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! —Jeanette Fuehring, Concordia, Missouri
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 or margarine
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 5 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided


  • 1. In a saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add oatmeal and butter; simmer 1 minute. Remove to a large mixing bowl and let cool to 120°-130°. Heat the remaining water to 120*-130*; add yeast. To the oatmeal mixture, add brown and white sugars, salt, yeast mixture and half of the flour. Mix well. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured board; knead 6-8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Add additional flour if necessary. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; divide in half and shape each half into 12 balls. Place 1 in. apart on two greased 13-in. x 9-in. x baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45-60 minutes. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes. Yield: 24 rolls.

"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."
