for 30-40 minutes, or until double in size.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until lightly browned on top.

    This looks awesome, can not wait to try my hand at it. How many rolls does this yield? Just me these days so I would prefer to make a small batch. Thanks, always look forward to your posts.

      I got 9 rolls…you could probably get a few more if you keep them smaller! One definitely overflowed the muffin tins.

    Do you melt the butter first?

      I just had it at room temp so it was soft enough to mix in with everything else

    These r awesome!!!!! I made these today to bring to a friend’s house tomorrow…I couldn’t stop at just 1! However, I would love to make this into a loaf of bread and maybe use it for sandwiches…I have not had a sandwich in forever! Would it b cooked at the same temperature but just for a longer period of time in a full sized loaf pan?
