How to make flourless gluten-free and grain-free rolls that are made from parsnips

We used arrowroot starch in this recipe but you can use tapioca. The starch provides a soft, tender chew. We personally are big fans of arrowroot starch.

This roll recipe requires no kneading or yeast. Wahoo as we were never good with yeast.

Keeping it nice and simple. Perfect dinner roll recipe for this busy time of year.

Is there a way to make these vegan? Can I replace eggs with flax or chia? Can I replace gelatin with agar?

We honestly not sure how it would work, the reason why is because parsnips are dense. Even with the eggs, so using flax might keep them really dense and moist.

I’d probably try them hot, spread with butter.

Random Halloween question – do you allow Madison to trick or treat, or do you skip it since candy isnt something you ever eat?

purelytwins November 3, 2016 - 11:59 pm

We stayed in but she helped us give out candy to the kids that came to the door. It’s not that we don’t eat candy we just prefer other sweets over it. There are some candies we eat like Justin’s peanut butter cups.

Sadie November 4, 2016 - 11:20 am

Awww, Madison probably would have loved trick or treating!

Were you worries that you would be tempted to eat her candy if she brought some home? You seem so restrictive in what you eat these days and always measuring out your portions and eating the same measured amount as the other twin – be careful because your daughters are watching!

These were delicious! I was skeptical of how they would turn out because the batter seemed a little runny while I spooned them onto the cookie sheet, but they cooked nicely and tasted so good! I will definitely be making these again! Thanks!!

Can I substitute anything for the arrowroot powder? I don’t believe I have any on hand.

purelytwins November 12, 2016 - 10:55 pm

Do you have another starch like tapioca or cornstarch? those could work
