Wonderful, tender dinner rolls that are more healthy than white flour alone. I used my bread machine to prepare the dough which made it really easy. Thanks for posting. I am saving in my "Tried and True" folder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients into the pan of your bread machine. Program the machine for Manual or Dough. Adjust the dough consistency as necessary with additional flour or water; the finished dough should be soft and supple.
  2. Allow the machine to complete its cycle.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and divide it into 12 pieces.
  4. Shape each piece into a ball. Place 1 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake rolls in a preheated 375ºF for 15 to 20 min, or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Brush with melted butter.
  6. Serve warm.
  7. Note: You can substitute white whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour and canola oil for the shortening in this recipe.
