Quick 'n Easy Honey Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

Quick 'n Easy Honey Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls from 101 Cooking For Two
Another stand mixer recipe. What good is that KitchenAid stand mixer that sets on your counter? Yes, it impresses your friends and family but really when was the last time you cracked it open and fired it up. Well do it tonight and make this healthy dinner rolls.

I simplified other recipes and make it single rise for less fuss and more speed. So fire that thing up and in 80 minutes you can be eat wonderful home made honey wheat dinner rolls.

Yep really that good. Moist with great taste and tender. Not that dry whole wheat taste.

Notes: I used my cold weather rising method and noted that in the recipe. This dough is very wet so use flour on your hands and surface. I let the stand mixer do the work of kneading.This only makes 6 rolls. Double for 12 rolls and use a cake pan,

You could vary this recipe in many ways. Do all white, add some onion flakes, top with sesame seeds...  Maybe a cinnamon roll variation?

Measure 2/3 cup of warm water (about 105) and add the yeast. Place butter and honey in small bowl and microwave for 20 seconds to melt butter.
  Add flours and salt to stand mixer bowl mix. After yeast mixture starts to foam (about 5 minutes) add all ingredients to stand mixer.  Mix on 2 with dough hook for about 8 minutes. After 2 minutes stop and scrap down sides if all dry is not mixed in.
(Cold weather option: turn on over to lowest temp and heat until that temp is reached the turn off oven.)
Turn dough onto floured surface and roll into a 2 inch diameter roll.

Cut into 6 even pieces and roll into balls.

Lightly dust  with flour.
Place into 9 inch cake pan sprayed with PAM. Cover with plastic wrap.

Place in the slightly heated over or other warm spot to rise. 30 to 40 minutes.

Heat oven to 375 and bake until golden brown. 16 to 18 minutes.

I have been enjoying the fruits of our stand mixer but that is all my wife's doings. I haven't used it other than as a meat grinder.

I doubled this recipe and reversed the ratio of whole wheat to white flour ( 1.5(3) cups of whole wheat and .5(1) cup of white) I then added egg whites instead of whole egg. They turned out light and fluffy and very yummy. I will definitely keep this recipe and use it again. May try modifying it further to reduce the sodium and fat content. But as far as quick and easy goes, this is exactly what I was looking for. YUM

Just have to come back and comment one more time. I have made these buns about 4 times since I found the recipe, using the alterations I mentioned above. The last 2 times I drizzled some honey on top, right before popping them into the oven, just to sweeten it up a bit for the kids. They loved them. Today I made them with about an hour and a half to spare before supper. I can't imagine anything yummier to have with supper than fresh buns hot out of the oven. Thanks again for this recipe.

What a great recipe! I just made these, switching the flour ratios, used an egg white (thanks polarpegs!), and subbed coconut butter for reg butter. They're great! light and fluffy, and nice and quick! Thanks so much!

They are absolutely delicious! I'm going to post the translated (German) recipe in my blog (linked of course!) if that is ok for you? I made them 3 times already and they get better with every batch. <3 Thank you so much or this wonderful recipe.

Have at it... I always say it is fine as long as you use your pictures and words in the instructions.

These rolls were delicious! I, too, swapped the ratio of whole wheat to regular flour. They were still light and fluffy, as the lady above said. Next time, I might try coconut oil instead of butter. I love that this recipe makes just one pan of rolls.

Thanks, they are one of my favorites. I like the one pan thing also since they easy enough to make it worth doing just one pan.
