The Spunky Coconut Red Rock Rolls

This past year we have given up grains to assist healing and that meant we were basically starting over in our search for bread.   As you can probably imagine It was a wonderful moment when I saw Kelly's recipe for grain-free and egg-free sandwich rolls in her cookbook, Grain-Free Baked Goods & Desserts. When I first opened the book It was a no-brainer for me to decide what I would make first

I don't think I can adequately describe what it was like to be able to have a sandwich.  I expect it would be hard for someone who doesn't eat like we do to even fathom life without a sandwich. There is life without a sandwich, but really life is much better with them.  Trust me on this.

On the afternoon I decided to make them, they turned out so well I was anxiously awaiting dinnertime.  At first bite, I felt the stillness and peace inside of me as I tasted my sandwich. It was quiet at the table as everyone was focused on their sandwich creation.  We each made sandwiches filled with our choice of roast beef, turkey, bacon and veggies.  My husband paused long enough from his sandwich to say.  "These are really good!"  I could tell by the tone of his voice that his thoughts were the same as mine. These ARE really good!  There was a feeling of peace inside me knowing that this moment was the one moment we had been waiting for. 

Frankly, it is a rare treat to find a recipe that I can eat without making changes. Alright, I did make a change and left out the xanthan gum. But that is no big deal.  That is why I am excited to share this "jewel" with you!  I am delighted to tell you that you can find this recipe on Kelly's blog under the title of Sandwich Rolls.  Hopefully, this will make up for my last post that tempted you with Kelly's Divine Vegan Fudge Cakes posted with a link to her cookbook, but without a recipe. 

Although the recipe doesn't suggest this, but as you see in the pictures above, I have made this recipe shaped into hot dog buns.  I was able to leave out the xanthan gum. However, the last time I tried to stretch the recipe into 4 hot dog buns instead of 3, the buns fell apart when we cut them open.   I expect it would work if you left in the xanthan gum.   This is purely my own doing and not a fault of the recipe in any way.  It was fun for the boys to have a hot dog bun again.  

You really have to see Kelly's photograph of these SANWICH ROLLS aka RED ROCK ROLLS and give this recipe a try for yourself.   It seems we are always too hungry to get a good picture.  Who could blame us? 


  1. Aww! Thanks Debbie! I'm so touched! I'll put this on FB later today, since I just announced my 2nd edition a minute ago :-) Sending you tons of love! XOXO

  2. A 2nd edition? Awesome news! Sending you love back.

  3. Debbie, I've already heard so many good things about this recipe of Kelly's. I'm moving towards grain free, so I will eventually try these. ;-) Great job!
