Ingredients needed for this 30 Minute Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls Recipe
- 1 ⅛ cups warm water (see note below)
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- 2 Tablespoons active dry yeast (yes, it really is 2 Tbls)
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 3 – 3 ½ cups white whole wheat flour (more or less; see instructions below)
How to make these Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm water, oil, yeast, and sugar; let rest for 5-10 minutes or until frothy and bubbly (you can also make this recipe without a stand mixer – just use a big bowl, a large wooden spoon, and all your arm strength).
With a dough hook, mix in salt, egg and 2 cups of wheat flour until combined. Then add remaining flour – 1/2 cup at a time (dough will be sticky). Sometimes I need the full 3 ½ cups, sometimes I need less, and sometimes I need even more.
Spray your hands with cooking spray and shape the dough into 12 balls.
After shaped, place on lightly greased cookie sheet and let rest and rise for at least 10 minutes.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until tops are lightly golden.
