Honey Wheat Rolls

I saved this delicious recipe for a light wheat roll in my book of most-liked recipes. They are super easy to make. —Sandy Klocinski, Summerville, South Carolina
  • Total Time
    Prep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1-3/4 cups warm fat-free milk (110°-115°)
  • 2 large eggs, divided use
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. In a large bowl, combine 1 egg, honey, mashed potatoes, butter, salt, whole wheat flour, yeast mixture and 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; divide into 24 balls. Roll each into a 7-in. rope. Holding one end of rope, loosely wrap dough around, forming a coil. Tuck end under; pinch to seal. Place in muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Beat remaining egg; brush over rolls. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

    These were light and tasty. I used sugar free honey mixed with agave. It worked fine and made better for diabetics. They did stick to the muffin tin, so will not cook that way again. They raised up very large, so could make more than 24. I may freeze some before second raise, so can enjoy more often.

    I'm saving this in my bread and roll folder. Would like to make them for my Thanksgiving family dinner. Can I make ahead and freeze? Would I need to thaw and perhaps wrap in foil and reheat them day of dinner? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks

    These were very good. You can really taste the honey flavor. Accidentally added both eggs to the dough but I just added more flour and they turned out just fine. Made into the knots but I didn't put them into the muffin pans as I don't fancy cleaning them. I just put 12 on large cookie sheets and they came out beautifully. This receipe is going in the keeper book.
