The Best Dairy-free and Egg-free Garlic Rolls

The perfect buttery homemade garlic rolls you’ll make this holiday season, with crispy edges and a soft center.

What you’ll need?

-Whole wheat flour: I love using it as it has a milder flavor and offers whole-grain benefits. 

-Instant yeast: just like active dry yeast, made up of granules; however, you do not need to activate it before it’s added to the recipe. 

-Water: this is to get the recipe ingredients to mix well together.

-Plant egg: I’m keeping this recipe plant-based, so I used plant egg. Feel free to use one egg for this recipe.

-Vegan butter: for the sake of this recipe being plant-based, I used vegan butter.


-Olive oil mixed with minced garlic and garlic salt.


-Melted vegan butter

-Dried basil or fresh
