Even though these are whole wheat rolls they have a light texture and are soft and tender. This recipe reminds me of lots of happy meals with my family.—Wilma Orlano, Carroll, Iowa
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 10 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1/3 cup wheat bran
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups bread flour

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, pour boiling water over the wheat bran, flaxseed, salt and cinnamon. Add the honey and oil. Let stand until mixture cools to 110°-115°, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, whole wheat flour and wheat bran mixture. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough bread flour to form a firm dough.
  • 3. Turn 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 and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down.
  • 4. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
