Oatmeal Rolls Recipe

Most people tell me what they like best about these rolls is they're so moist. I like them because they're simple to make...freeze well...and because I grew up on oatmeal and still love it! My husband and I have a small farm. We bought the land 15 years ago, then—along with out two children—lived in the basement of the house until we could finish building the upstairs ourselves! That finally happened 2 years I have a kitchen baking center plus two shelves that are strictly for my cookbooks.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 2-1/3 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup dry oatmeal
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add oatmeal and butter; simmer 1 minute. Remove to a large bowl and let cool to 110°-115°.
  • 2. Heat remaining water to 110°-115°; add yeast. To oatmeal mixture, add sugars, salt, yeast mixture and half of flour. Mix well. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

"I have made these a couple times now-love them, soft fluffy ,yummy. I sometimes use quick oats, and sometimes old fashioned. Last batch I added a few raisens to them. seems fool proof to me"

"Good, but we've made better oatmeal bread and rolls. Good use of leftover breakfast oatmeal though."
