Honey-Oat Pan Rolls


  • 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


  • 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.

    We really enjoyed these. Next time I'd only do 18 rolls in the pan to make each one a little bigger.

    Good rolls! Next time I think I will serve them with some honey butter.

    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.

    These rolls are hearty and new go-to roll recipe! Made the dough in the bread machine using the ingredients as given and they turned out great.

    I've been making these for years and they are always excellent. Will continue to make these for many years to come.

    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.
