Instant Pot No-Knead Dinner Rolls
Do you know why there are so many people in the world that don’t want to make their own homemade bread? More than likely it’s because it just takes a lot of effort and time. And if you’ve ever done one of those recipes where you have to knead the dough over and over again, you can probably relate to the fact that it really does take a lot of time to make something that just disappears in a matter of moments.
There’s no denying that homemade bread that you have to knead is mouth-watering and irresistible, but when you’re wanting something quickly, it’s just not really ever going to be an option.
This is why I’m super excited to share with you this Soy-Free Instant Pot No-Knead Dinner Roll recipe. Not only is there no kneading required, but your Instant Pot literally takes over and does all the hard parts for you.
Can I bake in my Instant Pot?
This recipe is proof! Not only can you bake, but you can sauté and make your own yogurt, too! And if you’re really looking for some more great recipes for your Instant Pot, here are some of my favorite recommendations:

How long should these dinner rolls rise before baking?
You’re going to want to do a couple of things to these dinner rolls to make certain that they rise properly. No one likes a flat dinner roll, right?!
Once the dough is mixed and has rested for about an hour or so in the Instant Pot, it’s time to get ready to go. You can remove the dough from the Instant Pot and separate it into 12 equal-sized balls of dough.
After that, I recommend covering them with a towel and letting them rise for about an hour or so. Obviously, they don’t need to rise forever, but enough time where they get that soft and fluffy look and feel.
What type of toppings would go well with homemade dinner rolls?
Toppings are literally one of the best parts. You can try homemade jam, butter or even a little drizzle of honey on top. And if you’re like me, you can even use the roll to soak up some of that goodness that is leftover on your plate from all the other dinner sides.
How do you keep homemade bread rolls fresh?
Everyone just assumes that homemade bread will stay as soft as store-bought bread does for a number of days or weeks, but unfortunately, that just isn’t the case. The store-bought loaves of bread have a lot of different preservatives and additives in them that keep them soft. Homemade bread doesn’t contain all those fillers and additives.
To keep your bread the freshest you possibly can keep it in a sealed plastic bag or container. And I’m talking air-tight. When it comes to bread, the air is going to be your #1 enemy!
However, if these rolls do happen to harden up a bit more than your liking, you can pop them in the microwave for about 12 seconds and they’ll be soft again instantly.
Why did my bread rolls not rise properly?
This is actually a common issue. More than likely, if your bread rolls didn’t rise properly, it means that your yeast isn’t active. Don’t fret, there’s a way to tell if your yeast is active before making up this entire recipe only to find out it’s not.
If you are wondering about your yeast, take a bowl of warm water and add about a teaspoon or so of yeast to it. Let it sit for about 15 minutes or so and come back and take a peek. If you see “foam” then it means that your yeast is active and your bread rolls shouldn’t have any issues. However, if there isn’t any foam, you need to buy some new yeast before starting this recipe.
Now that you’re full of knowledge about the Instant Pot and homemade bread, it’s time to head to the kitchen and try this awesome recipe that makes my Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners totally awesome!

- 1 ½ cups milk
- ¼ cup butter – plus another 3 tbsp for topping
- 3 tbsp honey
- 3 tsp yeast
- 1 egg
- 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- Set your Instant Pot to sauté and add in your milk, honey, and butter. Once the butter starts to melt, turn the pot off. It will continue to heat up but will not get the milk too hot. You want your milk to be about 110 degrees. Any hotter than this and it will kill your yeast. It is best to use a food safe thermometer.
- Once the milk is at the correct temperature, add in the yeast and give a quick whisk. Wait 5 minutes to be sure the yeast foams. If it does not foam you will have to start over, your bread will not rise.
- Once the yeast foams, add in your flour. I used about 2 ½ cups to get a somewhat sticky dough. Depending on the humidity in your environment you may need to use more or less. You want the dough to be sticky to the touch but not to the point where it will not come off of your finger.
- After your dough forms a ball, place your instant pot on the “yogurt” setting and place the lid on top in the sealing positing. Allow your dough to rise for 1 hour.
- After the hour, take your dough out and place it on a lightly floured surface. Separate into 12 small balls. (I used a scale to get mine exact, but you can eyeball it.)Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and cover with a clean towel and let rise for another 30-45 minutes or until they are doubled in size. Brush with melted butter and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown in a 400 degree oven.
