oatmeal dinner rolls

AWESOME. From here.

*about 30 rolls


  • 2 1/2 cups water or milk (I use whey or potato water)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or so)
  • 2 packages (or Tablespoons) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2+ cups white flour (as needed)


  1. BRING water, butter, and honey to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat, add oats; let cool to 110 degrees (or more like 120 degrees if it's 55 degrees in your kitchen like mine).
  2. STIR together yeast, wheat flour, salt.
  3. BEAT oat mixture into dry (can use electric mixer or wooden spoon) until smooth. Add white flour until it's the right consistency.
  4. TURN dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 10-15 minutes). Place in bowl and cover with towel.
  5. COVER and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until dough is doubled in bulk. (I put in gas oven - pilot keeps it warm)
  6. PUNCH dough down, and divide in half; shape each portion into 15 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place evenly into 2 lightly greased cake pans or cookie sheets.
  7. COVER and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
  8. BAKE at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
