Ingredients You’ll Need

  • self-rising flour – this is a mixture of all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt which allows these dinner rolls to rise without using any yeast.  If you don’t have any self-rising flour, you can easily make your own by using regular all-purpose flour and adding in 2 teaspoons of baking powder.  You can also make these rolls gluten-free by using gluten-free self-rising flour (or see instructions below on how to make your own).
  • Greek yogurt – I used plain full-fat Greek yogurt which adds a good amount of protein to these rolls, but you could also use vanilla flavored yogurt as it would give these rolls an extra touch of sweetness.  Sour cream will also work in place of the yogurt if you prefer to use that.
  • honey – the addition of honey both in the rolls and brushed on top just makes these rolls sweet, cozy and delicious!
  • butter – you only need about one tablespoon of melted butter to brush on top of the rolls once they come out of the oven to give them that buttery flavor we love in a dinner roll.  I used unsalted butter since I like to sprinkle a little flaky sea salt on top as well.
  • fresh herbs – I used a mixture of fresh sage and fresh thyme in these rolls, but rosemary would be amazing as well!  We are adding fresh herbs to the dough as well as sprinkling on top once they are done.
  • salt – this is needed to season the rolls and I like to sprinkle on a little extra flaky sea salt after baking!

How to Make Honey Butter Dinner Rolls

  1. Make the dough.  In a large mixing bowl using a spatula (or you could use a stand mixer using the dough hook attachment), mix together the self-rising flour, Greek yogurt, honey, fresh herbs and salt until all combined and a dough forms.  If your dough is too sticky, feel free to add in a little extra flour until the dough is easy to work with.
  2. Form into rolls.  Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and get a little flour on your hands so that the dough doesn’t stick.  Knead the dough a few times until you have a nice smooth ball of dough then cut into 12 even sections with a dough cutter or knife. Roll each section of dough into balls and arrange them in a prepared 11×7 small baking dish, making sure they are just touching to get pull apart-style rolls.
  3. Bake.  Place the rolls in the oven and bake at 375 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes (mine came out perfect at 32 minutes), until tops are golden brown.  Whisk together some melted butter, honey and fresh herbs and brush over the tops of the rolls.  Sprinkle with some flaky sea salt, if desired, and pull the rolls apart to serve warm.  Enjoy!

How to Make Gluten Free Self-Rising Flour

To easily make gluten-free self-rising flour, simply mix together 1 cup gluten-free 1 to 1 baking flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.  You just want to make sure whatever flour you use has xantham gum in the ingredients as that is an important baking binder needed to make these rolls.  If your flour doesn’t have xantham gum, just add in a teaspoon to your flour mixture.  You can store this flour in a sealed, airtight container in your pantry for up to 6 months.

Tips, Tricks and Substitutions

  • If you don’t have any self-rising flour, feel free to use all-purpose flour and add in 2 teaspoons of baking powder plus an extra 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • You can easily make these rolls gluten-free by using GF self-rising flour or make your own by mixing gluten-free flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt together.  Just make sure your flour contains xantham gum and if it doesn’t, simply add a teaspoon to your flour mixture.
  • I baked these pull-apart rolls Parker House style because that is what we always enjoyed growing up, but you could easily spread the dough rounds out on a baking sheet for individual round rolls.
  • To get crisper golden tops on the rolls, make an egg wash using one large egg light whisked and brush on top of the rolls before baking.
  • To make these rolls more savory you could add in some shredded cheese along with some garlic and fresh herbs.
  • These would also make great breakfast rolls with added sausage, eggs and cheese!

Prepping and Storage

To Prep:  You can easily make the dough ahead of time and store in a sealed, airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.  This dough is also great for pizza so you can store extra dough for a variety of uses.

To Store:  You can store leftover baked rolls in a sealed-airtight container at room temperature for 4 to 5 days, but I recommend enjoying these as fresh as possible as they tend to get chewy after a few days.  Feel free to warm rolls up in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them again.

To Freeze:  You can also freeze these dinner rolls for up to 3 months in your freezer.  When ready to enjoy, first thaw them overnight in the fridge and then wrap them in aluminum foil on a baking pan and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes.

    WOW! These turned out even better than expected 🤩 So soft on the inside and tasted so good. Excited to have found this recipe, thank you!

  3. Nanci Lamborn says:

    I made this in my rolls don’t look anything like yours. They stayed in sort of round balls rather than puffing up and they certainly didn’t look square. How did you get them to look like that? Can you post pictures of what they look like before baking in the pan?

    1. Kelly says:

      Hi Nanci! Yes I’ll post a photo on how they look prior to baking – I used a smaller baking pan so the rolls had just enough room so that they would touch when baking together creating that pull apart-style roll. Sorry if I wasn’t more clear!

    2. Kelly says:

      Also did you use self-rising flour? That is really important in this recipe as regular flour just won’t give these rolls that fluffy texture or spread out when baking.

  4. Roberta Rystrom says:

    Could sour cream be used in place of the yogurt?

    1. Kelly says:

      Yes sour cream will work as well! 🙂
