In my opinion, not many things in the food realm are better than homemade bread. It can take an average weeknight dinner into the gourmet category, and these rolls are no exception!
This is a simple, healthy dinner roll recipe that my family really enjoys… and I love how quickly they can be whipped up, thanks to the help of my faithful bread machine.
This recipe makes a large 9″x13″ pan of 24 rolls, but that isn’t a problem at my house considering how fast they disappear! If you can’t eat them all at once, you’ll be happy to know that they freeze well and reheat beautifully.
The addition of oatmeal and whole wheat flour gives these tall, fluffy rolls a hearty boost! I sometimes substitute wheat germ or wheat bran in place of some of the whole wheat flour for a little different twist.
If you love homemade bread, but don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen – this recipe is for you!
Recipe for Pull Apart Oat Rolls
- 2 ¼ cups hot water
- 3 Tablespoons butter, cubed
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- 1 ½ cups quick oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 packages instant active yeast (1 ½ Tablespoons)
- Melted butter for tops of baked rolls
Combine all ingredients in a 2-lb bread machine in the order listed. Run the dough cycle (if your machine has an option of dough cycles, choose the “short” one).
Roll into 24 balls (if dough is too sticky, flour your hands and/or add extra flour as needed) and place in a greased 9″x13″ pan. Let rise 30-45 minutes.
Bake 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown (cover with foil if necessary the last few minutes to prevent overbrowning).
Brush tops of warm rolls with melted butter immediately. Serve warm with butter.
These rolls are the perfect accompaniment to just about any meal.
