      Using a wooden spoon, stir in whole wheat flour and as much of the remaining bread flour as you can.
    7. 7
      Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface.
    8. 8

      Meanwhile, lightly grease a large baking sheet; set aside.

      So yummy! Very sweet, just how I like it. I was concerned I might end up with chocolate flavored rolls, but you can't taste the cocoa at all. They were vey hearty, but still soft and chewy. Will I make this one again!
