  1. In large mixer bowl, with paddle attachment, add 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, dry milk and yeast. Mix 30 seconds to combine ingredients.
  2. In microwaveable bowl, heat water, oil and agave syrup to 120° to 130°F Pour liquid into flour-yeast mixture and beat on low speed 1 minute. Scrape bowl; cover and let rest 15 minutes.
  3. Mix in 2 eggs, salt, onion and garlic powder; beat on low speed 1 minute. Add remaining 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup at a time. Using dough hook, add enough of the remaining 1 cup all-purpose flour to form a slightly sticky dough.
  4. Knead with dough hook 6 minutes on medium speed. Add wheat germ and 1 tablespoon chia seeds; continue kneading 2 minutes.
  5. Place dough in large, oiled bowl, turn to coat top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, about 1 ½ hours. Lightly oil 18 standard-size, 2 1/2 x 1 1/4-inch muffin cups.
  6. Punch down dough; divide into 18 equal pieces. Shape into a smooth ball, and place in muffin cup. Cover; let rise until almost double, about 30 minutes. Carefully brush with egg wash and sprinkle remaining chia seeds on top.
  7. Bake in preheated 375°F oven 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown. Place rolls on cooling rack. Serve warm.
