How to MakeI have been trying to perfect my bread baking skills because sadly I’ve had multiple failed attempts at baking fresh bread so I came across this recipe for delicious honey whole wheat dinner rolls and couldn’t resist.

I was so excited that I had all the ingredients in my cabinet {except for coconut oil and enough honey} that I made it right away.

It was very simple and they turned out great!


  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/3 cup organic coconut oil or butter (I used olive oil because its what I had)
  • 2 tablespoons instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup organic pure honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine water, oil, yeast, and honey. Allow mixture to rest for 15 minutes.
  3. With a dough hook, mix in salt, eggs, and white whole wheat flour until combined. Add all-purpose flour 1/2 at a time.
  4. Shape dough into 12 balls and let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Place rolls onto prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.

After making them. I realized we’re not big “roll” people…lol. So after we ate one with dinner and the rest were just sitting because we don’t eat rolls with every dinner, so I decided to freeze the rest which turned out great. And when we want a few with dinner {or lunch} we just pull out what we want and heat for a few seconds (not too long or they’ll get hard).
