How to Make Whole Wheat Rolls

These are healthy light rolls which are mainly made from molasses and whole wheat flour. The rolls perfectly go well with stew or use in bunwiches, particularly roast beef.


  • 4 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 12 ounces cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or molasses
  • 3 tablespoon light melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cooking


  1. In a large mixing bowl, soften the yeast by adding warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Process the cottage cheese in a food processor for 20 seconds or until soft. Gradually add eggs, butter, and brown sugar. Mix until well blended.
  3. Blend the yeast mixture, whole wheat flour, and cottage cheese mixture. Add salt. And fold in the right amount of all-purpose flour to make a dough.
  4. Knead the dough on a flat, well-floured surface. Continue to knead for 10 minutes until smooth. To avoid the dough from sticking to hands, add the remaining flour, one teaspoon at a time.
  5. Use a cooking spray to coat the dough. Cover and set in a dry place to allow time for it to rise. Maximum time is around 45 minutes.
  6. Punch the dough, cover again and leave for another 5 minutes.
  7. Divide the dough into two and shape one part into 12 equal sized balls. Do the same to the other half.
  8. Grease the baking cups using a cooking spray and place the dough. Once finished cover and wait for 30 minutes until it doubled in bulk.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes at 375°.F preheated oven. Remove from pans.

Serve hot or mildly cold.
