Servings 2 dozen rolls


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup regular oats, uncooked
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, divided
  • 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour or bread flour


  • Combine water, honey and butter in a small saucepan and heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and cool to 120 degrees.
  • Combine wheat flour, oats, yeast, and salt in a stand mixer. Gradually add the warm honey mixture then beat at a low speed for 1 minute. Add 1 egg. Beat for 2 more minutes at medium speed. Gradually add enough all purpose or bread flour for the dough to form into a ball (you don't have to add all of the flour if you don't need to).
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes). Divide dough into 24 balls. Place dough balls in a lightly greased 13x9 inch pan. Cover and let rice in a warm place (around 85 degrees) for about an hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Whisk the other egg then brush the egg over the uncooked rolls, then, sprinkle a few extra oats on top.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. After cooled slightly brush with melted butter.
