People tend to snap up these fluffy, golden rolls, in a hurry whenever I take them to a potluck. It's a nice combination since rolls are easy to transport and one batch goes a long way. — Carol Forcum, Marion, Illinois

  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Nutritional Facts

1 roll: 115 calories, 2g fat (1g saturated fat), 6mg cholesterol, 245mg sodium, 21g carbohydrate (3g sugars, 1g fiber), 3g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1-1/2 starch, 1/2 fat.


  1. In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, yeast, salt and baking soda. In a saucepan over low heat, heat yogurt, water, butter and honey to 120°-130°. Pour over dry ingredients; blend well. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 portions. Roll each into a 10-in. rope. Shape rope into an “S”, then coil each end until it touches the center. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°.
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. If desired, brush tops with additional butter while warm. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
