Honey Whole Wheat Rolls Recipe

Honey Whole Wheat Rolls Recipe

Most of the farmers in our area grow wheat, so this recipe definitely represents my region. I bake these rolls often, especially when I'm making soup or stew.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted butter


  • 1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine butter, honey, egg, whole wheat flour, oats, salt, yeast mixture and 1 cup all-purpose flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining 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 15 balls. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rise in warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
  • 4. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove rolls to a wire rack; brush with additional butter. Serve warm. Yield: 15 rolls.
