Don’t be intimidated by homemade bread – once you make it, you’ll realize how easy it is to make from scratch… and how delicious it can be without added salt. These dinner rolls are great to serve with your favorite low sodium spaghetti sauce, or even as rolls for low sodium sloppy Joe’s!

These rolls are mixed, then left to rise for 1-2 hours, and then baked. It’s a fairly simple process from start to finish! I used a stand mixer, but you can use a little old fashioned elbow grease to knead the dough if you don’t have a stand mixer. These rolls are light, the perfect accompaniment to any meal – from breakfast to dinner.

One of the Best Low Sodium Bread Recipes

Good low sodium bread can be very difficult to find in stores! While bread may not taste very salty, traditionally it’s made with added salt, and can have added preservatives which up the sodium content.

I like making my breads from scratch, so I can control the amount of salt/sodium going into them. You can have easy and flavorful breads at home, even if you’re not an expert baker! Browse all our low sodium breads here to find your next favorite!

Ingredients for these No Salt Added Rolls

I love shopping for fresh produce through Misfits Market. They sell fresh groceries, pantry staples, and fantastic food finds (& great low sodium options) at a discount. Choose what goes into the box, get $15 off your first order, and save time with delivery to your door.

  • Milk – I used whole milk, but you can add whatever you have on hand or the lowest sodium version you can find.
  • Instant yeast – just 1 package is enough for this recipe.
  • Sugar – regular granulated sugar works great for this recipe.
  • All Purpose Flour – no fancy flour needed here, regular all purpose works great and gets nice and fluffy when baked.
  • Garlic powder – for a little added flavor in each bite.
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Egg – for the egg wash on top. It makes the rolls brown up nicely when baked.

How To Make Salt Free Dinner Rolls

  1. In a mixing bowl, or the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the warm milk, instant yeast, and sugar. Mix with a fork and allow it to sit for 5 minutes until the yeast starts foaming.
  2. Add in the flour, garlic powder, and olive oil. Mix over low speed for 3-4 minutes until the dough is springy, and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Place the dough into a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to sit in a warm place and rise for 1-2 hours, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  4. Take the dough, and divide it into 9 balls equal in size. Place each of them them in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover and allow to rise for another 30 minutes.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180 Celsius. In a small bowl, scramble the egg. Brush the tops of the rolls with the egg mixture. This will help them brown in the oven.
  6. Place rolls in the oven and bake uncovered for 22-25 minutes until the tops are golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool, and enjoy with unsalted butter! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

A Note On Adding Salt or Salt Substitute

I’ve baked these rolls a few times, and wanted to share a few notes on salt.

  1. I didn’t like the flavor of baking with a salt substitute – I added 1 teaspoon of a sodium free salt substitute, and did not like the flavor of the rolls very much. Not saying you couldn’t add it, but it wasn’t for me. It had almost a metallic taste to it.
  2. If you had the allowance to add a bit of salt, you could add it in step 2 when mixing. Or brush the tops with salted butter. I try to keep my recipes as low in sodium as possible on this site as everyone’s nutritional needs are different, so I left it out of this recipe… but wanted to highlight as an option for those who are more flexible with their sodium intake.
