Quick Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

Quick Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls


  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ½ - 3 ¼ cups white wheat flour


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in the bowl of a bread mixer. Add sugar, salt, oil, egg and 2 cups of flour. Mix until smooth. Add in remaining flour ¼ cup at a time (you likely will not need all of it) until dough is tacky, but not sticky and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Knead 5 minutes.
  2. Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes. Shape into 2 dozen rolls (they fit nicely 4x6 on a half size baking sheet). Let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375. Bake rolls in preheated oven for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.

Recipe Notes

You definitely don’t have to use whole wheat flour here and these are as tender and yummy as ever made with white flour.
