These tender rolls are relatively quick to make. Whole wheat flour and oats make them nutritious, too.—Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah

MAKES: 24 servings


  • 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 large egg

Nutritional Facts

1 roll: 103 calories, 3g fat (2g saturated fat), 15mg cholesterol, 126mg sodium, 17g carbohydrate (3g sugars, 1g fiber), 3g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 starch, 1/2 fat.


  1. In a large bowl, mix 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, oats, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat water, honey and 4 tablespoons butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add egg; beat on high 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide and shape into 24 balls. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Melt remaining butter; brush over rolls. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Excellent roll recipe. I mixed the dough by hand and it worked out well. I par-baked half the rolls in an aluminum pan for freezing."

"Made these for dinner last night and they were delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. The only thing I did differently was to add some honey to the butter before brushing the tops at the end. We're a small family of three, so the extras are in the freezer for another meal or two."
