These rolls are free of processed white flour and oil. They are easy to make and can be used as burger buns or dinner rolls. They are also wonderful for breakfast with a little jam or summer fruit salsa. If you don't have a bread machine just mix as you would traditional dough and follow the recipe for forming the dough into rolls and baking them.
Whole Wheat Rolls
Makes 8 Rolls
1 cup hot water
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups spelt flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons apple sauce
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast (rapid rise , active dry, or bread machine yeast)
Add the ingredients to a bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer of your machine. Set your machine to the dough cycle and press start.
When dough cycle is complete, turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead a few times. Divide dough into 8 equal portions and form each portion into a round disk. Place disks on a baking sheet that has been dusted with oat flour or more spelt flour. Cover with wax paper that has been dusted with oat or spelt flour. Let rise in a warm place for one hour until doubled in size.
Set oven to 350°. When dough has risen so that the rolls have doubled in size bake for approximately 20 minutes until lightly brown on top. Try these rolls with one of my delicious burger recipes - Beet Burgers, Sweet Potato Burgers or Easy Black Bean Burgers.
