Gluten-Free Egg Roll Wrappers Recipe Ingredients

A complete list of ingredients and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.

Tapioca Flour: This is a key ingredient in our gluten-free egg roll wrappers. It’s a great alternative to wheat flour and gives the wrappers a light, crisp texture.
Rice Flour: Another gluten-free alternative to wheat flour, rice flour helps to provide structure and a slightly grainy texture to our egg roll wrappers.
Xanthan Gum: This ingredient is a must-have in gluten-free cooking and baking. It acts as a binder and helps to improve the elasticity and texture of the wrappers.
Eggs: Eggs are used in this recipe to help bind the ingredients together and add moisture to the dough.
Fillings: The best thing about these egg rolls is that you can fill them with whatever you like. Consider your favorite veggies and proteins, and have it along with some gluten-free sweet and sour sauce for dipping – it’s optional but so good!

How to Store Gluten-Free Egg Roll or Wonton Wrappers

Store: If you find yourself with leftover gluten-free egg roll wrappers, simply place them in an airtight container and pop them into the fridge. They should keep well for up to 3 days.
Freeze: These wrappers freeze quite well. Just make sure you place a piece of wax paper between each one to prevent sticking. They can be stored in the freezer for future use for up to one month.
Thaw: When you’re ready to use your frozen wrappers, it’s best to let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator. This will make sure that they’re ready to roll when you are.

Top Tips 

Choose the Right Flour: For this gluten-free egg roll wrappers recipe, tapioca flour and rice flour are the best choices. They provide the right texture and hold the filling well. If you have a preferred gluten-free flour, feel free to experiment, but remember, the texture might change.
Don’t Skip the Eggs: The eggs play a crucial role in getting the texture just right and holding everything together. There isn’t really a suitable replacement for them in this recipe, so it’s best not to skip them.
Roll the Dough Correctly: The dough for these egg roll wrappers is quite fragile. To prevent tearing, keep the dough slightly thicker than usual, around ¼-inch. Rolling it out too thin or too thick can lead to issues when filling and cooking.
Keep the Wrappers Moist: As you work, keep a damp cloth or paper towel over the egg roll wrappers to prevent them from drying out. This makes them easier to work with and helps them hold their shape.
Experiment with Fillings: While the recipe suggests a specific filling, feel free to experiment with your favorite ingredients. Just remember to keep the filling amount to 3-4 tablespoons to guarantee that the egg rolls don’t burst during cooking.

GF Egg Rolls FAQs

Are egg rolls gluten free?

Well, perhaps a better question would be are egg roll wrappers gluten free? And the answer is no, not usually. But this easy recipe shows you how to make gluten free egg roll wrappers which taste great!

What’s the difference between egg rolls and spring rolls?

The difference between egg rolls and spring rolls is partly regional. Egg rolls are crispy and deep fried (or air fried) while spring rolls, or summer rolls, are soft and have a thinner wrapper. Interestingly, in the UK and some other countries, the term spring rolls is used for what Americans call egg rolls!

What dipping sauce goes well with these gluten-free egg roll wrappers?

If you don’t fancy making a hot and sour sauce, there are plenty of other options that pair well with these gluten-free egg roll wrappers. Consider a peanut satay sauce, soy sauce, or red chili sauce. Feel free to experiment with any other sauces you enjoy.

Can I prepare the dough in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the dough in advance. Simply follow the steps up to forming the dough ball. Wrap it tightly in cling film and store it in the fridge. When you’re ready to use it, allow it to come to room temperature before rolling it out.

Air Fryer Gluten Free Egg Roll Wrappers

By: Bella Bucchiotti
These easy air fryer gluten free egg rolls are perfect if you don’t eat gluten. I love making these gluten free egg roll wrappers for my egg rolls. I adore the flavour and texture and also how easy homemade egg roll wrappers are to make in the air fryer!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 8

Ingredients 

  • 1 Cup tapioca flour
  • 2 Cups rice flour 
  • 1 Teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Cup water, cold

Instructions 

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine tapioca flour, rice flour, xanthan gum, pepper, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and water together. Add eggs to the flour and use a wooden spoon to combine into a dough. Form a dough ball  
  • Lightly flour your work surface (using tapioca or rice flour). Place the dough ball onto the surface and cover with plastic wrap. Use a rolling pin to roll dough out to ¼-inch thin. The dough is very fragile so keeping it slightly thicker than the typical ⅛-inch will help it hold its shape and prevent tearing.  
  • Cut dough into 6 x 6-inch squares. Lightly dampen a paper towel or cloth and cover the eggrolls as you are working to prevent drying. I like to wet a stack of napkins and keep them on a plate so that I can place the egg roll wraps between them as I go.  
  • Add 3-4 tbsp of egg roll filling (recipe above)  to the center of the egg rolls.  Fold the corner over the filling, then fold the left and right side over the filling. Tuck and tightly roll to the unfolded corner.  
  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees F for 5 minutes 
  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Add egg rolls in a single layer. Give them a misting of cooking spray. 
  • Cook for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
