Serves: 24

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 packages (¼ oz.) active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3½ cups whole-wheat flour
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted

Directions

  • In large saucepan, place milk and heat over medium heat until warm. Pour out ½ cup of the warm milk into a large mixer bowl and combine with yeast; let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Add remaining milk, honey, salt, canola oil, egg, and egg whites and beat well. Add whole-wheat flour and beat well. Gradually add enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5–7 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Divide dough into fourths, then divide each fourth into six pieces. Roll pieces between your hands to form a smooth ball. Place on cookie sheets about 3" apart. Let rise for 30–40 minutes or until doubled.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake rolls for 15–25 minutes or until golden brown and set. Remove to wire racks and brush with melted butter. Let cool.
