Vegan Paleo Fiber-Rich Dinner Rolls

Who says you can’t eat bread if you want to be healthy? With these rolls, you absolutely can! These rolls are a great allergy alternative as they are egg-free, nut-free, gluten-free and dairy-free and they are also low in starchy carbohydrates and sugar while they are loaded with fiber and healthy fats. These also may be a great addition to any diet that needs high fiber foods to improve bowel health. They even taste like a regular healthy whole grain dinner roll without any additives that often accompany many pre-made rolls. Not to mention, these are super easy and quick to make.
